IM Sabino Brunello: 100% in Italian League

It’s a continuing theme of Authors in Action. IM Sabino Brunello’s book Attacking the Spanish is nearly finished, so last week he played in the Italian Team Championship and scored 7/7. 100% is always impressive, but it’s incredible against a field that included two GMs and two IMs.

Sabino’s rating is well over 2500, so he just needs a third GM norm to claim the title. I am sure he will not have long to wait.

Jacob certainly deserves some of the credit as Sabino is one of his pupils. GM Lars Schandorff also contributed as the following game from Italy follows a line he recommended in Playing the Queen’s Gambit.
