20th European Teams  Reykjavik  2015.11.13   gm  Kveinys, Aloyzas–gm  Ivanisevic, Ivan.  Position after 33 moves.  It might look as though Black is quite ok (he is attacking the Queen and the h2-pawn) but appearances can be deceiving!

WHITE TO PLAY AND CRUSH!

20th European Teams  Reykjavik  2015.11.13   Kantans, Toms–Nyysti, Sampsa: 19…Bxf2+!  Surprise!  0-1  A bit premature, but quite reasonable.  If 20.NxB RxN and White can not take the Queen because of a mate in 4.  And if instead 20.Kh1 then simply 20…BxR.

20th European Teams  Reykjavik  2015.11.13   Kveinys, Aloyzas–Ivanisevic, Ivan: 34.Rxd6 Qxd6 35.Nb5+ 1-0  The Queen goes after 35…PxN 36.Rc3+
