To Take, or Not to Take?

I came across a game between British GMs John Nunn and Mark Hebden from the recently concluded World Seniors Championship. There was a very neat finish to the game, and so I thought I’ll share it.

In a lost endgame position, Hebden tried his last chance with …Rg1:

How should White react?

A) Kxg1 – Capture Black’s Rook, or

B) Kf3 – Decline the sacrifice?

Happy Solving! Enjoy!

    Hi Akshat! I have been following your blogs for quite a while now and I really love them! Keep them coming !

    As for the solution, I don’t think I should take any credit as I had seen the game already, but I’ll take it.

    55…(deleted to avoid being a spoiler)…to win.

    Wishing you all the luck in future,
