Wijk aan Zee: Pentala Harikrishna enjoyed his queen sacrifice in Round 5

GM Pentala Harikrishna took a confident start in the strong Group A, which he entered only this year, now he is only half a point behind the leaders.

In today's Round 5 Harikrishna gained a nice win over Loek van Wely. "I think he choose a slightly dubious variation. Maybe to surprise me" this is how Pentala characterized the line of Sicilian defence chosen by his opponent, the one which has bee played hundred times and at a high level. "At some point I could have gone for two pieces for the rook in the middle game, but I though that the position was so good that I had to checkmate him," - Indian GM added. 

HARIKRISHNA - VAN WELY

 

We offer the diagram and the answer for those who wish to find "checkmate in three moves." You may see it if you'll mark out the space with the mouse:  38.Rf7+! Nxe7 39.Qxg6+! Kxg6 40.Be4x. Black resigned on Move 39.

"I was happy that he let me play Qg6, because you don't get this kind of position everyday, especially when you are on a winning side." - Harikrishna noted.

"During the game I had a feeling that it might end up in mate somehow, but then at some point I got ome hope again and actually two moves before the end I felt like I was doing fine. Well, then Rf7 was like a cold shower...", Loek van Wely told in his official commentary.
