Torneo de Morelia/Linares 2008

6ª Ronda : Morelia, 22-2-2008

Topalov-Anand (6)

Era una partida interesante a priori, sobre todo para Topalov, que debía forzar si no quería quedarse descolgado del jugador hindú de cara a la clasificación final del torneo.

La partida transcurrió por los cauces de la Defensa Nimzoindia, con la idea de fianchetto de Rubinstein, una de las líneas favoritas de Topalov.

Como era de esperar Anand vino bien preparado para la ocasión y aunque Veselin hizo todos los esfuerzos posibles para quedarse con la ventaja, ésta poco a poco se fue diluyendo ante el juego preciso del maestro hindú que terminó por arrancar un empate.

Anand parece muy en forma y se vislumbra como el campeón final de esta primera fase mexicana del evento.

Ivanchuk-Shirov (6)

El desafortunado en este su torneo, el GM Vasily Ivanchuk, seguidor acérrimo del Real Madrid club de fútbol y en particular de su capitán Raúl, jugó un duelo contra uno de sus rivales de antaño, el español de origen letón, el GM Alexei Shirov.

La partida lució poco para las blancas. Las negras optaron por un rápido cambio en "f6" dentro de la Defensa Semieslava. La novedad de Shirov llegó muy pronto.

En el decimotercer movimiento, tras unas jugadas dudosas de las blancas con su dama, las negras se hicieron con la iniciativa.

Por fin se intercambiaron y poco a poco se fueron igualando los acontecimientos hasta llegar a un fácil empate final.

Radjabov-Carlsen (6)

Apertura Española. Variante Berlinesa, pero con Radjabov jugando muy sólido. Carlsen ante el esquema adoptado por su rival rápidamente quiso hacerse con la iniciativa con 6…d5. Luego el GM noruego evitó el cambio de damas, para cederla más tarde a costa de debilitar el flanco de rey del jugador azerí. Lo cierto es que las blancas a cambio, quedaron con su pareja de alfiles.

Para Radjabov el primer fallo de Carlsen fue retirarse con su caballo a "e7" en su jugada trece, porque posibilitó 14.f4 activando los alfiles.

Las blancas ofrecieron un peón a costa de actividad. Rybka no encontró ningún plan para las negras que le dieran ventaja. Así hasta llegar al fatídico movimiento veinticinco en donde Magnus jugó pésimamente, cuando tenía el empate en su mano.

A partir de ahí, Radjabov jugó el final resultante con mucha precisión y maestría que le llevó directamente a un merecido triunfo final.

¡Entre jóvenes anda el juego!. Magnus abandonó el escenario con cara de pocos amigos... .

Aronian-Leko (6)

Esta partida fue sin duda la más disputada de la sexta ronda. Aronian de nuevo puso en práctica la Apertura Inglesa. Sobre el tablero se produjo la Variante Simétrica con las blancas rápidamente apuntando hacia el centro.

La novedad del GM armenio vino en la jugada nueve, que hizo pensar casi una hora a su rival. Las blancas habían entregado su peón de "f2" que Leko hizo bien en no tomar. Rybka encuentra compensación por el material entregado para las blancas.

Siguió una complicada lucha de maniobras en donde parecía que las blancas tenían ventaja de desarrollo. Sin embargo la computadora halló una respuesta muy buena para Leko que le hubiera dado mucha actividad.

De cualquier forma el camino seguido por el maestro magiar resultó ser lo suficientemente seguro, como para gozar de la oportunidad de lograr la igualdad en dos jugadas, primero en la treinta y uno y luego en la treinta y tres, cosa que lamentablemente no hizo.

A partir de ahí el maestro armenio logró una clara ventaja posicional que mantuvo firmemente hasta el movimiento cuarenta y cinco donde devolviendo el favor a su rival, falló.

Lo que ocurrió en aquellos momentos es que la posición resultó ser lo suficientemente complicada como para que el resultado final no pudiera pasar del empate, cosa que por lo que opina Rybka, las blancas pudieron haber sacado más tajada en posibles continuaciones resultantes.

Fue sin duda una apasionante partida por ambas partes.

Aronian, campeón de Corus 2008 se vislumbra como el único jugador que parece hacerle frente a Vishy Anand.

Veremos a ver que sucede… . De momento hoy sábado se disputa la última ronda de la fase de Morelia, capital del Estado de Michoacán.

Ng5 (IM) : could be hotel prep Cancun (IM) : the8 board is on fir8e Ng5 (IM) : I like g5 Ng5 (IM) : Qxf2 is too tactical, not Leko Ng5 (IM) : Leko wont risk Qxf2, too dangerous and risky when he hasnt analysed it Ng5 (IM) : comp says Qxf2 or a6 ilves (IM) : isnt this just bad for white?? Cancun (IM) : Leko must be very careful Ng5 (IM) : g5 ! forces Bxe5 so black must be OK there MightyViking (IM) : What's this? Ng5 (IM) : just looks like a bluff to me MightyViking (IM) : It's not what Leko wanted. Ng5 (IM) : Aronian knows Leko will bail out and not try to win MightyViking (IM) : Right. MightyViking (IM) : There might be a psychological reason for playing something like this against Leko. MightyViking (IM) : Against Leko specifically. MightyViking (IM) : indeed, butte! MightyViking (IM) : Let's see if Leko can find his clarity in Aronian's comp prep... MightyViking (IM) : More time wouldn't help much against Rybka preps. Ng5 (IM) : dont think we will see this again, g5 Bxe5 Nxe5 Ne4 f5! Nxg5 Be7 is better for black Ng5 (IM) : but maybe Leko will panic MightyViking (IM) : Leko is in panic already.

Drahacik (FM) : of course MightyViking (IM) : GM Naiditsch was caught cheating. Drahacik (FM) : Leko is being forced to make an attacking move, Qxf2+, and he DOESN'T like it!

En honor al pueblo mexicano que con tanto orgullo y pasión colabora en la continuidad de este mágico evento, finalizaremos esta crónica con una opinión de uno de sus polifacéticos artistas:

"El ajedrez es la forma de conformarse del hombre para saciar su sed, su nostalgia de infinito, conformarse en hacer la guerra allí en un espacio limitado pero al mismo tiempo capaz de alojar al infinito.

El ajedrez es el único juego que vale la pena jugar porque nos sobrepasa, como las piezas de Shakespeare.

El ajedrez es un duelo de un hombre contra otro, donde lo que es la personalidad del hombre queda comprometida. Cada jugador lucha contra su enemigo interior, que es su torpeza o sus hallazgos".

Juan José Arreola (1908-2001)- Escritor, académico y editor mexicano -.

Recibid un cordial saludo!,
