Last couple of days I've been looking for mates in three on my big database. This position comes from game Asger Thor Arnaison - Bjarni Hjartarson. The game was played 1988 in Reykjavik open. Hjartarson just took pawn on e4 with his queen and missed mate in two for white.


The oversight is following your own intentions and missing the holes in them.

It is interesting how these practice sessions affect my blitz play as I lashed out these really dubious attacks on my opponents king. Hopefully I get my balance back together later.
