Greed Kills Part II


(Eyesofblue vs. NN)
(Black to Move)

It's black's turn to move here. He's already down a couple pawns, so you can't blame him for just trying to get something started, but he is about to make an awful mistake: namely, 1... Rxh3?.

Do you see why this is such a major blunder? It is because that same greedy rook is now lost. 2. Rxb7+ Ka8 (forced). 3. Rh7+! with the inevitable 4. Rxh3 to follow.

That's funny but I fell to this exact thing yesterday evening. Lost a rook there as well, grrr.

I have a program to get diagrams (chesspad) but I don't think it allows for me to change colors like yours does. I would appreciate you sending it to me if you get a chance (no hurry), dreadpiratejosh @ yahoo.com
