This is a game I’m currently playing in a Semi-final tournament and I’ve thought to blog some of my games for a change! I will try and update this link as the game goes… shocking! – hehe – he has just “sacrificed” his Rook on B8 by capturing my Pawn on B5! Wonder what he is up to….is it my other Rook he’s after….!!? In the third image you can see his King pinned! He cannot move his Queen, because that will put his King in check! Read HERE about a PIN. And…he’s finally captured my Queen!…but that doesn’t matter as I have enough pawns left to promote! He has now moved his Rook to G7 and I’ve captured his Knight….and now….for the Pawn promotion! ReadHERE about the promotion of a Pawn! He’s “sacrificed” (or actually …he’s given away his Rooks!) his other Rook too! and has finally resigned…At the bottom of this post you will find a link to play through the game!
