Game of the Week: van Kampen, Rapport

Tournament: Reykjavik Open 2014

ECO: B09: Pirc

In the Reykjavik Open, two of the more enterprising young grandmasters, 19-year-old Robin van Kampen of the Netherlands, and Hungarian Richard Rapport, who was just turning 18, contested a strange tactical skirmish. A cutting edge opening led to a position that was hard enough for me to get a handle on with a chess engine; over the board the players must surely have struggled. Eventually the smoke cleared and a victor was determined, but should the game have gone the other way? Let’s try to figure that out.
