Grivas – A delightful Miniature

by Efstratios Grivas
11/20/2023 – In the recent European National Teams Championship 2023, which is under way in the town of Budva (Montenegro), a delightful miniature was played in the sixth round. It was a sensation in the match Greece-Azerbaijan, where the white player was 126 rating points lower than his opponent, who defeated a player famous for his stubborn defensive skills! It is definitely worthwhile to follow the instructive commentary of GM Efstratios Grivas.
