Here I present a number of interesting games that have been played in the past few days from both the Iranian Championship in Hamedan, as well as the World Senior Championship in Acqui Terme, Italy. Enjoy!
gm Jansa, V – Henrichsen, E World Senior (+65)
Daneshvar,B- gm Ghaem Iran_ch 2.11.2017 (0 – 1)
gm Ghaem – Gholami,M Iran_ch 3.11.2017 (1 – 0)
gm Vaisser – Anguera,J World Sr 7.11.2017
A beautiful positional effort by the grandmaster! First a pawn sacrifice in the opening, and then a fine combination on e2 leading to complete paralysis of White’s game.
Another instructive game by Ghaem. This game stresses the importance of knowing and preparing your openings in modern tournaments.
Grandmaster Vaisser is on a role in recent events and here he plays like a young grandmaster! Close the centre; open the Kingside; deliver mate!
