Bobby Fischer’s “Game of the Century” is often cited as the best chess game by prodigy, but have you seen this masterpiece by the 11-year-old Jorge Sammour-Hasbun? Don’t miss the magnificent king hunt and glorious concluding checkmate!

Lessons: * Every junior should know their Italian Game theory. * When your opponent’s king is caught in the center, open lines as soon as possible. E.g. 11…e3! and 12…e3! * King hunts are about calculation, calculation, calculation. Sacrifice everything for mate.
