Game Of the Week: Sevian vs. Bok - Tata Steel 2016 Group B

Opening: B94: Sicilian: Najdorf

Player(s): Sevian, Bok

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!

At the Tata Steel tournament, the A Group deservedly gets most of our attention. This year many of the world's elite battled it out and provided a number of exciting games which were explained in game of the day videos. But as always, the B Group of the traditional Wijk aan Zee event provided great bang for the buck as enthusiastic, enterprising, and mostly young participants played a number of exciting games. I particularly enjoyed the contest between young American grandmaster Sam Sevian (who is quickly becoming a gotw favorite) and a recent prodigy from the Netherlands, (just turned) 21-year-old GM Benjamin Bok. For the first 25 moves or so, both sides built up for an attack. From then on, it was a steady stream of tactics with quite a few nice resources for both sides.
