Kostya’s Games of the Day: August 10th

IM Kostya Kavutskiy will be presenting an annotated Game of the Day each day over the course of the 120th U.S. Open. Today, in fact, he presents two!

Don’t forget to watch the livestream from Orlando for Sunday’s final round beginning at 3pm EDT. Kostya will co-host with IM Eric Rosen on our US Chess Twitch channel.

Today I wanted to highlight two games from the Open. In the first, FM Justin Paul scores a huge upset over GM Nikola Mitkov, thanks to a powerful queen sacrifice. In the second game, a missed brilliancy by GM Dariusz Swiercz, who had GM Timur Gareev on the ropes, but not enough time to deliver the killing blow.
