First surprise? Sam's opponent Larry Christiansen played a relatively unambitious strategy -- planning to trade everything off on the a-file for equality. Second surprise? Larry C then abandoned that plan -- reverting to his "usual ways" of complications. Unfortunately for him, Sam likes the Bishop pair! Enjoy this highly interesting and extremely instructive review by IM Sam Shankland this weekend, and don't play the "Booger Indian"...
