Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-14-06  notyetagm: After 23 ♗d7?? Anand forces instant resignation using the <REMOVE THE GUARD> tactic 23 ... ♖b4!.

The point is that the White a4-queen must not lose contact with the loose c2-mating focal point else Black (Anand) mates with ... ♕c7xc2#. But after 23 ... ♖b4!, the White queen is <DOMINATED>, having no safe square from which she can guard c2.

<REMOVE THE GUARD>. Attack the defender (White a4-queen) with a non-attacker, a non-mating piece (Black b6-rook) from a square not in the defensive complex (b4-square) and <DOMINATE> the defender.

Jun-14-06  you vs yourself: Amazing that a 2470+ player missed such an easy tactic. I guess that's a lesson for all of us, patzers, to stay tacitcally sharp by studying them and being alert during the game.
Jun-14-06  notyetagm: <you vs yourself> That's why chess is so difficult. There is no one standing over your shoulder to tell you "Hey, buddy, 23 ♗d7?? is a gross blunder. Play 23 ♗d3 instEad".
Mar-31-12  CChess013: what will be if white move a or f rook on c3? white night take rook, queen take b4 rook or I missed something?
Mar-31-12  john2629: CChess013 and Nxa2+ taking white queen in your variation... anyway in any variation black wins more than enough material.
