The Gibraltar Chess Festival, recently concluded and won by super GM Hikaru Nakamura, who had to show all his Blitz prowess to defeat the other chess star Maxime Vachier-Lagrave in the playoffs, is a source of amazing attacking games, like it often happens with Open tournaments. This year a lot of strong and emergent youngsters, together with veteran players and super GMs participated in the event, making it one of the most interesting Opens of the year. Today, in the second installment dedicated to the Gibraltar Open, GM Larry Christiansen presents us with two excellent examples of attacking games. In the first game FM Kazim Gulamali (CapitalG on ICC) is on the receiving end of a spectacular attack performed by the young and promising Norwegian GM Aryan Tari (PaYbAcK on ICC). It is a typical example of attacking game: the strong Norwegian reacts boldly to white's openings, to unleash an early and vicious attack, leaving Gulamali no chance to escape. The second game is a very high-level attacking effort played by English strong GM Gawain Jones (Verdenotte on ICC). His opponent is the young Russian WGM Aleksandra Goryachkina (skelarog on ICC). Gawain conducts an impressive attack, diving into a highly tactical position, with a lot of possible variations. Another amazing episode of 'Attack with LarryC!'.
