Puzzle from one of today's games

Mar 4, 2018, 9:03 AM |

Hello everyone,

It has been quite a while since I've posted here, but I just got done playing a game that I am particularly proud of. It was a 15 | 10 game played here on chess.com, and the reason that I am pleased with how I played is because I was able to see my opponent's threats consistently, avoided mistakes, and calculated a winning line to close out the game. Another aspect of my play that I'm happy with here is that I "felt" the critical moments, especially at the end when tactics won me the game. It may not seem like much to stronger players, but to me this was a nice confidence boost!

Since I don't have an excess of time today, I am going to post a tactics puzzle involving the line that I calculated at the end of the game. I would be interested to know if you solve it, and how long it took you to see it (especially higher rated players reading this).:

Here is the full game (with the computer analysis), in case any of you would like to check it out:

Thanks for reading, and enjoy your day!
