    https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2019...lashvili_David What would you play on move 21 for white? I would certainly want to play e5 to bypass the attack on the F-file instinctively (and try to make it work with analysis). Timur played 21.g3 opening up his kings position and his opponent showed him how to attack the king. Nicely done! (by his opponent)

        https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2019...-Gareyev_Timur I dont usually look at games like this but I admired Timur's tactics and persistence at winning this very tough endgame.


        • #19
          https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2019...lmiron_Antonio Tmur finishes off a nice position with Ncxd5 (aimed at f6) and an accurate final move of Qa4.

              Timur’s Tactics

              August 19, 2019

              From David Hater at Chess Life Online:

              GM Timur Gareyev scored a perfect 6-0 in the 2019 Pacific Coast Open (July 18-20, Van Nuys, CA), earning $3, 100 for his sterling performance. Curiously, Gareyev probably could have made a draw (or two) on the last day and still taken clear first (and the same amount of money). When I raised this possibility with Gareyev, he said he was feeling good and simply wanted to play some good chess. Gareyev has annotated his two critical fifth and sixth round wins exclusively for CLO.


              The two games:

              Pacific Coast Open
              Round 5, July 20, 2019

                Thanks Wayne for finding this and sharing and thanks Timur for the ideas. In the first game e5 and e6 turns the position into dynamite and 27.g3 provokes Black into getting his knight trapped.


                • #23
                  https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2019...olubov_Saveliy Timur misses many tactical opportunities in this game including 24.Rxb7 Bc6 25.Rxe6! which he would normally see. The game is very interesting.

                      https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2020...makin_Vladimir 20.Nxd5! a knock you out of your chair type tactic (actually remove the defender and checkmate threat) especially if you are a grandmaster.

                        https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2020...rnali_S_Dharia Hide the white king behind the advanced black H-pawn and then develop, develop, develop preferably with threats.

                          https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2020...-Gareyev_Timur A whole bag full of tactics in this game but the one I like best is 33...b3!! - the triumph of the passed pawn.
