– @o0lit3 vs @ChessTweets – Game #4 – Chess Opening – Center Game Variation

OCL SHOP: – (“Show More” for more info …)


This video examines the game @olit3, (The owner of chesstweets) vs ChessTweets. This was played towards the beginning of the Chess Tweets experiment nearly a year ago. White chose an interesting opening (the Center Game?) involving an early development of the queen to a somewhat exposed square on e3. Opposite sides castling ensued, and white eagerly sacrificed a knight to open up the H-file to create faster attacking chances against the black king. Black accepted the sacrifice, but only after a few well-calculated intermediate moves. The Chess Tweets community coldly repelled black’s attack and successfully achieved a winning counter-attack.
