    Aeroflot Miniatures!

    In this series we carefully chose 10 exciting games from one of the largest chess events of the year- the 2012 Aeroflot Open. What makes it a unique event is the sheer quantity of titled players and their very different levels and backgrounds. As a result many games in the tournament feature wild complications and creative ideas, and usually include a wide array of mistakes and outright blunders. These annotated games represent battles using diverse concepts and tactics, and show off special opening choices. Each game concentrates on a unique theme that will likely benefit and better prepare you for tournament play. For the sake of simplicity, each game presented here ends under move 30.  Hope you enjoy the adventure!
