Anish Giri about Reggio in CVT, and fact-checking CVO!

Anish Giri about Reggio in CVT, and fact-checking CVO!

In his latest column for ChessVibes Training, to be published next Saturday, Anish Giri shows his spectacular win against NIkita Vitiugov. His excellent Petroff against Hikaru Nakamura was discusses in this week's ChessVibes Openings. Seriously, haven't you subscribed yet...?

Winning in Reggio - Of course I will show you something from the tournament in Reggio Emilia, where I finished sole first. Here’s part 1 of my game against Nikita Vitiugov, a nice Sicilian!

This is how Anish Giri starts his column for ChessVibes Training #37, which will be sent to our subscribers next Saturday. You can enjoy what was arguably Anish's best game in Reggio Emilia, the first super tournament he won in his career!

And for ChessVibes Openings #158, which was published yesterday, Anish happily agreed to check Merijn van Delft's trend article for page 3. There, the Dutch IM discusses the theoretical status of the 5.Nc3 Petroff after the game Nakamura-Giri.

All in all it was a chess week influenced heavily by our co-editor, whom we wish lots of success in the Tata Steel GM Group A!
