Pinwheel in Action
I'm what i think is a pretty interesting scenario from a recent game at a chess club. It had been a long night, and my opponent was quite strong. The position presented is from memory so doesn't include all moves up to this point.
My opponent had just managed to promote a pawn to his second queen. It meant that i could not allow him a single move or else there was a chance i would be at least drawn or potentially lost. One important thing to note is that my knight is pinned, and is effectively prevented from providing a check or mate.
We pick up the action after a long think after i've convinced myself that i should move forward with attempting mate. My thought was that i could at least take his two pawns as he had no response other than shuffling his king back and forth between B8 and C8.
