White to Move
I hope that you all found the exciting move Qc7, with many threats including Qe7 mate and Qxf4
- Qc7 Bxc7 (…Bxh6 2. Qe5 mate) 2. g5 Mate
There have been many exciting games this week, in the Thanet League of course and in the FTX Crypto Cup, with the usual suspects, including Carlsen and Nepo. However our game of choice is from the FIDE Women’s Grand Prix taking place in Gibraltar.
The event has already seen some exciting games, and as I write this the joint leaders are Zhansaya Abdumalik and Mariya Muzychuk. My chosen game is the battle between Mariya’s sister Anna and Alina Kashlinskaya
Please enjoy another fighting game.

Gibraltar FIDE Women’s Grand Prix
We had five decisive games in the Thanet League this week and some very good performances. I have chosen another game where the advantage swung from player to player.
Please enjoy a very exciting fighting game, that shows that both players can play excellent chess. It is also another great example that chess is a sport and one move can change everything
