  2. Game of the Week: Morozevich, Jakvenko
    $2.99
    Game of the Week: Morozevich, Jakvenko Tournament: Russian Team Championship 2013 ECO: D16: QGD; Slav accepted, Alapin Variation The Russian Team Championship has started up, with veterans of the FIDE Candidates tournament Svidler and Grischuk joining many of the top names in Russian chess. In this week’s game we take a look at the mercurial Alexander Morozevich battling another established grandmaster, Dmitry Jakovenko. The two revisited a sharp opening from a previous encounter, producing hard to evaluate positions and interesting hidden tactical possibilities. Let’s see how it went down. Learn More
  3. Game of the Week: Torre, Byrne
    $2.99
    Game of the Week: Torre, Byrne Tournament: 1973 Leningrad Iterzonal ECO: A00: Benko 1.g3 f5 Robert Byrne has passed away, one week short of his 85th birthday. One of the legends of U.S. chess history, Byrne was inducted into the US Chess Hall of Fame in 1994. Byrne spearheaded nine US teams in the Olympiad and won seven medals. He won the US Championship in 1972. He surely would have won a few more if not for Bobby Fischer dominating the Sixties. That title in 1972 was significant for me; it was the year I learned how to play chess, and the tournament book, “Title Chess,” was one of the first chess books I owned. Byrne followed with a top finish in the Leningrad Interzonal which made him a championship candidate. Alas, he went down at the hands of his friend and frequent tennis opponent, Boris Spassky. This week I will examine a game from Leningrad, in which Byrne defeats Eugenio Torre. Forty years later Torre is still playing at a good level, but back then he was just starting his long career. Robert Byrne was a good friend, and I will miss him dearly. Learn More
  4. Game of the Week: Rodshtein, Nepomniachtchi
    $2.99
    Game of the Week: Rodshtein, Nepomniachtchi Tournament: 14th European Individual Chess Championship ECO: E60: King's Indian: Unusual lines and Fianchetto Variation without Nc3 The European Individual Championship, as always, reeled in an enormous number of grandmasters hoping to qualify for the World Cup. When Alexander Moiseenko, the leader for nearly the entire event, was toppled in the last round by Ian Nepomniachtchi, an extraordinary ten way tie for first ensued, with all players on 8/11. Special kudos has to go to Alexander Beliavsky, who will now supplant our own Larry Christiansen as the oldest player in the World Cup. Most of the decisive games I played over seemed to be technical affairs. A notable exception was Nepomniachtchi’s encounter with Israeli grandmaster Maxim Rodshtein. A cutting edge opening variation led to an unusual unbalanced position that was quickly mishandled by one of the players. It’s short, but it’s sweet. Let’s take a look. Learn More
  5. Game of the Week: Pelletier, Hagen
    $2.99
    Game of the Week: Pelletier, Hagen Tournament: 14th European Individual Chess Championship ECO: E97: King's Indian:Classical Main Line In a tournament as big as the European Individual Championship it’s possible to overlook incredible games played on the lower boards. The battle between the experienced Swiss grandmaster Yannick Pelletier and the unknown Danish IM Andreas Hagen was in many ways a typical King’s Indian, but when you see the position after move fifty, you will surely agree that it is anything but typical. Watch and be prepared for an explosion in the latter stages of the game. Learn More
  6. Game of the Week: Kamsky, Grischuk,
    $2.99
    Game of the Week: Kamsky, Grischuk, Tournament: 14th European Individual Chess Championship ECO: A48 : 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 g6: Torre, London and Colle Systems Down the stretch of the FIDE Grand Prix in Thessaloniki, Greece, three players were writing compelling stories. In a dramatic last round, Fabiano Caruana took down the leader, Gata Kamsky, thus equaling his score of 7.5/11. Neither player could ultimately celebrate as Lenier Dominguez pushed through the open door with an endgame squeeze from Veselin Topalov. The Cuban grandmaster’s score of 8/11 netted first place in his greatest result to date. The three at the top showed a higher level than the others, though in any long tournament there will be many missed opportunities along the way. Kamsky, who forged his lead with an opening win over Dominguez and a 4.5/5 spurt just before the end, will certainly regret some moves from the finale, but he can also lament the missed opportunity against Alexander Grischuk in round four. Taking advantage of his opponent’s mistaken timing, Kamsky forged a surprising early attack but found the decisive blow unexpectedly elusive. Learn More
  7. Game of the Week: Areshchenko, Karpov
    $2.99
    Game of the Week: Areshchenko, Karpov Tournament: Sberbank Rapid Kiev ECO: B01: Scandinavian Defense It’s good to see Anatoly Karpov play chess, even if he is a long way from the great player he used to be. In the Sberbank Rapid tournament in Kiev, Karpov tried out some new opening strategy. In our featured game, he finds himself under heavy pressure from Ukrainian grandmaster Alexander Areshchenko. Areshchenko sacrificed a pawn early for long-term pressure, forcing Karpov to try to resuscitate his old defensive skills. Learn More

    Game of the Week: Ponomariov, Eljanov Tournament: 82nd ch-Ukraine 2013 Kiev ECO: C91: Closed Ruy-Lopez: 7…d6 8 c3 0-0 9 d4 It’s good to see Anatoly Karpov play chess, even if he is a long way from the great player he used to be. In the Sberbank Rapid tournament in Kiev, Karpov tried out some new opening strategy. In our featured game, he finds himself under heavy pressure from Ukrainian grandmaster Alexander Areshchenko.

  9. Game of the Week: Andreikin, Karjakin
    $2.99
    Game of the Week: Andreikin, Karjakin Tournament: Russian Superfinals 2013 ECO: E12: Queen's Indian: Unusual White 4th moves It’s a cool time for chess fans as three major events are taking place simultaneously. The Russian Superfinal boast most of the usual suspects, including Kramnik and multiple champion Svidler. In the first round two grandmasters representing Russia’s present and future squared off. Dmitry Andreikin and Sergey Karjakin explored new wrinkles in an opening that was highly favored by a former king of Russian chess, Garry Kasparov. Let’s see how it turned out. Learn More
  10. Game of the Week: Matlakov, Eljanov
    $2.99
    Game of the Week: Matlakov, Eljanov Tournament: Chigorin Memorial St Petersburg 2013 ECO: E35: Nimzo-Indian: Classical: 4…d5 5.cxd5 exd5 Pavel Eljanov was first among equals at the Chigorin Memorial, besting ten other players on tiebreak with 7/9. Eljanov is a solid player, which we will see in his approach from this week’s featured game. But when his opponent, the strong young grandmaster Maxim Matlakov, is lulled into a false sense of security, Eljanov strikes with a lightning attack. It just goes to show that to play attacking chess, one does not necessarily need to steer into sharp channels in the opening. Learn More
  11. Game of the Week: Solak, Grischuk
    $2.99
    Game of the Week: Solak, Grischuk Tournament: European Team Championship ECO: B30 : Sicilian: Nimzovich-Rossolimo attack (without ...d6) We occasionally see the Russian team get off to a slow start, but the second round upset at the European Team Championship suffered by the Russians at the hands of Turkey was still quite a shock. Even when you consider that the Turkish team is not particularly…Turkish. The decisive point was scored by a Serbian import, Dragan Solak, who has represented Turkey since 2011. The 33-year-old grandmaster defeated Alexander Grischuk in a rough game that showed that chess matches are not played on paper. Let’s see how it happened. Learn More
  12. Game of the Week: Shvedchikov, Kupreichik
    $2.99
    Game of the Week: Shvedchikov, Kupreichik Tournament: World Senior’s Championship ECO: A04 : Reti Opening I’ve noticed that players of today are remarkably versatile, seemingly at home in any kind of position. It’s noteworthy that Magnus Carlsen could become World Champion on the strength of his play in apparently quiet endgames. In my experience on the international circuit, I’ve encountered a number of old-timers who were particularly adept at one type of chess but not the other. The book on playing experienced Soviet grandmasters was to play tactically to offset their strategical training. This was not the case with Viktor Kupreichik, who was always a crazy attacking player with little interest or aptitude in the endgame. I see that Kupreichik hasn’t changed much on the senior circuit, judging from this week’s bizarre little game from the World Senior’s Championship, which was won by GM Anatoly Vaisser. In the face of his opponent’s quiet opening, Kupreichik sets about creating complications from the get-go, even at the expense of the soundness of his position. They say that fortune favors the brave (and for the most part, I believe that is true in chess); let’s see how it fared in this game. Learn More
  13. Game of the Week: Quingnan, Yangyi
    $2.99
    Game of the Week: Quingnan, Yangyi Tournament: Chinese Chess championship 2014 ECO: B47: Sicilian: Taimanov The Chinese Championship lacked some of China’s biggest stars like Wang Hao, Wang Yue, and Li Chao. But the favorites delivered, with second-seeded Yu Yangyi taking the title on tiebreaks over top seed Ding Liren. The winning score was a relatively modest 7/11. The 19-year-old went undefeated and notched a nice win over Liu Qingnan. Yu pounced on a mistake to initiate tactics, obtaining a winning advantage with some very aesthetic moves. Learn More
  14. Game of the Week: van Kampen, Rapport
    $2.99
    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. Learn More
  15. Game of the Week: Hou yifan, Girya
    $2.99
    Game of the Week: Hou yifan, Girya Tournament: Women’s Grand Prix ECO: B49: Sicilian: Taimanov As the dominant male in the chess world, Magnus Carlsen, racked up another tournament victory in the Gashimov Memorial, World Champion Hou Yifan confirmed that she is the dominant female with a convincing victory in the Women’s Grand Prix in Khanty Mansiysk. Her score of 8 ½ out of 11 put her a point and a half clear of the field. The result of the second place finisher, however, was a surprise. Despite being one of the tournament’s lowest rated competitors, the 22-year old Russian WGM Olga Girya notched 7 points and an apparent grandmaster norm. With a highly successful youth career behind her, Girya looks to have a promising future. But in this week’s feature game, Hou Yifan sends the message that she herself owns the present. Learn More
