Sadly, I was too busy with other projects to play in the BC Open this weekend and re-activate my dormant FIDE rating. But you can still check out some of the games from rounds 1 and 2. Better still, drop by and see the action live! There are many strong BC players battling it out.
The game FM Morozov- NM McLaren had a nice finish with an exchange sacrifice on b7. Black had no way of stopping the queen side pawns from promoting. The plan after Bb5 is to take on b8, park the bishop on c6 and march the a-pawn down. Easy!
And below is an easy mate to start off your day. White mates in one. No hints required.
