Magnus Karlsen pobednik 1. Memorijala Vugara Gašimova

U azerbejdžanskom gradu Šamkiru od 20. do 30. aprila održan je 1. Memorijal Vugara Gašimova, u znak sećanja na šahovskog asa sa slike koji je nakon teške bolesti preminuo u 27. godini života. Na "A" turniru, na kome su nastupili igrači iz najužeg svetskog vrha, trijumfovao je svetski šampion Magnus Karlsen. Konačan poredak bio je: 1. Karlsen 6,5 poena, 2. Karuana 5,5, 3-5. Nakamura, Radžabov, Karjakin 5, 6. Mameđarov 3. 

Karlsen je još jednom demonstrirao sposobnost da mobiliše svoje snage i pobedi odlučujuću partiju. U prvoj polovini turnira neočekivano je pretrpeo dva poraza zaredom, od Radžabova i Karuane, ali onda je napravio 4 poena iz 5 partija i tako opravdao ulogu glavnog favorita. Iz "Šahovske hronike" Gorana Tomića prenosim vam komentar veoma zanimljive partije iz poslednjeg kola, u kojoj je Karlsen hladnokrvno neutralisao neugodne pretnje Karuane. Ovakva atraktivna igra privlači ljubitelje šaha i drago mi je da su vrhunski velemajstori shvatili da takav turnir mora da se igra borbeno, za publiku i za njihovog pokojnog prijatelja.

1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 g6 3.g3 Bg7 4.Bg2 c5 5.c3 Somewhat passive, Black actually has a few ways of dealing with this variation. 5...d5 [5...cxd4 6.cxd4 d5 transposes to a well known Grunfeld variation, but one that I am not sure is to Caruana's liking. He prefers more open set-ups against the Fianchetto Grunfeld.] 6.dxc5!? [6.0–0 Nbd7=] 6...0–0 7.0–0 a5 The position is not yet new. 8.Be3 Nc6 Caruana plays for the compensation rather than trying to regain the pawn. This is risky, but with the tournament on the line - why not? [8...Ng4 9.Bd4 (9.Bd2 Na6 10.h3 Nf6 11.Be3 Qc7=; 9.Qc1 Nxe3 10.Qxe3 Nd7 11.Nbd2 e5©) 9...e5 10.h3 exd4 11.hxg4 dxc3 12.Nxc3 Na6 seems to be ok for Black as well.] 9.Na3 a4 White's pawn on c5 is weak in the long run and defending it causes some coordination problems on White's camp. Overall however it's not clear that Black has enough compensation for the pawn. 10.Qc1 e5 11.Rd1 Qe7 12.Nb5 The knight tries to install itself on the powerful d6 square. Any coordination that White obtains is welcome and will secure his extra pawn. 12...Be6 13.Ng5 Bg4 14.Nd6 h6 15.Nf3 Kh7 [15...b6 undermining the knight seems to me to be the best plan. Here White will at least have to figure out how to keep any advantage. 16.Bxh6? (16.Ne1 Be6© (16...Bxe2 17.Rxd5! Nxd5 18.Bxd5 Qd7 19.Qc2± with a very strong initiative.) ) 16...bxc5 17.Bxg7 Kxg7 18.Nb5 e4µ] 16.h3 Be6 17.b4 Considering the events of the game this move was not the best. [17.Ne1! This rerouting controls e4 and prepares the maneuver Nf3-b4!? pressuring d5.] 17...axb3 18.axb3 Rxa1 19.Qxa1 White is one move away from consolidating his queenside. 19...Ne4! Right on time to cause problems. 20.Nd2 f5? Ambitious, but not good. [20...Nxd6 21.cxd6 Qd7! Black is not in a rush to take on d6. White's knight on d2 is indirectly defending it, but moving it away would result in d6's immediate death. What else to do? (21...Qxd6 22.Nc4 Qd8 23.Bc5 Rg8 24.Bxd5 Bxd5 25.e4±) 22.Bc5 e4! with excellent chances to equalize.] 21.N2xe4 dxe4 22.Qb1!? Carlsen plays in a very greedy fashion. Caruana's initiative looks threatening but Carlsen has it all under control. 22...f4 23.Bd2 e3 

24.Be1! Bf5 25.Qc1 White's kingside pawn structure will be demolished, but the remaining pieces still provide good cover for the king and it is not so easy to bring the pieces to the kingside for Caruana. 25...h5 [25...exf2+ 26.Bxf2 fxg3 27.Bxg3± leads nowhere. If anything White is also positionally better here.] 26.fxe3 fxg3 27.Bxg3 Black is now down two pawns, his attack must work for him not to lose. 27...Qg5 28.e4! 

Giving back a little material to secure the position and obtain all the pluses in the situation. 28...Qxg3 29.Rd3! This is the key move, driving the queen back first and only then taking on f5. [29.exf5 gxf5 30.Rd3 Qg6 allows Black just a little more counterplay.] 29...Qh4 30.exf5 gxf5 31.e4 fxe4 [31...f4 32.Qd1 is hopeless for Black as his attack goes nowhere with a locked position.] 32.Bxe4+ Kh8 33.Qe3 Both kings are in some danger now, but what is most important is that White will win with any piece trades. 33...Rf4 34.Bg2 Qe7 35.Qe2 Qh4 36.b4 With everything defended on the kingside it is now a good time to push the pawn. 36...e4 Desperation, but what else to do? 37.Nxe4 Ne5 38.Rd5 Kg8 39.b5 Rf5 40.c6 bxc6 Time control is reached and the passed c-pawn is simply marching forward. 41.bxc6 Qe7 42.Nd6 Rg5 43.Nb5 It seems risky to move the knight all the way to b5 just to help the pawn out, but Carlsen has everything under control. 43...Qe6 44.Rd8+ Kh7 45.Qe4+ Rg6 46.c7 Qa6 Spite checks are all black has left.... and one nasty trick. 47.c8Q Qa1+ 

48.Kf2 [48.Kh2?? Nf3+! And suddenly black wins.] 48...Qb2+ 49.Ke1 Black will run out of checks next move and the extra queen is plenty of extra material. A wild game that Carlsen understood perfectly. 1–0
