Sample text

The far advanced pawn helps create back-rank mate possibilities. 3. Kh1 (3. Rxf2 Rc1+) 3. Rc1! 0-1. Motifs: far-advanced pawn with a Rook behind it, potentially open file for Black’s c8-Rook, promotion, back-rank mate. Themes: opening the file/deflection (of c3-pawn), decoy. (Nedekovic - Siladi, 1957) 51. Underpromotion 1. Rf1+ (decoy) 2. Rxf1 Qh2+ (another decoy) 3. Kxh2 gxf1(N)+, and Black wins. 52. Cornering the King Material is even, but Black can create dangerous threats—and follow up to final victory.

Instead, 1. Qf2! wins. Thus, White should reject 1. Rxd5 and consider other candidate moves, such as 1. Qd3 or 1. Rxe8 Rxe8, and now, for example, 2. Ng7. (Teschner - Portish, 1969) 43. Pawn Mate If White could play f2-f3, it would be mate. Hmm. 1. Rxe4+ (deflection, annihilation of a defender) 1. Rxe4 2. f3#. (Lombardy - Medina, 1973) 44. Seize the File! 1. Qd8! 2. Qxe6+ (Or 2. Qd2 Qxd2 3. Bxd2 Rd8 4. Be3 Rd1+ 5. ) 2. Rf7!. ) 3. Qe1 Re7 0-1. What makes 1. Qd8! difficult to find is that Black offers a pawn to be taken with check!

Kxb8 2. Qxe5+! (deflection/opening a file) 2. fxe5 3. Rf8+, with the now familiar backrow mate. (Alekhine - Reshevsky, 1937) 39. Double Pin & Mate! Because of Black’s pawn on b3, back-rank mate suggests itself ... 1. Rd8! 0-1. (Mikenas - Aronin 1957) 40. Medal of Honor for Interference Black should consider the “normal” 1. Re1+ 2. Bf1, and now, from this support position, look for ways to deflect the White Queen. But if this idea doesn’t pan out, look for others on move one — try interference.
