    This came from a 15 minute unrated game of mine.  As usual, tell me if there's a mistake with the tactic.  (As a note, the moves for white are my opponent's responses.)

    I'm not sure I understand.  What happens after 4. Raxc1?

    In a game, there exists a few degree of tactics. Sometimes, a tactic leads to mate, other tactics win material, and remains this one that only improve position advantage.

    The tactic above improve material advantage.

    what happens after Raxc1? Is that it?

  • #6

    After Raxc1, black can save the queen with something like Bd6 and be up a piece. That is the point of the puzzle, winning material, as cavalcanti explained.
