A nice little combo I made during a game. I think White could hold the position without that move, but it definitely take a psychological lead. I give as a puzzle the way it occured in the game (even if I lost time moving around at move 6), but they are better defenses that lead to a draw at least.
It is instructive to see how powerfully that pawn can jeopardize the king's position.
What was the point of black's 6 ... Rxg5?I'm a begginer, I don't urdestand, was that a blunder or was it trying to avoid something in particular?
6...Rxg5 was necessary to prevent 6.Qxh7#.
