GM Shakhriyar Mamedyarov: Creative play, lots of tactics

13/04/2022 –  GM Mamedyarov delayed castling to set-up an attack at black’s kingside.  When the g-file is opened, black cannot stop white from destroying the kingside. This game is a masterpiece.

 

The 2nd featured game is also exciting to watch. Interestingly, white’s strategy is to delay black’s bishop at c8 to develop. White’s pawn at c6 has caused a ripple effect at black’s inferior position.  But enjoy your coffee first…
