Here are some interesting games from this weeks TWIC issue.
Game 1: Karjakin-Aronian
Black mismanaged his position after accepting an isolated pawn for activity and was then positionally smothered.
The knight is king and the e-pawn a permanent target but what is the plan now?
Game 2: Jones-Ragger
Scotch Game, Mieses Attack (C45)
White played a model endgame gambit in the topical Scotch Opening.
White has a nice good knight vs bad bishop RN-RB endgame. How to continue?
Game 3: Grigorian-Harutyunian
Vienna Game 3.g3 Bc5(C26)
A typical plan for White is f4-f5 and a kingside pawn avalanche.
Black must make a key defensive decision early in the game.
Black voluntarily opened up his kingside in a sharp chaotic game and now must make a decision about the Bf2.
(a) Guard it 24..Qc5 or
(b) Move it with 24..Bxg1+
