gm Dvirnyy,D – Jessen,A Europe Cup 12.10.2018
Obviously Black has castled too early and White has a strong attack. But still, the Black King seems so well defended… White to play and win!
gm Petrov,M – fm Corvi,M Europe Cup 12.10.2018
It makes no sense for White to capture the d6 pawn as White’s Queen side pawns are easy targets. Besides, there are bigger game to hunt! White to play and win!
cm Rathlev,J – gm Vocatura Europe Cup 12.10.2018
Clearly, the end is not going to be pretty for White, but White was hoping it would still be a ways off…Black to play and crush!
im Nikolovsky,N – Garcia,J Europe Cup 12.10.2018
Black has everything covered, but one should never let the enemy’s Knights get close to your King. White to play and win!
gm Greenfeld – Maksimovic,M Europe Cup 12.10.2018
White has active pieces and strong pressure on the Black position. How should White proceed?
wgm Belenkaya – im Tsolakidou Europe Cup 12.10.2018
Black must have been quite confident, leaving his King in the centre. Too confident. How should White proceed to teach Black a lesson?
