Brilliant cavalcade in a very clear construction.


3351 - A. Kisliak

The NW cage opens by retracting d7-d6, freeing wNc8. So that wh. caps are hxg and bBc8 at home, while bl. caps are Pa7xBb6 and Pf7xe6xd5xc4xb3xPa2. For balance, Bl. promoted his Ph7 on h1, after wPh6xg7.

Retract -1. f6-f7+ Kf7-g8 -2. e5-e6+ Bg8-h7 -3. f5-f6 Kf6-f7 -4. e4-e5+ Bd5-g8 -5. e3-e4 Bh1-d5 -6. c3-c4 h2-h1=B -7. c2-c3 h3-h2 -8. e2-e3 h4-h3 -9. f4-f5 h5-h4 -10. f3-f4 h7-h5 -11. h6xNg7 Nf5-g7 -12. f2-f3 Bg7-f8 -13. h5-h6 Rh8-e8 -14. h4-h5 Qg8-d8 -15. h3-h4 Rd8-d7 -16. h2-h3 d6-d7 -17. Nd6-c8 and Wh. retropat is avoided. The wRb8 must reach a1 through g3-g1 and the wBc1 must be reconducted before wPb2-b3 & bPb3xPa2 can be retracted.

Last moves on a2, h2, a7, h7 are bPb3xPa2, wPh2-h3, bPa7xBb6 (or is it wKb8-a7 ?), bPh7-h5.
