The ACP Golden Classic in Bergamo, Italy may not have some of the luster and tradition of Dortmund and Biel, two tournaments that are being played concurrently, but it has invited some players that are good bang for the buck.
Baduur Jobava of Georgia has developed quite a reputation for enterprising play, with an often bizarre opening repertoire designed to take the game out of book early. In this week's game Jobava waves the red flag in front of the proverbial bull, Israeli GM Emil Sutovsky. Sutovsky is a straight-ahead, go-for-it-all type player; he met Jobava's provocation with predictable gusto. It's kill or be killed; tune in to find out who was the bug, and who was the windshield.
