It is known that young, talented players give much more importance to the opening than the experienced. The second you understand that in the beginning it is very rare to solve the game. The know nothings have virtually none at a high level, and the party settled mainly due to errors in the middlegame (at current control is rarely what party comes to the endgame). That young know the theory is a fact, but they often do not understand what is actually the case in a positional sense, and any left-hand rotation for them threatens to become a real disaster. Even if these young people are the representatives of the world’s elite.
(88) Naiditsch,A (2660) – Carlsen,M (2645) [C57]
37th Olympiad, Turin ITA (12), 2006
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4
A couple of weeks ago at the meeting of the same rivals in Sarajevo was a Spanish (3. Bb5 a6 4. Bc6 dc 5.0-0 Ne7 ), where Carlsen managed miraculously to go for a draw. Naiditsch complained after the game that forgot their analyses in the line of 2 knights, where would he small “smacked”. And so the opportunity came up…
3…Nf6 4. Ng5 d5 5. exd5 b5!? The characters don’t know. Some GM (Sermak) consider that it just loses.
Here they both ended theory. Naiditsch quickly made the next move and was very happy. But he didn’t know what was Morozevich played 10 years ago.
7.Ne6? Now well 7.Nxf7, or simply 7.Nf3 Qxd5 8.Nc3 Qe6 9.Nxb5 Qe7 10.d4 e4 11.Ne5 Nxe5 12.dxe5 Qxe5 13.Be3 Bc5 14.Bd4 gives white a comfortable advantage, as played by the great David Bronstein in 1984 Forom.
7…fxe6 8.dxc6 Bc5 9.d3?
Morozevich felt the danger and played here
9.d4! Bxd4 10.Bd3 give back the pawn, but evolved.
9…0–0 10.Be3 Bxe3 11.fxe3 Qd6 12.Nd2 Qxc6 13.e4 Qc5 14.Nb3 Qb6
White technical problems with castling.
15.Qe2 Bd7 16.g3 Long castling dangerous because of the rapid attack pawns а7-а5-а4-а3.
16…a5 17.Bh3 a4 18.Nd2 a3 19.b3 Be8 20.Qf2
White sacrifices a pawn after exchanging on f2 and impact on e4 for consolidation. Black don’t go for this option.
20… Qc6 21.0–0 Bh5 22.Qe3 Bg4! 23.Bg2 It was better to take 23.Bxg4!?, and the check on с5 is not very dangerous for white.
23…Qxc2 24.Rfc1 Qb2 25.h3 Rad8!
There is already an obvious advantage for black.
26.Rab1 Qxa2 27.Ra1 Qb2 28.Rab1 Qa2 29.Ra1 Qb2 30.Rab1 Qd4!
31.Qxd4 Rxd4 32.hxg4 Rxd3 33.Nf1 Ra8!
It is necessary to use the pawn on а3.
34.Rxc7 a2 35. Ra1 Rxb3 36. Rc2 Rba3 37. Rb2 R8a5 38. Nd2 Nxg4 39. Nb3 R5a4 40. Bh3 h5 41. Bxg4 hxg4 42. Nd2 Rxg3+ 43. Kf2 Rga3 44. Rxb5 Kf7 45. Ke2 Kf6 46. Kd1 Rh3 47. Kc2 g3 48. Rb3 Kg5 49. Kb2 Kg4 50. Rc3 g2 51. Rcc1 Re3 52. Kc2 Kg3 53. Kb2 Kf2 54. Rc2 Re2 0–1
Where we used variants of hours of analysis with Fritz? Nowhere, and are unlikely to use them. I saw them with my own eyes and confidence in their correctness is not. Real analysis with Fritz is very important in the variation of the Najdorf. In all other openings have to play their “human” head and learn to play chess. Said so after the game Naiditsch.
