I will hunt you down: Yakimenko (RUS) v Szilagyi (HUN)

This has got to be one of the most merciless compound marching attacks I’ve seen. It comes from the tense the bronze medal match between Russia and Hungary at the 2014 World Championships. Szilagyi is throwing out all kinds of heroic defensive measures, but Yakimenko is as cold as ice.

There’s some fabulous stuff, particularly in the last bout between Kovalev and Szilagyi, which promises to be a rich source of future posts.
