Chess miniatures

There is much one can learn from studying chess miniatures - decisive games under 30 moves - from how (not) to play the opening, to how to start and conduct an attack.

Game:  Karl Robatsch v Vlastimil Jansa (1974)

Black creates a complication with 10...Nxd5

    Will the attack pay off ?  Video (3:39)

* Karl Robatsch has an unorthodox defence named after him 1 e4 g6

👍 An illustrative miniature won by Black using this defence
