International Chess Challenge: Hungry Queen

Last time we visisted our International Chess Challenge we saw the black queen starting to attack the white king.

Hutt International Boys' School (New Zealand) v The Links (England)

Hutt now played 20 Kd2, to avoid 20 ...Qxc2 checkmate.

The Links replied with 20 ...Qxc2+ and then we had 21 Ke1 (21 Ke3 would have allowed 21 ...Nd5 checkmate) Qxb3, bringing us to this position.


The black queen is clearly hungry.

Can Hutt fight back? Will The Links know how to keep the pressure on the white king?

Find out next time.
