Quite the combo. master......very nice!!
It all makes such perfect sense after you've been through it a few times. And then you remember what Spielmann said: "I could have made any of Alekhine's combinations, but I can't get the positions where the combinations begin".
nice, but where is today' s puzz?
If you mean puzzle then it is on page one. I'm not sure what puzz means.
It would have been easy if at 5. f6+ Kxf6. Why was this not played, to take the pawn easy? Would it have been easier to be down a rook than face an advancing king? Could Kxf6 have been a more correct move? I don't have shredder or any computer engine to check on this. Could someone lend a hand plea?
After 5...Kxf6 6. Rxd7, white's material advantage would be greater than the puzzle variation, even though in the puzzle variation white has a queen.
