With juvenile force...

9/18/2010 – ...the 'experienced' Peter Svidler had ripped open the kingside of 'rising star' Fabiano Caruana at this year's NH Chess Tournament, but now had to find the right way to finish off Black's monarch for good. What would be your choice? A) 24.Ba4 Bxa4 25.Rxe7; B) 24.Bxd5 Bf5 25.Qg3+ (Bg6); C) both continuations win – with such a wrecked king position Black cannot survive.
