For one of the first times in many many years, Kuwait finally has a representative to play for our team. Of course, that person in none other than Bader Al Hajeri. His current FIDE ELO is 2130. Even though he is not performing at his usual level, he’s playing some great chess with great chances for both, even till the endgame. If your interested in watching his games, you can visit the site that will be provided below.
In one of his games against Sabar Daouda from Maurtania, FIDE ELO 2097, Bader (white) missed an amazing tactic that would have won him the game easily. However, he played a good move either way and won it about 20 moves later. Now this is a puzzle for everyone. Can you find the move that Bader missed?
