My Once Every Blue Moon

Post by AdminX » Wed Sep 23, 2015 8:51 pm

Fen:r4b1r/1pqn1kp1/2p1pp2/3n2P1/p2PN3/5N2/PPPBQP2/2KRR3 w - - 0 21

The position is from a 5-minute game I played this morning on the My FIDE Arena Site when after 16 seconds of thought I found and played the nice looking 21. Nxf6! and went on to win. Most engines prefer 21. gxf6, I did find that Chiron 2 seems to choose the move played.

gxf6 also wins easily, but it is not nearly so beautiful as your move.
