Turkey Shoot Chess Tournament
This weekend I went to San Antonio for a 2-day, 5-round chess tournament, and got 4 out of 5 in the u1800 section. I did not play anyone below 1600, and only lost to a 1750 rated guy. My rating went up from 1395 to 1607. I feel like it was probably the best tournament I ever played.
I will put the winning tactic as a puzzle and please try to solve them BEFORE you look at the game it was based on.
This puzzle is based on the winning tactic in my first game.
This is the game from round one:
