From Pula. Grandmaster versus amateur! Always a wonderful lesson to be learned. When I was younger there were not many grandmasters around, and it was always a great occasion when I was paired against one. Here Hajek is trying his best, but Holmes is relentless. White had just played 24.Bg2, oblivious to Black’s threat.
BLACK TO PLAY AND WIN!
