Master Chess Game: Torre Throttles World Chess Champ Karpov with the Sicilian

Eugenio Torre (born November 4, 1951) – better known as Euge – happens to be Asia’s first Grandmaster. He has several distinctions to his name and he is just going to add to that! The 60-year-old “brand-new grandfather” would make a record 21st appearance in the World Chess Olympiad this year from August 27 to September 10 in Istanbul, Turkey. Read the report in Chess Blog. Here is one of Torre’s biggest wins. He created a sensation in 1976 by beating the then World Chess Champion Anatoly Karpov.
