Chess Crackers (March-April 2010)

A good diversity of positions here… endgame tactics, queen sacrifices, king hunts! A usual game involving Emory Tate but this one features a classic game with Maurice Ashley! Also John Porter has the “game of a lifetime”. Amon Simutowe has a key victory enroute to his 2nd place finished in the 2000 World Junior. Enjoy!
