Knights trap queen
Timman, Jan H (2480) - Polugaevsky, Lev (2645) - AVRO 1973 Round 5
Attacking the queen! Also notice, the knight is within striking distance to deliver a check! From now switch on the imaginary lights under the squares these two White knights control.
This knight at d5 can safely be taken by the Black knight; the pawn is pinned and hence can not move; the bishop can take it but will lose.
The queen can safely go to c5 or b8 squares but the resultant position will not be
pleasant for Black.
