They would say only a Russian could do this. We would say anyone could do it with Chess King. Actually! Here is a fantastic game from the ongoing 7th edition of the Tal Chess Memorial. Round 4 saw Magnus Carlsen – World No. 1 from Norway – play an all out attack with White against Russia’s Alexander Grischuk. Hold your breath and watch the game. Dare you play it in a tournament?  

Carlsen,M (2835) – Grischuk,A (2761)
