Kosovo Round 9: Inarkiev Consolidates His Lead

He has reason to smile

The sole leader after 8 rounds, Ernesto found himself playing Black in round 9 against an ‘ideal’ opponent: in a worse endgame Igor Kovalenko first rejected a draw by move repetition and then he completely lost the plot. 

KOVALENKO - INARKIEV

White’s position isn’t good enough to justify playing for a win. Moreover, he could have forced a draw here: 47.Bxd4 cxd4 48.Ne5+ Kg8 49.Ng6 Kf7 50.Ne5+.
47.Rxf8+?! Igor’s exchange sac is objectively sufficient to maintain equality, but it creates the risk that the game will eventually end in tears.

47...Kxf8 48.Bd6+ Kf7 49.Bxc5 Ne3

50.Nb6? White’s misplaced hunger to win now brings him to the verge of defeat. It still wasn’t too late to admit his error: 50.Nxe3 dxe3 51.Bb4 and White can hold this position.
50...Ra5 51.Bb4 Rh5 52.a4? His last chance to draw was 52.h4. But the Latvian grandmaster seemed intent on losing this.
52...Rxh2 53.a5 Ra2? 53...Rb2! would win a decisive tempo. For example: 54.Bc5 Ra2 55.Bb4 Nc2 56.Bd2 h5.
54.Na8? 54.Kxd4 would have allowed White to cling on: 54...Nc2+ 55.Kc5 Nxb4 56.Kxb4 Ke6 57.g4 Ra1 (if 57...Kd6? White has a nice way to save the game: 58.Kb3! Ra1 59.Kb2) 58.Kb5 Kd6 59.Nc4+ Kc7 60.Kc5
.
54...Ke6 55.Ke4 Ra4 56.Nc7+ Kd7 57.Na6 Kc6 58.Bf8 Rxa5 59.Nb4+ Kb5 60.Nd3

60...Kc4? The easiest way to win was 60...Nf1! 61.g4 Kc4 62.Ne5+ (or he could have lost gracefully with 62.Bxg7 Nd2#) 62...Rxe5+! 63.fxe5 d3 64.e6 d2 65.e7 d1Q 66.e8Q. Instead of winning the queen Black has a neat mating combination: 66...Qd5+ 67.Kf4 g5#.
61.Bxg7? 61.Ne5+ would have created more problems for Black: 61...Rxe5+! (61...Kc3? only leads to a draw: 62.Nc6 Ra6 63.Nxd4 Nf1 64.Bxg7 Nxg3+ 65.Kf3) 62.fxe5 Ng4 63.Ba3 (after 63.e6 d3 64.e7 Nf6+! 65.Ke3 Ne8 Black locks White’s bishop out of the game and wins) 63...d3 64.Bc1 Kc3 65.e6 (65.Kf5 Kc2 66.Bf4 Nxe5 67.Kxe5 g5 68.Be3 d2 69.Bxd2 Kxd2 70.Kf5 Ke3 71.Kg6 g4 72.Kxh6 Kf3) 65...Kc2 66.Bf4 g5 67.e7 gxf4 68.Kf5 Ne3+ 69.Kg6 (69.Kxf4 Nd5+) 69...f3 70.e8Q f2 71.Qxe3 f1Q, and Black should win.
61...Nf5! 62.Ne5+ Rxe5+! Ernesto sacs the exchange to promote his pawn.
63.Bxe5 d3 64.Kxf5 d2 65.Kf6 d1Q 66.f5 Kd5 67.Bf4 Qh5 0-1 (Commentary by Alexei Yarovinsky)

All of Ernesto’s closest rivals recorded draws in round 9. Wojtaszek and Goganov are a full point behind him, with the next players even further back.

Inarkiev has been busy lately – prior to Kosovo he played six games in the Russian team championship. So far in May he has spent 21 days at the chessboard playing 15 games and has chalked up the impressive score of: +10 =5 -0. His current rating has now reached 2730, adding 44 points.

Will May turn out to be Ernesto Inarkiev’s most successful month ever?

Two more rounds to go.

  • With two rounds to go in the European Championship at Kosovo Ernesto Inarkiev is firmly in pole position. However, the battle is not only about first place. The players are also competing for invitations to the World Cup (the first 23 participants get a ticket) as well as for cash (22 main prizes plus 10 additional prizes). Not to mention the creative aspect, which as usual is the focus of our commentator Alexei Yarovinsky, who reflects on several fragments from round 9 below. 

  • The top game in the European Championship in Gjakova has ended with Inarkiev winning as Black against David Navara.

  • We have already commented twice on Aleksey Goganov’s successes in Gjakova. Let’s now take a close look at his latest victory, following which Aleksey finds himself hot on the heels of the tournament leader.

    Mateusz BARTEL - Aleksey GOGANOV
    European Championship 2016, 8th round

    Ruy Lopez Opening

  • Another Russian celebrates his victory

  • Going into the fourth round of the European Championship in Gjakova two Georgian GMs were among the competitors yet to lose a game: that country’s undisputed number one Baadur Jobava and the experienced Zurab Sturua, who has been one of the top players on the veterans circuit in recent years. But last night their paths diverged. For how long, though?

    JOBAVA - PARLIGRAS

  • Nine players have yet to lose a game after the third round of the European Championship in Gjakova. This set of competitors includes Baadur Jobava, who the previous day had stayed true to his original style and deliberately adopted a somewhat worse position against Samvel Ter-Sahakyan, provoking the Armenian GM to charge forward with reckless abandon, for which he was duly punished.

  • The second round of the European Championship in Gjakova saw a number of fierce battles. The only exceptions were a few games between compatriots that ended in harmless draws: between the Czech players Hracek and Navara, and between Belarusians Stupak and Zhigalko.

  • Anna is back with a vengeance

  • Nothing attractive about Gjakova except the chess games

  • The self-declared Republic of Kosovo is host to the European Chess Championship that kicked off on Thursday. The competition sees a fair mix of strong grandmasters and many amateurs. In fact too many: we have the impression that such a large number of unrated or lowly-rated local players has never competed in such a tournament.
