Great Chess in Russian Championship
The 2018 ‘Super-Finals‘ of both the men and women is taking place in Satka between August 24 and September 6. Always one of the toughest tournaments of the year. And some great chess is being played! Below I present the game between Jakovenko and Nepomniachtchi. Nepo (as he is affectionately called) is a difficult man to beat, but on this particular day Jakovenko had his number. It turned out to be a real crush. Enjoy!
