Game Of the Week: GM Matlakov vs. GM Eljanov

Opening: E35: Nimzo-Indian: Classical: 4…d5 5.cxd5 exd5

Player(s): Matlakov, Eljanov

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!

Pavel Eljanov was first among equals at the Chigorin Memorial, besting ten other players on tiebreak with 7/9. Eljanov is a solid player, which we will see in his approach from this week's featured game.

But when his opponent, the strong young grandmaster Maxim Matlakov, is lulled into a false sense of security, Eljanov strikes with a lightning attack. It just goes to show that to play attacking chess, one does not necessarily need to steer into sharp channels in the opening.
