Carlsen Carnage Continues: Wins 4th Kings Tournament 2010

In all three games of the final round Black was victorious: Radjabov beat Gelfand, Ponomariov beat Nisipeanu and Carlsen beat Wang Yue. This left the youngest player with the highest rating two full points clear of the field, with an incredible 2918 performance. That translates to a FIDE rating of 2826, the second highest in chess history. Final report with commentary by Dorian Rogozenco.




ROMGAZ and the Chess Club Society "Elisabeta Polihroniade” of Bucharest are staging a double round robin tournament with six top GMs: the world's highest ranked player, Magnus Carlsen of Norway, who at the age of 19 has an Elo rating of 2813. Ukrainian GM Ruslan Ponomariov is a former FIDE knockout world champion; Boris Gelfand of Israel, winner of the FIDE World Cup in 2009; the top Chinese player Wang Yue; Teimour Radjabov, the second highest ranked player of Azerbaijan, and Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu, the best Romanian player. The competition is taking place from June 14th to 25th 2010 in Medias, Romania.





Round ten summary

By GM Dorian Rogozenco




Who could have guessed such results today? All three games of the last round in King’s Tournament finished with victories for Black! And how! White players didn’t have a chance! 


Nispeanu lost in 23 moves against Ponomariov in a game that looks as an opening catastrophe. However, this won’t be very precise. Black got a pleasant position in the Four Knights Variation indeed, but the reason of White’s loss was a tactical mistake on move 17, after which White’s position collapsed surprisingly quickly.


Gelfand-Radjabov saw the King’s Indian, where it appeared first that White achieved an edge thanks to the centralised pieces. But starting with move 18 ... well, Gelfand said it himself: ”Everything went wrong. I played horrible today”. That was a very painful defeat for Boris, who otherwise played a very good tournament. By losing this last game versus Radjabov the Israeli also missed his chance to qualify in the Grand Slam Final tournament (most likely Radjabov will play there).


Finally, Wang Yue-Carlsen that lasted longer than other games didn’t differ much: here too White’s play was depressing. Carlsen equalized easily in the Gruenfeld Defence and then slowly, but firmly increased his slight advantage in endgame to take a full point and finish the tournament in great style: 5 wins and 5 draws. Actually this also reflects the draw ratio of the tournament: exactly half of the games were decisive, which is a good achievement at such level.

Download My Best Games with Black by GM Alexei Shirov(Full DVD) | Chessbase Fritz Trainer


Fritz Trainer-My best games with black-Alexei Shirov
Chessbase Fritz Trainer-My best games with black by GM Alexei Shirov(Full DVD)
Price : US $47.95 
  
If you want to win with Black, you must decide which is the best strategy to achieve your aim. Should you take risks and go for the win right from move one, or should you patiently set about achieving equality and then wait for mistakes by White? Which opening should you choose and what is the role played by opening preparation? What can you do when you even have to win with Black, because, e.g., a match can only be saved by a win with Black in the very last game – a situation which has become all the more familiar because of the ever-rising number of knock-out tournaments? Alexei Shirov tries to answer these questions by referring to his own games as Black. In doing so, he describes how his own attitude to this problem has changed over his career, right up to his successes in the 2007 World Cup in Khanty-Mansiysk, in which he reached the final. Video running time: 6 h 45 m.

Alexei Shirov was born in Riga just like world champion Mihail Tal, and also his playing style reminds many chess fans of the young Tal. In the beginning of the 90s, a comet-like rise brought the young Latvian to the world top within the shortest of time. Being no older than 22 years, he already had an Elo rating of nearly 2750 and belonged to the absolute elite. Since then Shirov has been one of the best players in the world, delighting all chess fans with original and amazing ideas on the board.

Download Foxy Openings Vol.90: Von-Hennig Schara Gambit Easily Explained - Andrew Martin

Foxy Openings Volume 90: The Von-Hennig Schara Gambit Easily Explained - Andrew Martin , Price : 24.95 $
Running Time: 1 hour 32 minutes
 
The Von-Hennig Schara gambit is one of the sharpest responses after White plays 1.d4 d5 2.c4. Black disallows the staid Queen's Gambit and goes for the kill! Black opens lines at the cost of a pawn and goes on the attack, making the Von-Hennig Schara gambit an ideal practical weapon for the club or tournament player. Grandmasters do not venture this gambit very often, because they think it is too risky and as a result there is much unchartered territory to be discovered. On this new Foxy DVD, Andrew Martin suggests a repertoire for Black which will get your opponents thinking - White must defend at the very beginning of the game! The author steers around theoretical difficulties by suggesting unusual move-orders, so expect to win your fair share of games with this fiery gambit!






The Foxy Chess Openings Series is a timeless collection of Grandmasters opening explained simple enough to comprehend at any level. These DVDs will improve your rating and give you a greater understanding of all the openings and is recommended for all levels.

Download Foxy Openings Vol.89:The Baltic Defence,Easily Explained - Andrew Martin

Foxy 89: The Baltic Defence, Easily Explained - Andrew Martin, Price : 24.95 $
Running Time: 1 hour 55 minutes

The Baltic Defense arises after 1.d4 d5 2.c4 Bf5!?, and if you are tired of suffering on the Black side of the Queen's Gambit, then the Baltic Defense can change all that. The sequence 1.d4 d5 2.c4 Bf5!? offers active and unusual play which the Queen's Gambiteer might not be familiar with, and forces White to re-think his opening plans. Let IM Andrew Martin show you how.
Grandmaster specialists Rausis and Miladinovic use this interesting counterattack frequently, with good results. Black plays for the initiative from the move two. The Baltic Defense is as offbeat as it gets against the Queen's Gambit, and is an ideal weapon for the club and tournament chess player.

Reviews & Testimonials
  1. "The amiable Grandmaster Yasser Seirawan introduces a staggering 3 hours and 46 minutes of footage on DVD covering all elements of the 'Royal Game'. The ideal way to reinforce and improve your chess knowledge." * US Chess Federation's Chess Life, January 2003 issue *
  2. "One of the best instructional chess videos ever made has been reissued as a DVD, and the new format makes it an even better product than before. Previously available as a two-videotape VHS set, Pro Chess: The Video Chess Mentor has been converted to DVD."
    * ChessCafe.com - January 8, 2003 - here's the complete Review *
  3. "Former US Champ and IGM Yasser Seirawan does a fine job of explaining various moves and strategies that will help chess players master the game. The DVD offers plenty of information in a straightforward, relaxed and low-key manner. Chess enthusiasts will find this an informative presentation, and will appreciate having a pro like Seirawan calmly explain the game's intricate nature."
    * School Library Journal, January 2003 Issue by Brian Wilson, Evanston Public Library - here's the complete Review *
  4. "An invaluable and unique addition to your chess library.... Seirwan's affable nature and above average communication skills places the sometimes complex and often intangible aspects of advanced chess within easy reach of the average player.... can quite literally shave years off the standard learning curve for novice players. Not only does Seirawan tell you what you should look for and what you should do in a given situation but he also explains "why" you should do it. DVD technology is ideally suited to an instructional presentation of this type. I found the DVD to be a highly motivational experience, it is simply the very best instructional chess product available on today's market."
    * Dave "Prophet" Williams, Managing Editor of VGOgamer.com - here's the complete 5 Star Review *
  5. "The DVD went over very well. My soon to be son-in-law strives to become a master and in the first few minutes of watching something, he had already learned things he did not realize. My daughter also gained a lot from a short bit of viewing and was able to beat people that she could not come close to. Your product is a wonderful gift for chess players. Thanks.." * Patti (player's Mom), Riverview, FL *
  6. "Yasser's DVD will help me out a great deal. The nice thing about it is you don't need a chess board. All the diagrams with the examples are in front of you. I never really got the time count, but now in his explanation and diagram format he shows you how to see who is ahead in time count. So even with the little things I have seen and listened to so far, I am picking up things that I didn't get before and I have only watched half of the DVD. Your production is superb!" * Mark (player), Mystic, CT *
  7. "Yaz" is an engaging and personable host, and he certainly has a gift for making complex strategies easy to understand. This title would play well in the games section, too." * Video Store Magazine, October 6-12, 2002 issue *
  8. "Exercise Your Mind." * Insight Magazine. *
  9. "Full of practical advice." * John Jacobs, Dallas Times Herald. *
  10. "The US Champ inspires confidence as he relates secrets of the game." * Ed Albaugh, Washington Times. *
  11. "I'd recommend these programs to anyone seeking to improve their game." * Larry Parr, Editor, Chess Life / USCF.
