ČEZ Chess Trophy 2014

American's burst continues

[09.06.2014 00:00:00] - Temperatures are rising all over the Czech republic and so is the tension in Michnas Palace. The task of heating up the atmosphere before the second game of David Navara and Hikaru Nakamura fell on GM Ján Markoš. His lecture "What GM does not say and a coach in your club does not know" was attended by pleasant amount of spectators. The hour dedicated to the lecture passed by really quickly and the main event of the second day of ČEZ CHESS TROPHY 2014 was ready to start.

Hikaru Nakamura, worlds number seven, played the white and has opened by 1.d4. One of the variation of Meran happened really quickly. Unlike the first game David Navara was the one to sacrifice pawns, but he did not get a full compensation during the match. One by one, Nakamura eliminate the activity of black pieces and he used his pawns mostly in the closing.

Nakamura,Hikaru (2775) - Navara,David (2724) [D46]
ČEZ Chess trophy 2014 Prague (2.1), 08.06.2014
[GM Ján Markoš]

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 d5 4.Nc3 c6 5.e3 Nbd7 6.Bd3 dxc4 7.Bxc4 b5 8.Bd3 Bd6 9.0-0 0-0 10.Qc2 Bb7 11.a3 Rc8 This position reminds me of a compressed spring, in just a few more moves a technical concert will start. No matter in what state you enter such a position, it is important to know a lot about it. 12.Rd1


[for example David claimed that 12.b4 leads to forced draw; after 12.Ng5 the white ended even worse in model game Aronian-Anand, Wijk an Zee 2014.] 12...c5! Dynamic and good. The black does not bother himself with covering pb5 because it could eventually lead to b2-b4 in better version. In exchange for a pawn je gets an airy game and kings wing of the white will be weakened. 13.Bxb5 Bxf3 14.gxf3 cxd4 15.Rxd4 Be5 [15...Nd5 is a different way of developing initiative. The black almost always combines attack against c3 and rivals king] 16.Rd1 Rc5 17.Qe2 Qb8 18.f4 [18.Bxd7 Bxh2+ 19.Kg2 Rg5+ 20.Kh1 Rh5 21.Bc6 Qc8 the black has sufficient compensation.] 18...Bxc3 19.Bxd7 Nxd7 20.Rxd7 [20.bxc3 Qc7 black knight heads on c4 with a brilliant game for pawn.] 20...Bf6 [20...Qc8 is interesting, because after 21.Rxa7 (Correct would probably be 21.Qd1 Bf6 22.e4 with threat Bf6. On the other hand, the white would have had to even more weaken his king...) 21...Bf6 the black has complete domination over the two free slopes and it more than enough compensate the two pawns.] 21.b4! He tactically frees himself 21...Bxa1 22.bxc5 Qc8 23.Qb5 Imidiate Qd3 with moving to the game is also possible. 23...a6 24.Qd3 Qxc5 25.Bd2 a5


It might seems that the black evened, he has "better" bishop and his king is better covered, but dynamic factors are the ones to decide: the white has his heavy figures in better positions and combines his threats AFTER EIGHT ROW WITH AN ATTACK ON pa5. For example if the white would change queens, the blacks position would be difficult. 26.h3! Very Unplesant and original move. After another Kg2 the white terminates all of the rivals figures on kings wing and after that he can consider on his own activity. [26.Qd6 Qh5 27.Bb4 axb4 28.Rd8 Qg6+ 29.Kf1 Qb1+ 30.Ke2 Qa2+! Leads just to a draw, as was shown by the winner after the game] 26...g6 [26...Bf6] 27.Rb7 Bf6 28.Rb5 Qc6 29.Bxa5 The white bravely takes material and then became passive and trusts that i tis jus temporary. 29...Qf3 30.Qf1 Rc8 31.Rb1 Kg7 [It was maybe worth considering ROZSIRIT FRONT against the white king: 31...e5 32.Qg2 Qe2 33.fxe5 Bxe5 Now the black has more ideas as Rc8-c5-g5 and generally it is even harder for the white king to be protected.] 32.Bb4 Rc2 33.Qg2 Qe2 [Both of the rivals after the game agreed that the wisest move to play would be 33...Qxg2+ 34.Kxg2 Bh4 35.Be1 Ra2 with moving to the closing, where the white cannot make any, but it still is not a clear draw... 36.Rb3 h6] 34.Qf1 Qh5?! It was better to repeat the moves. David was avoiding the troubles in variant [34...Qf3 35.Qg2 Qe2 36.Re1 Qd3 37.Qa8 Bd8 but it gets even worse.] 35.Qd3 Rc8 [35...Re2 36.Kg2 (36.Qd6 Kh6! 37.Qd8?? Efective, but weak... 37...Qf3 38.Bf8+ Kh5 39.Rb5+ Kh4 40.Qxf6+ Kxh3 And it is checkmate for the black.) ] 36.Kg2 Rd8 37.Qe4 The white queen is in a perfect position and it is obvious that counterplay of black on kings wing has ended 37...Qe2 38.Rc1 h6 39.a4 Qd3?! Without a queen the blacks position fails imediately. It would be better to do .Qb2. [39...Rd4 unfortunately does not work, the white takes his material and resists: 40.Qb7 Bh4 41.exd4 Qxf2+ 42.Kh1 Qe3 43.Rc3 Qe1+ 44.Kh2 Qf2+ 45.Qg2] 40.Qxd3 Rxd3 41.a5 Rb3 42.Rc4 Rb2


43.Ba3! Nice move, the white gets his rook behind the pawn. 43...Ra2 44.Ra4 Be7 45.a6 Bxa3 46.a7 Everything important in the ending happened in slope a, and the white completely dominated. Black gives up 1-0

The match of David Navara and Hikaru Nakamura continues today with the third game, you can watch it online from 4 PM. (program).
