Challenging Tactic


In this blitz game of chess played at the internet chess club, Black is probably already busted due to his very breezy Kingside. As usual White had to let a computer chess playing program named Houdini find the throat  slashing move after the game was finished.

See if you can find the move that very quickly turns off Black’s lights. Look under the chess diagram for the double exclamation mark chess move that sends Black to the morgue.

Difficult Tactic

The move that forces LetterQ from Canada to tip over his King is Qe4. Do you see why? If Black nonchalantly plays Rb8 to remove his Rook from danger, then Rd8, Bf8(blocking the check) and Bh7 check is curtains for Black!
