Game Of the Week: Shimanov vs. Zapata - World Open

Opening: A48: King's Indian: Torre attack

Player(s): Shimanov, Zapata

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!

By playing quiet "systems" openings, grandmasters avoid a theoretical battle, but may also hope to win strategically without tactical skirmishes. But when you are playing an experienced grandmaster, such smooth victories are hard to come by, and you may need to sweat out tactics anyway. That's what happened in this week's game from the World Open, contested by Alex Shimanov and Alonso Zapata. By the end crazy possibilities were turning up, and the players may not have had enough time to work out the complications.
