Phiona Mutesi Chess Game (Queen of Katwe)

Phiona Mutesi Chess Game (Queen of Katwe)

On September 30th, 2016 the Disney movie "Queen of Katwe" will be released. It's based on a true story, one depicting the life of Phiona Mutesi, who today is a Chess Champion in Uganda. In this video I share a recent game she played at the 2016 Women's Olympiad in Baku, Azerbaijan where she represented her country of Uganda. Mutesi, rated 1622, played as white against Honduras's Maria Pradi Ramos Donaire, unrated. The Queen of Katwe, Phiona Mutesi, played a total of 3 games at the Olympiad, and of them I share the one that left me with the strongest impression because of the technique used during the endgame phase. My hope by highlighting one of her games, is to help spread her story, one that can both break one's heart, and inspire.
