a couple of tactics!

Postby PaulWeaver » Tue Dec 20, 2011 9:01 pm

I was at the Galen Pyle blitz tournament the other day and witnessed a couple of tactics.
the first was in the Ruy. After 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5 a6 4 Ba4 Nf6 5 d3 black didn't pick up on white's KP was now protected and his wasn't. After 5 ... Be7?? there followed 6 Bxc6 and 7 Nxe5 winning a pawn with a crushing position.

the second tactic was this: White: Bb3, Ng5, Qe2, Re1. Black: 0-0 pawns on d6, e6, f7, Be7, Qc7, Nf6 these are the essential elements of the position. Black overlooked: 1 Bxe6 fxe6 2 Qxe6+ winning two pawns. on his previous move white had played Nf3-g5 preventing ... Rf7.
