Tata Steel 2013 / Round 10



Peter Leko



Peter Leko looked to be on the unfriendly receiving end of a Kingside attack beginning a Rook sacrifice from Sokolov.


Alas, Leko saw it all and had envisioned a nice counter which basically meant that White’s “attack” blew up in his face.


The remainder of the game was handled excellently by Leko.
