This game was played in the third round of the recent Pfalz Open in Germany. I am presenting this game to you because this game contains a very important point. That is "Sense of Danger."

I mean that one of the strong points of a strong player is that he becomes incredibly alert in a bad position. Lets take a look  at this game:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Moral of the story: It's very important for a chess player to know when to raise his alertness level to the highest degree. In that case black could have found 14...Rh7! in this game.
