WHITE to play and mate in two moves ; solution next week. Solution to No. 207 (Ellennan) : Q-B 5, threat Q-B 7. I . . . K x P, 2 B-R 4. I . . . Kt-Q 5; 2 Kt xP. a . . . Kt-Q 6;z Qx Kt. a . . . R x Kt ; 2 Q-B a. Note tries a B-Kt a? (threat 2 P-K 4), R-K 8 ! and a B-B a? (threat 2 P-K 3), Kt-Q 5 l This week's game, from the match US v. Czecho- slovakia at the Tel Aviv Olympics gives a curiously misleading effect for half the game in that White appears to be bumbling along to a feeble defeat ; he plays an inoffensive line in the opening, plays P-K 3 and a few moves later P-K 4, and then apparently falls into a trap and loses a piece. Then the great transformation scene takes place-the lost piece is
seen to be a far-sighted sacrifice, a ferocious attack follows, Black loses back the piece (and more) and is mated. An entertaining game typical of Bisguier's style and personality.
White, BISGUIER(US). Black, KAVALEK (Czechoslovakia). Opening, KING'S Imam. (Tel Aviv, 1964).
