Making a video about a game that lasted only eight moves, now that's a challenge. But I thought, why not? At least Brodsky and Nijboer had something to explain, hadn't they, after their short draw in round 6 of the Univé Open in Hoogeveen.







It was a disappointing little act on the top board, but luckily there was enough spectacle to witness on the other boards. We'd like to draw your attention to e.g. Gruenfeld-Ootes, in which the Israeli veteran mated his opponent nicely. Down below there's a selection of games from the open group played so far.

After six rounds GMs Nijboer, Brodsky, Haslinger and Romanishin share the lead with five points. In round seven it's Nijboer-Romanishin and Haslinger-Brodsky, which just started - live here.
