March 2023 Competition in the Grandmaster's Corner

 In 2016, at the Mieczyslaw Najdorf tournament in Warsaw, a little boy named Maciej Czopor received the prize for the most beautiful game in tournament B from us. He was 12 years old at the time. Today, as a 19-year-old youngster, he played in the Cambridge International Open tournament. He finished it in a good 14th place, 5 games won and 2 lost. We took them for analysis and won in fine style... They will be in the March edition of the Grandmaster Corner Competition.

5th March, 16:00. Mate 43 and mate 44 (various continuations). You play black (Open position-Play-Play black). Time to solve 25 minutes. Prize $20.
