Missed Clever Tactical Shot

Recently I reviewed some blitz games I’ve played on Chess.com over the past few months. I found an enjoyable game where I played very well but missed a clever tactical shot near the end of the game.

When reviewing the game, I recognized this position. I remember wishing, during the game, that I had more time on my clock to think and work out the tactics. On second observation, I found the killer move. MadChess, along with world-class chess engines Stockfish and Komodo Dragon, confirmed it’s the best move. Can you find it?

Very nice! Here’s the full game, with improvements suggested by MadChess.

  1. Nice little tactic shot. Took me a few seconds to see it. But it’s always easier to see tactics when you know there are tactics to be found!
