World Junior Chess Championships: Grandelius-Ipatov 0-1

This must be some record of sorts! When did you last see all the eight pawns rolling down the chess board through the middlegame? The first Black pawn falls only on Move 30! But, that’s not the main reason we’re featuring this chess game tonight. Congratulations to GM Alexander Ipatov for becoming the World Junior Chess Champion 2012 and joining a list of illustrious chess champions. Chess King showcases the game Grandelius, Nils (2562) – Ipatov, Alexander (2577) 0-1 played at the just-concluded World Junior Chess Championships in Athens, Greece.
