Kasparov y Short durante un análisis "postmortem"

Kasparov y Short durante un análisis “postmortem”

por Nadja Wittmann  27/04/2015 – Aunque se haya retirado del ajedrez activo hace más de diez años, Garry Kasparov sigue siendo un superhéroe del mundo de ajedrez. Lo acaba de demostrar de nuevo en su duelo contra Nigel Short en San Luis, EE.UU. a dos partidas rápidas y ocho de relámpago. Kasparov aplastó a Short 8,5-1,5, un resultado “humillante” para Short y desde luego un gran espectáculo para los espectadores y seguidores. Reportaje final tras la segunda jornada…

stopping the queen from coming to h2 was the only way to survive. This is

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 a6 {What a treat! The former
World Champion playing the defense he was so famoulsy feared for: the Najdorf
Sicilian.} 6. g3 {Not the most aggressive approach, maybe Short was taking a
page out of Adams' book, as he had beaten Giri only a couple of days ago with
this move.} e5 7. Nb3 Nbd7 8. a4 b6 9. Bg2 Bb7 10. O-O Be7 11. Re1 Rc8 12. Nd2
{Short goes for a maneuver that is not uncommon in this position. The knight
is rerouting to f1, e3 and finally it will land on the d5 square. There isn't
much Black can do about this, except to wait for the knight to occupy e4. Then,
as we will see, Kasparov can think of sacrificing the exchange} h5 $5 {Making
the king a little uncomfortable on the kingside. Short doesn't have to react
to the move, and he doesn't, but perhaps more prudent was to simply play 13.h4.
} 13. Nf1 h4 14. Ne3 g6 (14... hxg3 15. hxg3 Rxc3 16. bxc3 Nxe4 17. Nd5 Bxd5
18. Qxd5 {doesn't look like compensation at all. The knight cannot even take
on c3 in this position and Black has given up the important light squares.})
15. Re2 $6 {This move is simply inviting Black to sacrifice the exchange, and
I cannot believe that is not extremely powerful.} (15. Ned5 Nxd5 16. Nxd5 Bxd5
17. Qxd5 (17. exd5 $5) 17... Rxc2 18. Qd3 Qc8 19. Be3 {gives White some
compensation for the pawn, and at least retained active changes with the rook
coming into c1.}) 15... hxg3 16. hxg3 Rxc3 17. bxc3 Nxe4 18. Bb2 (18. Nd5 Bxd5
19. Qxd5 Nxc3 {is unplayable.}) 18... Ndf6 (18... Qc8 {was a bit more flexible,
but allows White to countersacrifice...} 19. Nd5 $1 f5 20. Rxe4 $1 {With a
very unclear situation.}) 19. c4 Qc8 $6 (19... Qa8 $5 {with possibilities of
Ng5 in the future. However Kasparov felt his queen was better placed on c8.})
20. Nd5 $1 Nxd5 21. cxd5 Ng5 $6 (21... Nc3 22. Bxc3 Qxc3 {still gives Black
some compensation.}) 22. c4 $1 {Short fighting back! The compensation in this
position doesn't seem clear. It's true that White has some issues with his
rooks and some weak pawns, but his king is not too badly posted and if he can
make Kasparov go in the defensive his extra material will tell.} a5 $1 {A nice
move. The point is that under some tactical scenarios Ba6xc4 is actually
possible, despite the pin down the c-file.} 23. Rc1 Ba6 24. Qb3 (24. Qd3 $1 Qg4
25. f4 $1 {is a way, way stronger version of the game, as the rook on e2 is
defended and White saved a tempo.}) 24... Qg4 25. Rcc2 Bc8 $1 {The bishop goes
back to a strong post on f5.} 26. f4 Nh3+ 27. Kf1 f6 28. Qf3 Qf5 {Of course,
Kasparov is in no mood to exchange queens!} 29. Re4 $6 {A very poor placement
for this rook. It defends f4, but there were better ways of doing so.} (29. Bc1
$1 $14) 29... Kf7 30. Rce2 Qg4 31. fxe5 $6 {Probably the worst way to go into
the endgame.} (31. Bc1 $14) 31... Qxf3+ 32. Bxf3 dxe5 33. Rh4 $2 {But this is
the real mistake.} (33. Rh2 Bf5 34. Kg2 Rh7 (34... Kg7 35. Re3 $14) 35. Re2 {
and only White can be better. Black is nowhere near as active as he was in the
game.}) 33... Rxh4 34. gxh4 Nf4 {now Black is coordinating too well. It's
important to also notice tht both sides were playing with seconds.} 35. Rd2 Bc5
36. d6 Bh3+ 37. Ke1 Bb4 38. Kd1 Bd7 $1 {Such precision with the clock ticking
down! The rook is not important; not yet. If White decides to save the
exchange he loses two pawns.} 39. Rh2 Bxa4+ 40. Kc1 Bxd6 41. Kb1 f5 42. Bc1 e4
$2 43. Bh1 $2 (43. Bxe4 fxe4 44. Bxf4 {would have completely changed things!
Black suddenly loses a very important pawn and Short holds the game!}) 43...
Nd3 44. Re2 Bd1 45. Rd2 Bb3 46. Rxd3 exd3 47. Bd5+ Kf6 48. Kb2 a4 {The pawn
difference is too big.} 49. Kc3 b5 50. Kxd3 Bxc4+ 51. Bxc4 bxc4+ 52. Kxc4 f4
53. Kd4 0-1
