PLAYING AGAINST THE WEAKNESS

ENCHEV, I vs. WOJTASZEK, R FIDE Online Chess Olympiad 2020

Hello Dear Readers,

The Polish Grandmaster Wojtaszek is an extremely resilient player very well known for his versatile opening reportire. In this game against the Bulgarian Grandmaster Ivajlo Enchev, he skillfully manages to win a fairly balanced game.

After white’s f3, the e3 pawn became potentially feeble. By the exemplar knight manouvre, Wojtaszek skillfully traded white’s strong knight that was serving to be the key defender of the e3 pawn. Although white managed to regain the pawn, his king lacked shelter and in the end he committed a mistake. 

I hope you enjoyed the game! Stay tuned. Before you proceed, down below is a puzzle which you can try.

White to play. (Level: Rook)
