GAMES OF THE 2014 ELECTRONIC KNIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

White conducts a sterling attack in this final round.

White’s Bishop locates itself on Move 30 and doesn’t move again until Move 70.

White uses a familiar winning technique – restrict Black’s moves until his pieces have almost no scope.

This is a war — Just the opposite of what you would expect a draw to be like.

Fight, fight, and then fight some more.

This is how a draw should be played.
