Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-13-07  Ryan Razo: If 6. bxc3 then d4 then it would transpose to the Modern Gruenfeld, Exchange variation

  Domdaniel: Which is why this line -- 1.c4 Nf6 2.Nc3 g6 3.Nf3 d5, or 3.g3 d5 -- is generally known as the Grünfeld-English. There are usually a few points where a White d4 transposes to a Grünfeld proper.

Just as the Grünfeld itself has recently become more popular than the King's Indian, this defensive system against the English is also seen more frequently.

  Domdaniel: 22.Rd6! also wins, as pointed out by Dan King and Ronan Bennett in their chess column in the Guardian. If the exchange sacrifice is taken, White wins by force in a few moves -- 22.Rd6 Bxd6 23.exd6 Rc8 24.d7 and black can resign. Not accepting the rook is only a little better -- 22.Rd6 Ne7 23.Rxb6, winning a key pawn (but maybe allowing Black a little more wriggle room than he gets in the Andersson line).

Most strong players would play 22.Rd6 without hesitation. Yet Andersson's subtle winning idea may actually be stronger -- the King joins in the attack, wins the b-pawn, and once the c-pawn falls White will have an unstoppable pair of connected passed pawns.

As an experiment, I let Fritz chew over the position at move 22 -- it immediately found the force of 22.Rd6! At first, Andersson's 22.Bxc6 languished far behind, in 5th place, behind such silly moves as 22.Bf1.

But the deeper it went, the more it saw of Ulf's plan. By 22-ply or so, 22.Bxc6 caught up, and the optimal continuation given followed the moves of the game right to the end. Including details such as 24.Rd7! - exchanging one pair of Rooks so the King can penetrate safely - and 27.Rd7!, not grabbing the b6 pawn too hastily because 27.Kxb6 Rb8+ allows some counterplay.

Very Ulf, very beautiful finish. Carlsen is now showing the same kind of inexorable patience.
