My Best Game Ever Played

My Chess.com Blog abounds with instructive positions and memorable games by the great masters. Still, at times I like to entertain my audiences with real life games of mine, some of which have fascinated not only my opponents but also many of my online students. Today, I am proud to introduce you to my best game ever played in my long competitive chess career as a FIDE master and avid tournament player.

In today’s video, I have covered my game I played long ago, back in 2005, when I joined the U14 National Team Chess Championship in Bulgaria. That time, I was paired to play against a strong opponent, one of the best Bulgarian chess players nowadays, who was then rated at 2230, yet already seen as a promising chess prodigy on the many chess events held all around the country and abroad. Still, I had expected this game for a long time and had well prepared for it beforehand. We went on to play the Scheveningen Variation of the Sicilian Defense and I had the white pieces. My secret weapon was the Keres Attack which I embraced confidently in this decisive game for my team at the time. Still, that was where things were just starting to happen on the board and with great concentration and enthusiasm, I managed to maintain an ongoing attack on my opponent’s stranded kind and despite the sacrificed material, my piece coordination completely immobilized my opponent’s forces causing his position to gradually collapse after a long battle of minds:

    Instead of "Best game ever played"; the correct title would be "Best game till date..."

    With your heading it means; you will never play a better game than the one presented!  We still await some great games from you.  Good luck!

    Really fantastic game.

    Steps to chess domination:

    1. Recreate Tal attack.

    2. Hang on for dear life.
