TWIC 1187-Aug 8,2017
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
Black was slowly ground down in a long endgame.
Game 2: Leenhouts-Iturrizaga
Black fell too far behind in development and was punished severely.
