Hello everyone and welcome to a very Nice game from a match that pretty much Just started it's the 2021 Challengers Chester Champion pragnananda versus the 2022 Challengers Chester champion pranav And the two of them are gonna brawl it Out for ten thousand dollars uh the Match will be played in Tel Aviv and It's gonna be uh four series of mini Matches two series of rapid and the two Series of Blitz and this is the first Decisive game that took place from the Rapid section so let's check it out it's Quite a nice one I'm sure you guys are Are going to enjoy it uh let's dive Straight into it yeah so Prana with the White pieces opens with Pawn to E4 we Have Pawn to E5 by Prague Knight to F3 Knight to C6 and now Bishop to B5 Duru Lopez is on the board with A6 progos for Morphe's defense the shop to A4 and now Bishop to C5 as this is very very uh Popular nowadays with C3 and now Knight G37 B5 still the more popular move but Knight gt7 E7 also the second most Popular so nothing weird happening here D4 striking in the center E Capture C Captress and Bishop to B4 width check Bishop to D2 and we have captors Captures Knight B captures on D2 and Pawn to D5 now now all been played Before but the moves that are known here Are Ponte E5 and there is uh one only One game where H3 was played uh but here

We have uh castles by pranav and it is Now as of move 10 that we have a Completely new game so let's see how the Game continues D captures an E4 we have Knight captures on e4 and here Prague Castles H3 stopping Bishop to G4 and now Bishop to F5 we have Rook D1 defending The Knight and the pawn to H6 taking Away that G5 Square from White's pieces Uh Rook the C1 and now Bishop captures On e4 now okay this is uh giving up your Your Bishop maybe a bit too soon but It's uh hard to say what what to Actually play here maybe to bring the Knights to G6 but then you can't move The bishop maybe you're gonna go B5 First uh but Prague wants to play Queen To D6 and for that he needs to eliminate It this Knight so Bishop captures uh an E4 Rook captures and queen to D6 Now Product develops the queen connects the Rooks and also uh this is a rapid uh so The players uh have uh uh 10 minutes for The entire game plus there's a five Second increment uh starting from move One with A3 uh Rook 8 to d8 and now Queen to C2 so now if anything uh moves Out of that C file you can always Capture that pawn on C7 uh Queen to F6 Now and Rook C the E1 uh here pranav Doubles up on the E file Rook to D6 by Prog now getting ready to double up on The D file and now Knight to E5 and here Already complications are starting to

Get a bit serious because if you capture On D4 here let's say Knight captures on D4 and queen captures on C7 seems like Okay it's perfectly fine for black but Uh black is dead lost here like there's Nothing you can play you can try some Like B5 you attack the bishop uh this Knight the G4 move is uh so deadly you Attack the queen there is now a triple Attack on the Knight on E7 let's say Queen G6 you're gonna capture an E7 and Okay black will win back the piece but Now 95 and now okay you're attacking the F 7.3 times the queen is overloaded you Cannot defend F7 and The Rook here you Can try some like Queen F6 but not Knight D7 connects nicely here Forks the Queen and the rook and black loses a lot Of material ended the game so after Knight the E5 we have B5 by Prague Chasing away the bishop Bishop back to B3 and now Rook captures on D4 by Prague And again uh what do you play here this Is a very very complicated that if you Go for Knight captures on C6 then just Throw captures on e4 and no problem There Queen captures any fortnite Captures on C6 and everything is nicely Defended probably is even a pawn up so Uh what you have to play here and the What wasn't played in the game is in Fact Knight captures on F7 here if Prana Found this uh he would uh definitely uh Have an advantage in the position the

Problem is you cannot capture the Knight Defro captures on F7 then look at this Rook to E6 the only winning move so That's why it's probably uh so difficult To spot attacks the queen and now Attacks the Knight twice here and once You move the queen uh Rook characters on C6 and knife Knight captures and C6 just Rook to E8 or any other line it's Completely winning for white but a very Hard to spot you would however have After Knight captures and F7 this Rook Captures an E4 idea but still Knight the G5 opens up a discovery you will connect With the Rook nicely and after King day Trade Knight captures on e4 and okay the Game continues but the white will always Be a little bit better so that was Definitely in the position so not uh Winning by force but pranaf could have Uh taken the up the upper hand here but He went Knight to G4 right away and now Probably just plays Queen to G5 we have Rook captures on D4 and now Knight Capture Sandy for attacks the queen and The bishop Queen captures on C7 and now Knight to G6 uh and how do you continue Here uh again very difficult the bishop To A2 was played the bishop is hanging Here but you should play Queen back to C3 or even better Bishop to D1 or it's Hard to say what's better but after Bishop to A2 uh there's a there's a huge Hole in the position and Prague spots it

He plays Pawn to H5 and now you cannot Move the Knight if you move the Knight The Knight to F3 check the G Pawn is Pinned uh you will you will just uh lose A lot of material here so after H5 Queen To C3 was played which makes sense okay You capture the Knight on G4 I'm gonna Capture on D4 uh the problem is uh Rook The d8 defends the Knight and the the Knight on G4 is still hanging so here Rook to E4 uh attacking again the Knight On D4 but now comes in Knights the F4 And uh again uh it's so complicated that Even Prague missed the idea here because He has to play h capital San G4 point is That after Rook captures on D4 Rook Capture Sunday for Queen captures uh G Captures and H3 now threatens Checkmate And it's a very very hard to defend you Will have to play G3 then the Knight Comes the E5 the F3 uh becomes Incredibly weak and black will not be Able to withstand this uh but okay uh It's a rapid game like I said Knight to F4 was played and this makes it uh old The more complicated uh because now look At all of these Knights the E2 checks Forking the king and the queen Everything is just hanging here like if You move the real Pro captures on D4 Immediately Knights the to Chuck wins The queen on C3 so instead after Knight To F4 Queen the E3 was played a king to H2 is the only move here but who plays

King to each during a rapid game uh so Queen to E3 was played and now look at This age captures on G4 proxies alright Thank you for the piece and now again You cannot capture here because that E2 Uh Square will always be hanging just Rook characters on D4 and you cannot Recapture again you will blunder so After H Captain G4 Bishop captures an F7 With check King the H7 and now uh the Problem is and this is probably the one That pranav missed if you play Rook Captures on F4 now then there's Queen Captures on F4 like all of the all of The forks just working Black's favor Queen captures on f490 to check King Wherever and now just Knight captures on F4 will be Checkmate so after King stage Seven King the HD was played a few moves Too late because in that the position a Few moves ago the king H2 was the Absolute strongest move to play so feel Free to pause the video now and try to Find the forced mate in 9 for Prague While I give you a couple of seconds So uh for those of you who were able to Do it congratulations on spotting this Brilliancy and for those of you who just Want to enjoy the show it is Knight to F3 with check this is what proc played And only one more move was played Because uh you can't go to G1 if you go To H1 then Rook to D1 check and if you Go to G3 then look at this Knight stage

Five check Bishop captures on H5 only Move Queen to H for check King to F4 and Now Rook to f8 with check you have to Block with the bishop and this will now Be Checkmate so after Knight to F3 G Captures on F3 was played and here Probably just played G captures on H3 And it was in this position unmove 30 That Prana resigned the game as there is Nothing more to be done here even though The Knight on F4 is still uh hanging There is no move that the defense Queen To G2 Checkmate there is absolutely Nothing you can do here there you can Give some silly checks here to maybe Prolong the game a little bit but of Course these gentlemen do not play Such Moves Uh so yeah uh that's the game I hope you Guys enjoyed it uh pranav had a a better Position and he could have taken the Upper hand if he spotted that Bishop Captures an F7 move but not in this Position uh in the position uh that we Discussed a bit earlier uh here after This uh uh Rook captures on G4 uh here Knight captures and F7 should have been Played not Bishop captures on F7 uh but Yeah here if you found this then he Would have a great game but he missed This one little detail and then uh it Was pretty much a Prague for the rest of The game uh so yeah once again I hope You guys uh hope you guys enjoyed it

Really a wild one uh if uh another Interesting game arises from this Competition I will definitely cover it And if you spot one also do use hashtag Suggestion always use hashtag suggestion Uh as that makes uh it a lot easier for Me to spot incredible games for us to Enjoy uh so yeah once again hope you Enjoyed it I would like to wish a very Happy birthday terretto hope you had a a Good one and that you will win many Great games and I would like to thank Croatia and Nikola German the Hagler and The PG mastering for a contribution to My channel thank you a lot I really Appreciate it as usual you can check two Of my previous videos here thank you for Watching and I will see you soon Continuing to check up on you wonderful Suggestions and whatever else happens in The Chess World uh thank you all I will See you soon and have an excellent rest Of your day
