Was Magnus Carlsen lucky to save a draw in this game? Or is he just that good?
GM Ben Finegold takes a look at an exciting Giri-Carlsen game where the world champion presses too much for a win with the black pieces.
Although Carlsen escapes with the draw, the game is instructive and has more fighting spirit than most wins. |
GM Bojkov keeps adding pieces to the board, but the opposite colored bishop keeps marauding. Here we see positions with multiple heavy pieces, which gives the attacking side an even greater chance to crash through. He also gives five simple rules for positions like this. Learn them and you'll be able to conduct some scary attacks! |
In what might be one of the greatest positional sacrifice games ever, GM Bojkov walks us through the genius of how Gligoric handles the Saemisch Variation. In a game against Kotov, Gligoric throws pawns, exchanges and whole pieces at white, in an effort to obstruct the light squares and achieve complete mastery of the dark squares. The ideas would later heavily influence Kasparov's play in the KID. |
