TWIC 1187-Aug 8,2017

The Week in Chess issue 1187

Benoni Games

It was a bad week for the in the games featured. I was looking for a shortcut to looking at the 5-volume set of Kotronias on the King’s Indian. The Benoni seemed like a decent idea but the last book is now quite dated and there are many memory heavy variations.

Game 1: L’Ami-Butkiewicz


Dutch Open 2017

After 42..Kh6(Diagram)

Black was slowly ground down in a long endgame.

After 42..Kh6


Game 2: Leenhouts-Iturrizaga



Black fell too far behind in development and was punished severely.
