42nd Olympiad Excitement! #1

Howdy!

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 Smile 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 Wink

 

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!
