Armenia Eagles Creep Past Delhi Dynamite
The Armenia Eagles bested the Delhi Dynamite 8.5-7.5. Who knows what might have been if not for a poorly timed pre-move by Aradhya Garg that dropped his queen on move fifteen. Ouch! Garg fought on valiantly but the queen spot proved a bit too much and NM Artak Manukyan cruised to victory. Manukyan had a great day, taking home 3.5 points for Armenia.
Meanwhile GM Salem Saleh resurrected flashbacks of Bobby Fischer when he went with the King’s Gambit against GM Manuel Petrosyan in round two. Saleh came to fight and the two GM’s treated us to a great game filled with exciting positions that typify the aggressiveness of the KGA. You’ll definitely want to browse the game below and be sure to get a look at the position after move 28.Bc2.
