Yesterday I played a supertalent from the USA, FIDE master Nikhil Kumar. He is only 13 years old and his top FIDE rating was 2479. He won the under 12 world championship in 2016.













He played d5, c5 with Bg4 against the London system, similar like my last opponent Theo Gungl. 

This time I decided to keep my light square bishop and instead of Be2, I played h3-g4, Nh4 to get the pair of bishops.

When he castled short, I decided to take some risk and start a pawn storm. Soon he sacificed or blunderd a pawn which I took.

Then I sacrificed a bishop to win time for my attack and he has no more defense:
