European Championship 2017, Part 3 by IM Bill Paschall
This lecture features a battle between two rising stars from round 4 of the European Individual Championship 2017. Black employs a rare move order in the Benoni and white counters with ultra aggressive preparation. Black employs a new move with 9...h6, but the depth of his preparation is insufficient. Matlakov has seen deeper and Black's king is in serious danger.
