Zwischenschach lets you save pieces with tempo
Compiled by notyetagm
--*--

Add the great Miles vs Martin Birmingham 1977 example to this collection.

Instead of immediately recapturing his queen with 1 bx♕a3?! cx♖b5 which would cost him the exchange, -first- Miles inserts the <ZWISCHENSCHACH> 1 ♖b5-b7+! to save his threatened b5-rook and -then- he captures the queen with 2 bx♕a3.

The tactical sequence which inlcudes the <ZWISCHENZUG> leaves Miles a piece ahead, in contrast to the capturing sequence which omits the <ZWISCHENZUG> which leaves him an exchange down.

Such is the power of the <ZWISCHENZUG>.
