El ex campeón mundial de ajedrez Viswanathan Anand no necesitó mucho tiempo para olvidar su terrible comienzo de año en Gibraltar y con dos victorias, ante dos de sus grandes rivales en el Candidatos, Aronian y Giri, se sitúa como líder en Zúrich.

El novedoso ritmo de juego (40 minutos con 10 segundos de incremento por jugada) y la cercanía del torneo de Candidatos ha dado lugar a algunas partidas algo distintas de los habituales. Esquivando líneas trilladas y con menos precisión de la que permite el tener tiempo se desarrolló la primera ronda del Zürich Chess Challenger destacando Vishy Anand como primer líder tras lograr dos victorias, ante Aronian y Giri ¡siendo la primera de ellas en tan sólo 19 movimientos!

Zúrich D2: Anand gana dos partidas

13/02/2016 – El “Tigre de Madrás” ha tenido un arranque excelente. Comenzó la jornada derrotando a Aronian en 19 movimientos y a continuación se apuntó otra victoria aprovechándose de la ambición desmesurada de Giri. Nakamura va a poca distancia porque empató con Giri y venció a Shirov. Gelfand derrotó a Morozevich en el duelo de exhibición que disputaron hoy. (Foto: David Llada) La segunda jornada… Comentar

danger and tries to change the landscape.} 23. g4 $1 {Weakning the kingside

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 Nf6 4. Nc3 {The four knights is a surprisingly
unpopular version of avoiding the Berlin, mainly due to the fact that Black
has plenty of options that supposedly give him an acceptable game.} Bd6 {
ultra solid. The point is that the bishop will retreat to f8 eventually or
move to c5 when e5 is properly defended.} 5. O-O O-O 6. d3 Re8 7. a3 {I can't
find any super-high level example of this move, though I suppose it does make
sense to clear up a2 for the bishop in case it needs it.} h6 8. Bc4 Bc5 9. Be3
Bxe3 10. fxe3 d6 {In this position Black's rook would rather be on f8. White
has a couple of extra tempi, but somehow I feel Black is solid enough to be ok.
} 11. Nh4 Be6 12. Nf5 Bxc4 $6 {Even though it is natural to break up the
structure, Black's position is so underdeveloped and the pressure on the
kingside is mounting at such an alarming rate that this trade may already be
too ambitious.} (12... Nb8 {immediately was probably a safer choice}) 13. dxc4
Kh7 $2 (13... Re6 {trying to hold on to the kingside, was been better.}) 14.
Qf3 $1 {Anand smells blood!} (14. Nd5 {was also good enough for a big
initiative, but it was not as accurate.}) 14... Nb8 {With the idea of
solidifying the kingside with Nb8-d7. But this is too late.} (14... Ng8 {
is a sad move to make, but might have already been necessary. After} 15. c5 {
clearly White stands better.} (15. Qg3 $5)) 15. Nxh6 $1 Kxh6 (15... gxh6 16.
Qxf6 Qxf6 17. Rxf6 Kg7 18. Raf1 {is hopeless. White is too active and has an
extra pawn.}) 16. Qh3+ Kg6 (16... Nh5 17. Rxf7 (17. g4 {are both winning
easily.})) 17. Rf3 {not the only winning move, actually, but the most exact.
White threatens Rg3+ or Qf5+ and Rh3.} Nh5 18. Rf5 Nf6 19. Qh4 {Black gets
mated next move.} 1-0

1. e4 e6 {It's unusual to see Nakamura play a French...} 2. d4 d5 3. e5 {
Though most French players will tell you that if they know white will play 3.
e5 for sure, they would play the French all day every day!} c5 4. c3 Nc6 5. Nf3
Qb6 6. a3 Nh6 7. b4 {I've never beelieved in the lines that involve Bxh6
against the French, even though the great advance French expert, Grischuk,
used it against Caruana kind of recently. (In a blitz game, in which he lost!).

2014 Dubai Blitz WCH}) 11... h5 12. g3 h4 13. g4 Be7 14. Be2 f6 {Pretty
typical French stuff. Black has the pair of bishops and is fighting to break
open the center.} 15. b5 Nd8 {Making way for f7. The knight has plenty of
potential from there.} (15... Na5 $5) (15... Nxd4 16. Qxd4 Qxd4 17. Nxd4 fxe5 {
is a bit too optimistic, but not suicidal by any means.}) 16. Qd3 Rg7 17. Nc3

Why castle into it?} (18. exf6 Bxf6 19. Qe3 $15) 18... h5 (18... fxe5 19. Nxe5

important.}) 19. Na4 Qd8 20. exf6 Bxf6 21. Nc5 hxg4 22. hxg4 b6 (22... Rxg4+

position.} 34. a4 (34. f3 $11) 34... Rf7 35. f3 Rf4 36. Rxc5 $4 {This move is
so hard to understand. Perhaps Shirov thought he had adequare counterplay with
his passed pawns?} bxc5 37. a5 h3+ (37... Rb4 {is also totally winning...
Black is just up the exchange.}) 38. Kg3 $2 h2 39. Kxh2 Qh6+ 40. Kg2 Rxg4+ {
