Black to play and win

NN v allanbeard, Playchess




As a child, we all want to be world champions; then we realise that isn’t going to be possible; so GMs; so IMs; so….just win some games or the occasional tournaments. Now that I am retired from my work of the last thirty years, the ambitions are to win some blitz games, and I have also started playing in the Playchess Wednesday afternoon 3min+2sec blitz tournaments.

The above position is the best tactic (and relatively easy) from the 175th Playchess tournament, which I managed to win. Most of my games were pretty routine, decided either by a simple blunder or my more typical positional pressure approach.


1….Rg2! is fairly easy to see; and after 2 Rg2 Qh3+ 3 Rh2 Qf3 mate.
