Chess.com TV - YGA by GM Magesh - May 1st, 2013

Dear Chess.com TV Viewers,

          This week we started things off with this 2 move puzzle that was quite tricky

 The answer was 1.Ra1+ Qa1 2.Rb7!

LaurentS was the first one to solve it, but since he was not able to stay on for the analysis the chance was passed on to Swayams who was the second person to answer it. Swayams also happens to be an International Master. This didn't last long either as Swayams had some internet problems and hence the viewers got a chance to go at another puzzle to get their games analyzed.

Here is the second puzzle I gave,

1.h6! is the winning move. White has to stop black from playing h6 and escaping to h7 square. After h6 black cannot escape mate either with Ke7 and Rf8 or Ke7 and Rg1. 'MLK' was the first person to find the answer to this one and he happens to be a 13 year old kid! 
This is the game
A very nice game, black was able to take control of the game as soon as white started neglecting his piece development. A good example of co-ordinated piece play.
