Levon Aronian Wins Grenke Chess Classic 2017 with a round to go!!
In this game Levon Aronian beat Hoy Yifan with really energetic and impressive play. At move no 17 Levon Aronian played Bf3, sacrificing a pawn to obtain piece activity on the other hand it also hampers black’s pieces development a lot. At move no 25 Hou yifan lost her passion and decided to retun material where she was having a cool piece sacrifice to get comfortable endgame but she missed. Aronian’s play was so pressing that on move no 30 Hou Yifan made a mistake with 30...Rd7 and lost a pawn after which still Black had some chances to hang on but at move no 39 she miscalculated and lost another pawn this mistake was quite similar to her mistake against her match with MVL.
Again Many Congratulations to Levon Aronian for winning Grenke Chess Classic 2017
