Nice game by Marc Esserman in Cannes
Marc Esserman on a roll!
A nice little tournament organized by the Cannes Chess Club is taking place right now. Multiple sections, with the top section having some 11-grandmasters amongst some 93 players. Amongst the participants is the American Marc Esserman, without a doubt the strongest IM in the world.
In round one Marc played a brilliant game against one of the many young talents from India and the game featured the Morra Gambit. Readers might recall that Marc is the world’s leading exponent on this razor-sharp opening, having written the definitive theoretical text some years back.
