During the Limburg Spring Blitz tournament we were gladly surprised by the irruption of 12-year-old Serdar Murat Yildiz. The Turkish youngster came up with a Fischer-like performance to win the event with a perfect score of 7/7, 2 points clear of the second place earned by Hans Hoonstra. Solid strategic concepts, fine tactical awareness, speed… all the necessary ingredients to put up this performance were displayed by Serdar. However, the most surprising aspect of his game was the endgame, impressive if we take into account his young age. Here we have a clear example:
Black won on time, but he would have won anyways within a few moves, as the b-pawn was promoting inevitably.
It also must be said that the time control was 5+0 which makes it even more remarkable. We hope that we can play again with Serdar sooner than later in another edition of Limburg Series tournament!
