Game Of the Week: IM Espinosa Aranda vs. GM Salgado Lopez

Opening: B43 : Sicilian: Kan Variation: 5 Nc3

Player(s): Espinoza Aranda, Salgado Lopez

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!

22-year-old Ivan Salgado Lopez won the Spanish Championship with a 7.5 - 1.5 score. It was a Swiss system event, and some of his opponents were not very strong.

Still, he showed a technical mastery of his stronger opponents, too. He beat Miguel Illescas in a rook and bishop ending with four pawns versus three, all on the same side. I would have thought it to be a draw, until I saw how Salgado won it. In this week's featured game, he wins a smooth game without any fireworks against an international master of about the same age, Angel Espinosa Aranda. I quite like this game because it shows how the player with the better understanding of the strategy of the Open Sicilian will emerge on top. Let's watch and learn.
