Amy Hoare's win for ECF Juniors v Slovenia

Amy Hoare continues to do great things in the chess world - here she is demolishing a 2303. From the position (IM Rendle annotation):

18…Bf8? [18...Bxf5 removing the knight was Black's best chance but White should be winning after 19.Qxf5 f6 20.Qg6 and Black's position is full of holes. Ng3–f5 will be decisive.; 18...f6?! fails to 19.Nxg7! Kxg7 20.Nxf6 Bxf6 21.Bxf6+ Kg8 22.Bc3! and there is no reasonable defence to the threat of Re3–g3]

19.Nxh6+! [A great finish from Amy - this move shatters Black's defences all in one go. This is definitely the way to play against a much higher rated opponent - don't play for a draw, go for the win!]

[Black resigned as after 19.Nxh6+ gxh6 20.Nf6+ Nxf6 21.Qxf6 Kh7 22.Qh8+ Kg6 23.Qg8+ Black will be mated in short-order - one nice line is 23...Kh5 24.Rxe6! Rxe6 25.Rf5+ Kh4 26.g3+ Kh3 27.Rh5#]
