Game Of the Week: GM Vitiugov vs. GM Ivanchuk

Opening: D26: QGA

Player(s): Vitiugov, Ivanchuk

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!

I want to go back to Gibraltar to check out a game from the playoff for first place. Nikita Vitiugov and Vassily Ivanchuk opened up their elimination match with a couple of non-descript draws, but the third game was a barn burner with sacrifices and unbalanced material.

The complications would have been difficult to calculate under any circumstances but nearly impossible in a blitz game. As it so often goes, the player with the position that was relatively easier to play got the point in the end.

  White: GM Vitiugov
