Visualizing Endgame Outcome: Series 14


Good Day… Welcome to my YouTube Chess Channel. Today we are going to study about the game between GM Wang Hao of
China versus Indian prodigy – GM Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa in the
2020 Gibraltar Chess Masters. This game Illustrated tough fighting skills and
great opening theory. Now, let’s go to the Diagram “A” to discuss the endgame problem. Kindly analyze this endgame problem, this
is white to move first, find the “candidate moves” for white. This is your
Homework, Good luck. Now, let’s go to the Diagram “B” to analyze the opening part of the game. Let’s start by playing c4, e5, Nc3,
Nf6, Nf3, Nc6, e3 Bb4 then Nd5. Please analyze this move as your “Homework”. Do you think this is good move or bad move? Goodluck… now let’s go to analyze the game at the Bigger Board. Let’s start by playing
c4, e5 , Nc3, Nf6, Nf3, Nc6, this is the English Opening –
Four (4) Knights. It is reversed Sicilian Defense as we see it, continuously, e3,
Bb4. This is the Diagram “B”. This move wants to exchange the knight at c3
to create a double pawn as well as castles early, continuously white moved
Qc2, then Bishop takes Knight, bxc3, better than dxc3,
continuously d6, e4, white wants to control the center soon wiill push d4,
continuously, castling, g3 – I like this move. Bishop is a better place at
g2, Nd7, Bg2, Nc5 positioning, Nh4 not allowing f5 push and opening way for Bishop at g2 to be watchful of the diagonal, continuously, a6, castles, b5 black wants to open the position, d4 attacking the knight, GM Wang Hao
is setting up a trap giving free pawn at d4, exd4, cxd4, Nxd4, Qb2, White
Queen at b2 attacking the Knight while the Bishop at g2 indirectly attacking
the Rook at a8, continuously, Nc6, e5 , Bd7 – protecting the hanging knight,
exd6, cxd6, Qd2 attacking the d6, Rc8, cxb5, Ne5, bxa6,
Bb5 attacking the Rook, Rd1, Ba4, Re1, Ncd3, Rf1 – black pieces
are everywhere, white is a bit careful… Rc2, Qe3, Nc5, a7,
this is a dangerous pawn. Bc6, Bishop takes, Knight takes, Qf3,
attacking the knight, Nd4, Qd5, Ne2 check, Kg2, Nc3 attacking
the Queen, Qf3, Qa8 – attacking the Queen at the same time, attacking
the a7 pawn, Nf5 – knight is perfectly placed at this square. Queen
takes pawn, Bf4 attacking the d6 pawn, Ne6, Bishop takes pawn, Ng5 attacking
the Queen at f3, Qc6, Qa8, Queen takes, Rook takes, a3 – not allowing the
pawn to be captured. Nge4, Rac1 – trying to exchange the Rook, Rook takes,
Rook takes, g6 then Ne7 check, Kf8, Knight takes pawn- discovered check, Kg7, Nh4, Knight takes Bishop, Rook takes Knight, Nb5 trying to
capture the pawn or the Rook, Rc6, Nxa3, but there’s another move
which is Rxa3, which is a bad move after Nf5 check, Kf8,
Rc8 mate. So, let’s go back to this move after Rc6 then Knight takes pawn,
then Nf5, Kg8, Rc7 – trying to attack the
f7 pawn with the help of knight at f5, white is winning here due to attacks the f7 pawn & will restrict the black knight mobility, so continuously, Rf8 protects the f7 pawn which is forced, Kf3, Nb1, Ke3, Re8 check, Kf4 getting closer the black kingside. Nd2, f3, Rf8 protects the f7 pawn, h4, Kh8, h5, Kg8, g4, Kh8, g5, Kg8 – Black can’t do anything just waiting for white’s killer move Nh6 check, Kg7, Kg4, Nf1 – then black made a mistake after Knight check, Kg8, Then Rd7 Black Resigned – Due to the black knight is trapped What an amazing play of GM Wang Hao also, I am very proud of GM Praggnanandhaa for being a great fighter, I want to thank you for supporting my YouTube Chess Channel..just press click then SUBSCRIBE & LIKE ….GOD BLESS…
