Game Of the Week: Wojtaszek vs. Ter Sahakyan - European Championship 2016

Opening: D11: QGD Slav: 4.e3

Player(s): Wojtaszek, Ter-Sahakyan

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!

For game of the week, I'm as much a sucker for crazy tactical games as everyone else. But every now and then I'm in the mood for a slow groove. This week I would like to feature a technical squeeze executed by Polish GM Radoslaw Wojtaszek over 22-year-old Armenian grandmaster Samvel Ter Sahakyan. I was drawn to this game because it illustrates how tactics are interwoven into strategical play, and that endgames are not just about pawns but about coordination of the pieces as well.
