Nihal Sarin – Aleksandrs Brikers

  1. Watching the game I was very surprised that a player of Nihal's class played the routine 10.d3, instead of the simple and killing 10.Nc4! Qb4 11.a3 Qc5 12. d4 winning on the spot. A very common tactical motif in these Scandi lines when Black hasn't taken time to include c6.
