Your Move: Test positions from games in 2014 Tata Steel Tournament

IGM 2437

Greetings everyone! I'm Grandmaster Julio Sadorra and I would like to present you some puzzles I derived from the master games at the ongoing 2014 Wijk Aan Zee.

These puzzles are set up "Chessity style"- no tactical themes, no clues about the evaluation (whether you should be looking for a win or draw), just calculate and make decisions like you would in a real game!

The aim of these positions is not only about finding the correct solutions, but for you to compare your calculation and decision-making skills with Grandmasters and Masters who played these games. It goes without saying that you will benefit most from these exercises without using chess engines:). I will post the solutions later.

All the best!
