  Eyal: From Shipov's live commentary to the game:

<1.e4 e5 I was hoping to see an interesting duel in the French defense. Apparently, Kamsky successfully raspugal all duelyantov confident victory over Ivanchukom in the last round of the Olympiad in Dresden.

11 ... Ne7 New! Morozevich threatens planned attack on the King's flank. An h2-h3 may be weakening, if a black horse occupies item f4. At the same time Moscow is once again the fire themselves. Desertion horse to combat the post is like using a blow d3-d4 ...

12.Na3 When black elephant at c5 (not b6, when the protection would remain a pawn b5) course looks strange. We must think to understand his idea ... Long did not have to think! The point is that this is the shortest way to e3. But the standard Spanish route b1-d2-f1-e3 little longer, as a further momentum in the course of Rf1-e1. However, the progress of useful! A horse with f1 can go both on e3, and on the g3. The decision Kamsky could not immediately call the best. [At 12.d4 black could play 12 ... Bb6!, Bearing in mind that the destruction and e5 pawns e4 them acceptable. That is to 13.dxe5 be 13 ... Nxe4! With the same game.]

12 ... Ng6 13.Nc2 Everyone is busy with his / her work. It does not interfere with anyone. But how to proceed? Leap Ng6-f4 while nehorosh because razmena Bc1xf4!, Which gives white a clear advantage due to better peshechnoy structure

15 ... c6 Item d5 covered, as an intrusion on f5 Morozevish apparently not considered dangerous.

16.Nh2 Gat consistently avoids even the slightest complications [16.Nf5], trying to do extremely thin maneuvers. Progress in the party, it will arrange access for the queen royal flank. Field g4 become a reference point for many white horses ...

16 ... Kh8 next move to smooth over the intentions clear - attack on the flank of the King! F7 pawn is now free to go to the front.

17.Nhg4 Standard pirouette Spanish horse. In the case of razmena on g4 be white pawn, which will be a perfect base for a horse on f5.

17 ... Nxg4?! Played very risky. It seems that Morozevich ready for everything to "pull" the opponent to the complications. [Nothing prevented answer the troop attack simetrichno: 17 ... Nf4!]

18.hxg4 structure changes for the benefit of whites.

18 ... Qh4 That's the idea of Moscow - it is introducing queen closer to the white king, which should fidget ...

19.d4 Indeed begin aggravation. Gat trims elephant b6 from the Royal flank. [Of course, if 19.g3 black queen is not to retreat -- 19 ... Qh3!]

19 ... exd4?! Yes what is? An assignment for the assignment Morozevich, as thirsty for water, tends to live figured the game. Tired of the soldiers sitting in the trenches! [I and the third time would be played 19...Be6 ]

20.cxd4 White has a beautiful center, but figured he lacked support.

20 ... Qf6 Here is everything and it turned out. Apparently, Alexander felt that the pressure on d4 would enable him to weaken the structure of the opponent. ... Considered but not proschitalsya right?

21.Nf5 simple and powerful response! The horse and on foot protection, and terrorizing the enemy. Exchange on f5 gives White an additional momentum for the attack. In my opinion, a black problem. [Clearly worse 21.d5 c5! Through C5 and C4-black will be a dangerous initiative.]>

  Eyal: <21 ... Kg8 wrong recognition of their cause. The game came to a standstill black - have to bear the defensive, conceding space and mobility figures. [It seems that in its preliminary calculations Morozevich had planned to play here 21 ... Bxf5 22.exf5 Bxd4, but close to the case observed the terrible forces of reaction 23.g5! hxg5 24.Qh5 + Kg8 25.Qxg6 over the figure in white. In fact, even stronger 25.fxg6!]

22.Be3 Center strengthened. White has a very comfortable game. A clear advantage .... "Heavy fog descended on the west of China." During the party, I listen to news and behold - uhvatil phrase well suitable to the events in the party.

22 ... Bxf5 hate terminator at his home is impossible.

23.gxf5 But now whites are powerful peshechnuyu mass, ready to move. And further - an advantage of two elephants.

24.Bc2 quickly played. Kamsky prevents erosion d6-d5, ready to meet his stroke e4-e5! And when peshke on d6, it is quite relevant.

24 ... Rfd8 best protection against the threat. [Lose, for example, 24 ... c5 25.e5! dxe5 26.dxe5 Qxe5 27.Bg5!]

25.b4 Another very strong progress. The black position is very unpleasant. All attempts to escape lead to defeat. A passive game will likely only extend road to death. Here's to you and "old man"! He plays a very powerful and specific.

25 ... c5 This is the steepest course I meant by the term "attempt to escape." However, it is necessary to closely watch the options. Maybe there is salvation from the black hole?

26.bxc5 go right road, comrades!

26 ... dxc5 White pawns in the center no longer obstacles. We must tread! No matter how I try, I can not find acceptable to the fans Morozevicha option. I have nothing to comfort you, friends. Without the assistance of the Kama is not indispensable.

27 ... Rxd4 most stubborn. [ 27 ... cxd4 28.e5! Qxe5 (28...Qc6 29.f6) 29.Bxh6 Qf6 30.Bg5]

28.Bxd4 Qxd4 A black would be good compensation for the quality, if it was time to consolidate power. But White vigorous action to hold the initiative in their hands.

29.Qg3 A battle rook b8.

29 ... Nc6 [On 29 ... Rd8 also should 30.e5!]

30.e5! Crucial move. Elephant c2 becomes strong atakerom, a white pawn hovering over the black king. Salvation is not in sight.

30 ... c4 afraid too late. Morozevich desperate counterattacks, trying to create at least some flares.

31.Rad1 Qb2 32.f6 White always one step ahead.

32 ... g5 [Bad and 32 ... g6 33.Rd2! (With the threat of Bxg6, thus allowing for counter-f2) 33 ... Kf8 34.Qh4 h5 35.Qf4 Qb4 36.Qh6 + Ke8 37.e6! And the black king dies.]

33.Re2 Tsgrozhaet jump elephant C2 on h7.

33 ... Qb4 34.Qh3! The latest blow. Through h6 or f5 white queen comes to h7.

BLACK surrendered. Convincing victory Kama! Frankly, Morozevich is all wrong. He obviously underestimated the opponent, passed the center, has provoked great white complications and literally forced Kamsky attack. American grandmaster very strongly held the end, not giving the opponent a single chance ... > (http://translate.google.com/transla...)

Jan-19-09  Jafar219: Morozevich played like patzer.
Jan-19-09  AuN1: very disapointing play from black throughout; i was just looking over some of his games yesterday, and i find it difficult to believe that it is the same player.
Jan-19-09  ughaibu: Great notes Eyal, thanks.

  messachess: This is kind of a bad loss for Moro.--Like he was bored with having to play Kamsky or something. Kamsky didn't really have to play all that well to win.
Jan-19-09  dehanne: <Elephant c2 becomes strong atakerom, a white pawn hovering over the black king.> Gotta love Babelfish.
Jan-19-09  whiskeyrebel: Perhaps he won't be bored the next time he has to play him.
Jan-19-09  shintaro go: This is not good for Moro's confidence.

Kamsky,G (2725) - Morozevich,A (2771) [C78]
Corus A Wijk aan Zee NED (3), 19.01.2009
[Rybka 3 Human 32-bit (30s)]

C78: Ruy Lopez: Archangelsk and Möller Defences C78: Ruy Lopez: Archangelsk and Möller Defences I used Deep Rybka 3 in analysis mode to find the errors and good moves in this game. 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 The Ruy Lopez opening. 3...a6 Morphy's idea forcing Kamsky to make a decision about his bishop,exchange it off on c6, or retreat it. 4.Ba4 Nf6 Not only developing another piece, but also attacking the unprotected white e-pawn. 5.0-0 b5 Forcing the bishop back again, using a counterthrust. [Analysis:The most popular move for Black is 5...Be7 with play following this course: 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 d6 8.c3 0-0 9.h3 Na5 10.Bc2 c5] 6.Bb3 Bc5 Aggressively developing his bishop,where it attacks the White c-pawn. 7.c3 The most popular move in this position, allowing him to retreat his bishop to c2 if Morozevich plays ...Na5. 7...d6 Reinforcing his e-pawn and allowing for the development of his light-squared bishop. 8.a4 Threatening 9.axb5 winning a pawn. [Analysis:The main line is: 8.d4 Bb6 9.h3 Bb7 10.Re1 0-0 11.Bg5 h6 12.Bh4 Re8 13.d5 Nb8] 8...Rb8 The most often played move in this position, breaking the pin against his a-pawn, which would allow him to regain his pawn if Kamsky were to play 9.axb5 with the move 9...axb5. 9.axb5 [Analysis:The main line is: 9.d4 Bb6 10.Na3 0-0 11.axb5 axb5 12.Nxb5 Bg4 13.Re1 Bxf3 14.gxf3 Nh5 15.Kh1 exd4 16.Nxd4 Nxd4 17.cxd4 c5] 9...axb5 10.d3 Preventing Morozevich from capturing the White e-pawn with his knight, and allowing him to develop his dark-squared bishop. 10...0-0 11.h3 Kamsky spends a tempo to prevent his opponent from playing 11...Bg4.

Feb-03-09  Albertan: 11...Ne7N According to the Chessbase online database, this move is a theoretical novelty.Morozevich intends to move the knight to g6 where it defends his king. [Prior to this game, these moves had been tried in this position by the player of the black pieces:(a) 11...h6 ; (b) 11...Bb6 ; and (c) 11...Bd7 ] 12.Na3 Developing another minor piece, and intending 13.Nc2 [Analysis:Deep Rybka 3:(a) 12.Bg5 Ng6 13.Nh4 Nxh4 14.Bxh4 Be6 15.Nd2 b4 16.Qc2 bxc3 17.bxc3 Qe7=; (b)Another idea Kamsky might have considered is to play 12.d4, with a possible continuation being: 12.d4 Bb6 13.Re1 Bb7 14.Na3 exd4 15.Nxd4 Nxe4 16.Bc2 d5 17.Naxb5 Qd7 18.Qe2 f5= (Analysis of Deep Rybka 3)] 12...Ng6 [Analysis:Deep Rybka 3: 12...h6 13.Nc2 Bb7 14.Ba2 Ra8 15.b4 Bb6 16.Be3 c6 17.Qe2 Ng6 18.Bb3 Qc7=] 13.Nc2 Kamsky intends to transfer the knight to the e3-square.
