{Sorry for the delay in posting - I needed a day to recover from the
excitement of the World Youth Chess Olympiad! Speaking of that tournament,
let's have a look at some of the interesting games played in Chongqing. I've
included quite a few games by the Indian team as they won the event!} 1. c4 c6
2. Nf3 d5 3. e3 {In my view this is one of White's better Anti-Slav systems;
White might transpose to a Slav system with d4 later, as he did in the game,
or avoid d4 in favour of moves like b3, Bb2 and Be2, or even a kingside attack
with g4-g5.} Nf6 4. Nc3 e6 5. Qc2 a6 (5... Nbd7 {is more common, getting the
pieces out.}) 6. d4 c5 {The reason Black is willing to spend two moves on ...
c5 is because White's queen is not wonderfully placed on c2 in this pawn
structure. Regular readers might remember the game from the Gelfand-Anand
match where White got absolutely nothing from the opening.} 7. dxc5 (7. cxd5
exd5 8. Be2 Nc6 {is the main line.}) 7... Bxc5 8. b3 $5 (8. a3 {with the idea
of b4 is White's main continuation, though after} dxc4 9. Bxc4 b5 10. Bd3 Nbd7
{the position is too symmetrical to be anything other than equal.}) 8... Nc6 9.
Be2 d4 $5 {With this well-timed break in the centre Black makes use of his
central majority and tries to immediately solve all his problems.} (9... O-O
10. O-O dxc4 11. bxc4 Qc7 {should also be solid for Black.}) 10. exd4 Nxd4 11.
Nxd4 Bxd4 12. O-O O-O 13. Bb2 e5 {This position might seem quiet and equal,
but actually White is better here as his pawn majority is a bit more active
and it is easy for his pieces to find good squares.} 14. Rad1 (14. Bf3 {was
possibly even better, to try and stop Black developing his c8-bishop.}) 14...
Qe7 15. Bf3 Be6 16. Ne4 $1 Nxe4 17. Bxe4 Bxb2 18. Qxb2 {The exchanges have not
fully neutralised White's light pressure - his bishop is a bit more active (on
the long diagonal) and he is the first to occupy the d-file.} f6 19. Rd2 (19.
Qc3 Rad8 20. Qa5 {is another approach, trying to fix the b-pawn in place and
increase the pressure with Qb6. And if} Rxd1 21. Rxd1 f5 22. Bd5 {keeps the
advantage.}) 19... Rad8 20. Rfd1 b5 $1 {Black rightly breaks out and tries to
create counterplay, and quite successfully at that.} 21. cxb5 axb5 22. h3 (22.
a4 bxa4 23. bxa4 {might have been better, when the passed a-pawn gives White
some chances. Black can't advance his majority easily without weakening his
king.}) 22... b4 $1 {This strong move fixes White's majority, and the position
is equal, but White managed to outplay his opponent.} 23. Qc2 g6 24. Bd5 Bxd5
25. Rxd5 Kh8 (25... Rxd5 26. Rxd5 Rb8 27. Qc6 Rb7 {, depriving the White
pieces of any entry points or targets, would maintain the balance.}) 26. Rxd8
Rxd8 27. Rxd8+ Qxd8 28. Qc5 Qb8 29. a4 bxa3 30. Qxa3 {This position is already
very difficult for Black as White is the only side with a passed pawn and his
king is safer - both very important factors in queen endgames.} Kg8 31. b4 Qb5
32. Qa5 Qc4 33. Qb6 e4 $2 (33... Qc1+ 34. Kh2 Kf7 {might still have hung on.})
34. Kh2 Qc8 35. b5 Qf5 36. Qb8+ Kf7 37. b6 Qxf2 38. Qc7+ 1-0[/pgn]

{In our next game, one of the Russian players demonstrates how to win against
the Catalan.} 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. g3 d5 4. Bg2 Bb4+ 5. Bd2 Be7 {The idea of
this variation (as opposed to the immediate 4...Be7) is to argue that White's
extra move Bd2 is harmful (e.g. by depriving White of b3/Bb2 or Nd2). In
practice it normally makes little difference.} 6. Nf3 O-O 7. O-O c6 {Black
sets up the same 'Slav' formation as in the previous game, and the d5
strongpoint helps stop White's bishop from getting active. A standard plan
here would be to play for the e4 break, but the d2-bishop rather gets in the
way of that.} 8. Qc2 b6 9. Bf4 (9. Nc3 {prepares e4 but Black might now grab a
pawn with} dxc4 {when} 10. Rad1 Nbd7 11. e4 Bb7 {offers White typical Catalan
compensation for the pawn with a strong centre and more active pieces, but
it's hard to say if there's enough play for an advantage.}) 9... Bb7 10. Rd1 {
This is a good place for the rook as the black queen will eventually have to
move to dodge any d-file tactics (the position will open up sooner or later!).}
Nbd7 11. Nc3 (11. Nbd2 Nh5 12. Be3 f5 {would give Black a decent Stonewall
position.}) 11... dxc4 12. Ne5 {This isn't a common move in this position, but
it just transposes to} (12. Nd2 Nd5 13. Nxc4 {.}) 12... Nd5 13. Nxc4 Nxf4 14.
gxf4 {The doubled f-pawns are kind of useful here, as the d4 and f4 pawns stop
an ...e5 break and after e3 nearly all of White's pawns will be on the
opposite colour squares to White's remaining bishop. White can play this
position without taking much risk but objectively it's approximately equal.}
Nf6 ({A number of games from this position have continued} 14... Qc7 15. e3
Rad8 16. Rac1 c5 17. d5 exd5 18. Nxd5 Bxd5 19. Rxd5 b5 20. Ne5 Nxe5 21. Rxe5
Bd6 22. Rd5 Be7 {followed by a repetition of moves with 23.Re5 Bd6 etc, but as
Black is the higher-rated player he tries something a bit more enterprising.})
15. Ne5 Nd5 16. f5 $6 {This isn't a great idea as Black will be able to
exploit the weak dark squares left behind.} (16. Rac1 {is typical of the
patient approach White should adopt in the Catalan; note that} Nxf4 17. Bxc6
Bxc6 18. Nxc6 Qd7 19. Qe4 {keeps a small initiative with the c6-knight likely
to be reinforced on its outpost with b4-b5.}) 16... Bd6 17. Nxd5 $6 (17. Ne4 {
was probably a better try.}) 17... cxd5 18. fxe6 fxe6 {White has problems with
the safety of his king.} 19. Rd3 Rc8 (19... Bxe5 20. dxe5 Rf5 {would simply
pick up the e5-pawn for free.}) 20. Qd2 Qh4 21. Rg3 Rc7 22. Rf1 Bxe5 23. dxe5
Qf4 24. Qxf4 Rxf4 {This endgame is unpleasant for White due to his passive
pieces and weak pawns, and Black mops up fairly efficiently.} 25. Ra3 a5 26.
Rc3 (26. Rb3 {was a better try, at least combining active play with the
defence of the queenside pawns.}) 26... Rxc3 27. bxc3 b5 28. Rb1 Bc6 29. e3 Rc4
{White can't hold with pawns this weak.} 30. Bh3 Kf7 31. Rb3 g5 32. f4 a4 33.
Rb4 Rxc3 34. fxg5 Rxe3 35. Rf4+ Ke7 36. Rh4 Rxe5 37. Rxh7+ Kd6 38. Rg7 b4 {Not
only is Black a pawn up, but his passed pawns are much faster too.} 39. Bf1 b3
40. axb3 axb3 41. Bd3 b2 42. Kf2 Bb5 43. Bh7 Re4 0-1[/pgn]

{Our next game demonstrates an interesting way of combating the Taimanov,
though the later part of the game resembles a French Defence more than a
Sicilian!} 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 e6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nc6 5. Nc3 Qc7 6. f4 (6. Ndb5
Qb8 {isn't scary for Black who can kick the advanced knight back with ...a6
next move.}) 6... a6 7. Nxc6 Qxc6 (7... bxc6 {recaptures toward the centre,
but White might stop Black setting up a nice pawn centre with} 8. e5 $5 d5 9.
exd6 Bxd6 10. Ne4 {when White has scored well in practice though the computer
thinks it's equal.}) 8. Bd3 b5 9. Qe2 Bb7 10. Bd2 Be7 (10... Bc5 {would
represent Black's ideal 'Taimanov' system with quite nice bishops. After} 11.
O-O-O Ne7 12. a3 O-O {the position would be quite complex with White and Black
racing to checkmate the opposing king.}) 11. a3 {The idea of this move is to
keep the knight on the strong c3-square (by preventing Black's ...b4). Black
can't easily reinstate ...b4 as ...a5 will drop the b5-pawn.} Rc8 12. O-O Nf6
13. e5 {This move gives Black's knight the e5-square but also provides e4 for
White's knight. If White doesn't play this Black might reach a good
Scheveningen position with ...d6.} Nd5 14. Ne4 f5 (14... O-O 15. Rae1 f5 16.
exf6 Nxf6 {transposes to the game.}) 15. exf6 Nxf6 16. Ng5 O-O 17. Rae1 {This
position should be easier for White to play as Black's hanging pawns on d7 and
e6 aren't easy to advance and despite having a strong b7/c6 battery, Black
struggles to find a target in White's camp.} Bc5+ 18. Kh1 Bd4 19. Bc1 (19. Bb4
Bc5 20. Bc3 {was a more active alternative, continuing to fight for the
central dark squares.}) 19... Rfe8 20. c3 Ba7 21. Qc2 {Provoking a weakness in
Black's kingside pawn shelter.} g6 22. Be3 Bxe3 23. Rxe3 {Now White's
advantage is fairly stable, as Black has one extra pawn island and not much
counterplay. White will follow with Nf3-d4 or Ne5 to start occupying the
central dark squares.} Kg7 24. Rg3 Nh5 25. Rh3 Nf6 26. Nf3 (26. Nxh7 $1 Nxh7
27. Rg3 $1 {and Bxg6 is very good for White; White was perhaps too distracted
by the positional advantages in his position to appreciate the strength of a
direct attack on the king.}) 26... d6 27. Nh4 $1 {White doesn't miss the
second opportunity to sacrifice on g6. Black has to really weaken himself to
stop the mating attack.} Ne4 28. Re3 d5 29. Nf3 {Now the position looks very
much like a French Defence, does it not? This is why it's useful to study
openings other than the ones you play.} Rf8 30. Nd4 (30. Ne5 {was a better
square for the knight. White might then take on e4 to reach a good knight vs.
dodgy bishop position.}) 30... Qd6 31. Ref3 Rf6 32. Qe2 Rcf8 33. Qe3 e5 34.
fxe5 Qxe5 35. Rxf6 Rxf6 36. Rxf6 Qxf6 37. Nf3 Qe7 {Black is okay in this
position (White shouldn't have let Black get in e5 earlier), but White goes on
to win in a well-executed grind.} 38. Qd4+ {...Ng3 was threatened.} Qf6 39. Qe3
Qe7 40. Kg1 h6 41. Kf1 Ng3+ 42. Kf2 Ne4+ 43. Ke2 Bc8 $6 {This should have been
avoided, but it is understandable that Black was unhappy about his
light-squared bishop being so passive.} (43... Kh7 {was preferable.}) 44. Qd4+
Kh7 45. Qe5 Qxe5 46. Nxe5 {This endgame is probably winning for White, simply
because all of his pieces are much more actively placed.} Kg7 47. Ke3 Kf6 48.
Kd4 Bb7 49. Nd7+ Ke7 50. Nc5 Nxc5 51. Kxc5 d4 52. cxd4 Bxg2 53. Bxg6 Bf1 54. b4
Kd7 55. Kb6 Kd6 56. Kxa6 Kd5 57. Be8 Kxd4 58. Bxb5 Bg2 59. Bd7 Kc3 60. Kb5 Bf1+

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. c3 Nf6 5. d3 {As I pointed out in a previous
blog post, this 'Modern Italian' system is quite decent if you want to reach
Ruy Lopez type positions with only a small percentage of the theory.} O-O 6. b4
Bb6 7. a4 (7. b5 Na5 8. Nxe5 d5 9. exd5 Re8 {would punish White for his greed.}
) 7... a6 8. a5 Ba7 {I'm not convinced that the queenside expansion helps
White as Black normally plays ...a6 and ...Ba7 in this line anyway. At least
in my game against Ahmed in the 2012 Olympiad I came to regret these b4/a4
advances.} 9. Bg5 h6 10. Bh4 {Generally Bg5 is a good response to ...0-0 as
now ...g5 will weaken Black's king.} d6 11. Nbd2 Be6 (11... g5 12. Nxg5 $1 hxg5
13. Bxg5 Kg7 14. Qf3 {gives White a very strong attack for his piece.}) 12. O-O
Qe7 13. Qe2 {We can see that Black's standard break in this position - ...d5 -
is a lot harder to achieve, and therefore White has a tiny advantage with his
extra space.} Bxc4 14. Nxc4 Qe6 15. Bxf6 $1 {A strong decision, before Black
can equalise in the centre with ...d5. Also Black will now be a little bit
vulnerable on the central light squares.} Qxf6 16. Rab1 Nd8 17. b5 {Since the
d4 break is hard to achieve, White starts queenside play.} Bc5 $6 {I don't
understand what Black was thinking with this move.} (17... axb5 18. Rxb5 Qe7 {
is a fairly obvious continuation, keeping a structurally sound position. The
knight on d8 nullifies all of White's pressure down the b-file.}) 18. b6 c6 19.
Rbd1 (19. d4 $1 exd4 20. cxd4 Bxd4 21. Nxd4 Qxd4 22. Rfd1 Qc5 23. Nxd6 {was
extremely strong, as Black's pieces are now completely tied up by the
d6-knight.}) 19... Ne6 20. Qb2 Rfd8 $2 (20... Rfe8 {was actually okay for
Black, because of} 21. d4 $6 exd4 22. cxd4 Nxd4 $1 23. Nxd4 Rxe4 24. Nxc6 Rxc4
25. Qxf6 gxf6 26. Ne7+ Kh7 27. Nd5 Kg7 {and Black is better with an extra pawn
in the kitty.}) 21. Kh1 (21. d4 {seems very obvious; perhaps the moves were
keyed in wrongly?}) 21... Rac8 22. Rd2 Ng5 23. Nxg5 Qxg5 24. d4 exd4 25. cxd4
d5 $1 {White's d4 break was a bit too slow as now this central counter-attack
guarantees counterplay.} 26. Ne3 (26. dxc5 dxc4 {only helps Black.}) 26... Bf8
27. exd5 cxd5 28. Rc2 {This position should still be about equal. White has a
slight initiative now but if too many pieces are exchanged Black will be able
to pick off White's pawns on the dark squares with his bishop.} Bd6 29. g3 Qe7
30. Kg1 Rxc2 31. Qxc2 Qe4 32. Qb3 h5 ({Sitting with} 32... Kf8 {would have
kept roughly level chances.}) 33. h4 Bb8 34. Re1 Qf3 (34... Qxd4 35. Nf5 Qf6
36. Ne7+ Kh7 37. Nxd5 Qf5 {keeps material level, but doesn't change the status
quo greatly.}) 35. Qc2 (35. Qd1 $1 Qxd1 36. Rxd1 {gives White a good ending as
the b8-bishop is trapped (...Bd6 hangs the d5-pawn).}) 35... Re8 36. Ng2 $5 {
White is happy with a Q+N vs. Q+B position, especially as the b8-bishop will
take some moves to get into play.} (36. Qe2 {still looked good though.}) 36...
Rd8 $2 (36... Rxe1+ 37. Nxe1 Qg4 {was still necessary - White will have to
defend his d4-pawn and keep his king safe so Black should be okay.}) 37. Re7 {
Rook on the 7th rank = money in the bank! (e.g. the b7-pawn)} Bd6 38. Rxb7 Re8
39. Rd7 Re2 40. Rd8+ Bf8 41. Qxe2 $1 {A nice finish.} Qxe2 42. b7 Qd1+ 43. Kh2

{If you're wondering why there are more White wins in this sample of games
than usual, this can be explained with some information about these team
tournaments. The scoring system is on match points (meaning 2 points for
winning the match overall, 1 point for a 2-2 match, and 0 points for a lost
match overall). Therefore winning with 2.5-1.5 garners as many match points as
a 4-0 result. As a result the teams will normally try to hold their games on
the Black boards and press for a win on the White boards. Of course this
strategy might vary depending on the situation on each board.} 1. c4 e5 2. g3 {
White follows in the footsteps of Mihail Marin's 'GM Repertoire' series on the
English.} d6 3. Bg2 f5 {This setup isn't a main line, but it is quite playable.
Black will normally develop with ...Nf6, ...Be7 and ...0-0 and treat the
position like a Dutch Defence with an extra tempo (as Black normally has to
play ...e6 then ...e5). In the game Black prefers a King's Indian approach.} 4.
d3 Nf6 5. Nc3 g6 6. Nf3 Bg7 7. O-O h6 $6 {This move isn't necessary, and Black
should have castled.} ({I should note that after} 7... O-O 8. Rb1 {Black isn't
forced to play ...Nc6 and might also consider a setup with ...c6 and
eventually ...d5, constructing a 'clamp' in the centre.}) 8. Rb1 O-O 9. b4 Nc6
10. b5 Ne7 11. Nd2 {This move might seem strange to a non-English player but
it's a standard way to unleash the g2-bishop so that ...d5 or ...Be6 aren't on
the cards. Also the knight may reenter the game after the mini-plan of Ba3, c5
and Nc4.} g5 12. Ba3 ({Charging the a-pawn up the board with} 12. a4 {is more
common, but in the game this square proves useful for White's pieces.}) 12...
f4 {The important lesson to take from this game is that Black's 'Mar del
Plata' kingside attack doesn't work well when White plays the English - the
g2-bishop guards the king very well against any offensive. It's better to
respond with central play based on a ...d5 break.} 13. c5 Kh8 14. cxd6 cxd6 15.
Qa4 (15. Nc4 {immediately was also not bad. In any event the d6-pawn will be a
constant weakness in need of defence.}) 15... Nf5 16. Nc4 Rf7 17. b6 $1 {White
fixes the b7-pawn as a weakness. While the c8-bishop is stuck defending it,
the a8-rook will be out of play.} a6 18. e4 (18. Nd5 Nxd5 19. Bxd5 {might have
been good as well, stopping Black from getting a ...d5 move in, not that it
should really hassle White.}) 18... fxe3 19. fxe3 {Black's main problem is
that White has all of his pieces in the game in a fairly open position, while
Black still hasn't developed his queenside. When considered from this
perspective it's not surprising that White is already winning.} Bf8 20. Nd5 Rb8
