I will hunt you down: Yakimenko (RUS) v Szilagyi (HUN)

This has got to be one of the most merciless compound marching attacks I’ve seen. It comes from the tense the bronze medal match between Russia and Hungary at the 2014 World Championships. Szilagyi is throwing out all kinds of heroic defensive measures, but Yakimenko is as cold as ice.

Again, big comp finals have all the  slow-mo. Featuring Aron Szilagyi looking very unhappy:

There’s some fabulous stuff, particularly in the last bout between Kovalev and Szilagyi, which promises to be a rich source of future posts.

This work is made possible by the research work done by the staff and students at the Sydney Sabre Centre, so if you like this I would really appreciate you leaving a review on Facebook and Google – 5 stars would be great but even better if you tell us why!
We read every single review and are always looking to improve how we do things because ultimately Sydney Sabre is all about  sharing this great sport and making it accessible to everyone. I know that this sport is a big part of who I am today, and wish this place was around when I was growing up.
If that isn’t enough motivation for you, here’s another reason: we will give you a stackable 5% discount off on anything we sell (services and stuff) for each review that you leave for us, for one transaction. You can spend it on yourself or use it to subsidise a friend (or a whole bunch of friends, if you want to bring along a horde).
Thanks in advance.
