Lo más destacado

Copa de Europa de Clubes. Socar Azerbaiyán una vez más comenzó como favorito en la prueba, pero el equipo ruso de Siberia apenas era un poco más débil. En el encuentro decisivo, Kramnik aseguró un punto importante contra Topalov. Vladimir ha comentado esta partida clave para ChessBase Magazine. Hay más comentarios a cargo de Bartel, Gormally, Krasenkow, Meulders, Mokal, Pavlovic, Postny, Roiz, Shah, Stohl, Swiercz y Szabo.

Copa del Mundo. Una vez más el torneo del KO deparó partidas muy entretenidas y también algunas de grandísimo nivel. En la final entre rusos, Sergej Karjakin venció a Peter Svidler. Uno de los héroes del torneo fue Pavel Eljanov. El autor de ChessBase eliminó, por ejemplo, nada menos que a Grischuk, Jakovenko y Nakamura y consiguió ganar más de 30 puntos Elo. El ucraniano ha analizado para nosotros su victoria contra el norteamericano. También encontrará en el DVD comentarios de Edouard, Ftacnik, Havasi, Krasenkow, Marin, Mokal, Pavlovic, Roiz, Sethuraman, Stohl, Szabo y Wagner. Se incluyen también 17 resúmenes diarios a cargo de Daniel King.

Informes de aperturas

Marin: English Opening A15
Nf3 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.b3 Bg7 4.Bb2 0-0 5.g3 d6 6.Bg2 e5 7.d3


In the form of the double fianchetto Mihail Marin presents a setup against the King’s Indian – but without d2-d4. The Nb1 remains for the time being on its starting square and can be developed, according to choice, to d2 or c3. White has the more pleasant game.

Sagar Shah: Modern Defence B06
1.e4 g6 2.d4 
Bg7 3.Nc3 d5


The pawn sacrifice 3...d5 is mostly only a temporary one and will probably surprise most players of the white pieces. Sagar Shah has investigated the variation in depth and at some points suggests improvements for Black’s play.

Souleidis: Caro-Kann B13
1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.exd5 cxd5 4.c4 
Nf6 5.Nc3 Nc6 6.Bf4


Vassily Ivanchuk has tried 6.Bf4 several times and in doing so drawn the attention of Georgios Souleidis to this subject. Black should become active quickly in order to take advantage of White’s lag in development. The fact that the most frequently played moves for Black do not equalise gives White some hope.

Ris: Sicilian Defence B20
1.e4 c5 2.b4 cxb4 3.a3


The Wing Gambit is hardly a focal point for top level play, but amongst amateur players it is a weapon to be feared. From the position in the diagram Robert Ris analyses mainly 3...d5 and 3...e5 and comes to some surprising conclusions.

Szabo: Sicilian Defence B51
1.e4 c5 2.
Nf3 d6 3.Bb5+ Nd7 4.0-0 Ngf6 5.Re1 a6 6.Bd3


The variation with 3.Bb5+ continues to be very popular both in elite level chess and among amateur players and for the moment 3...Nd7 is the most popular reply. The setup investigated by Krisztian Szabo should suit those players who prefer to proceed along positional lines.

Moskalenko: French Defence C12
1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.
Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Bb4 5.e5 h6


In his latest article French specialist Viktor Moskalenko provides insights into the McCutcheon Variation which is at present in transition. His subject is the retreat of the white bishop to c1, which White can carry out immediately or else beginning with 6.Bd2.

Breutigam: Vienna Game C29
1.e4 e5 2.
Nc3 Nf6 3.f4 d5 4.fxe5 Nxe4


The Vienna Game with 3.f4 is only extremely rarely seen nowadays in the games of stronger players. But there are also good reasons for that. Martin Breutigam gets to the bottom of things in his accustomed meticulous manner.

Rotstein: Philidor Defence C41
1.e4 e5 2.
Nf3 d6 3.d4 exd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 Be7 6.g3


The Fianchetto Variation is at the top of the popularity stakes nowadays. The fact that in the starting position Black has several plans available to him makes the whole business interesting for the second player. According to Arkadij Rotstein he should, however, reckon on White gaining an advantage.

Stohl: Catalan Opening E05
1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.g3 Be7 5.Bg2 0-0 6.0-0 dxc4 7.Qc2 a6 8.a4 Bd7 9.Qxc4 Bc6 10.Bg5


Of late the trend in the Open Catalan has again been towards 10.Bg5. Igor Stohl deals systematically with the alternatives for Black. White often possesses long-lasting pressure without having to run any great risk.

Kuzmin: King's Indian E97
Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.Be2 0-0 6.Nf3 e5 7.0-0 Nc6 8.d5 Ne7 9.a4


The move 9.a4 looks a little anti-positional, allowing as it does a hole to be created on b4. But after 9...a5, which is the almost obligatory reply for Black, according to Alexey Kuzmin Black cannot prevent b2-b4 and White obtains play on the queenside.
