The Chessable Masters event is currently ongoing and you can follow all of the live action over at Chess24.
We can’t all reach the top of the chess world and play in such elite events. Today, however, it is time to take your place at the chess board and imagine you have a golden opportunity to beat the world’s best players in the Chessable Masters event.
Do you have the power to find the winning continuations from the following positions?
Some positions are trickier than others and, to keep you on your toes, they are not necessarily arranged in order of difficulty.
Nepomniachtchi – Artemiev
Black played the natural-looking 25 …Rhe8. What did he miss?
Dubov – Artemiev
Black is losing but made one last attempt to turn the tables with 33 …Qe4.
- What is Black’s threat?
- What is the best move for White?
Grischuk – Harikrishna
Black has just retreated the knight from e5 to d7. Which powerful move did Grischuk now play?
