There is lots of great chess happening all around. Plenty of Chess King games to study and enjoy. The Sao Paulo Grand Slam Chess Masters has begun with six strong chess Grandmasters: Magnus Carlsen, Levon Aronian, Viswanathan Anand, Sergey Karjakin, Fabiano Caruana and Francisco Vallejo. Levon Aronian dominated in his game with Sergey Karjakin in the first round. Aronian said he had prepared the line and was waiting to use it!

Don’t miss the funky 16.Bh6 and at 25.Rxd7 do you know why the Black Queen cannot take back the Rook?
