Today’s winning 5-sec tactics




Alba Iulia  International (Romania)  2016.3.16  im (2420)Petrisor, Adrian-Marian–(2200) Ognean, Mihnea-Ionut. Position before Black’s 28th move.  Black is quite ok, White not threatening anything special.  A good and solid move, for example, is 28…h5!?, giving luft to the Black monarch.

But is that really necessary?  Notice that White’s c-pawn is enprise…my question to you, dear reader, is this: CAN BLACK CAPTURE THIS PAWN?
