The infectious enthusiasm of 10-year-old Tani Adewumi on spotting the solution to a puzzle posed to him by his coach Peter Svidler took top place on our first Clips of the Week competition, closely followed by Lawrence Trent almost losing his voice as Anish Giri refused to move in Armageddon, and Alexander Grischuk asking “why choose?” to a question on choosing an opening as a beginner. Submit your own clips of the upcoming week to win prizes including 3 weeks of chess24 Premium or a T-shirt of your choice!
Let’s take a look at the top clips of last week!
1. Tani’s epiphany
2. Giri breaks Lawrence
