International Chess Challenge: Queen Invasion

New moves have been played in our Interntional Chess Challenge between Hutt International Boys' School (New Zealand) and The Links (England).

Last time we visited the game this position had just been reached, with the black queen hovering close to the white king.

Hutt, playing as White, are in trouble here. The black is queen is about to capture the c-pawn and deliver checkmate.

Hutt played 19 b3, which blocked the queen's path to c2.

The Links now voted for 19 ...Qxa2, giving us this position to ponder.

Can Hutt hold the defence together?

Stay tuned for more moves!
