17-year-old Jorden van Foreest Crushed former world championship challenger Peter Leko
The “quiet” Italian has become a very popular opening choice for many 1.e4 players, if for no other reason than it avoids the Berlin variation of the Spanish and it can lead to complex play with all of the pieces still on the board. Young Jorden Van Foreest played it against Hungarian legend Peter Leko with an early Bg5. This is not supposed to be very dangerous but at least Black has pushed h6 and g5 in front of his own king. Forcing the normally unbeatable Leko to have some weaknesses to defend is already a big concession!
