When you need a helping hand, chessically speaking, who are you going to call? Why, the chess correspondent of The Times of course.
I gather RDK has been covering exchange sacs over the last week or so. ... Rxc3s in Sicilians, ... Rxf3s , Gazza’s Rxb7 against Shirov to name but a few. I was just about to get around to that last one, funnily enough.
White to play
Kasparov - Shirov, Horgen 1994
My favourite from Ray’s bunch is Benko - Keres, Los Angeles 1963. An ISE and a rook ending. What’s not to like?
2014 ISE Count: 49
