A Shot Gone Missing & Timman Meets Deep Fries
Opening: A40, C45: Queen's Pawn Game, Scotch Game
Player(s): Timman, Fries Nielsen, Vocaturo, Nepomniachtchi
Look out for those shots, folks! This could have been the second title of Larry's show today. GM Christiansen delights us with two amazing combinations this week. The first one *might* have happened between Italian Daniele Vocaturo and Russian Ian Nepomniachtchi at the recently concluded ACP Golden International in Bergamo, Italy. Vocaturo prepares the execution moment remarkably well, only to miss a move which would have made this game an immortal piece of art.
Daniele manages to win anyway, but the game, as Larry says "won't be remembered for too long". In the second part of the show, Larry analyzes a splendid attacking combination played by Jens Ove Fries Nielsen against the legendary Jan Timman, at the Politiken Cup this year. Enjoy!
