Hot Scotch

by Oliver Reeh
9/20/2019 – In the diagram White played 17.Qh5+ Kg8 18.Be5 forking queen and rook. Good for Black: he has a move which does not lose instantly. Bad: it will be a very short-lived success. Enjoy!

Duelling mate threats

In effect, 17.♕h5+ (instead of the simple 17.♖xa5) boils down to a piece sacrifice, but White's decision to trust in his initiative soon proved to be right. Kudos!
