42nd Olympiad Excitement! #1
The past few weeks I have been pouring over games from the 2016 Olympiad, held in Baku. There are THOUSANDS of games! That's the bad news. The good news: there is so much to learn Even at this point, having only looked at two dozen or so, I have seen some really cool combinations and checkmates.
I will be showing some of the highlights in this series, and honestly, I cannot say how long this will take. So I will go until I'm empty. Because the top boards usually get all the attention, we'll begin with the Women's Olympiad first.
Let's sound off with a mate threat leading to a decisive win from my favie
The second game is from another Bulgarian teammate taking the win by decisive fork.
I hope you enjoyed the first two games! Keep an eye out for more highlights to come.
Thank you for reading and see you OTB!
