Mitropa Cup 2008

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

The Mitropa Cup team tournament concluded today, and the following position from Italian WGM Olga Zimina’s game really caught my attention. Talk about a beautiful way to cap off a tournament! Wouldn’t we all like to have such a last round game? :)

And this wasn’t some blitz event either. The time controls, according to the FIDE website, were “90 minutes for 40 moves, followed by 30 minutes to finish the game, with 30 seconds increment after each move starting from move 1.”

See if you can find her concluding combination.
