Here are a couple tactical exercises that appeared from Niles North players:



tactic 1: Meerovich-Kirsch Should white be worried about Qb6+ winning the pawn on b2?




















tactic 2: Rothschild-Liang What would you play as white in this position?

hello
I also like chess but I am not that good at it. I have 1291 point on a site right now with 8 win 4 loss 1 tie. I think on the 1st figure the queen attack is not dangerous because the bishop can defend the king.
