Exercise #152

White to move. What would you do?

Solution

1. Rxe7 Qxg3 2. hxg3

In this game white realised the black queen on h3 is trapped and therefore he can win more material by first playing Rxe7, and then capture the black queen on the next move.

Ie. the solution is much better than 1. gxh3? Rxe2
