Wohl Takes the Lead
IM Alex Wohl today snatched the lead in the Australian Open when he defeated FM Jesse Sales in their round 6 encounter. The Pinoy player dropped a piece and looked to be lost, but he, in fact, had a saving maneouvre.
Position after 48. Bg3
In this position, Sales, perhaps eager to recover the piece, continued with 48...h4. He lost by the 77th move. What would have been a better continuation?
