Up in smoke /chess
Another cigar photo, but this time with a chess theme. Photographer unknown/ I tried via Google to find it, but without any clear result.
NOTHING TO DO WITH CHESS!
CHESS TACTICS ANYONE?
Montcada International 2016.7.3 im Vera Siguenas, Deivy(2492)—im Oliva Castaneda, Kevel(2493). Position after 30 moves. The last move was 30.Bh5!? Rg8-h8(?), completely overlooking White’s threat (30…Rg5! is unclear)
I am not sure what was going on in Black’s head, but he probably thought that White had simply overlooked his last move (if the Queen retreats then Black simply takes the Bishop)
WHITE TO PLAY AND CRUSH!
Mate changes everything…
