    Another moving book cover, another crossword!

    A look at a couple of candidates games leading
    onto RHP games in similar positions.

    How have I linked all together.

    Reti (a crossowrd clue) has a game in the moving book gif book
    which two Red Hot Players have sprung on their opponents.

    In the Caruana v Svidler game you showed a drawing repetition ending in Kh2 ..Rh5+ Kg3 ..Rg5+ Kh3?? which wouldn't draw but lose on the spot to ..Rh1+ Qh2 ..Rh5+ winning the Queen outright. White obviously has to play te King back to h2 and not h3 in order to repeat the position safely..

    Hi Marinkatomb,

    You are right, I'll nip in and correct it.

    Thanks .

    (fixed. Actually you were meant to spot the flaw in that line as well.)
