Daniel King analyzes Baku Olympiad round 8

9/11/2016 – In the swarm of games and players at the Baku Olympiad, the Georgian player Baadur Jobava has stood out by now as an outright favorite for the Board One gold medal. His performance has been one of superlatives to say the least, combining technical play and imaginative attacking. In round eight he defeated the extremely solid and experienced Ruslan Ponomariov from Ukraine in a astonishing 21 moves. This was not the result of a blundered piece or rook, it was the result of a lightning sacrificial attack.
