RELOAD: using right piece to exploit alignment
Compiled by notyetagm

<<<<RELOAD>: all it really means is that the defender is not <DEFENDING> a critical square -enough- times, enough times to keep -all- of the opponent's attacking pieces out.>>>

RELOADING is the terminology used by Martin Weteschnik in his new book "Understanding Chess Tactics" to succinctly describe what I call the principle that <One Defender Cannot Keep Out Two Attackers>, especially a single pawn defender.


Salov vs J de la Villa Garcia, 1987

Black has just played 14 ... ♕d5-d7.

White to play: 15 ?

click for larger view

Notice the <ALIGNMENT/CONFIGURATION> of the Black heavy pieces and king: Black a8-rook, Black d7-queen, and Black e8-king.

White would -love- to place his light-squared White f3-bishop safely on the c6-square, where it would <FORK> the Black a8-rook and d7-queen as well as <PIN> the Black d7-queen to the e8-king.

In Weteschnik's outstanding "Understanding Chess Tactics", page 77,:

But here is a little trick for you: it helps a lot to be on the lookout for squares you wish to place your pieces on, even if your wish doesn't seem possible. The dream square might become reality by moving another(!) piece to that square first, paving the way for you to occupy it once more; this time with the piece you initially envisioned for that glorious square.

So to occupy the c6-square with the White f3-bishop, Salov (White) first occupies this square with his White d4-knight: 15 ♘d4-c6!! (Burgess).

Position after 15 ♘d4-c6!!

15 ♘d4-c6!! is a perfect example of the <RELOADER> concept.

From an ICC bullet game by GM Harikrishna:

With 25 ♘f3! White sets a devilish tactical trap. The trap is sprung after 25 ... ♗g4? 26 ♕x♖f7!, winning material based upon the <DOUBLE KNIGHT FORK> <RELOADER> on the g5-square.

Radjabov vs Topalov, 2008

Position after 18 ... ♘g6xe5!

click for larger view

Topalov's outstanding 18 ... ♘g6xe5! gets my vote as the most instructive <RELOADER> of all-time, since it does not involve either a <KNIGHT FORK> or a square lined up with the enemy king, as most <RELOADERS> do. Black simply wants to get his h5-rook onto the e5-square so that he can <SKEWER> White's two <UNDEFENDED> minor pieces (e4-♘,e3-♗) ehich are conveniently already lined up on the e-file.

After 19 f4x♘e5? ♖h5xe5 Black regains his sacrificed knight with the <ROOK SKEWER> of the <UNDEFENDED> White e4-knight and <UNDEFENDED> White e3-bishop, winning two pawns for nothing.

(VAR) Position after 19 f4x♘e5? ♖h5xe5

click for larger view

What makes this tactical blow even more impressive is that the super-tactician Radjabov overlooked it. Simply -amazing- tactical acuity by Topalov.


click for larger view

Mamedyarov's great <RELOADER> 30 ♖e1xe6!! in his game against Nielsen is based on the simple tactical point that the Black f7-pawn <DEFENDS> the e6-square -only- -one- time, and thus cannot keep the White c4-bishop, d4-knight, and e1-rook out of this square.

click for larger view

32 ♕h4-f6+! forces 32 ... ♕b6x♕f6 33 e5xf6, <RELOADING> on the f6-square to <REINFORCE> the <PIN> on the <COMPLETELY PINNED> Black g7-rook with a pawn, winning a whole ♖ instead of ♖ for ♗.

RELOAD: one defender (Black b6-queen) cannot keep out two attackers (White e5-pawn, White h4-queen).

The f6-reloading square is lined up in a <PAWN ATTACKING> alignment (f6-g7) with the <COMPLETELY PINNED> Black g7-rook.

Here is a brilliant reloader example, from an ICC 1 0.

click for larger view

Black was just blundered with 47 ... ♔g7?. The White queen now has a forking square on f6, where she double attacks the undefended Black e7-rook and the Black g7-king. Although this forking square has only two defenders versus three White attackers, it appears to be safe for Black because the White queen is the first attacker.

But after 48 ♕f6+!, anyway, Black has a big problem. If he tries to save his e7-rook by defending it with 48 ... ♔f8?, then he drops his g6-rook to the discovered pin 49 ♕xg6!. So Black must play 48 ... ♖xg6.

Now White -reloads- on the f6-square with his g5-pawn by playing 49 gxf6+, and the pawn forks the Black e7-rook and g7-king just like the queen did!

click for larger view

This type of reloading is called "reloading with a similarly functioning piece". The tactical point was that f6 was a forking square for both the White f5-queen and the White g5-pawn, so reloading with the g5-pawn fully compensated for the loss of the White queen on this square.

After 49 ... ♔f8 50 fxe7+ ♔xe7 51 ♖a4 a6 52 ♖b4 White has a technically won endgame.

click for larger view

Reloading on the f6-square has allowed White to trade ♕♙ for ♖♖, killing off any Black hopes of counterplay and leaving Black with a simplified lost position.

In the actual bullet game White blundered and "reloaded" with his f4-rook (49 ♖xf6? instead of 49 gxf6), which did -not- compensate for the loss of the White queen on f6 because the f6-rook does not fork the Black king and rook like the f6-pawn does!
