Dear reader,
Not sure what you mean by latest tactics.
We do intend to put up a new exercise.

A reader on our Face Book spot made an interesting suggestion.
1…Rd4!? with the threat of 2…Rd8.
It does not work as White has time to bring his king closer to his knight and rook.
There follows 2.Kf1 f5 2. Bb1 Rxd2 3.Rxd2 Rc1+ 4.Ke2 Rxb1 and Black enjoys only slender advantage.
Nevertheless, this was a fascinating try.

Dear Goldfinch,
After 1...Rc4 White withdraws the bishop with 2.Bf3.

Dear Kai,
1...f5 is what Black played.
It gives the advantage, but not an immediate win.
