This game was from the 48th Biel Chess Festival of 2015. Czech Grandmaster David Navara played as white against against Polish Grandmaster Radoslaw Wojtaszek. Out of a Sicilian Defense, Najdorf, English Attack, we observe an early queen exchange and an imbalance via structure and minor piece. This game could have very easily been ‘swept under the rug’ with an early repetition of position, but Navara had a deeply calculated tightrope walk in mind instead. I’ve seen many king walks, and this one might just be the king of them all.
