  Garech: Superb endgame from Dautov!

  plang: Dautov went 8.5-2.5 on 3rd board helping Germany to a 2nd place finish behind Russia. Winning a pawn with 11..bxc 12 bxc..Qb8 had been played before but looks very dangerous; Dautov's 11..Qc7 was new. 14 f4? was anti-positional and left White with a weak bishop but already it was clear that White had achieved no edge from the opening. 25 Nc6 aiming for queenside simplification would have been a tougher defense. 34 Nc4? would have lost to 34..Nxc4 35 bxc..gxf 36 exf..Bxf4!. 41 Kf2? was an inaccuracy; 41 Kf1 leaving the e1-h4 diagonal open for the bishop (so it could protect the h-pawn) was a better defense. 43 Be1?..Nc3 44 Nxa3..Ne2+ 45 Kf2..Nxf4 would have been winning for Black, Stohl considered 48 Ne5+? to be the decisive mistake; after the alternative 48 Be1..Nc3 49 Nxa3..Nxa2 50 Nc2..Nc1 51 Bxb4..Bd8 52 Na1..Ne2 53 Nc2..Ng1+ 54 Kg2..Nf3 Black would have had a slight advantage but a win would have been difficult. 56..Kb3? prolonged the game; 56..Kb1 would have been immediately decisive.
