|White to move and save himself !|
Now for a treat from the "Never Ever Give Up!" department.
This game was called "The Swindle of the Century!"
Two American Grandmasters played each other in the Dubrovnik Tournament in 1950. It was Larry Evans with White and Sammy Reshevsky with Black.
As you can see, Black is one move away from delivering checkmate. White can stop checkmate with Rxg7+, but after Qxg7 White is down a rook and knight for a pawn and really is in no condition to continue the game.
But GM Evans found the Swindle of the Century to take the victory away from a stunned GM Reshevsky.
Can you find it?
Answer will be placed in the comment section .....by someone......eventually! Enjoy.
