Here's a couple of good efforts from the last weekend of the 4NCL. Contrasting efforts too, and unsurprisingly, given that the winners were Robin Haldane in one game and the present writer in another. Robin's game was his nth win with the Haldane Hack: mine, my fifth win against a FIDE Master.
A couple of diagrams. The first shows Robin's game after Black's 13...Qe7-f8:
it's the sort of position where you start counting the pieces to see how much Robin's sacrificed so far - and then, when you find the answer's "none", you wait to see how much longer before Black resigns. "Not long", as it happened.
Robin does attack, I do defence: here's the position after White's 25.Kg1-h1.
All White's pieces are steaming over to support the pawns' assault on the Black king: more than half of Black's pieces are far away and there's a forest of their own pawns blocking the way between them and the battlefield.
You'd think they'd never get back in time. But they did.
