My apologies for having no new content for a few days, a case of just feeling under the weather, fortunately just a bad case of ‘man flu’

Our game this week is from the recent Paris Rapid & Blitz event where most of the world’s elite players battled for first prize. The overall winner was Wesley So but I couldn’t resist choosing a French Defence, played in Paris, and, against the number 1 French player.

We have, with the White pieces Maxime Vachier-largrave and playing Black, the challenger to Magnus Carlsen’s crown Ian Nepomniachtchi

Please just enjoy the game with my ( very light ) notes.

 White:  Vachier-Lagrave, Maxime       Black:  Nepomniachtchi, Ian
