Can you spot the mate threat? #3

Sep 27, 2009, 3:31 PM |

Continuing my Can you spot the mate threat? series, here is another interesting position in one of my recent 5-minute blitz games.

The game itself was full of mistakes, as blitz games often are. Playing black pieces, at some point I lost the exchange. While Fritz scores this position even after proposed 25. ...Rc5, during the game I found myself struggling to survive the pressure along the f-h files.

A couple of moves later, my opponent made a blunder by playing 29. Rhg1, which led to his downfall immediately. Can you spot the winning combination?
