Olympiad 2010 Round one Tactics

Natasha Fairley is black in this position and played the unfortunate d2?? but by simply moving the rook black should cruise to victory. The game ended in a draw

Michael Steadman has just played Rbc8 what tactical shot did he miss

so close for WFM Natasha Fairley beating a player rated over 400+ points above her, after some great play on her part. 67...Rc2+ wins with easily. She must have thought she had some trick with ...d2 and ...Rd3. She did draw so thats still a great result.

The Mens team look completely outclass by the much higher rated Cuba players. Bob Smith did put up a great fight against Cuba's Super GM
