Punished for Not Knowing Opening Theory
Nice Attacking Finish!
Nobody likes to get caught playing an inferior opening where the opponent knows exactly how to refute it, but it happens to all of us from time to time. This can be witnessed in the recent game between IM Al Khatib Ahmad and GM Babu Lalith played in the Abu Dhabi Chess Festival.
Readers can follow along with the game either by clicking on any move (a side-board will appear, courtesy of the RPB plugin) or download the PGN at the end.
