Visualizing Endgame Outcome: Series 3

Visualizing Endgame Outcome: Series 3


Good day to everyone welcome to my
YouTube channel today we are going to study about the game between Grand
Master Peter Svidler versus Grandmaster Danil Dubov at the 2019
Grand Prix Humburg, Grandmaster Peter Svidler is a specialist on using
Grunfeld defense when he is playing the black
side now, he use it as white, what do you think Grandmaster Dubov will use as an
opening preparation to beat grandmaster Svidler in his own style but first let’s
go to Diagram A and analyze the position as you can see this is an endgame sample,
here were both white and black has equal pawn count,s but also has overextended
pawns at e5 and c4. I want you to analyze this position and probably do
it with your friend to be able to share this knowledge to practice endgame which
is the main plan for you to be able to get oriented to many endgame positions.
So this is your homework, now we’re going to Dagram B
as you can see from this position this kind of bishop at e3 kind of I was
thinking what is this Bishop doing at this square, where it looks like congesting
it, for my opinion, I would prefer going to Bishop f4 or either
why not c3 the waiting move because if you don’t want to play c4, say c4 then up
to you to play the solid games such as c3 but it depends really on your taste.
Now we are going to study the main game We start by playing Nf3, d5, g3,
g6, Bg2, Bg7, d4, Nf6, Castling, Castling, so as it looks like it’s the
same position now GM Svidler is playing the reverse Grunfeld defense
as Grandmaster Dubov copied it, at the same position so how is it gonna be
differing right now what would be Grand Master Svidler’s response now he
decided to play Be3 which personally,
probably, he might be thinking oh I’m going not g4 then having a great tempo
of Bishop f4 but I believe that Grand Master Dubov not thinking that way
there’s a saying that if this congestion in the center and you have to hit the
center, so he played Nc6 but there’s also other side lines like
Nbd7 and also Ng4 which I don’t suggest
so let’s continue after Nc6 then h3 avoiding Ng4 now Re8 from
this position black must hit the center because the e- pawn of white is congested
blocking by Bishop which is making it now in a defensive mode as in
disadvantages so let’s continue then finally went to be a fall but now of
there’s Nh5 as it wanted to clear away the bishop because the main idea
now is e5 after Bg5, h6 Bc1
look at this..from. Be3, Bf4 Bg5, Bc1- that’s four moves
wasted so be careful on using variations so sooner your position or the outcome
of what you chose as an opening will delay the progression of each pieces
maybe at the Queen side or delaying any plans or you want to strategize or to
attack so let’s continue Nf6 Nbd2 now e5, if i looks like black is
much more dynamic now so after dxe5 Ne4… which is a good move there is other move
Knight takes, looks equal, it looks equal so our Grandmaster Dubov chose
the better Ne4 well of course the e5 pawn is hanging so any time he would
be able to capture that, so let’s continue c4, c4 also a bit not
solid enough to me I thinks it c3 much safe this move
so as we go after c4 then Nxd2, Qd2 I suggest also I believe Nd2 which
I prefer then takes, takes then that would be the position but there’s a move
Be6 which is also good for black continuously after Qd2, takes,
Qc3, Be6 protecting c4, Be3 went back again to the favorite square
then Qe7, Rfd1, Rad8, Rac1, b5 that’s if we count one two three four
seven and it’s still equal but the pawn at e5 is hanging now so let’s see what
happens, a3 now this is the move that creates one pawn up so after this move
a6 to protect the pawn at b5, Bf4 good more Bf3 then Nd4 fantastic
move Qe4, Bishop takes, Be5 Qe5, Qe5, now Knight takes Bishop
which I believe that’s the winning move because it separates the e pawn and it
just become like a 3 pawn island already because that area from black
side there’s three pawns and from white side there’s 4 pawns
considered three pawns so continuously check, rook takes, rook takes, the queen side
has obviously so advantagious for black because its 4-2 pawn structure so as
we continue Kf1 , Kg7, Rd8, a5, f4, Rc5, now positioning
to move, Ke2, c3, breaking the chain takes, takes, a4 creating the
double pawn to weaken the structure, takes but still a pass pawn, Ra4 trying to
capture a5 pawn, check, Ke3 , a2 Ra5, Kf6, g4, Ke6 trying
to get to c5 pawn sooner who wants to push it. h4, Kd6, f5 and
finally after that move White resign so I hope you learn from this game because
the main issue of this game is all about the four moves of the bishop at e3 that
get wasted so be careful about opening preparation and it will affect the whole
game and I thank you for watching this presentation and see you again bye…kindly subscribe..
