Hi Mad Rook.
A wonderful instructive find. I stopped after I saw the flaw in the trap.
I never even considered the follow up. Oh the sweetness of it all.
White HAS to take the Bishop else he is lost! Brilliant.
White can take the Bishop and answer Rd1+ with Qf1 and the ending
is a very simple, but instructive to a novice, win based on the outside
White played 37.Qa1? and yes 37...Be2 does indeed do the trick.
Super stuff. Oh Kerboucher how did you let that one slip after spotting
the original back rank trick?
You could knock up a good book of instructive postions played by the
under 1400 players on here. Stuff you would not get from any GM games
and yet so very educational and enlightening.
Try pushing that book on the game snobs that believe only GM's can produce
the instructive stuff. Some fo the games on here are pure gold.
So much for using a box to help you study tactics. This cracking position hiding
these wonderful ideas would never be seen by a user, the box would
simply not let the user see it. And yet it was played by humans.
Get in there and dig them out for yourselves and stop kidding yourselves
that these things can show you anything of any value for OTB play v a human.
Mad One, you are the guy with all the boxes, any on a reasonable level,
(else what is the point) go for 36...Bb5.
I know it found Be2 but what about the piece of unsound human creativity
that lead to it. This is where it is at.
A Great inspiring thread. (I love a good cheapo it makes my day.)
If you are under 1600 and have not learned anything from the last two posts
then give up.
