DUDA, J vs. ANAND, V FIDE Online Chess Olympiad 2020

Hello Dear Readers,

This game was played between the young Polish Grandmaster Duda Jan and Viswanathan Anand. 

Anand started of brilliantly and got a firm hold of position in the early phase of game. But eventually he started to lose the grip! As it turned out, Duda Jan, playing white couldn’t take the advantage. In an array of mistakes that happened from both sides, white blundered in the end enabling black to win!

Find the best move for black!

Black to play!

White to play!

White to play!

A  roller-coaster game indeed but an insightful one too! The minute positional plans and instances were worth observing. Anand could have ensured an advantage if he would have opted to go with 26…g6 instead of the intuitive 26…Qd6 but decisions are always correct in the hindsight! Stay tuned for the next article. Solutions to yesterday’s puzzle is given below.
