(Sorry this posting is late, but I was gone over the weekend.)
There were many exciting games at the 2012 European Chess Championship, and the victory by young Avital Boruchovsky over his higher-rated, grandmaster opponent Boris Savchenko must rank high among them. Savchenko played the provocative Larsen Variation of the Alekhine Defense, and Boruchovsky took up the challenge with a vengeance. His won in spectacular fashion, and with this last round win clinched a GM norm (I think) and strongly suggested that he is a player to keep an eye on.
