Tihon Chernyaev vs Aleksandrs Karasevics | 2018 FIDE Cadets World Rapid Chess Championship

Tihon Chernyaev from Ukraine played as white against Aleksandrs Karasevics from Latvia during round 4 of the 2018 FIDE Cadets World Rapid Chess Championship, Under 10. This event was held in Minsk, Belarus from June 21-25. The opening is a Caro-Kann, mainline variation where mutliple imbalances would soon surface. Inherit with the mainline, Chernyaev maintains the kingside space advantage throughout, and soon thereafter it’s a brief knight versus bishop battle. A unique endgame arises with only all majors present, and nearly all pawns frozen. The big question would be how exactly could Chernyaev break down Karasevics’s compact defense? Would there be only 1 correct path to victory?
