Weak Squares Around The King

The solution to last Monday’s problem is that Black plays 1…d5!. After that , the White bishop on b3 is caged in, and can never take part in the game. Black is effectively a pieces up after he plays c6, Bc8 and Bf5.

About Steven Carr

I am 57 years old, and I am trying to improve my standard of play. From 1998 to 2012, I had a break from chess, playing very few games in that period. I now play more competitive chess and I currently have a English grading of 184. I hope to get a grading of over 200 one day. I normally play in the Merseyside League and play Board 1 for Wallasey.
