Our first puzzle today is from Gata Kamsky vs. Judit Polgar from their second round game at Buenos Aires in 1994:
Judit began an attacking combination 5 moves previously, but Gata's threat to get a second queen with mate (d7-d8=Q) looks deadly. Can you see how Judit continued her combination and finished off the game quickly?
Our second puzzle is from Borisenko vs. Simagin at Moscow in 1955, and also features a White king on h3:
White will win if he can bring his king over the c file to assist his pawn, so, in response to 1 ... Qf1+, he played 2 Kg4. Can you see why this was a losing mistake?
