Apr-07-06  AlexandraThess: Another great game by the legendary Ulf!Unfortunately this time a greek player suffered.

  Mateo: Another masterpiece ending for the swedish Capablanca. I think the game is lost after 44... Bc6?, but it was not easy to foresee.

45. Bc6 Nc6 46. Nc3 Nb4 (all the same after 46... Ne7 47. h5 Ke6 48. Ke2 , zugswang.) 47. h5 Ke6 48. Ke2! .

(If 48... d5 49. ed Nd5 50. Nd5 Kd5 51. Kd3 K moves 52. e4 .)

48... Kd7 49. Nd5! Nd5

(only move. If 49... Kc6 50. Ne7 )

50. cd . The point is that :

White has the pawn break e4, unstoppable. Then White has a passed pawn, which tieds the Black King. Meanwhile, Black cannot create a passed pawn, and White goes to pick those queen side pawns. Quod demonstrandum erat.

Apr-08-06  Mazettakos: I have to disagree with you 2! The "legendary" Ulf plays even more boring chess now he has got older. Yannis had a totally equal ending, but unfortunately he had the bad inspiration to seek the plan with b6,c5 and then exchange the lightsquared bishops which leads to a lost pawn ending. Ok maybe he had time pressure and playing with a GM is a kind of psychological pressure, but if just he moved his pieces around the "legendary" Ulf would be happy with a draw against a player who has a rating 300 points lower than him!

  Mateo: <Mazettakos> I agree with you. Andersson got nothing. But I was just talking about the position arising from the trade of Bishops. I like Andersson's art of getting something out of nothing, setting sound traps in drawish endings to his opponents. He won so many games in this way. This is another one.
