Oct-17-07  notyetagm: Nice tactical shot, 21 ... ♗c5xf2!, based on the <UNDEFENDED> White c4-bishop and the <DOUBLE ATTACK> 22 ♕f3x♗f2 ♕b6-c6+ and 23 ... ♕c6x♗c4.

The White f3-queen <SHEILDS> the White g2-king from <CHECK> on c6 and so cannot also <DEFEND> the f2-pawn.

Wow, I am amazed that a FM (2345 rating) would miss the simple <PETITE COMBINAISON> 31 ... ♖d8x♖d1 <remove the guard> 32 ♗a4x♖d1 <illusory protection of c1> ♘c4-d6+ <discovered attack with check>,

winning the <UNDEFENDED> White c1-bishop.

21 ... ♗c5xf2! is a wicked tactical shot.

The point is that 22 ♕f3x♗f2 exposes the White g2-king to <CHECK> and then 22 ... ♕b6-c6+ picks up the <UNDEFENDED> White c4-bishop with a simple <QUEEN FORK>.

(VAR) Position after 22 ♕f3x♗f2 ♕b6-c6+:

Black wins a pawn for free and takes away White's two bishop advantage to boot.

Just as Reinfeld/Chernev used to write, <<<THERE ARE ALWAYS(!) THREATS AGAINST UNDEFENDED PIECES!>>>.

Oct-17-07  Shams: <notyetagm> please don't think me rude, but the tenor of your posts doesn't seem to reflect the fact that 99% of the posters on this forum are quite familiar with simple tactical motifs.

These are mainly intended as notes to myself for learning purposes.

And though they may be simple, notice how the 2300-rated FIDE master missed -all- of the tactics that I have discussed on this page.

Feel free to add me to your ignore list.

Oct-17-07  Shams: fair enough, but it seems a bit vain for you to use the forum as a personal notebook.

and it's one thing to say "white misses a simple tactic" (or "wicked" as you call it), it's another to belabor it. that's all I'm saying. we don't need the word "undefended" in all caps and colored brackets.

Do you notice anyone else making comments on this page? All I see is my work and your criticism.

<and it's one thing to say "white misses a simple tactic" (or "wicked" as you call it), it's another to belabor it.>

"Belaboring" is your word choice. I prefer to think of it as drilling, learning by repetition.

And if the tactics were really that simple, then why did a titled player (2351 is at least FM - FIDE Master) miss them?

<that's all I'm saying. we don't need the word "undefended" in all caps and colored brackets.>

Sounds like I should be in your <IGNORE> <LIST>.
