A cornered king...

7/22/2009 – ... with the opponent already controlling one long diagonal and about to occupy the second usually means red alert. Here White has played 30.Qe5 holding a pistol to Black's head. What do you think about that? A) A real knockout blow, forcing immediate resignation; B) Not bad, but a surprising trick lets Black escape into an endgame; C) The move is rubbish, throwing away White's entire advantage. The solution is here, but first ponder it with a larger version of the diagram.
