Almost ten years ago we were in Turin, Italy playing in the 37th Chess Olympiad. I used to represent Chile back then before I moved permanently to Spain and changed federations. Playing the Olympiad was a great experience, and although my result was a little dissapointing with only 5 points out of 12 games, I don’t have a bad memory from the tournament.
The following position occurred in my game against the strong GM Lubomir Ftacnik (Slovak). I missed a big opportunity to win it. Can you find the best move for black?
