The Queen is a useless piece

with one comment

A really terrific game. Among board games, my preference is Go, but chess has some wonderful aspects. This game, from 2016, is worth watching (if you play chess, of course). The comment is “Fabiano Caruana sacrifices his Queen for two Knights against his US compatriot Hikaru Nakamura in the 2016 London Chess Classic, stating that in this type of position the Queen is a useless piece.”
