Aronian crushes Giri in nice game!
CRUSHING GAME BY ARONIAN!
The strong Tal Memorial continues to produce some great chess for the spectators! Round 6 saw the Armenian Lev Aronian take apart the Dutch superstar Giri, the latter almost at loss to explain where he went so wrong to find himself in a lost position so early…Aronian’s Tal-inspired Queen sacrifice was the icing on the cake. Enjoy!
(NOTE: I am using a nice little plugin called RPB-chessboard to demonstrate this game. To get the most out of what follows, click on any move and a pop-up chessboard will appear. You can drag this board over to the sidebar, resize it with the mouse, and play over the variations or even the whole game. Experiment with it! Kind of reminds me of some really nice stuff I have seen in e-books. You can find out more about RPB here.)
