“mamak trick” at the highest level!

image image

Anish Giri and Wesley so , the chess supertalents met in the 11 the round of corus B and what a game!

Anish sacrificed a piece and move menacingly to the white King. Then suddenly the attacked stalled .With 2 minutes left, Giri makes another sacrifice and hoped for a swindle or ” mamak trick”

So somehow failed to see 36…Rf1. With that move So resigned , Giri gains an important point to lead Corus B by a point and win 2 ardent fans in Abdullah che  Hassan and Kamaluddin Yusof (kings of mamak trick malaysia!)

Giri  admits he is lucky .So unlucky for wesley!
