McKay, Roderick M vs. Murdochy, Shivan - Scottish Championship International Open 2024 1/2-1/2

In the game between Roderick M. McKay and Shivan Murdochy at the Scottish Championship International Open 2024 on July 10, 2024, White played the move Qc6. This move threatens to capture material, presenting a direct challenge to Black's position. It proposes an equal trade of queens, aiming to simplify the position while maintaining a competitive edge. By advancing the queen to c6, White misses an opportunity to launch a direct attack on Black's pieces but gains a tempo advantage, forcing Black to respond strategically. The move also sets up potential tactics that could lead to a fork, putting pressure on multiple pieces simultaneously. While Qc6 misses a chance to develop another piece, it actively engages the queen for more dynamic play in the upcoming exchanges.
