In the recent Women's European Team Championship Anna Muzychuk won a quick game against Almira Skripchenko.

Skripchenko has just played 15 ... c6 and resigned a few moves later because of a beautiful tactical sequence played by Muzychuk. How did White win the game?

  • is 'resigned a few moves later' kind of a big hint? idk. but definitely a good share. Anna Muzychuk is definitely up there with Judit Polgar, Humpy Koneru, Hou Yifan and Ju Wenjun.

I think the winning tactical combination is the following:

1.Qh5! h6 2.Bxf7+ Rxf7 3.Qxf7+ Qxf7 4.Nxf7 Kxf7 5.b4 Nxe4 6.Rd7+

    and to think the game is kinda even if only the bishop weren't hanging!
