Friday chess endgame study: Can you spot the magic move?

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Being material up might make you a little relaxed. You can get the whiff of victory. Still, the question remains - how to finish with a flourish! Check this position from Peter Leko-Veselin Topalov, Candidates, 2002. Can you spot the magic move that Leko played to get resignation from Black?

You can run the gameplayer to check your idea. Enjoy.

Have you checked our award-winning with chess puzzles and chess studies?
