McShane, Luke vs Short, Nigel
It is white to move. How should white proceed?
Good morning Susan.In the match Luke McShane played 42.Qc6 +.Why? In your opinion, what was he thinking?I immediately thought about what you said here:https://www.themaven.net/chessdailynews/ask/be-objective-play-the-board-and-not-your-opponent-LeFnNPvU2UWCOrZdT4l_tQ?full=1
There are some really nice zugzwang motifs inside this chess problem in both the main line and the variations.
White has a strong attack but is there a win?
You should be able to spot the tactic motif in 5-10 seconds.
This is a very famous chess position from 1869
2018 Summer Chess Classic is a 10-player round-robin tournament taking place from 15-23 May at STL Chess Club
Precise tactic execution is required
White has a strong attack but is it enough?
I created this puzzle for the 2017 SPFNO
This chess puzzles was one of puzzles I created for SPFNO
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 ]
