TWIC 1159: Open Games with the Spanish
Spanish Open Games
Game 1: Eljanov-Karjakin
Berlin 4.d3 Bc5(C65)
The 6.Qe2 line in the Berlin middlegame is a popular branch. White tried a more modest approach with g3 and c4/Nd5 but could not get much against the solid Berlin formation.
White is more active in the centre and has dreams of a kingside attack so how should Black manage the defence?
Game 2: Azarov-Zhigalko,S
Breyer 9.h3 Nb8(C95)
The solid Breyer continues to be a tough nut to crack.
White needed some cooperation in the attacking phase but took the necessary risks to get some winning chances.
