Grivas: A Sense of Danger

by Efstratios Grivas
1/20/2024 – Top players have a rather developed sense of danger; an asset that protects them from awkward moments. In the following game from round four of the Tata Steel Tournament in Wijk aan Zee we can observe how the great Indian talent Gukesh felt comfortable in his game against top-ten grandmaster Anish Giri, completely missing the so much needed sense of danger. The very experienced chess trainer GM Efstratios Grivas takes us meticulously through the very instructive game. | Photos: Lennart Ootes
