Jobava,Ba (2695) - Neubauer,M (2465) Opening:Nimzo Indian Defense:Samisch variation ECO: [E29] 11th EICC Men Rijeka CRO (1), 06.03.2010
[Analyzed with Deep Rybka 3 for(120m)]

Baadur Jobava is a Grandmaster from the Republic of Georgia. Martin Neubauer his opponent is an International Master who is from Austria. 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 Jobava uses a queen's gambit pawn formation to start the game. 2...e6 Allowing him to complete the development of his kingside. 3.Nc3 Bb4 Neubauer is playing the Nimzo-Indian Defense. 4.a3 This move gives us the variation of the Nimzo-Indian being played,it is known as the Samisch variation.Named for Friedrich (Fritz) Sämisch (September 20, 1896, Charlottenburg – August 16, 1975, Berlin) who was a German chess grandmaster.Jobava forces Neubauer to decide the future of his dark-squared bishop in the game. 4...Bxc3+ The main line,giving Jobava the two bishops at the cost of damaging the white queenside pawn structure. 5.bxc3 c5 The most often played move for black in this position.Neubauer is willing to sacrifice a pawn. 6.e3 Supporting his attacked pawn and also opening up the diagonal so he can develop his light-squared bishop. 6...0-0 The most popular way of continuing the game for the second player. 7.Bd3 Developing a minor piece,which prevents his opponent from playing ....Ne4. 7...Nc6 Neubauer continues to develop his minor pieces.This move creates more pressure agaisnt Jobava's d-pawn. 8.Ne2 Developing another minor piece, which results in the overprotection of his d-pawn.In addition now Neubauer can no longer gain a tempo by playing ...Qa5. 8...b6 Neubauer plays this pawn advance to give support to his c-pawn, and in addition it allows him to develop his bishop to a6 in the future. 9.e4 Jobava gains more pressure against the d5-square, and opens up the c1-h6 diagonal which will allow him to develop his dark-squared bishop.He now also threatens to play 10.e5. 9...Ne8 The most popular way of continuing. Neubauer deals with the threat of 10.e5 by retreating his knight before it can be attacked.Now possibly he intends to play the move ....f7-f5. [Analysis:Deep Rybka 3: 9...d6 10.0-0 Bb7 11.f3 h6 12.Be3 Na5 13.Ng3 Qc7=] 10.0-0 The most popular move for the first player to play in this position according to my database. 10...Ba6 Developing another minor piece,which results in an attack against Jobava's pawn on c4.This ties down Jobava's bishop to defend his attacked pawn on c4. 11.Ng3 Jobava spends a tempo to move his knight off the e-file.In addition now his e-pawn is overprotected.In addition this knight move now prevents Neubauer from playing 12...f5. 11...Rc8 Centralizing his rook. [11...Na5 12.f4 Bxc4 13.Bxc4 Nxc4 14.f5 cxd4 15.cxd4 f6 16.Rf4 Qe7 17.Qh5 (17.Rh4 Rf7 18.Qh5 h6 19.Qg6 Kh8 20.e5 Rc8 21.Ne4 Nxe5 22.dxe5 exf5 23.Bxh6 gxh6 24.exf6 Nxf6 25.Qxh6+ Nh7 26.Nd6 Rg7 27.Nxc8 Qc5+ 28.Kh1 Qxc8 29.Rc1 Qa8 30.Qd2 Kg8 31.Qa2+ d5 Berczes,D (2514)-Csonka,A (2275)/Hungary 2009/EXT 2010/1-0 (40)) 17...exf5 18.Nxf5 Qf7 19.Qh3 Ned6 20.Nxd6 Nxd6 21.e5 Nc4 22.exf6 gxf6 23.Rh4 Kh8 24.Bf4 Rae8 25.Rf1 Rg8 26.Rh6 Berczes,D (2513)-Socko,B (2631)/Gibraltar 2009/CBM 128 Extra/1/2-1/2 (110)] 12.f4 Preparing to advance his e-pawn to e5. 12...f6!? Influencing the e5-square,at the cost of weakening the pawn structure in front of his king.

Apr-08-17  clement41: 34 Qe7+ looks strong, too.
This kind of diagonal move backward relative to the other queen and within her reach is rare. 34...Qxe7 (else it's #1) 35 de with the big threat, eg on 35...Nxc4??, of playing either 36 Bh6+ or 36 Rf8 Rxf8 37 Bh6+! And wins So 35... Re8 36 Bg5 protevting e7 and the manoeuver Rd2/xd7/ d8 is decisive

  Dionysius1: Those are two very nice themes <clement41>. The movement of the queen on the diagonal as it is attacked on to give check and force the better (overwhelmingly better) exchange than where it's been offered. And the use of a Bishop check on a defended square to lure the opponent away from a key square. Very nice!
