This was one of the puzzles I created for 2017 SPFGI
White to move. How should white proceed?
a) 1...Kb8, 2. Qb6+! (Black Bishop pinned by White Bishop on h2) Qb7, 3. Qxb7#
b) 1...Bb6, 2. Bb8+!! Qxb8 (2...Kxb8, 3. Qxb6+ mating next move) 3. Nb5+! axb5, 4. Qa1+ Ba5 (forced), 5. Qxa5#
3...Qa6 and White is completely lost.
2. Bb8+!! (better than 3. Nb5+?)
In this position, it is white to move.
Caruana vs Grischuk at GCT Paris
This is a must know pattern in K & P endgame
How quickly can you work out white's winning plan here? This is a good one.
White seems to be in trouble. But is there a way to escape?
This is a game between GM Sadorra and IM Hambleton.
White is up in materials but how to get the black King out?
This is one of the chess puzzles I created for 2017 SPFGI
Black is up in material but white has space advantage.
what if you do 1. Qb1?? and your opponent does ..c1=Q!! then white is screwed.
For me, this is Rambo Attack Tactic [ 1) R5e8+!! Kh7 2) Qxd2! R8xd2 3) Rexa8 ~ Black resigned 1-0 ]
