Game of the Week - Sapozhnikov vs. Humphreys

Looking back at games from this spring, I was really intrigued by a game in the French Tarrasch from the Toronto Closed where White's daring pawn play was not rewarded. His early pawn sacrifice in a somewhat theoretical line just didn't turn out well at all. Try to find out where it all goes wrong!

White’s previous move, 1. exd5, was a mistake—with the simple 1. Be2, he could have kept a large advantage against Black’s forlorn king. What must Black do to seize a decisive advantage?

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. A King's Indian Defense gone wrong for White gives Black a strong queenside attack, and you'll have to see the game to find out more!

Black’s king is cornered from every side, how should White tighten the noose?
