GM Sergey Fedorchuk (2657)




En el Campeonato de Francia Por Equipos 2015 se enfrentaron 12 equipos por el sistema de liga. Encontramos jugadores de élite como el GM Anish Giri, GM Wesley So, GM David Navara, GM Dmitry Jakovenko. Fue un interesante torneo donde me llamó mucho la atención, un jugador no muy conocido: GM Sergey Fedorchuk de Ucrania. En el campeonato frances, obtuvo muy buenas victorias, una ante Wesley So y la que presentaré a continuación con un gran sacrificio!!
(Sin comentarios la partida So-Fedorchuk)
