#Chess Position Worth Sharing 110

September 18, 2019

A remarkable position occurred after white played 47. Qxg3 in the game Samuel Sevian vs. Sergey Karjakin, FIDE World Cup 2019. Karjakin has only three legal responses as black and each would directly result in a different outcome (a win, a loss or a draw.)

Black to move and win, lose or draw! (Samuel Sevian – Sergey Karjakin, World Cup, Khanty-Mansiysk RUS, 2019.09.10.)

Anna Ushenina is the New Women’s World Chess Champion

December 3, 2012

Congratulations to my friend Anna Ushenina on becoming the World Women’s Chess Champion. Anna, who lives in the Ukraine played  forceful yet beautiful chess throughout the long event. In the end it was her uncompromising attitude at the board that allowed her to defeat the other players and become the fourteenth Women’s World Chess Champion. Below is my favorite game that Anna Ushenina played at FIDE Knock-Out Women’s World Championship:
