ČEZ Chess Trophy 2015

No tie (yet)

[16.06.2015 00:00:00] - The Czech fans pinned their hopes on the third game of the match between grandmasters David Navara and David So. After the defeat in the second game on Sunday, the Czech player had the advantage of white pieces, which many saw as an opportunity for a counter-attack.

But David is not very successful in the Prague duel. It might be the fatigue showing, because just before the Prague festival, David Navara attended two very difficult competitions (the Czech Chess Championship and The French League).

Not even in the third game did the Czech No 1 managed to benefit from the advantage at the opening. After the 17th move, the chessboard showed the following position, which can’t have made the best Czech chess player happy.



He said himself that during the game he confused the system of the bishop retreating to e2, which he used in the game, with the system of the bishop retreating to d3. The position is therefore slightly better for the Black.

Everyone watched with great interest Wesley’s move 21…Se5-f4, with which he exchanged his seemingly useful bishop for his opponent’s passive one.



In the commentator room, the intention of the US representative was highly praised and the element of surprise and depth of thought was acknowledged also by the grandmaster Martin Petr. It is necessary to say that the audience in the commentator room knew about the move in advance, because the commentator of the match, grandmaster Robert Cvek, suggested it after a short period of thinking. After the end of the game, the world No 9 gave a prosaic reply to a question from the audience: “I simply didn’t want the White to have two bishops at that position.”

In the end, the grandmaster Navara managed to eliminate the small advantage of his opponent with a precise 29th move 29.Dd4!.



After this move, both players agreed that the game was tight. After a couple of moves, the truce was finally called.

Today is the final day of the chess festival at Michna Palace. At 3 PM it will commence with grandmaster Robert Cvek’s talk titled “Turning centre game into advantageous endgame” and the final game of the match starts at 4 PM.
