Tata Steel 2013 A-Rd11 Leko

Here is a beautiful game by Peter Leko from Tata Steel Group A played in rd11. The Tata Steel event was beautifully photographed and organized.

Van Wely defended aggressively with the Sicilian Dragon but Leko invited a RRB-RRN ending and showed some fabulous technique to grind out the win in model fashion.
