Thank you very much GM Alex Yermolinsky.

Very nice comment!!!
Love having Uncle Yermo on the site
Entertaining game history and analysis.
Good review of current approaches to the Ruy Lopez and a fascinating game as well. Thanks!
by GM Alex Yermolinsky
The most decorated player in U.S. Chess League history added to his trophy case with another Game of the Week win. GM Julio Becerra transitions from a slightly worse middlegame to a full frontal assault on the White king. He nearly gets mated himself, but the grandmaster has it all worked out. White's dark squares were just too weak to stop the Miami Sharks from moving to 3-0 on the young season!

GM Alex Yermolinsky
Since his arrival in the United States in 1989, Alex Yermolinsky has won numerous major swiss events including the World Open and U.S. Open multiple times. He was the U.S. Champion in 1993 and 1996. Alex cherishes his recollections of the glory days of the now aging, but underrated U.S. Olympic Team of the 1990's. Alex is the author of "The Road to Chess Improvement", his magnum opus that threatens to become the most sought after out of print chess book on EBay.
Other authors need not worry, Alex has left chess writing behind him. These days he's more interested in online chess media. His "What Every Russian Schoolboy Knows" instructional weekly show on the Internet Chess Club has a large following. Alex is hoping to further his online presence here on Chess.com.
