There comes the inevitable moment in my games when I have to ask myself ‘Should I resign now or should I play on a few more moves?’
In this week’s problem, the grandmaster playing White resigned, although he had three moves by his King which held the draw.
Can you see how White can draw this game?
The answer to last week’s problem is that White uses his space advantage on the kingside to win as follows :-
1. Qxg7+ Kxg7 2. Rg3+ Kh6 3. Bc1+ Kh5 4. Be2+ Kxh4 5. Bg5 mate
