A very instructive game! It just shows how hard endgames can be when finding the "only move" that wins. Thanks for great analysis as usual
Well I did find 2 out of 3 moves that were "video pausers" but I didn't have the right follow-up for either one, so I dunno if my answers were really "right" or not.
BUT, the game was very entertaining and even though I'll probably never take up the KID watching Gligoric play it esp vs other heavyweight GMs is a real blast. Thanks GM Bojkov for this great series!
Thank you, too
very nice and instructive again :)

by GM Dejan Bojkov
In what might be one of the greatest positional sacrifice games ever, GM Bojkov walks us through the genius of how Gligoric handles the Saemisch Variation. In a game against Kotov, Gligoric throws pawns, exchanges and whole pieces at white, in an effort to obstruct the light squares and achieve complete mastery of the dark squares. The ideas would later heavily influence Kasparov's play in the KID.
