The Master Game: Hecht – Adorjan

Having built Andras Adorjan up with that somewhat dull draw with Larry Christiansen, here’s a game that he actually won. He returns Hecht’s pawn sacrifice to generate a strong initiative and goes on to win in flowing, beautiful style.

I’d also like to say that Hecht deserved to lose wearing glasses like those; they’re the kind of thing that give chess Grandmasters a bad name. They should have invited Miguel Quinteros or Yasser Seirawan, in fact almost anyone would have been better…
