Anand lider en Zúrich, recupera la confianza

El ex campeón mundial Vishy Anand, recupera el buen humor tras un fatídico comienzo de año en Gibraltar, donde no fueron nada bien las cosas, perdiendo una buena “saca” de ELO que le hizo bajar del TOP TEN y lo que es peor, anímicamente muy tocado.

Pero esto paso a la historia, el “Tigre de Madrás” esta espectacular en Zúrich, donde ha “tumbado” a dos de sus rivales en el próximo torneo de candidatos, Aronian y Giri, en dos partidas donde el indio exhibió su mejor juego.

En la ronda 1 se deshizo de Levon Aronian con facilidad pasmosa, creando una miniatura de 19 movimientos, ahí es nada.

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 Nf6 4. Nc3 {The four knights is a surprisingly
unpopular version of avoiding the Berlin, mainly due to the fact that Black
has plenty of options that supposedly give him an acceptable game.} Bd6 {
ultra solid. The point is that the bishop will retreat to f8 eventually or
move to c5 when e5 is properly defended.} 5. O-O O-O 6. d3 Re8 7. a3 {I can't
find any super-high level example of this move, though I suppose it does make
sense to clear up a2 for the bishop in case it needs it.} h6 8. Bc4 Bc5 9. Be3
Bxe3 10. fxe3 d6 {In this position Black's rook would rather be on f8. White
has a couple of extra tempi, but somehow I feel Black is solid enough to be ok.
} 11. Nh4 Be6 12. Nf5 Bxc4 $6 {Even though it is natural to break up the
structure, Black's position is so underdeveloped and the pressure on the
kingside is mounting at such an alarming rate that this trade may already be
too ambitious.} (12... Nb8 {immediately was probably a safer choice}) 13. dxc4
Kh7 $2 (13... Re6 {trying to hold on to the kingside, was been better.}) 14.
Qf3 $1 {Anand smells blood!} (14. Nd5 {was also good enough for a big
initiative, but it was not as accurate.}) 14... Nb8 {With the idea of
solidifying the kingside with Nb8-d7. But this is too late.} (14... Ng8 {
is a sad move to make, but might have already been necessary. After} 15. c5 {
clearly White stands better.} (15. Qg3 $5)) 15. Nxh6 $1 Kxh6 (15... gxh6 16.
Qxf6 Qxf6 17. Rxf6 Kg7 18. Raf1 {is hopeless. White is too active and has an
extra pawn.}) 16. Qh3+ Kg6 (16... Nh5 17. Rxf7 (17. g4 {are both winning
easily.})) 17. Rf3 {not the only winning move, actually, but the most exact.
White threatens Rg3+ or Qf5+ and Rh3.} Nh5 18. Rf5 Nf6 19. Qh4 {Black gets
mated next move.} 1-0

En la ronda 2, el afectado en este caso fue Giri, que sucumbió al campeón que recupera la sonrisa, y las buenas vibraciones de cara a la gran cita del año.

28. Qc4 Rbe8 29. Rc1 Rf7 {The position is relatively level. Black's strong
knight on b4 has a comfortable outpost, but White enjoys more space and some
pressure against c7.} 30. Nd2 Ref8 31. f4 $6 (31. Rf1 {should keep the balance,
but Giri gets too ambitious.}) 31... e5 $1 {The Dutch player must have
underestimated this move. White has no good way of dealing with this break.}
32. Nf3 (32. fxe5 d5 33. exd5 (33. Qe2 Rf2+ 34. Qxf2 Rxf2+ 35. Kxf2 Qxd4 {
is also very bad.}) 33... Rf2+ 34. Kh1 Rxd2 {is an extra piece for Black.}) (
32. dxe5 Qxe3 {is impossible.}) (32. f5 exd4 $17) 32... exf4 33. gxf4 d5 $1 34.
exd5 Qd6 $1 {Black is in no hurry: with the powerful blockade over the d5 pawn
and the weakness on f4 he is almost winning, the king on g2 is too exposed.}

Anand!} 0-1
