3-2 VICTORY AND A GOOD STUDY POSITION

Kelly`s Heroes gained a 3-2 victory over Civil Service in last night`s match. 

My game with David Blair was the last to finish, so I only got a very short video clip of the teams before the games commenced.



A very interesting study position emerged in our game.  It would be a very good study position for club players, to try and visualise the possible variations without moving the pieces or using an online widget to move the pieces.

I would describe the position as quite treacherous for both sides. 

In the position below, black has just played f5 and white has responded by moving the Knight from e2 to g3, this is how the critical position emerged. Black to move?


Most club players will perhaps find this surprising if they check their visualisation with a computer programme to see what they miss? Or perhaps what they have correctly visualised?

It may be a rather more simple position for GMs or IMs?

Ecclesiastes 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.
