Wesley So sacrificed not one, but two Knights for a winning attack against the German GM Prusikin!!

Does Wesley So have a chance for his first GM norm? He just drew his game against Veresla Eingorn.

Unbelievable! He outplayed the GM and he made it looks so easy. I think So will be a GM within a year- year-and-a-half
