GOTW: Vivas - Song, 2017 PanAms

Canadian IM Michael Song won the 2017 Pan-American Youth Championship U18 in Costa Rica this month. For our Canadian Game of the Week, IM Michael Song annotates his round 7 win with Black in a very theoretical Scotch. 

 Michael's notes to this game offer us a look inside both the opening preparation of a serious young player, and the in-game emotional ups-and-downs on the top board in an international tournament. 

If you enjoy Michael's analysis, look for his forthcoming book with GM Razvan Preotu, "The Chess Attacker's Handbook", due out from Gambit in November (possibly sooner!).
