It was very difficult to choose the Game of the Week, not because no interesting games were played but because there were too many exciting battles. The Thanet Early Summer Swiss again turned up a good selection of good fighting games, however my choice this week may well be the most exciting game played ( so far ) in 2021

All club players can play a decent game, given a generous time limit and a following wind: Super GMs on the other hand can play magical games even at the quickest speed.

Here is a game, played online, between Hikaru Nakamura and Shakhirya Mamedyarov .

Please enjoy the game – I am not qualified to add any comments, if you want to see more please watch the excellent video on YouTube

 White:  Hikaru Nakamura       Black:  Shakhirya Mamedyarov
