Attacking Theme in the Spanish
When a Lion roars…
I came across this nice attacking game a few days ago when playing over some blitz games from one of the recent ‘Tour’ events organized by Rex Sinquefield.
The two opponents are grandmasters Fabiano Caruana and Peter Svidler, and even though the game was played at a very fast time control, both players are long time experts on the Spanish Opening and therefore the fight contained a lot of subtle strategy and thematic tactics, something that one rarely sees in blitz games.
The finish, in particular, ends with a spectacular attack.
