Some games from the Bundesliga
Crash & Burn Chess!
How are you today? This season’s Bundesliga (German Team Championship) came to an end this past weekend. Some really hard fought and interesting chess was demonstrated.
But not everybody returned home satisfied. Below are snippets from games that some of the players no doubt wish had never been played. Enjoy!
The price of delaying castling
Coenen,N (2284) – Naumann,A (gm,2533)
Queen Sacrifice and Queen Trap
Baldauf,M (gm, 2511) – Saltaev,M (gm, 2475)
Ignoring each other’s threats
Kasimdzhanov,R (gm, 2661) – Johansson,L (im, 2476)
This is a curious game. Pawns are attacked and ignored. More threats are created and they are ignored too! Finally Black captures White’s g-pawn with his Rook, and this too is ignored! And then Black resigns the very next move…curious how some chess game are!
