Mighty knights

by Oliver Reeh
7/10/2021 – In the diagram position White has brought almost all of his pieces in position to attack the black king. However, in order to exploit this menacing show of force White needs to play all over the board. But he will be rewarded with checkmating the opponent or a decisive material plus - enjoy!

Brian, the position after Qxb7 is completely winning. Black could have prolongued the agony, but if he stays passive, just imagine the white king coming to f5 (and g6) helping in a mating attack.

White won the queen, but he was only +2 at that point, since he had to give away the store to do it.
