IM Oladapo Adu will be meeting Nigerian compatriot Chikwere Onyekwere in a highly-publicized match in March. It should be an interesting matchup. "Dapo" has been very active on the American scene and has been able to put together solid results. While the big performance in a major tournament has eluded him he continues to play enterprising chess.

In this game, he plays a sluggish opening only to set ablaze the board in the late middlegame. His sacrificial barrage unsettled the position, but with accurate play, black would have been able to stay on top. As it turned out Dapo was fortunate. Nevertheless, this game demonstrates a fighting spirit, but also shows that one has to be well-prepared in theoretical openings to avoid a quick, devastating defeat.
