21 Rfb1

The Hawk's 21st move of our ongoing correspondence game is: 21 Rfb1

Black would like to take the Rook with the Knight but unfortunately that would allow 22 Qxc8 checkmate as the Knight is pinned.

The Queen is under attack and great care must be taken. She needs to keep defending the d6 square otherwise White's Knight will move there with a crushing fork.

It seems that both of Black's Queenside pawns are in big trouble and the King has yet to find safety.

The Rest of the World team needs to find some very strong moves to hold this position together!

Vote now for the next Black move!

Closing date: 6.00 p.m., Thursday 17th April
