Here is a really exciting game that I played in the Icelandic League this weekend. The timecontrol was 90 minutes for the game + 30 second increments. My opponent was fellow FM and former teammate Sigurdur Dadi Sigfusson currently rated 2328.

The opening in this game out of the Semi-Slav is usually called the Anti-Moscow variation. Strap your setbelts on for this one and enjoy a few exercises after you've watched the video.

A typical Anti-Moscow tactic:

Anti-Moscow or Botvinnik?
Finish him!!
This would have been a worthy finish!
Zwischenzug is the word!
