GM Kryakvin vs. GM Khismatullin

Opening: A45: Trompowsky attack

Player(s): Kryakvin, Khismatullin

Three-time U.S. Champion GM Joel Benjamin brings you a new show every Friday at 15:00 Server Time. Joel is regarded by many as one of the best commentators and analysts' we have in the game today -- so if you want to get ahead of the game, get ready to tune-in!

The Moscow Open has returned with a little less luster than it had before. Still, there are quite a few strong players, even if many of them are lesser known Russians. Some very interesting games can fly under the radar; I think I found one in the contest between grandmasters Dmitry Kryakvin and Denis Khismatullin.

White sacrificed a piece just out of the opening, plunging the game into complications. The subsequent play saw a mixture of inspired resources and missed opportunities before settling into an endgame with one player squeezing and the other hanging on for dear life.
