Kibitzer's Corner
< Earlier Kibitzing  · PAGE 26 OF 26 ·  Later Kibitzing>
Dec-28-08  percyblakeney: <What happens if Radjabov takes his king to b4?>

He can't defend d4 and c6 at the same time as the king goes to b4 so this is a draw as long as Grischuk just avoids doing something.

Dec-28-08  Hesam7: <pb: He can't defend d4 and c6 at the same time as the king goes to b4 so this is a draw as long as Grischuk just avoids doing something.>

why does he have to defend c6 ? Btw during most of the king march Ke5-e6-d7-c7-b6-c5-b4 the c6 pawn is protected by the king.

Dec-28-08  visayanbraindoctor: <Hesam7: What happens if Radjabov takes his king to b4? Defending a4 & c4 should not be that pleasant.>

An option could be: after an exchange of center pawns, Grischuk could plant his King on e4 and Bishop on b5. The a4 pawn will then be defended, as with the d3 square.

Dec-28-08  percyblakeney: <why does he have to defend c6 ?>

I was thinking about a Bd7 from white when the king is on c5, otherwise white can just place the king on d3 and the bishop on c2 and everything is covered.

Dec-28-08  visayanbraindoctor: <Btw during most of the king march Ke5-e6-d7-c7-b6-c5-b4 the c6 pawn is protected by the king.>

Assuming there is no central pawn exchange, Grischuk could plant his King on d3 or b3. Then move his Bishop to squares that protect his a4 pawn if his King is on d3. But Radja should probably try it though, just to see what happens.

Dec-28-08  Hesam7: <vbd: Assuming there is no central pawn exchange>

I think Black can make sure that there are no pawn exchanges in the center.

At any rate from Radjabov's point of view there is no down side to playing as he runs no risk of losing and if he wins he will be sole winner.

Dec-28-08  visayanbraindoctor: Bacrot has managed to exchange all major and minor pieces except Queens with Chepa a pawn up. This could be a long game. Chepa will have to try to advance his Kingside pawns while protecting his King from perpetuals. Bacrot will have to guard against a forced Queen exchange, while defending against a Kingside pawn advance and looking for a perpetual.
Dec-28-08  Karpova: According to Rybka 3, Inarkiev messed up and it's +3.12/d14

Source: http://www.chessok.com/broadcast/?k...

Dec-28-08  visayanbraindoctor: Eljanov and Inarkiev seem to be playing rather loosely in time trouble. Inarkiev had a small advantage considering White's isolated d pawn. Then Eljanov tried a direct attack with 29. f4, and Inarkiev just seemed to collapse. Now Eljanov has a big advantage.
Dec-28-08  visayanbraindoctor: Eljanov looks to be in a winning position after the time scramble. Inarkiev must be mentally kicking himself for squandering away a nice position. If Eljanov does not win this one, then it would be him kicking himself.
Dec-28-08  Marmot PFL: all it means is that eljanov won't be last
Dec-28-08  Karpova: Grischuk-Radjabov 1/2
Dec-28-08  Karpova: If Bacrot find 51...c5 it's 0.00/d22 according to Rybka 3: http://www.chessok.com/broadcast/?k...
Dec-28-08  znprdx: so are there tie break rules or a playoff?
Dec-28-08  Karpova: <4.6 Tie breaks for each tournament:

As prizes and GP ranking points are shared equally, in cases of any tied position/s. No tie break system will be utilised for the individual GP tournaments. The process of determining the overall winner of the series, in the case of a tie, is defined in Article 7.2>

http://grandprix.fide.com/regulatio...

Dec-28-08  visayanbraindoctor: <Karpova: If Bacrot find 51...c5 it's 0.00> Bacrot is about to get his perpetual. I hate trying to win open Queen endings. Too many possible checks, forced repetitions, and the Queens could land just about anywhere. It's hard to calculate all of them without missing anything.
Dec-28-08  Karpova: All games are over:

Cheparinov-Bacrot 1/2
Eljanov-Inarkieb 1-0

Dec-28-08  shintaro go: Congratulations to Jakovenko for remaining undefeated throughout the tournament.
Dec-29-08  percyblakeney: Jakovenko had a very good tournament and maybe also a touch of luck to share first since both Grischuk and Radjabov lost a game each from winning positions in time trouble, while Leko threw away the win against Jako himself.
Dec-29-08  ahmadov: It indeed was a great tournament, I could not follow all the games though... Congrats to all the winners!
