  whiteshark: Zur Info:

Ist die Bundesliga die stärkste Schachliga der Welt?

<Ja!> Keine andere Liga der Welt kann mit 130 Großmeistern aufwarten. Die gemittelte Elozahl der jeweils ersten acht lag in der Saison 2007/08 bei 2580. Der Mittelwert der tatsächlich eingesetzten Spieler lag bei 2527 Elo. Nominell stärker besetzt ist nur die Russische Mannschaftsmeisterschaft, in der mehr als ein halbes Dutzend Mannschaften gemittelt über 2600 Elo an die sechs Bretter bringen. Doch dabei handelt es sich nicht um eine Liga mit einer Saison und mehreren Terminen, sondern um ein in einem Rutsch ausgetragenes Rundenturnier.

  whiteshark: Bacrot has won his game vs. Fressinet with a nice ♔walk to h6. Scores now level at 3.5 all.

Last game is (a drawish rook ending) Adams vs Efimenko, position after <57...Rg8>:

<Old But Deadly Poison
By Mig on March 28, 2009 14:35 | Permalink | 0 comments Tags: Anand, Bundesliga, Najdorf, Stellwagen

Lull or no lull, the Bundesliga is still on and world champ Vishy Anand just showed Stellwagen that his surprising use of the Najdorf Poisoned Pawn against Grischuk in Linares last month wasn't a one-off. The Dutchman went for 13.Bb5, which in some lines is little more than a spectacular forced draw -- one of many in the PP. (Shabalov-Areshchenko 2006 is typical of the breed.) <<<But Anand gave up his queen right off in a sideline that goes back to 1968 and both sides played to win. A wild game ensued with White pinning hopes on his passed h-pawn and Black generating threats and hoping to keep his king safe long enough to use his material advantage. Wonderful chess. Vishy won the day,>>> but it's wasn't as one-sided as you might think. PGN after the jump. Svidler beat Nikolic, who missed class the day discovered attacks were covered. Ouch.

I have to agree with Mig.

How can a GM play moves like 18 ... ♘c6-e5?? and 30 ... ♗b2-e5??, which lose material to elementary <DISCOVERED ATTACKS>?

18 ... ♘c6-e5??

30 ... ♗b2-e5??

And then Nikolic crowns his "tactical masterpiece" with the howler 35 ... ♖d8xd6??, trying to exploit White's <WEAK BACK RANK>. Unfortunately for Black his terribly exposed Black g8-king makes a great <SECOND TARGET> for a <DOUBLE ATTACK>, 36 ♕e3-g3+ 1-0.

35 ... ♖d8xd6?? <weak back rank?>

36 ♕e3-g3+ <double attack>

One of the worst tactically played games I have *ever* seen by a GM. You would think Nikolic was a 1200-rated player by the simple tactics he overlooked in this game.

Anand's Black c8-bishop did not leave its home square until move 47(!!!!), 47 ... ♗c8-f5+, yet Anand still won!
