Hoogeveen: No Wins For Shirov and Timman Halfway

Время публикации: 15.10.2014 04:24 | Последнее обновление: 15.10.2014 05:27

The Unive festival is underway in the Dutch town of Hoogeeven, the key event being two matches of 6 games each which have seen their half-way point yesterday. So far, the younger GMs haven't lost a single game to their experienced opponents: Anish Giri is winning 2.5 to 0.5 against Alexei Shirov, Baadur Jobava has 2-1 vs Jan Timman. On Monday, both games have proved decisive, while the next day encounters have been drawn.

It was probably aimed opening preparation which has helped Giri to win the second game:

GIRI - SHIROV (game 2)

21.Ne4! The game Wagner - Shirov (Bundesliga 2014) saw 21.Nxg7 c5+! 22.Kh3! Bc8+ (22...c4!?) 23.g4 Kxg7 24.Bxe5+ Rxe5 25.Rxf7+ Kxf7 26.Qxh7+ Ke6 27.Qg6+ Ke7 28.Qg7+, and the draw was agreed after a few more checks.
21...c5 22.Kf1 Bxe4 23.Qxe4 Ng6 24.Qd5 Nxf4

25.Ne7+! The key check which allows White to attack the f7-pawn. 25.Rxf4 c4 was worse because the b4-bishop would stop Ne7+. 25...Kh8 26.Rxf4 c4 27.Nc6! with decisive advantage for White (which could be converted into victory much faster than in the game).

Jan Timman has lost the 2nd encounter due to lesser precision in the series of mutual tactics:

JOBAVA - TIMMAN (game 2)

29.c6 Rd5? (29...Rd6 was better) 30.Nxf7! Rxa5 31.Qxe6 Kf8 32.Rcd1? (32.Qd7! would put Black on dire straits) 32...Qc7? Timman missed a sudden chance to complicate the matters by 32...Qa8!, allowing the neat combination instead.

33.Nd8!! Rxd8 34.Rd7! 1–0

Both Shirov and Timman had definite chances to strike back in round 3 but their opponents managed to hold difficult endgames.

Today (October 15th) is the rest day in both matches, while the Unive Open which is taking place alongside will go on; moreover, today will see as many as 2 rounds in the open. After 4 rounds Alexander Beliavsky, the veteran GM representing Slovenia, is in the sole lead with the perfect score. Victor Mikhalevsky (Israel), Eric Hansen (Canada) and the top ranked Andrey Vovk (Ukraine, 2637) are half a point behind (3.5/4 each).
