Mcshane Takes 1st at Remco Heite Tournament


In the Netherlands this week the Remco Heite Tournament unfolded intensely and was neck and neck until the final round, featuring top talents L’Ami, Giri, Van Wely, Mcshane, and Peter Heine Nielsen among others. The games as well as a video can be found over at chess vibes. The chess was entertaining, and I have included my favorite game from the tournament below, in which black’s rook goes on a suicide kamikaze mission to try and swindle a draw, but white marches on for 20 moves but manages to find shelter.  Check the game out after the jump.
