Sharevich - Kashlinskaya [E70]
9.Marx Gyorgy, 28.06.2011
This game was plaied in the last round of IX. Gyorgy Marx Memorial. The situation before the game was following: Madl Ildiko and me, we both had the same quantity of points.And in case of dividing the first place, I would have taken the second, because my coefficients were lower.So, I had a very comfortable psykhological situation. I wasn't nervous, I didn't think about the result, because I understood, that it could so happen that I'll not take the first place even in case of winning this game. (If Madl Ildiko also won)And now some words about my rival.  This tournament proved to be unsuccessful for Anna Sharevich...Though everybody saw, how she was fighting every game. And of course her result does not match her level of play. So, I understood, that the game with Anna will not be easy.

 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.Bg5 This is a fairly rare move...But, fortunately, we have chessbase, and I managed to find some games of Anya in this varian there at home.So, I was ready! 5...h6 6.Be3 Ng4 7.Bc1 e5 8.d5 f5 9.exf5 gxf5 10.Be2 Nf6 11.Bh5+ Nxh5 12.Qxh5+ Kf8 So, we achieved some difficult position, which was plaied sometimes even in the top-level chessplayers' games

13.Bd2 So far everything was going as in my home preparation. But the last white's move was a little surprise for me....And actually I don't think, that it was good decision for white to take their bishop on this place.  [Usually in this variant the picture of play can be the foдlowing: 13.Nge2 Qe8 14.Ng3 Na6 15.0–0 Bd7 16.b4 Kg8 17.Rb1 Kh7 18.Nb5 Rf8 19.Qxe8 Raxe8 20.Nxa7 Ba4 21.Bd2 Bc2 22.Rbc1 Bd3 23.Rfe1 e4 1/2 Sokolov,I (2645)-Ivanchuk,V (2700)/Linares 1995/CBM 046; Or, as it was played in the game of my coach Sergey Dolmatov: 13.f4 Qe8 14.Qh4 e4 15.Nge2 Na6 16.0–0 Qg6 17.Be3 Bd7 18.Qf2 Nb4 19.Nc1 a5 20.a3 Na6 1/2 Nikolaidis,I (2498)-Dolmatov,S (2606)/Istanbul 2003/CBM 096] 13...Na6 [I also was thinking about this move, because both of them are planned moves for black 13...Qe8 For example 14.Qxe8+ Kxe8 15.f4 e4 but, for sure, black has no problems here.] 14.Nge2 Qe8 15.Ng3 The play was very logical 15...Bd7 [Maybe stronger was 15...Qxh5 16.Nxh5 f4 with the next move Bf5...I think that here black is ok.] 16.Qxe8+ [In case of 16.0–0 during the game I was thinking about  16...Qf7 (But I think that there are many other interesting moves in this position, like 16...Qxh5 17.Nxh5 Rg8 18.Nxg7 Kxg7 19.f4 e4 In my opinion this position is near to draw) 17.Qxf7+ Kxf7 18.Nh5 Bf8! This was my idea: to safe advantage of two bishops] 16...Rxe8

At this very moment I saw, that Madl Ildiko had a draw...And I understood, that it was my chance to win the competition, but, as I said before, I had to win, not to have any division...I understood this, and I had to reorganize myself psykhological for only the winning.

17.Nh5 In case of other move, I'll save the advantage of 2 bishops 17...f4! I think, that strategical it was absolutely right decision. Because in perspective my bishop on g7 would be changed, and I wanted to limit white's bishop and to take more area for my bishop d7. 18.Nxg7 It was not obvious now. My bishop on g7 has no moves! [Mayve better was 18.f3 Rg8 19.Ne4 Bf5 20.Nxg7 Rxg7 21.Kf2 Bxe4 22.fxe4 Nc5 23.Kf3 Of course, black is ok...But I'm not sure that it ia enough for winning; After 18.Nb5 I wanted to go 18...Rg8 19.Nxg7 Rxg7] 18...Kxg7 19.Nb5 [In case of 19.f3 I could play 19...Bf5 with good chances] 19...Kf6 Here I remembered my coach who always says me that in the endgame kings should come to center:) Sometimes it sounds funny, but in this position in, in my opinion, it's interesting decision. [Another interesting continuation was 19...Bxb5 20.cxb5 Nc5 And black has strategical better chances for win] 20.a4?! [I think, that this move was better 20.b4 but I always can play 20...Bxb5 21.cxb5 Nb8 22.Rc1 Rc8 with the better position. Because white pieces are too weak.]

 20...Nc5! I spent so much time for this move, because this move is really risky. But as it is in Russian language: Who does not risk, do not drink champagne 21.b4 [It is really interesting to see some other opportunities: 21.Nxc7 Rc8 (21...Reg8 22.g3 Nb3 23.Ra3 Nd4 with compensation) 22.Nb5 (too weak is 22.Ne6 Nxe6 23.dxe6 Bxe6 24.b3 d5 and black wins) 22...Ke7 (also interesting is 22...Nb3 23.Ra3 Nxd2 24.Kxd2 Rxc4 25.Nxd6 Rb4 black is ok here...but this position is near draw) 23.Nxa7 (23.b4 Nb3 24.Rb1 Nxd2 25.Kxd2 Rxc4 and black has better endgame) 23...Ra8 24.Nb5 Nxa4 and it isn't difficult to feel the weakness of white's pawns(or 24...Rxa4 25.Rxa4 Nxa4) ] 21...Nd3+ 22.Ke2 Nb2 23.Nxc7? Maybe this was the last and decisive white's mistake [The best move for white was 23.c5 ; 23.Rhc1 a6! This was the point! White has not any successful move 24.Nxc7 Rc8 25.Ne6 Nxc4 with win] 23...Rc8 24.Nb5 Nxc4 25.Nxa7 Ra8 26.Nb5 Rhg8! Now black wins [Unfortunately, this move doesn't win 26...Rxa4 27.Rxa4 Bxb5 28.Ra7 Nb2+ 29.Kf3 Bc4 and after 30.Rc1 Bxd5+ 31.Ke2 Bc4+ it's draw] 27.Nc3 [27.g3 f3+! 28.Kd3 Rgc8! and the threat Bf5 is fatal for white 29.Kc3 as computer says-it's the best move for white, but of course it's hard to do moves like those for people 29...Bf5 But even here black has the decisive advantage; or 27.Rhg1 Bxb5 28.axb5 Rxa1 29.Rxa1 Nxd2 30.Kxd2 Rxg2 31.Ke2 e4 black wins.] 27...Rxg2 28.Ne4+ Ke7 29.Kf3 Rag8 30.Bc3 Bf5 31.Ng3 Bh3 32.Ne4 R2g6 33.Ke2 Bg2 white resigned. 0-1
