Evanston Chess Club TD and Secretary of the Illinois Chess Association Maret Thorpe sends us the finish to one of her online two-minute games. Although White is formally up material (rook + knight + extra pawn > two bishops), the incredible activity of Black's pieces plus the marooned fellow on h8 should mean that White is not long for this world. And indeed, something simple like 1...Ba3+ is crushing.
But Black found something even stronger.....
