World Chess Cup 2013 Ghost Pin: Fabiano Caruana – Julio Granda Zuniga 1-0

The big upset-maker from Peru Julio Granda Zuniga fell for an oversight completely misreading a pin. Black blundered with 20…f5?? not realising that the following en passant was safe enough. Black was forced to resign right away.


Caruana, Fabiano – Granda Zuniga, Julio E

    I like Caruana, but rooting for the underdog here – fight back Julio

  • alexis, nz says:

    all credit to the young Italian but maybe Zuniga should not have tried to get the Italian out of the book so soon in the opening
