    Good luck Anton. What an amazing experience that would be to play the masters.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Rd1`game was very tough for Anton having to defend for many moves. His opponent was on fire sacrificing 2 exchanges and creating a good example to add to the ''Blockade'' chapter of Nimzovich's ''My System''.

    Thanks Michael I appreciate when illustrative games are highlighted and downloaded .
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    Very very rare to see 2 fine Rook sacs by the same player in the same game.

    Round 2 - Anton was in control throughout and should have won. I was thinking 32.Rxf5 too and then he played it. But it was a mistake and only drew. 32.Ra8+ was +6.98 and clearly winning.

    It is no disgrace to lose to Erwin l'Ami.Not only a top GM but also a good writer in New in Chess e.g.

    3 draws to start with for Carlsen in the Masters
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.
