Although this was planned, I have not been able to contain my excitement over the attack carried our by Krasenkow in this game. Many people consider chess boring, especially those who do not play it. The main reason for this is of course that they do nor understand it. To them there is nothing more boring than staring at some wooden pieces for hours and once in a while moving some of them around. If this was my experience of chess as well, I would be the most bored of all. But luckily I can unlock many of the secret meanings of these wooden pieces on the board and see various possible developments and the intentions, conflicts and tension of the position.
