GOTW: Abrahams - Kanarek, Reykjavik 2019

Our Canadian Game of the Week is Daniel Abrahams - GM Marcel Kanarek, from round 1 of the 2019 Reykjavik Open. 
In 2014 Daniel shocked the Reykjavik field by drawing with 2700 GM Li Chao in round 1. Could he do bettter this time?

White to play...

2019 Reykjavik Open
April 8-16, 2019

One of the world's top Open Swiss events returns, but with no 2700 players it is not quite the powerhouse it used to be. English GM Gawain Jones (2698) tops a field of 250 players, including 13 2600+ GMs.
