Brilliance or Blunder?

Kral-Kubak 2005 Was 30…Rh6 a simple blunder of a piece?

Black (rated 1650) played the intriguing 30…Rh6. White played 31.gxf5 upon which Black decided that he had blundered and played 31…Nxd6?? He should have asserted himself with 31…Rxh4! when 32.Qxe4 can be met with the ultra-brilliant 32…Rxe5!! (32…Rg4+? 33.Kh1 Rxe5 34.Qf3! wins for White) 33.Qxe5 Rg4+ 34.Kf2 (34.Kh1 Qc6+) Rxf4+ 35.Qxf4 Qxf4+ and Black has a winning advantage.



  1. I love seeing moves like 32…Rxe5!! What a blow!

  2. Might you have additional topics similar to this

    Thanks a lot.
