I don't know if this is a viable thread or not, but if Tex can do it...
I was playing the black side of the 5+2 game. I was actually doing well (ie I didn't have a losing position, it was pretty much equal) but then walked into a pin. White held the pin for a couple moves, reaching this position with me, black to play, white having just played 26. Rd6, threatening the pinned rook and the loose bishop:
I nearly resigned. Took me too much time to see that I could still have an equal position with 26...Bb5, pinning the bishop that's pinning my rook. I realized that I had seen a similar idea before in the wacky Sicilian opening I play:
1. e4 c5 2. Na3 d6 3. c3 Nf6 4. g3 Nxe4 5. Qa4+ Bd7 6. Qxe4 Bc6 leading to:
The idea of ...Nxe4 Qa4+ and Qxe4 isn't so uncommon, but here I had played g2-g3, so ...Bc6 skewers my queen to my rook, threatening to make that trap pretty horrible. But 7. Bb5 saves the day, pinning the skewering bishop, and remaining protected by the knight on a3 that everyone thinks is otherwise useless.
I'm not sure if this shows up elsewhere, but I think it's something worth seeing if you haven't seen it before. I'd be interested in seeing this tactic in other games if anyone has any.
