Aronyak makes unbeaten debut in Spain

This was Aronyak's first-ever tournament outside of Asia and Russia. The only time he played in Russia was in Aeroflot Open B in 2019 before he became an IM. He expressed gratitude to Sadhana app for sponsoring him which allowed him to debut in Spain and begin his quest for the GM-title. He had already crossed 2500 early this month, now his search for the norms continue.

Aronyak - Macak, Round 9

Position after 13...Qh3

Black's ambitious attack 12...Qh4, 13...Qh3 on the kingside has gone wrong. 14.Nxc6 does not work because of Nxg3 and Black will aim for the perpetual check. Find out what is the correct continuation for White which Aronyak executed in the game.
