June 2021 – Opening Novelties
In June, we witnessed some interesting opening novelties that we can’t help but lower our magnifying glasses on.
Last month, we had a look at Opening Novelties in May where we looked at some instructive games from the FIDE candidates tournament 2020.
This month, we will be analyzing games from Grand Chess Tour June 2021, The Prague Festival Masters, and Gelfand Challenge 2021.
