Once you have seen one Chinsee Brilliancy,
half an hour later you want to see another.
So I was looking at the other games Jun Zhao played in the 2011 Chinese Champioship.
(see Thread 138988
He played two other entertaining crackers. (geddit? crackers....Chinese Crackers!!!)
Not is the same class as the linked game but good fun.
Maybe I'll show these two fine wins another time.
All is not well in the Jun Zhao camp.
He is having a spot of bother with the anti Najdorf 4.Qxd4
facing this twice and losing on both occassions.
An old favourite of mine after I read an article about it in BCM by Bill Hartston.
Scored a few nice wins with it.
There is a bucket load of theory on it showing you all the White sac-sac wins.
A good blitz weapon till one day rat-faced Ruxton played...
4...a6. Which stops 5. Bb5 after 4...Nc6.
Not a refutation but side steps all the fun and the rec'd move is 5.c4,
a Moroczy Bind type thing. And a Moroczy Bind type thing is certainly not me.
This is me.

Anyway let's look at Jun v 4.Qd4.
First he tries the tactical method saccing the exchange for a pawn.
He tries to mix it and mess it up but White has the game under control.
Hua Ni (2646) - Jun Zhao (2580) Chinese Championships 2011
Next the more sedate way and Black gets outplayed quite wonderfully.
Yue Wang (2734) - Jun Zhao (2580) Chinese Champioship 2011
Think I'll get a boat to China and show Jun 4...a6.
I know what you are thinking.....
Don't say it....Please don't say it....What ever you do, please don't say it....
But I must....
