Blind spots

Aug 7, 2009, 4:41 AM |

Quite often, if I see a good move, I can't think of an even better move which might be there. In this game, I totally overlooked the obvious. Can you spot the right move?















I played Nf5+, forcing the king to take my rook. After that, I took black's queen with my knight. A nice sacrifice, but in this case clearly not the best move.

I really need to get over these blind spots ;-) I guess I'm to keen on material gain (especially when I can nick the queen) that I overlook stronger moves.

Always learning!
