3 Best Games of The Week – 29

For this week’s edition we have chosen three attacking games that have a nice tactical finish. The first one was played by the American Grandmaster Gata Kamsy in Cappelle la Grande. He used his favorite weapon when playing with white, the London System.

After a small imprecision in the opening, black’s pieces were left passive, while white started gaining space and creating on the queenside and center.


Game 1:

The following game was played between two very strong female players, the Ukrainian Natalia Zhukova, European Champion, and the Russian Natalia Pogonina, finalist of the World Championship. In a Queen’s Gambit Declined black didn’t find an active way to open the center for her bishop pair, which allowed white to build her attack against the king.


Game 2:

The last game is a nice win of the Israeli Grandmaster Maxim Rodhstein with the white pieces in the Blumenfeld Gambit over Polish Grandmaster Marcin Tazbir. White brought a novelty on move 17 that left black unable to develop his pieces. With the black king left in the center, white finished his development and delivered the final blow.


Game 3:
