The position above is from a rated game against Fritz 14. Fritz rating was set at 2198 and Fritz is black.

It is me to move as white, I failed to find the best move and ended up with a draw.  When Fritz analysed the game, it pointed out a win for white which shocked me as it seemed so simple, yet I had failed to find it.

No doubt it is the type of position where a Chess master would find the key move quite easily but it is not so easy for club players like myself.

I have found this is a consistent weakness in  my game, I get a good position but fail to find the key move which turns a good position into a won game.

The key move is a tactical move, but it is not a blatant tactical move which instantly wins a pawn or a piece, it was more subtle than that, it was so subtle I failed to see it.

Ecc 12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
