Some chess games proceed smoothly to a certain conclusion. The attacker may win, or the defender, or perhaps a perpetual check may occur. But you can predict more or less when the game ends. Then there are games where the board is transformed and an entirely different struggle commences. Such was the case in a game from the Spice Cup in St. Louis between Georg Meier and Ding Liren. Like a football game sent suddenly into overtime, the contest had to be won all over again. Let’s follow the ups and downs of this intense encounter, with the always amazing analysis of our GM Joel!
