SPICE and Gloria Arroyo Cup 2009

The Phillipine is on breaking news this week following the Ketsana typhoon that caused major flood in Manila. Information from Indonesian friend working there is the food is running out! So hopefully the situation get better as soon as possible.

On chess news,the Phillipino, GM Wesley So finished his first tourney in US, not very much successful with =8 and -1 out of 9. Wesley So is probably the main attraction to the tournament (at least from what I read in chessgames, chessdom, and susanpolgar's blog). The Group A, is a six players round robin, proved to be a tight competition and producing a high number of draw games. GM Yuriy Kuzubov from Ukraine is the lucky dude and proclaimed as the winner after winning the three way blitz tie-break.

On the B group something bit different and more decisive games. IM Ben Finegold is finally GM Ben Finegold and FM Danny Rensch now is an IM after drawing with IM Ray Robson. By saying this IM Ray Robson must hold on a while to get promoted to GM because he would only got it if he defeated Danny. Completed result :

Spice Cup 2009 Group A :

1-3. Kuzubov, Yuriy g UKR 2635 5½

Zhejiang Lishui 2009 - Megaranto and Irene Games

GM Le Quang Liem of Vietname again finished as number one in Zhejiang Lishui Xingqiu Open. He had been won a prestigious trophy at Kolkatta some weeks prior. He is on the right path to become Viet version of Wesley So. According to earlier post in some sources, Le is on the line up in the 4th edition of Pres. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo Cup, but perhaps due to this schedule he is not able to play there. Btw, IM Tirto is playing there. Now back to Zhejiang Lishui ...

GM Megaranto Susanto draw the last round against Wen Yang, in a ..errg 7 moves. This is perhaps because two of the top boards, Le Quang Liem-Liu Qingnan and Yu Yangyi-Zhou Weiqi also ended in a draw, in 12 and 16 movers. This is still not the less moves games, according to here, Wang Chen and Lu Shanglei agreed to a draw without even care to made a move.

Kasparov-Karpov Valencia 2009 - A Gruenfeld and Semi Slav lesson

The moment most waited in chess in this year is now over. Kasparov had played a match with Karpov just as in the old days and also still dominated his eternal rival. The match finished in the following conclusion :

Rapid Gary Kasparov - Anatoly Karpov 3-1
Karpov, Anatoly - Kasparov, Garry 0-1 24 D72 Gruenfeld 3.g3
Kasparov, Garry - Karpov, Anatoly 1-0 28 D31 Semi-Slav Defence
Karpov, Anatoly - Kasparov, Garry 1-0 36 D72 Gruenfeld 3.g3
Kasparov, Garry - Karpov, Anatoly 1-0 33 D31 Semi-Slav Defence

Blitz Gary Kasparov - Anatoly Karpov 6-2
Kasparov, Garry - Karpov, Anatoly 0-1 60 D31 Semi-Slav Defence
Karpov, Anatoly - Kasparov, Garry ½-½ 17 D22 QGA
Kasparov, Garry - Karpov, Anatoly 1-0 51 D31 Semi-Slav Defence
Karpov, Anatoly - Kasparov, Garry 0-1 36 D72 Gruenfeld 3.g3
Kasparov, Garry - Karpov, Anatoly 1-0 56 D31 Semi-Slav Defence
Karpov, Anatoly - Kasparov, Garry 0-1 26 D02 Queen's Pawn Game
Kasparov, Garry - Karpov, Anatoly 1-0 96 D31 Semi-Slav Defence
Karpov, Anatoly - Kasparov, Garry ½-½ 25 D72 Gruenfeld 3.g3

As can be seen, both of them were having an intense conversation on two particular openings , the D72 Fianchetto Gruenfeld and D31 Semi-Slav. If somebody compiled a book for this match it will almost like an opening book for this two opening lines. The only concern is that these games were played under rapid & blitz time control.

D72 the Fianchetto Gruenfeld is the most interesting since it get both win by black and white, but for D31 Semi-Slav it's all won by White.

Kasparov............ - ..............Karpov

Karpov..............-.................. Kasparov

Fianchetto Gruenfeld (left) & Semi-Slav (right) ala Kasparov & Karpov

The next match will be on December this year and the place will be Paris. Meanwhile Anand will be intermezzoing in November by also played a rapid game with Karpov in Bastia and Ajaccio, both in France.

ZheJiang LiShui XingQiu Open 2009-Round 6

Two strong tournament is being held in China this week. First is the Maotai Prince Cup which seeing top of Chinamen on the play. Live website is here. The other tournament is the ZheJiang LiShui XingQiu Open 2009, which is attended by second layer of China players plus some of oversea invitee. Li Shui is the name of the city in Zhe Jiang province. Li Shui mean 'beautiful water' while XingQiu is mean 'chess', the word 象棋 actually should be pinyin-ized as 'Xiang Qi' but perhaps Xiang Qi will refer to Chinese chess and 'XingQiu' is the official spelling for chess.

Vietnamese GM Le Quang Liem (2602) who just brought home the first prize at Kolkata is first seed. Beside him some other notable foreigners are WGM Nana Dzagnidize , who is on fourth seed abd then Indonesian top GM and WGM , Susanto Megaranto and Irene K. Sukandar.

On round five GM Susanto Megaranto clinched another full point over GM Wang Rui in a less than 30 moves Ruy Lopez. WGM Irene K. Sukandar is struggling with four draws. While writing up this blog both of them are facing strong opponents on round 6, Megaranto vs Le Quang Liem and Irene playing WGM Nana Dzagnidize. Soon Megaranto who applied a Trompowsky attack agree a less than 30 moves draw but Irene is fighting on and finally win over Nana. Perhaps this is the highest rated opponent of Irene since her encounter to GM Zhu Chen earlier this year. Holding Black side, Irene was went for a Queen exchange for two Rooks on move 20 in a Reti like opening.

Coming along are two Indonesians Gerhana CHKartina dan Yemy Jelsen.

Live transmission here and chess-result here.

Selamat ber-Lebaran dan berikut beberapa even catur yang sedang berlangsung, semoga bisa disimak di musim liburan ini. Di tengah gempita beberapa even catur dunia lain seperti dwitarung Kasparov - Karpov di Valencia, Short - Efimenko di Ukraina dan SPICE Cup di Texas, di mana Wesley So ikutan main, mari kita simak turnamen di China di mana GM Susanto dan WGM Irene bermain.

Turnamen ini bertajuk ZheJiang LiShui XingQiu Open, menurut penafsiran penulis yang masih pemula di mandarin, ZheJiang adalah nama propinsi di mana kota LiShui berada, Li berarti Cantik dan Shui berarti Air. Sedangkan XingQiu pasti ejaan buat kata Catur, karena karakter 象棋 bisa juga berarti Xiang Qi alias Catur Cina.

Hingga babak empat Susanto ada di posisi sharing tiga karena bernilai 3 sama dengan beberapa pemain lain. Di babak lima GM Wang Rui berhasil dikalahkan dalam permainan Spanyol/Ruy Lopez di bawah 30 langkah. Sedangkan Irene masih bertahan dengan empat draw dan di babak lima musti berhadapan dengan lawan tangguh WGM Nana Dzagnidize dari Georgia yang barusan bermain di Cina juga dalam kejuaran beregu Puteri. Pastilah dia lebih duluan beradaptasi dengan nasi ayam Hainan dan kepiting pedas (walaupun dua masakan ini beserta Bak kut teh tengah diklaim sebagai masakan national oleh negeri Jiran).

Hasil babak enam adalah, Susanto segera berdamai dengan Le setelah melalui 20 an langkah dalam permainan Trompowsky. Irene menang atas Nana, mungkin ini lawan dengan rating tertinggi Irene sejak pertemuannya dengan Zhu Chen. Irene memegang hitam dan bertukar Ratu demi dua Benteng. Lalu setelah langkah tiga puluhan berhasil memetik satu lagi perwira putih yang ditukar lawan dengan bidak Hitam. Sementara notasi bisa dilihat di siaran langsung di sini.

Game from Dutch Championship 2009

The 2009 Dutch Championship is on round 7 today. As reported by chessvibe, the event is much weaker from what its should be. Tiviakov, the only Dutch's top ten was withdrawn due to schedule conflict. But still we got to see some GMs like GM Anish Giri and GM Friso Nijboer. Here in round 7 they met together in a King Indian game. Nijboer try to stick to a thematic pawn attack to kingside, but soon got his Queen trapped, right in front of her King. But by this 'sacrifice' Black still hoping some tactical play taking advantage of his very pawn that lock in the White King at g2. Interesting game to watch in live mode.
Official site

Berikut game dari kejuaraan Belanda 2009. GM termuda Anish Giri melawan GM Friso Nijboer yang sering menulis buku. Permainanannya adalah bertema pembelaan Raja Hindia. Di pembelaan ini Hitam biasanya berusaha memajukan bidak ke arah sayap raja dan bermain taktik disini berharap men skak raja Putih. Tapi sebelum bisa melakukan itu Hitam keburu dimatikan Ratunya oleh Putih, namun tetap ada sedikit serangan balik dari Hitam yang menarik untuk disimak.
