Stray Rook

Mamedyarov maneuvered awkwardly in time trouble and lost to Svidler

The 1st stage of the 2014/15 FIDE Grand Prix is taking place in Baku. Two rounds are over; the second playing day saw 2 decisive games as well as the first one.

Peter Svidler got an clear advantage against Shakhriyar Mamedyarov (20.Qb5) and maintained it for the next ten moves. Eventually, Mamedyarov's position collapsed in mutual time trouble.

SVIDLER - MAMEDYAROV

30...Ra8? (after 30...Rdc8! White would be obviously better but Black could still hold) 31.Bd6! Rxa2+ 32.Kg3 Rb2? 33.Ra1! Rc8? (33...Ra5 was more persistent) 34.Bxb4!, and the stray b2-rook is suddenly trapped. 34...Nc5 35.Ba3 Rxb3 36.Bxc5 1–0

Dmitry Andreikin lost again, now as White against Hikaru Nakamura. The latter chose the Dutch Defence which is considered somewhat risky but brings him good results from time to time.

ANDREIKIN - NAKAMURA

White's position is preferrable, but after the careless 16.g4 the game went a bit awry for Andreikin: 16...Nf6 (16...fxg4!?) 17.gxf5 exf5 18.Bf2 Be6 19.Qc2 (19.d5 Na5) 19...Bd5, although his real problems began only with 20.Nf3?!.

The encounter between Fabiano Caruana and Boris Gelfand who both had won their first games was an exciting draw (see the commentary by Gelfand for our website).

The game between two Russian GMs Alexander Grischuk and Sergey Karjakin was also drawn. Grischuk has every reason to be unhappy with the outcome as he has missed the victory more than once in severe mutual time trouble.

GRISCHUK - KARJAKIN

30.f5 gxf5? (the position would be roughly equal in case of 30...Nxd4! 31.f6 Nf3+ 32.Rxf3 exf3 33.Qxf3 R4c7 or 33...Qf7) 31.Rxf5 Rxd4

32. Rdf1? This is the first time, although the win was not obvious at all: 32.Bf8!! (creating the threat of mate in one) 32...Nxf8 33.Nh6+ Kg7, and here already many moves work - for example, 34.Rdf1. 32...Rd3 33.Qxb6 Qc6? (33...Bc6 is the lesser evil) 34.Qf2 Qe8 35.Nf6+? The second time. Instead of the natural text move, White could quickly score his victory by 35.Qa7 или 35.Nb5. After 36...Bxf6 36.Rxf6 Rf3! the worst for Karjakin has been over.

Evgeny Tomashevsky held a very long and difficult endgame against Leinier Dominguez, and actually the Cuban GM missed his chance on move 74.

DOMINGUEZ - TOMASHEVSKY

73...Kh6? was a mistake which came unnoticed by White. Dominguez played 74.Rg5 instead of 74.h5 Qf7 75.g4! fxg3 76.Qe3+ Rf4 (or 76...Kg7 77.Ra7) 77.Kg2!, and Black can't avoid the loss of material - for example, after 77...Qf6 78.Ra4! Kg5 79.Kxg3.

Teimour Radjabov opted for the Berlin Wall against Rustam Kasimdzhanov. His 15th move was a novelty which didn't prevent him from difficulties.

KASIMDZHANOV - RADJABOV

Here Kasimdzhanov played an astonishing 20.Nd8!! (if 20...Rxd8 then 21.Rad1 threatening with 22.e6) 20...Bxe3 21.fxe3 Bxg4, but his further play can be improved. For example, 22.Nxc6!? was interesting (22...Bxh3 23.a4!).

Gelfand, Caruana, Nakamura and Svidler are in the lead after 2 rounds with 1.5 points each.
