Game of the Week III: Jumabayev, Rinat (2631) – Van Foreest, Lucas (2530)

Game of the Week III: Jumabayev, Rinat (2631) - Van Foreest, Lucas (2530)

The annual Tata Steel Chess Tournament always captivates the attention of the entire chess world. Every year, we witness great competition with dozens of brilliant games!

Even though the tournament consists of two groups – the Masters and the Challengers – the Masters’ games usually overshadow the Challengers’. Therefore, from time to time, some brilliancies could go unnoticed by the general public…which is why I wanted to highlight this particular Game of the Week.

Also, please consider picking up a copy of my first book, “2021 in 52 Games”. Your purchase would support the continuation of this blog series. Thank you for your support!
