Circle 7, Step 4 Complete

I still have more review to do on TCT Step 4, but for now I am feeling good :-). Looking for Trouble awaits a bit reviewing before tackling this last circle (might be a good one to check out Blue Devil!). As strange as it might sound to other people, I am pleased that I have less than 600 problems to go!


Here is another installment of "Then What?". I think shows how all my focusing on TCT has left me weaker at spotting novel stuff. I saw that Re4 pretty much forced Kf8 but didn't see further and I didn't play it. That's blitz for you :-\. See if any of you spot White's best reasoning for Re4.

It turns out Re4 Kf8 Be5! threatens Bd6+ and (if ...Ke8) Bxg7. On my own I could see trade down possibilities with Be5 (something) Rf4, but this is not as strong.

As someone rolling around in Circle 1, I'm jealous! Looking for trouble is great: I read a lot of it one day at Borders :)
BTW, 95% is damn good on TCT level 4! That is a tough level that I never made a serious dent in.
Thanks, I hope it isn't just stupid memorization!
