Jul-29-13  notyetagm: Naiditsch vs D Andreikin, 2013

Wow is Andeikin sucking, <+0 -3 =1>, and his 1/2-point was a draw by repetition with White in like 15 moves that *he* initiated.

Jul-29-13  csmath: Nice win, good calculation by Naiditch (although without any risks) and very poor game by Andreikin.

The move 10. Qc1 is new computer move (obviously Naiditch prepares with chess engine) The main kick is that white expects g5 and is ready to "sacrifice" the piece. This is the variation Andreikin obviously does not know and fails to see that over the board.

He refuses the "sacrifice" but that leads him into strategically lost position.

This is clearly the game won in the opening for which Andreikin has not been prepared, was ambushed, and played poorly over the board. No surprise to me.

Jul-29-13  csmath: There is another hidden mine after the "sacrifice" if properly played but it is not dramatic and will be figured out. In either case Naiditch used computer novelty for a nice win.

YERMOLINKSY: "10 Qd1-c1!? truly is a remarkable move. Great job of either preparation or possibly at the board I don't know ..."

<csmath: There is another hidden mine after the "sacrifice" if properly played but it is not dramatic and will be figured out. In either case Naiditch used computer novelty for a nice win.>

Yes, GM Yermolinsky at ICC *raved* about Naiditsch's novelty 10 ♕d1-c1!.

Jul-30-13  Ulhumbrus: Is it necessary for Black to offer his h6 pawn by 15...f5? On 15..Nxc3 16 bxc3 Qe6 defends it
Jul-30-13  csmath: <Yes, GM Yermolinsky at ICC *raved* about Naiditsch's novelty 10 d1-c1!.>

This is a computer move and has been played by the engine already. Naiditsch knows that, Andreikin does not. It was clearly a surprise to him since he played rather lousy after that

The whole line is bullit proof for white (I mean safe) and black has to play carefully not to lose. The main variation is to run Ra8-Rb8 with threat Rb5 as to force white to take knight on f6 and exchange the queens after which the game is even.

Over the board defence is a rope walk and yields nothing but a draw so I think you won't see 4. ...Bc5 again on the top level. Back to Nf6 and Be7 Ruy Lopez standards is more likely.

I think this was in the bottle with Naiditsch for a while. Andreikin did not play 4. Bc5 before so it was not prepared for him specially but it is rather one of those moves that is prepared with computer and then waited for the right time to uncork.

  perfidious: All those silly emoticons by the human commentator as he goes on about how poorly a 2700-plus GM played.

One day, I should like to see <csmath> in action at the board against one of these top grandmasters, sans computer.

Any bets on whether his skills would be able to back up his mouth?

Jul-30-13  csmath: <"10 Qd1-c1!? truly is a remarkable move. Great job of either preparation or possibly at the board I don't know ...">

It has been played by engine.
This is one of those "hammer in the head moves" that computer engine would play against humans. Engines defend this easily without sweat. But players like Andreikin fall apart as soon it is played. His reaction is typical and bad. This also tells you how good a defender Andreikin is. Exactly as expected and Naiditch got upper hand easily.

It tells you also that Naiditsch prepares openings with computer and keeps these tricks for tournament use. I knew that so it is no surprise to me. :-) You gotta be careful playing sidelines against Naiditsch.

Jul-30-13  notyetagm: Naiditsch vs D Andreikin, 2013

<csmath: ... You gotta be careful playing sidelines against Naiditsch.>

Yes, Yermolinsky said that Naiditsch is an *extremely* well-prepared and aggressive 1 e4 player.

Jul-30-13  csmath: Some of the available databases are computer GT books, you can also buy expanded computer engine books online. I have couple and I have this move in Rybka GT book meaning it has been played by engine against engine. But it is not anything more than a draw. Nevertheless the move is very unpleasant for a human player.

Naiditsh is obviously familiar with engine books. The sideline tricks are generally what you can find there since the top elite GMs usually do not play these stuff. Andreikin did and it costed him the game.

Jul-30-13  csmath: In Ruy Lopez you do not ordinarily play Bc5 if you played a6 since it is clear that white is inclined to play c3 and d4 to create vent for bishop on a4 and to get the center initiative. In particular because of pin on f6.

Obviosly it is possible to play 4. ... Bc5 but it is a sideline and not a great move. You are basically allowing white to play d4 with a tempo.

This game is a classical example why this is not a good idea since it completely opens black king and turns the game into a tactical play. Naiditsh loves tactical chess so you are on his territory. That is clearly a bad idea.

Yes, if you can make your opponent play the kind of game that *you* want to play, the game is already half won.

  sbevan: Partially to quote GM Naiditsch's conclusion, in his anlysis of this game:

"...but it seems that strangely enough the line is good for Black!"
