Oct-27-06  BIDMONFA: Roland Berzinsh


Dec-18-09  dagwood2005:

A brilliant effort from this master!

Mar-12-10  alexrawlings: I understand that the game between Roland Berzinsh and Michael Hennigan at last year's London Classic Open (2009) won the brilliancy prize. Could someone or chessgames post this game?

Here is the position when the brilliancy move was made:
