Grandmaster Magazine #21
(Grandmaster Challenge Match)
This edition of Grandmaster Magazine features a Blitz and Blindfold chess challenge between English GMs David Norwood and Jim Plaskett.
The match starts with a 10 minutes game, then a 30 minute blindfold contest followed by a series of blitz games with colors alternating. The first player to reach 4 points wins and with both players having a reputation for aggressive, tactical play, the match was sure to be very entertaining.
After each move we hear the thoughts of the players, giving us a unique glimpse into the mind of a GM, and there is further commentary from IM Andrew Martin.
There are plenty of instructive attacks too with both players winning a game thanks to brilliant Queen sacrifices that expose the King and ultimately checkmate him.
