The author Joseph Heller told us what the term "Catch 22" meant - a situation with no good outcomes. Today GM Finegold shows us a game where his blunder is the best move. A Catch 22? You decide. But he did pair it with another game against GM Hellers. Coincidence? In any case, today you'll see how the Berlin Wall can actually repel two GMs quite quickly in the opening. Kasparov learned the hard way against Kramnik in 2000, and Finegold adds fuel to the Berlin fire!
