Nisipeanu vs Radjabov, 2010 30 Nb5-d6! based on 31 Qe3xe5+, 32 Qe5xRd6

  offramp: Whenever I hear the name Nisipeaunu I think of Issi Noho.
Jul-05-13  geniokov: If White plays 30.Nd6,instead of 30..Red8,i will play 30..Re7! 31.Qxe5+ Rg7!(creating a counterattack at g3 pawn!)Bishop is immune of 32.Qxe6 because of 32..Qxg3+!That Radjabov´s<30..Red8> is somewhat a passive move for me!Although the table is in White´s turn! He has many good moves here.
Jul-05-13  geniokov: Either 30.Nd6 or 30.Qxe5 is good for White!With this move,it will really consume your time thinking "Which comes first?" A cluster of variations will give interest even for patzers!

  agb2002: White has a knight for a bishop.

White can take advantage of the weak spot e5 to find a better position for the knight with 30.Nd6:

A) 30... Rxd6 31.Qxe5+ Qg7 32.Qxd6 Rg8 33.Rg2 + - [R+P vs B].

B) 30... Ree7 31.Qxe5+ Rg7 32.Rg2 followed by cxd5 + - [N+2P vs B].

C) 30... Rg8 31.Qxe5+

C.1) 31... Rdg7 32.Rg2 Qg6 (32... Bd7(f7) 33.Nf7#) 33.cxd5 + - [N+2P vs B].

C.2) 31... Rgg7 32.Rg2 Re7 33.cxd5 + - [N+2P vs B].

C.3) 31... Qg7 32.cxd5 Rxd6 33.dxe6 (33.Qxd6 Qxg3+ 34.Kh1 Qg1#) 33... Rxe6 34.Qxg7+ Rxg7 35.Rd5 wins a second pawn and should win the endgame.

Jul-05-13  M.Hassan: "Difficult"
White to play 30.?
Equal materials.

<if...Rxd6 31.Qxe5+ and picks up the Rook next>

31.Qxe5+ Qg7
32.cxd5 Rxd6
<Hoping that 33.Qxd6 and free Black Queen from the pin and if it is freed, White will be mate by: 33....Qxg3+ 34.Kh1 Qg1#>

33.dxe6 Rxe6
34.Qxg7 Kxg7
And another Black pawn will fall. White should win the game. Time to check

Jul-05-13  geniokov: <agb2002:B) 30... Ree7 31.Qxe5+ Rg7 32.Rg2 followed by cxd5 + - [N+2P vs B].> Hi! This line caught my interest if Black can create a possible counterattack? After 32.Rg2 Bf8 33.cxd5 Rde7 taking the e-file from White,followed by Re3 or Re1? Any ideas?
Jul-05-13  geniokov: I knew that Black is lost but my point is if he can still give a fighting game till the last breath!
Jul-05-13  Steve.Patzer: I do not see why 34. ...Rf8 was not played.
Jul-05-13  geniokov: Another move that caught my interest is the paradoxical response like <30.Nd6 exf4!?>
Jul-05-13  geniokov: Or probably <30.Nd6 d4!?>
Jul-05-13  geniokov: It doesn´t mean that someone should "react" when he was under treat by a move <30.Nd6> Sometimes we have to response and answer things by throwing back like "counter-react?" Giving an opponent a question to choose things by himself!Any attempt by White such as <Qe5+> will be covered by a move like Rg7,still having a tempo to attack his opponent!

  whiteshark: Missed 30.Nd6 completely. Chess blind flight...
Jul-05-13  TomOhio: Every once in a while, I run into one of these in which I have absolutely no idea what is going on. That would be this one.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sastre: 32.Qxe6 Rxd6 33.Rxd5 Rxe6 34.Rxd8+ Qg8 35.Rxg8+ was also possible.
Jul-05-13  TimothyLucasJaeger: I found 30 ♘d6, planning

a) 30 ... ♖ed8 31 ♕xe5+ ♕g7 32 ♕xe6 ♖xd6 33 ♕xf5, which while not as pretty as Nisipeanu's 32 c5 creating the dominant knight vs bishop, should be enough for the win i think


b) 30 ... ♖ee7 i went wrong with 31 ♘c8, thinking rook moves could be met with 32 ♘b6 followed by ♕xe5+ and cxd5, however black has 32 ... d4 so doesn't work

  Marmot PFL: 30 Qxe5+ looks good enough too. Black's position is terrible.
Jul-05-13  newzild: <Marmot PFL> I almost went for 30. Qxe5+ myself, but then I spotted the following:

30. Qxe5+ Rg7

(Threatening 31...Qxg3+)

31. Rd3


32. Qxd5 Re2

And Black's counterplay is dangerous.

Black could also try 31. Rg2 instead of 31. Rd3, but then Black later has 32...Re3.
