GM Mihail Marin narrowly missed the podium at last year's World Senior Championships, but at least his game against Milos Pavlovic was awarded with a brilliancy prize. The GM from Romania presents this also theoretically interesting game with the English Symmetry Variation in video.
In a second short opening video, Adrian Mikhalchishin uses the game Beljavsky-Predke (2018) to present motifs in the Accepted Queen’s Gambit in the line 1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.e4 Nc6 4.Nf3 Bg4.
Alireza Firouzja and Peter Heine Nielsen are the two star authors of this issue. The Iranian top player accepted his opponent's invitation, Jorge Cori, and broke the black fianchetto position with the thematic advance f4-f5. And Peter Heine Nielsen explains two recent highlights of his protégé, Magnus Carlsen, from the Blitz and Rapid World Championship! Other authors of the "Lucky bag": Romain Edouard, Lubomir Ftacnik, Luis Engel and many more.
Georgios Souleidis presents the game Carlsen-Giri (Shamkir 2019) and shows how the world champion started his attack with a pawn sacrifice out of nowhere - and how he managed to mobilize all his pieces against the black king within a few moves!
