Rd8, Nxd8, then promoting to Q!
I like this lesson, good variation and a winning game
Good game!! What a novelty 5.h4!? I've never actually seen this in a high-level game before! Good preparations
Awesome video. Very complicated game. Great fighting chess on both sides. Preparation is so important at this level of chess. Thanks for the video!
Gareev. At 7:00 you can't recapture Rd8+ with the knight because of e8=Q. However, capturing with the Rook leads to the same position you demonstrate so no harm done.
It's a fun move when you calculate everything correctly. =) Great video.
pampaa the answer is Ba4 Kxa4 then b3 c4 d5 e5 rofl draw LOOOL kid's puzzle
Great video, exciting game!
"It's not about material it's about reducing the possibilities." That is the most accurate description for attacking while defending. I was in an endgame a couple of years ago. I had a rook and he had a knight. I tried to defend my rook, but I then realized...if I trade my rook for his knight...he has no pieces left to stop my passed pawn. I was a 1095 USCF rated player against a 1900 rated USCF. I think he underestimated me but from that point forward I saw Chess in a whole new way.
ha very puzzle-like
Cool. For the uninitiated, Timur is not dumb. Pirc IS actually pronounced "Peerts."
great video .try to solve this.
Job well done GM Timur Gareev.

How often do you see a rook pawn advancing two squares on move five? Today GM Timur Gareev explains the latest opening trend in the Grunfeld. White starts off positionally, then sets off a flank attack out of nowhere. In his U.S. Championship game versus the young talent GM Ray Robson, our author shows off the tactical melee that ensued.
