ChessPosition (see diagram) This is me playing a strong opponent on another site: I've just given away 2 pawns for attack and Juan's last move has been Nc2 to try and dislodge my dark-square Bishop. The combination comprises 2 consecutive moves after which Black achieves a decisive positional advantage (well, that's how it turned out: there's another coupe later on in the game, but that's another story:-). Let's see how you do.

Another hard one... Something in the air Bxf2, Qh4, e3+ discovering check then Qxa4 but I have to find an order of moves that works :/

I have difficulties with the position. Now I see again that I must train my OTB skills. :( Sometimes I feel myself stupid.

IMO, if 1.Bxf2 then Kxf2 with Kg1. And white don't have any difficulties.

Still thinking... :)

Now thinking about 1.e3

Ilmars Cirulis    (2006-12-06 18:30:45)

1... e3, not 1.e3. :)

First, I'd like to say that, imho, Juan played the best moves under the circumstances; the game went: 1..., Qh4! 2.Nxd4, e3! 3.Bxe3, Nxe3 4.Rc1, Nxf1 5.Kxf1, Bxa6+ and White is powerless against Black's pieces.... :-)

Thibault de Vassal    (2006-12-07 17:52:03)

So it works... Thanks Daniel :)

Hi, Daniel!

After 3.Bxe3 black has serious advantage.
But what about 3.Bc3?

Wishes of happiness!! :D

after Bc3 I think exf2+ followed by a check with the Knight on e3 would bring the White King too much in the open

Daniel, you are completely right. :) I didn't see after 1.. e3 2.Nxd4 Qh4 3.Bc3 exf2+ 4.Kd1 Ne3+ 5.Kd2 a move 5.. Qg5. Your attack is really powerful. ;)
