A Student Pilots Flight Squares, and an Aeroflot Snappy Landing
Opening: A50: Queen's Pawn Game
Player(s): Dubov, Fedoseev
Today Larry starts with a nice and instructive combo, played by a young student. The theme of the combo is "watch the emergency exits!". Black King tries to escape via an emergency exit square, but White finds a way to close the passage, and traps the enemy monarch into a mortal mating net. In the second part of the show, Larry analyzes for us a nice attacking game played at the Aeroflot Open by 18-year-old GM Daniil Dubov against 19-year-old GM Vladimir Fedoseev. the two young Masters fight for the center, and when Dubov manages to advance his central pawn up to the 6th rank and use it as an important pivot of the attack, the game becomes easy for the younger Russian GM.
