中国和俄国国际象棋学派的争夺(二)China vs. Russia (2): Soviet chess technique by IM David Martínez

https://chess24.com/en/read/news/china-vs-russia-2-soviet-chess-technique

Is 16-year-old Vladislav Artemiev set to follow in the footsteps of Anatoly Karpov, Vladimir Kramnik and Mikhail Botvinnik? Spanish IM David Martínez continues his series looking at the Russian and Chinese schools of chess by examining three endgames in which the young Russian talent demonstrated extraordinarily good technique.

by IM David Martínez

Stay patient, create a weakness, fix it, then attack it. Classical concepts such as this one were at the heart of the Soviet School of Chess established by the Sixth World Champion, Mikhail Botvinnik. That “Soviet” technique attained its peak in the filigree technique of two later World Champions, Anatoly Karpov and Vladimir Kramnik, though of course it was also evident in Botvinnik’s contemporaries Vasily Smyslov and Tigran Petrosian.

We shouldn’t forget there’s also a lineage of dynamic players, exemplified by Alexander Alekhine, Mikhail Tal and Garry Kasparov, but the top young Russians led by Vladislav Artemiev and Aleksandra Goryachkina prefer a much more subtle and positional style of chess. Analysing their games – and we’re going to look at three involving Artemiev – you can’t help but feel the “Patriarch” – Botvinnik – would be very proud that his legacy has extended into the post-Soviet era.

Vladislav Artemiev: Making the difficult look easy

Artemiev exemplifies Botvinnik’s methodical technique. With the white pieces he prefers a calm game and normally plays queen’s pawn openings, not looking for any great theoretical complications. He aims for solidity and a microscopic edge in the opening, which he’s then willing to try and exploit for hours on end, usually with great success! With Black he also plays for a win, not shying away from complications but playing the highly theoretical Najdorf and Grünfeld.

Let’s take a look at three “difficult” games for Artemiev, all wins in classical chess against higher-rated grandmasters: Denis Khismatullin and Maxim Matlakov (twice). In all three encounters you can observe the same pattern: Vladislav shuns complications in the opening, plays quietly but then slowly but surely ups the pressure until his opponent goes wrong. Three true positional gems.

Artemiev, at the time still only an International Master, qualified for the 2015 World Cup by scoring 7.5/11 at this year's European Individual Championship, losing a single game to the eventual winner, Alexander Motylev.

Finally let's return to the European Championship, and the vital last round game against 23-year-old Matlakov. After a marathon 129-move effort Artemiev managed to accomplish his mission and qualify for the World Cup, while his opponent, who started the day on the same number of points, sank to 53rd place.

You can learn a lot from observing the methodical approach young Artemiev uses to win these endings. He’s clearly assimilated much of the Soviet and Russian heritage, but before his career’s over we might instead be looking to his games to discover the secrets of “Russian” chess!

As we’ll see in the next instalment, though, the Chinese school takes a completely different approach.

波士顿环球报:中国队获得国际象棋奥林匹克赛冠军

The world’s largest chess team championship in history came to a close this month. The final results of the 177 teams in the open and 133 teams in the women’s section were completely surprising. Team ratings would have suggested the Russians taking the open and the Chinese victorious in the women’s, but just the opposite resulted. The Chinese open team, consisting of Wang Yue, Ding Liren, Yue Yangyi, Ni Hua and Wei Yi, some of whom had hardly been heard of in the West, took the lead after defeating Azerbaijan in the eighth round and never relinquished it thereafter.

The exhausting schedule at Tromso, Norway, turned predictions on their head. None of the top-rated teams won medals. Gold, silver and bronze team medals went instead to China, Hungary, and India, respectively. Judit Polgar of Hungary earned the silver for reserve player. Strangely Polgar, probably the strongest female player in history, announced her retirement at the age of 38 possibly to focus on her family. India’s bronze was unusual as it was won without former world champion Viswanathan Anand and their No. 2 player, Pendyala Harikrishna.

In the last three rounds, the US team did not fare particularly well. In round 9 it defeated Argentina. Alas, the team fell to France in the 10th and lost to Azerbaijan in the last round, ending in 14th place. Its final score was 7-4 and finished out of the running for a medal. Sam Shankland, a recent Brandeis graduate, won as an alternate in the first round, stayed on the team, and kept winning in a blaze of victories, ending with a score of 9-1 and winning the gold for the fifth place alternate position. He had a performance rating of 2831.

In the ladies’ section, Russia had upended China in their match, took the lead and held it to the end. China received the silver, Ukraine, the bronze. The US finished in eighth place.

A sleeper was former world champion Veselin Topalov of Bulgaria who won the first board gold medal. Michael Adams of England got the silver; Anish Giri of the Netherlands won the bronze. We followed, as well, the fortunes of the world champion Magnus Carlsen, who ended with a score of 6-3. He had a draw with Tomi Nyback of Finland and Levon Aronian of Armenia and had losses against Arkadij Naiditsch of Germany and Ivan Saric of Croatia. He did not play the last round, possibly choosing to rest for the Sinquefield tournament to be held in St. Louis on Aug. 27-Sept. 7. He will compete against Hikaru Nakamura, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Aronian, Fabiano Caruana, and Topalov.

Hou Yifan Commands Respect 

by Arkadij Naiditsch 

Hou, Yifan (2629) – Giri, Anish (2750) 

Hans Suri Mem 2014 Biel SUI (1.3), 14.07.2014

Sicilian Defense [B51]

In the history of chess, only one woman has played on the highest level and this is Judit Polgar. At her best she even managed to enter the Top Ten. Hou Yifan, the current Women's World Champion and clearly the strongest female player after Polgar seems to do fine against men as well. Yifan is very close to entering the Top 100 and already proves this in the first round of Biel.

 

2012年直布罗陀公开赛侯逸凡胜小波 Hou Yifan beat 
瑞士比尔大赛首轮侯逸凡胜吉里 Hou Yifan won against Giri 

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bb5

This is a very popular move at the moment. There have always been a few Top GMs who liked 3.Bb5, but especially after the games of Carlsen this move came into fashion.

3...Nd7

And this is the most fighting reply for Black. The main line is clearly 3...Bd7 and now in the latest games White seems to push a bit after 4.c4!?, and strangely Black did not show a clear way to equalize so far.

4.d4

The most principled. White also has moves like 4.0-0 or 4.c3.

4...cxd4 5.Qxd4 a6

[FEN "r1bqkbnr/1p1npppp/p2p4/1B6/3QP3/

5N2/PPP2PPP/RNB1K2R w KQkq - 0 6"]

6.Be2!?

Quite an interesting and rare move. We would be in the main lines after 6.Bxd7 Bxd7 7.0-0 and now White's idea is usually connected with the c4 move.

6...Ngf6 7.0-0 e5

Giri is already planning a pawn sacrifice, which just looks too dangerous. The simple 7...e6 8.c4 b6 9.Nc3 Bb7 would lead us to hedgehog structures where the white queen is not so perfectly placed on d4. Anyhow, he might be in time to regroup and get some small plus.

8.Qe3 d5

It is clear that Black had planned the d5 move before playing e5.

9.exd5

Of course!

9...Bc5?

[FEN “r1bqk2r/1p1n1ppp/p4n2/2bPp3/8/

4QN2/PPP1BPPP/RNB2RK1 w kq - 0 10”]

It seems as if Giri does not take his opponent too seriously. There was no reason for Black to take such rushed actions. After 9...Nxd5 10.Qd3 N5f6, Black's position is maybe a bit worse, but White has nothing too spectacular.

10.Qd2!

The queen takes a perfect position on d2, not only to protect the d5-pawn, but as well to prepare the c4-b4 pawn pushes.

10...0-0 11.c4

So Black is a full pawn down and in case White will be in time to play something like b4-Nc3-Bb2 the game could already simply be over. Black needs to react very quickly here.

11...e4

This is probably the best try for Black, as at least the knight is going to take a great position on e5.

12.Nd4 Ne5

White's position is clearly better, but Black has many tricks; for example, connected with Nfg4-Qh4 or Qc7 with the idea of playing Ng4 next. White needs to be careful.

[FEN "r1bq1rk1/1p3ppp/p4n2/2bPn3/2PNp3/

8/PP1QBPPP/RNB2RK1 w - - 0 13"]

13.b4!

Another strong decision by Hou Yifan, the move in the game is much stronger than something like 13.Nc3. Now White will have the idea of playing c5-d6 to totally kill all of Black's hopes.

13...Ba7 14.Nc3 Bg4

Black continues to try and create some complications. Maybe a slightly better try to save the game could have been 14...Nd3 15.Nc2! (15.Bxd3 is premature since after 15...Bxd4 16.Be2 Be5 the black bishop on e5 gives Black some attacking chances.) 15...Nxc1 16.Raxc1 and of course White is a full pawn up and has a much better position, but Black's bishop-pair could give him some theoretical chances to survive the game.

15.c5!

[FEN “r2q1rk1/bp3ppp/p4n2/2PPn3/

1P1Np1b1/2N5/P2QBPPP/R1B2RK1 b - - 0 15”]

Another very good move by White based on an exact calculation. White is using the moment that the pawn on d5 can't be taken to get the bishop on a7 completely out of the game.

15...a5

15...Nxd5 didn't really help since after 16.Nxe4 White is just a clear pawn up.

16.a3

Of course the structure must be kept.

16...Nxd5

This is not the best move order. To get a better version Black should have played 16...Bb8 before taking on d5. Black is provoking the bishop to b2. 17.Bb2 Nxd5 18.Nxe4 Bxe2 Of course White is a clear pawn up, but Black might keep some fighting chances.

17.Nxe4 Bb8

And now we see the difference to 16...Bb8, White has another move to play rather than 18.Bb2.

18.f3

Hou Yifan is playing a perfect game. There is no reason for White to exchange the bishop on e2, which is controlling the knight e5.

18...Nf4?!

[FEN "rb1q1rk1/1p3ppp/8/p1P1n3/1P1NNnb1/

P4P2/3QB1PP/R1B2RK1 w - - 0 19"]

A mistake never comes alone. Giri makes another clear miscalculation, but I must admit that it is difficult to find a good move in a bad position. 18...Bh5 would lead to the same result as in the game, since after 19.Nf5 the threat of playing Qxd5 gives White enough time to put the knight to d6.

19.Nd6!

The last important move of the game. Black is losing material.

19...Bxd6

19...Nxe2 20.Qxe2 would lead to the same position as in the game via a different move order.

20.cxd6 Nxe2 21.Qxe2 Qxd6 22.Nb5

I guess this is the move Giri blundered.

22...Qf6

22...Qb6 didn't help since after 23.Be3 Black is losing the g4 bishop.

23.fxg4

The most simple. White has a big material advantage and the attack too!

23...Nf3 24.Qxf3 Qxa1

[FEN "r4rk1/1p3ppp/8/pN6/1P4P1/

P4Q2/6PP/q1B2RK1 w - - 0 25"]

25.Be3

Precision until the end. White wants to play Bc5 next, putting pressure on the f7-pawn. The game is totally over.

25...Qf6 26.Qxf6 gxf6 27.Nc7

The white knight is coming to d5.

27...Rac8

27...Rad8 28.Bh6 and the f8 rook has no squares.

28.Nd5 1-0

A great game by Hou Yifan who perfectly capitalized on the mistakes of her opponent. I guess with this win she gained a lot of respect from the top players, who will not try to play against her as with a little girl, sacrificing pawns for a doubtful initiative.

Late on Her Schoolwork? Well, She’s a Titan of Chess. 

侯逸凡夺冠一小时后纽约时报电话采访文章2013年9月20日:北大二年级学生,国际象棋女神。

By DYLAN LOEB McCLAIN
Published: September 20, 2013

By her own definition, 19-year-old Hou Yifan is an average student. She is a sophomore at Peking University, one of China’s top colleges, and says she constantly falls behind on her work.

But she has a better excuse than most: Ms. Hou is one of the greatest chess prodigies in history. She has been ranked among the top 10 women in the world since she was 12 and became a grandmaster, the game’s top title, when she was 14 years old — the 15th youngest on record.

On Friday, while most of her fellow students were in class, Ms. Hou was routing Anna Ushenina of Ukraine in the last game of their Women’s World Chess Championship match in Taizhou, China.
Ms. Hou won the match 5.5 to 1.5 to recapture the crown, which she lost last year in the early rounds of a championship tournament. Ms. Ushenina, who is now 28, won the tournament, and the title. Ms. Hou first won the crown in 2010 when she was 16, making her the youngest player, man or woman, to win a world title. She successfully defended the title in 2011.

This year, Ms. Hou was the heavy favorite. She went into the match ranked as the No. 2 female player in the world; Ms. Ushenina’s ranking was No. 17.
For her victory, Ms. Hou earned the equivalent of about $160,000, while Ms. Ushenina received the equivalent of about $106,000.

In a telephone interview in English an hour after the last game Friday, Ms. Hou said the match “wasn’t so easy, but it also was not so difficult.” Because of her schedule at the university and because she had recently played in another tournament, she said, she had had little time to prepare.

Born in Xinghua, China, Ms. Hou discovered the game when she was 3 and her father took her to a store where she saw a glass chess set in a window and began staring at it. Her father bought a set, and she soon began beating him, so he found her a chess tutor. By 2003, at age 9, she was a member of the Chinese national team.

Describing herself Friday as a full-time student, Ms. Hou said she did not receive any “special privileges” that allowed her to avoid fulfilling her course requirements. She also has to be in class most of the time, although she is allowed to leave for tournaments. Her travel schedule — she was recently in Norway and will soon go to Greece — is making her studies difficult, but she said she took her books with her.

Ms. Hou is well known in China, so when she enrolled last year at the university, some of the other students were “a bit surprised,” she said. But she said her fellow students had gotten used to having her there.

Asked why she was in the university at all, she said, “I am trying to really learn something” other than chess.

Now that the championship is over, she is going back to school before she competes in the European Club Cup next month. Before leaving, she has to cram for exams.

A version of this article appears in print on September 21, 2013, on page A4 of the New York edition with the headline: Late on Her Schoolwork? Well, She’s a Titan of Chess.

International chess super tournament dedicated to the memory of the great Russian chess player, fourth World chess champion A. A. Alekhine will take place in two biggest museums – the Louvre (Paris) and the Russian Museum (Saint-Petersburg).

The distinguished pianist has selected a programme of works for the Alekhine Memorial by Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff. Mr Lugansky believes there are a number of parallels between Rachmaninoff's career and the fate of Russia's first World Chess Champion.
