The S. Coles - V. Kumar game. Brilliant.
What makes it all the more instructive is that here. White to play.
[FEN "r1bqkb1r/pppp1p2/4p3/6p1/4P3/4nNP1/PPP3PP/RN1QKB1R w KQkq - 0 12"]
White must have seen the double attack 12.Qd4 failed to 12...Nxc2+
Having seen that trick his sense of danger no longer registers it.
How many times does that happen?
A player spots the first trick and falls for it in a slightly different setting
a few moves later. Something going on in the chess brain there.12.Qd3 Bc5 13.Qc3
[FEN "r1bqk2r/pppp1p2/4p3/2b3p1/4P3/2Q1nNP1/PPP3PP/RN2KB1R b KQkq - 0 13"]
I'll be using that one some time. It's in the Chandler DB.
It's only fair to offer something back.
Sooner or later you will get around to Internet Chess. I have hundreds of humeorus
and instructive examples. http://www.redhotpawn.com/blog/blogindex.php
Feel free to lift whatever you want. No need for a mention I don't need the hits.
(though I give here a plug in the latest column.)
