Honorable Mention: Closing in on a Top 3

As this game was being played, Brandon’ brother and formidable player in his own right thought he had really lost his mind. In his other games, when he didn’t understand what his brother was going for, but he could see some hint, some glimpse of a purpose behind throwing a knight away or being such a gambler — but the moves throughout the early and middle games from this short, frenzied fight seemed just ridiculous to the young player, who was then rated around 1980 himself.

After Bc4, it is certain that every onlooker thought the man a drunkard. 



Please pause the video and find the “winning” move.

First we note his king in the center, his pieces without future homes, many blocked by his own… so let’s tear open this king and keep it in the center, take it for a walk. 

We’ll be here again soon…




Pause once again …
