New Highlights

Tons of fresh mouth-watering goodies await us, including a tremendous trio of games (namely G13.124-G13.126) involving the Ruy Lopez and a super set of stars such as Jaan Ehlvest, Gennadi Kuzmin, Luke McShane, Vassily Malinin, Jonathan Rowson, Ivan Sokolov,... In the following three diagrams the last three mentioned players really rock the opposition, with the stunning moves:


20 Bxc7!

and 34...Nxh3!.

Moving on now to the Petroff Defence, we have the super-GM clashes Leko-Adams (G7.30) and Grischuk-Adams (G7.31) in which White triumphs twice, aided in the latter battle by the key tactical shot 26 h5! that definitely deserves its diagram here:

Another dynamic duo of games, this time featuring the ever-exciting King's Gambit, is Hoeksema-S.Ernst (G4.56) and S.Ernst-Brenninkmeijer (G4.57). And that's not all. 'The Ponziani' pounces for a quick 1-0 kill in Upton-Akca (G8.9), but Black strikes back to scorch 'The Scotch' in Minyeyevtsev-Lacrosse (G9.32).

Still not had enough yet?! Alright then. Lammens-Safin (G11.23) is a Four Knights Game that will keep you satisfied all (k)night long!

Now you know what to expect. So, full speed ahead, and enjoy the feast!

Very Best Wishes,
Yours Sincerely,
Paul Motwani.
