Exercise #30

tactics exercise 30
White to move. What will you do?

Solution

tactics exercise 30 solution

1. Nf5+ Kg6 2. Rb6+, followed by Rxh6

The point behind white’s initial move, Nf5+, is to gain a tempo (black must move out of check) and at the same time add another attacker on the black bishop, which makes Rb6+ and Rxh6 possible–since the knight will defend the rook on h6.
