Chess

At 14-and-a-half Peter Leko was the youngest grandmaster ever (a record since reduced to 14 years and one month by Etienne Bacrot). At 19, Leko is now competing against the world's top players in Tilburg. The following game is a good example of his energetic style. For the first 15 moves, White goes straight for his opponent's throat, but after that, Black advances unstoppably.

White: Joel Lautier
