An endgame masterpiece by Victor Bologan!

Moldovian super Grandmaster, Victor Bologan played the endgame of his life on 9th of April 2014 against the very talented Russian GM Aleksander Shimanov.

A thorough gentleman off the board and a true genius on it: GM Victor Bologan.

Black's last move was e6-e5+. The question is where should white retreat his king?

Its not often you will see such a stunning long term sacrifice in a game between two 2600+ GMs in such a simplified position.

A victory of excellent co-ordination! Take a bow to the great Victor!!

One can afford to smile a little after playing such a terrific masterpiece!

I thank Mr. Vinod Bhagwat for bringing this game to my notice.
