Game of the Week - Knox vs. Qin

The North American Youth Championship in Toronto appears to be a big success, and this week's game comes from the sixth round between Canadian juniors Christopher Knox and Joey Qin.

Game of the Week - Sambuev vs. Morozevich

Although this week's game isn't exactly a "Canadian" game in that it wasn't played in Canada, it deserves to be shown as it is the biggest upset of GM Bator Sambuev's career. A very exciting back-and-forth game from the first round of the World Cup in Tromso, Norway, goes his way against one of the world's best.
