Pin (3)

Forcing the pin:
Sure enough, our opponent will be aware of the dangers that pin may cause, and will try to avoid it. But if we are precise enough we can give the game the course we want:
Peredy,Ferenc (2311) - Malanca,Adrian (2247)
Budapest FS02 IM-B Budapest (2), 02.02.2003


Black first activates his rook: 30...Rd1+! 31.Kh2


And now forces his opponent’s king to step on a “mined field”:
31...Rh1+! 32.Kxh1 Qxh3+


For the hyper important tempo Black sacrificed a whole rook, and was awarded with mate. 0–1

    Nice!

    @merchco: No need to move the pieces on the board, they are very forcing moves with limited replies each time for white. But the idea is to try and calculate it in your mind anyways..

    @amontel

    if u sacrifise the queen first, white would have taken ur queen with the king and it might have escaped

    Yes, Timmy, you are right. And in general, it is better to keep things simple, eventhough sometimes it might not be that beautiful.

    I, also, thought about sacrificing the queen first. But, 30...Rd1+ 31. Kh2 Qxh3? (white is not forced to move 32. gxh3) 32. Kxh3 and white fights on. 31...Rh1+! forces 32. Kxh1. Very nice tactic, Dejan.

    Yes, I did not play any games until yesterday, I guess 2200 is given to GMs, and 1200 is the standard :)))

    I would have sacked the queen first instead, then mated with Rh1. Much more exciting :)

    And some people will not yet try to follow the diagrams, and train their calculating abilities this way, but complain instead :)))

    This is a waste of time since technology allows for players to move pieces to understand the problem more clearly  but yet some people will not co operate
