CHESS

The Jerusalem Post - The Jerusalem Post Magazine - - GAMES - By Leonard Bar­den

Vass­ily Smyslov v Pia Cram­ling, Vet­er­ans v Women, London 1995 Smyslov was world cham­pion for just one year, but was one of the great­est strate­gists and played at a high level when over 80. He was a pawn down in this marathon game as White (to play) where Black plans to step up the pres­sure on White’s last pawn by Ba7. But Smyslov set a sub­tle trap, Black fell for it, and White won. Can you work out what hap­pened?
