This game was between Kramnik and Caruana at the Berlin Chess Candidates Tournament
White to move!
That was a wild game. Kramnik still had the edge after 43.b4?!, but he then erred again on the next move to throw away a big edge.
The really losing errors happened 15 moves later.
At first I got a few draws and then I found the right first move.
1.c4 Rg22.c5+ Kxc53.Rc1+ Rc24.Rxc2+ Nxc25.Kxc2 f36.Bd3 Kd67.b4 h48.Rb8 Rxa79.d8=Q+ Bxd810.Rxd8+ Ke511.Rh8 f212.Kd2 Rf713.Bf1 Rf414.b5 Kd415.Ke2 Kc516.Ke3 Ra417.Kxf2It's a winning position for white.
Be sure to find the main line in addition to the more prosaic wins- in other words, also find black's best moves, too.
Caruana has just played 64.Bb7??. Can you find the reply Ms. Yifan should have played?
This was one of the chess problems in the recent Arves Studies Solving Tournament. How does white win this?
Yu Yangyi versus Ray Robson (Millionaire Chess 2014)
This is among the first ending studies I ever encountered as a teenager decades ago. How does white win?
Long time commenter Cortex gave me this puzzle here on Susan's site in 2014 or there about as a challenge.
What can white do with this attack?
It is important that white plays accurately here.
In a chess game, winning opportunities may not come often. And when they do, you must be able to spot it.
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 ]
