A Couple More

TCT Step 5 is hard but I am chipping away at it. I even had several groups of problems > 95%, which is somewhat misleading. These are quite challenging for me.

I have a ever increasing list of positions that I need to work on if I ever hope to improve. These are positions that I either did not understand or did not play correctly but can understand later. Here is a pair of puzzle-like situations that I recently added, and the first one is a beauty:

Black to Move (both)

Rfxf3+ 32. Bxf3 {Kd2?! Qg5+ leads to Rxg1+} Bf1+! {discovers an attack on White's Queen}

Rfxf3+ {either Rook can sacrifice first and it works out the same} 32. Bxf3 {Kd2?! elicits Qg5+ which pushes the King back to his first rank, setting up the skewer Rg1+} Rxf3+ 33. Ke2 Bg4! {the hanging Bishop can be pinned but the King is under a discovered attack. Now 34. Qg2 is met by Rg3+, and 34. Rg1 is met with Qg5 which in turn threatens to once again Black can use his Rook to chase the Queen with a discovered check or, depending on what White does, even play Qe3+ Kd1 leaving White with a lost position. Moving the King back doesn't work either because of similar discoveries and the threat of Qa5 attacking e1.}

The whole game if anyone was curious, mistakes and all:

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.Bc4 Bxc3 5.dxc3 O-O 6.Bg5 d6 7.Nd2 Be6 8.Bd3 Nbd7 9.h3
h6 10.Bh4 c5 11.b3 Qa5 12.c4 Nh7 13.O-O f5 14.f3 g5 15.Bf2 f4 16.g4 fxg3 17.Bxg3
Bxh3 18.Rf2 Nhf6 19.Nf1 Rf7 20.Ne3 Nh5 21.Bh2 Raf8 22.Nd5 Qd8 23.Be2 Ndf6 24.Ne3
Nf4 25.Bxf4 gxf4 26.Rh2 Rg7+ 27.Kf2 fxe3+ 28.Kxe3 Rg3 29.Qh1 Ng4+ 30.Kd3 Nxh2 31.Qxh2
Qh4 32.Rg1 Rxg1 33.Qxg1+ Kh7 34.Qe3 Qe1 35.a4 Bf1 36.Bxf1 Qxf1+ 37.Kc3 Rxf3 38.Qxf3
{White resigns} 0-1
