GM R. Praggnanandhaa: Super Alapin 2. c3

02/11/2021 –   There are 69 chess grandmasters in India. Chess is the 2nd most popular sport next to Cricket.  Having a large population and millions play chess in a country, where inborn chess genius is not scarce. Teen genius GM R. Praggnanandhaa is one of the rising chess superstars in India.

I was amazed by his choice of Alapin line 6. g3 against black’s  2…Nf6 variation.  The game is so instructive from opening to endgame. The other featured game was played by GM Shakhriyar Mamedyarov as if watching a “James Bond” movie, full of action and entertaining. But first…a good coffee…

To all beginners and experts, this game is a must study. See how a teen GM showed how to control diagonals and files. This game I awarded "5 stars".

Two GMs play like "Rambo' Style", GM Vachier-Lagrave, Maxime and GM Shakhriyar Mamedyarov. These 2 GMs place the king in the center or just side steps. Very entertaining and action packed game ...enjoy...
