Friday chess puzzles 9: the solutions

On Friday, I set you two great chess finishes to find from Sicilian encounters. The response was great, with particularly detailed and accurate analysis from Prashant, Chris, and Yemon.

For the first:

Gligoric finished Maric off with 1 ... Rb3!!

And in the second:

Nunn's killer against Murshed was 1 Be5!!

You can find both these games, and a host of other fabulous Sicilians in Nesis's book, "Tactics in the Sicilian".

You can play through Maric - Gligoric and Nunn - Murshed online
