chess gamesOur first game was played in the first round of the strong Aeroflot tournament, between Mamedyarov and Savchenko. Mamedyarov is well known for his tactical instinct, capable of turning any position into absolute chaos.

In this seemingly quiet queen's gambit declined, he shows no mercy for his opponent.

Game #1

Game #2

Next game is a Sicilian Kan that later transposed into Taimanov. Pentala Harikrishna, India's top player after Anand completely destroys his opponent Cyborowski,L with a beautiful piece sacrifice on d5. A game worth seeing

Game #3

Third game shows the moldavian Grandmaster Svetushkin winning against the Alexander Motylev. This is a very interesting game in the Slav defense. White chose a quiet, positional line against the Slav and went on to win fairly soon without black making any obvious mistakes. The line employed by Svetushkin was 4.Qc2, this move was very popular years ago and is worth knowing it if you play the Slav (or against it).
