Alekseenko, Kirill vs. Levin, Guy - Benasque Open 2024 1-0

In the game between Kirill Alekseenko playing with the white pieces and Guy Levin with the black pieces during the Benasque Open 2024 on July 11, the move Qe5 by Alekseenko is a complex and multifaceted decision. This move threatens a material win and also pins one of Black's pieces, creating a fork that attacks multiple pieces simultaneously. It develops the queen for active play, positioning it dynamically on the board. However, this move also overlooks several opportunities: it misses a chance to capture material, to reveal an attack on another piece, to capture an outpost, and to escape an attack. Additionally, it bypasses the possibility of a favorable piece exchange and a favorable material exchange. Despite its aggressive nature, the move ignores a superior threat that could have been more advantageous.
