THE 13TH WORLDCHAMPION DISSECTS TOP GAMES OF MODERN CHESS

H O W TO D EFY THE S O F IA R U LES IN STYLE


v ccasionally there comes a game in which
both players insist on bending the rules of the
chessboard to the breaking point. The physics
of the game go from classical to quantum with
each move defying both logic and expecta
tions. This game lasts barely thirty moves and
contains enough deep forcing lines to keep a
human analyst hard at work for many months.
Even the computer strains to reach the depths
required to pulverize this stone into the sand
of perpetual check. As early as move 11 (!),
long sacrificial variations appear that end in
forced draws by repetition. Such opportuni
ties seem to come along virtually on every
move, and are avoided until at last there is no
choice but to accept the inevitable.

G a rry 's Cho ice


Garry Kasparov, the 13th World Champion, needs
no introduction: a truly great chess player, who has
tremendously influenced the development of chess
with his games, his analyses, his writings, Garry is
well known everywhere. Chess Informant has had
the privilege of hosting the fruits of his deep analytical
work for more than thirty years, and there is no doubt
that the quality o f this work has greatly enriched the
contents of this publication and chess culture
overall.
Several years after his retirement from professional
chess, we are deeply honoured to welcome Garry
back to Chess Informant! In this column, Garrys
Choice, he is annotating select games from recent
practice, in his trademark style, casting his critical
eye on the efforts of modem chess stars and mere
"mortals"!

The Sofia Rules, designed to force the players


to continue to at least to move 40, would be no
match for this game. And who could complain? If all draws were as action-packed as this one,
fans would clamor for more! The sharp cut and thrust, and abrupt conclusion, recall
Botvinniks first encounter with Alekhine, at Nottingham 1936, which ended in perpetual
check after only 20 moves. At the time, that game was considered wildly complicated which
was true back then. Today it looks almost simple, certainly compared to this game.

honorable pedigree. 51 years ago, Tal made it


his primary weapon in the World Champion
ship rematch with Botvinnik. Tal lost two
and drew three of those games but apparently
nobody blamed his sharp line of the Advance
Variation because it maintained some popu
larity. (Looking back over that 1961 match I
find encouragement in the fact that Botvinnik
was almost exactly my age today, 49, and
over double the age of his opponent. Tal won
an impressive five games in that match. But
Botvinnik won ten!)
It is worth noting that this line was Kram
niks choice when he was in a must-win situ
ation against Leko in the final game of their
2004 world championship match.
4... h6
Botvinnik went back to this move in games 18
and 20 after starting with it in game 10, then
trying 4... h5 and 4... c5 in games 14 and 16. I
can imagine showing this game to Tal and
Botvinnik, and how different their reactions
14

would be to all the sacrifices and casual regard


for order and safety. Tal, the quantum physi
cist of the chessboard, would no doubt enjoy it
and employ his favorite term, "tasty chess."
Botvinnik, on the other hand, a Newtonian,
would shake his head at how both players ig
nored the principles of the game.
Even when I was a world champion I had to
endure that head shake of Botvinniks. After
I beat Karpov in the Ruy Lopez in game 16
of our 1986 Leningrad World Champion
ship match.

Botvinnik told me, "in this game you played
like Tolush!" Invoking the famous attacking
master from Leningrad was not a compliment
coming from Botvinniks lips!

Emil is always looking for a way to compli

THE V ER S A T ILIT Y O F THE K H IG H T


f we think of the chess pieces as individual fighters, we could abstractly consider our fa
vourite game a "team sport". Indeed, the success of most strategic or tactical operations is en
sured by a collective effort, like it happens in, for instance, football matches. After all, even
such living legends as Maradona and Zidane were known as "team players".
Excessive individualism is usually criticized in football and rarely succeeds in bringing posi
tive results in chess. However, there is one speciffic piece that stands apart.
The knight s original way of jumping around is strongly reminiscent of the unnatural way of
running and explosive change of directions that characterized Mane Garrincha, widely known
as the best dribbler ever. Moreover, the knight is capable of creating weak squares in the en
emy camp and then occupying them, a versatility that beats the Brazilian s best achievements.
Indeed, Garrincha gave many decisive passes and was an outstanding header himself, despite
his low stature, but never at the same time, of course!
I believe that the first time when I understood
the multifunctionality of the knight was after
seeing the following game.
In the early 90s, I played quite a bunch of
Spanish tournaments shoulder to shoulder
with my countryman Mihai uba. This proved
an invaluable chess school for me and his ex
planations on the present game were doubt
lessly part of it.

Every new id e a is a c tu a lly


a w ell forgotten one
There is an almost unanimous opinion that, in chess as in
other fields, the beginning of the third Millenium features
an explosion of information without precedent.
To me, this seems a bit exagerated. I remember that as a
kid I found similar statements in many of the opening
monographies of the 80s, the '70s and even o f the
'50s. Believe it or not, a similar infomiatic explosion
is described in the introduction of the first edition of the
Bilgucr, the Chess Encyclopaedia of the 19th century.
There is nothing really new in life and in chess. In
every game, there comes a moment when a novelty
inevitably pops up, but one cannot be sure that the idea
behind it has not been played before.
In this column, I will try to highlight the way in which
certain strategic and tactical ideas have maintained
their actuality over the decades and sometimes centuries.
Remarkably, the modem interpretation not always is
more accurate than the classical one.
I invite you to re-discover together well forgotten ideas
from the past.

game, but in the long run the weakness of the

weakening of the e4-square as well. 19. f4

11... }b4! The central remark from ubas


confessions to me after the game was that this
method of play was described by Alekhine: the
knight provokes the weakening move a2-a3, in
order to later jump to a5 and put pressure on
the white queenside. 12. i l b l Hc8 13. H dl
He8 14. \e5 As we will see, the advanced
position of the knight will later force White
to weaken even more squares. However, at the
present time this move is necessary. [Indeed,

The situation in the centre has stabilized, but


White needs a solution against ...ic6-a5. 18.

We can summarize the consequences of the


knight jump to b4. Whites position looks
more active, but he has no clear targets yet.
At the same time, the weakness of his light
squares cannot be repaired in any way and of
fers Black good prospects in the long run.

Black has occupied one o f the weak central


squares in full comfort. White may have
hoped that, since the other knight cannot
get to c4 easily, his position would remain
holdable. 30. H dl?! \6c5!I- This simple
tactical operation is an even better plan than
the aforementioned one. It is instructive that
the knight which had indirectly provoked the
gradual deterioration of the white structure
delivers the decisive blow. 31. dc5 \c5 32.

uba did not tell me which game of Alekhine
he had in mind when making his instructive
remark, but I believe that the next one is quite
characteristic for what he meant.

This is regarded as one of Alekhines most
spectacular tactical achievements. I believe
that the whole preparatory strategic phase, in
which the knight plays an essential part, is of
no lesser interest.

At this stage of the game, the queen manoeuvre


has a purely attacking purpose. However, we
will notice that e8 is a key square in the fight
for the light squares see the 23rd move.
13. a3 Did Bogoljubov hope to build up a
queenside attack, or just simply feared the in
trusion of the enemy knight to d3 after the
preliminary ...e5-e4? The second answer would
be more suggestive for the main theme of our
article: the knight provoked the weakening
a2-a3 without even jumping to b4!
Be it as it may, the way the game went, the last
move proved an reparable weakening of the
queenside light squares. 13... # h 5 14. h4 [14.

There is no immediate danger for White on


the kingside, but his h3-knight and the bishop
are very passive, as a direct consequence of
Blacks positional attack. 19... d5! The signal
for the global plan on the light squares. 20.

A fantastic switch from one wing to another!
Because of the hanging a4-pawn, White can
not maintain his structure intact. 24. Hg2 [24.

give up control over the d5-square or let the

refrains from the obvious capture on c4, in
order not to help the enemy knight get to e5.
He reserves a more glorious fate to his versa
tile knight than just blocking on d5, sending
it forward to take part in the decisive opera

I will allow myself a short digression. When


writing the short comment on the 32rd move,
I remembered that a similar situation occured
in a game of... (what a coincidence!) M. uba!

After 32... Wb4 33. c3 # b 3 !? 34. ab3 a2 I


met uba on his way to the smoking area. A
somewhat unusual expression on his face made
me ask him about his position (we were play
ing in the same team). With a broad smile, he
answered: "I am three pieces down!"
The game eventually ended in a draw.

Black is two rooks down, but... winning! 33.

It is curious that an experienced grandmaster


like Bogoljubov fell into the same strategic trap
eight years after his game against Alekhine,
namely to the Russians predecessor on the
highest throne.

g4! Since this pawn actually comes from the
h-file we can state that this is the first of four
consecutive rook pawn moves. Not all of them
have the same objective merits, though. 15...
h6! Preventing g4-g5 with unpleasant pressure.
16. a3?! Once again, the reasons behind this
move are obscure, but its effects reparable
in the long run. In any case, it is for sure the
c6-knight that provoked (by a complicated
psychological mechanism, most likely) this
inaccuracy. 16... a6! Displaying the first
queenside ambitions. Black plans ...b6-b5.

opponent for the great Cuban in this field. 15.

Before the crucial last round of the Olympiad


the situation was the following: three teams
(China, Russia and us Armenia) were tied
for first, China was facing Ukraine, Russia
was playing Germany and we had to over
come Hungary. At this point we had better
tie-breaks, followed by Russia, so in the case
of Ukraine not losing to China, we had very
decent chances of winning the tournament.

Istanbul (ol) 2012
[By Andrei Volokitin]
This game was played in the penultimate round
of the Olympiad and its sporting significance
was enormous. Ukraine was paired against
the strong team of Azerbaijan, and my oppo
nent, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, was their top
scorer. My task was to neutralise their main
attacking force, but the circumstances were
not in my favour, as two days before I had
contracted a cold.

1. d4 I was expecting this move, as it has


been his constant preference recently.
1... 5}f6 2. c4 g6 While preparing for this
game, I spent a lot of time trying to decide on
my strategy; should I play directly for equal
ization, or choose a sharper opening, aiming
for counterplay? In the end, I decided to opt
for the second approach and the Gruenfeld
Defence, which better suits my playing style.
The downside of this decision was that Shakh
himself employs this opening with Black, and
consequently is fully aware of all its nuances.
3. f3 I realized that my opponent could choose
any of the possible systems against the Gruen
feld, so I had to prepare for practically all of
them. The one played in the game I wa re
minded of just shortly before the game.

to increase the pressure on d4 and provoke
the advance of Whites centre, with the aim
of attacking it later.

I was opting for this position when I decided


to play 22... Sd5. Black has compensation
for the piece: two pawns and an exposed

better, but in a practical game it is not easy to
convert the material advantage. At this point
I only had five minutes for the remaining
twelve moves until the time control.
29. ^ b l? A serious mistake; Shakh had proba
bly relaxed at this point and made this move
"with his hand, without much thought. In
stead, White had two promising continua

16. iLg5! The fruit of home preparation. The
engines do not understand this move at first,
but in human terms the idea is quite clear:
White creates an unpleasant pin and tries to
play against the Ag6. This motif is typically
often met in the Reti Opening. [16. >h4 h6

16... >bd7 [16... h6 17. .h4 is similar.]
17. sd2! Continuing with the plan. White
wants to support his centre with the move f3,
further restricting the black bishop. At this
point my opponent started to spend quite a lot
of time, while he had made his moves so far
quite quickly. I assume that he had underesti
mated the problems present in this unpleasant
position while preparing for the game.

with this move, because I wasnt sure I would

move has some points: White makes a deci

Blacks queenside, but then the black knights
will not really be inferior to Whites bishops.

usually employs main lines. Since I was
inclined to play for a win, I decided to opt
for the Meran, because this variation of the

n my career I have been using 1. d4 almost exclusively until 2011, when I started being fed
up with the ever-growing theory of the Slav Defence and its various branches this opening
was becoming more and more popular, and extensively analyzed. As I had experienced some
problems in Reti-type positions with the black pieces, I asked myself whether I should try
these setups with the other color as well.
In order to avoid the Slav main lines, my attention was particularly focussed on the "Reti Gam
bit", the topic of this article. It is a really ambitious line: White is ready to sacrifice the Ac4 for
a lead in development (Black will have to spend quite some time in order to defend this extra
pawn) and active positional compensation, which comprises of full control of the centre, open
lines on the queenside and a powerful bishop on g2. This concept has encouraged many play
ers to try this relatively new line, leading to a surge in its popularity. Several strong grand
masters have incorporated into their repertoire, mainly as a surprise weapon, but there are even
those, like Georgian GM Pantsulaia, who employ it regularly and with success.
This article is dedicated to one of the most exciting branches of the "Reti Gambit Accepted",
the line 7... A e 6!? 8. \g5 jLg4.1 have chosen a recent game of mine as the backbone of the ar
ticle, as this game showcases several interesting ideas, both in its course and the comments.
Objectively speaking, and after hours of painstaking analysis, I have concluded that Black is
doing fine in this branch of theory, particularly in the 11... h6 variation, but it takes strong
nerves and good tactical skills (or a perfect memory!) to meet the challenge successfully; oth
erwise, Blacks life in this line is not easy at all!
1. g3!? This starting move allows White to
prevent the Hedgehog or any other Queens

Our focus is on this highly optimistic varia

face it over the board, as it looks really dan
gerous for Black. I had some ideas, though I
had hardly analyzed this line in the depth it de
serves, but for this particular game I wasnt
expecting this line at all. This made recalling

that much, as 1 faced a novelty on move 11.

PIRC DEFENCE
Anti-King's Indian setup

his article deals with the rare anti-Kings Indian setup 1. d4 \f6 2. \f3 g6 3. g3 Ag7 4.
A g 2 00 5. 00 d6 6. 4}c3!? While hardly a popular and critical weapon against Kasparovs
old favourite, this line is occasionally adopted by many grandmasters, with good practical re
sults. I myself started playing it ever since my friend GM Yuri Drozdovskij showed me a game
of his against Sergey Zavgorodniy. It is not a common guest in my games, but on the few occa
sions that I have employed it, my results have been quite good.
What are the pros and cons of 6. ic3, compared to 6. c4? First of all, in many lines of the
Fianchetto Kings Indian the Ac4 becomes an object of attack. Secondly, White retains the op
tion of later playing c3, to limit the influence of the strong black Jlg7. Last but not least, a psy
chological factor: Kings Indian devotees are usually active players and not enticed by the
slightly worse position after 6... d5.
It may appear a bit strange to suggest Black to play 5... d6 and then 6 ... d5; however, I feel that
this is Blacks best option. Should he wish to explore other paths, he can choose 6... \bd7 or
6... c6, usually leading to the same position, or 6... ic6, which however I dont recommend.
Then a Pirc-like position arises, and here it should be pointed out that, despite all the apparent
similarities between the two openings, many Kings Indian fans have never played the Pire
Defence before. In my opinion, this detail increases the practical chances of the players who
will employ this system with White. There are, of course, some drawbacks to this approach as
well. First of all, the fight for an opening advantage is usually strongly connected with fighting
for space; 6. c4 is more constructive in this regard. Secondly, after 6... d5 Whites only reason
able plan is to prepare e2-e4, which in turn will lead to a simplification of the position. Also,
after other moves White ends up in a relative sideline of the Pire. It is up to the reader to decide
if and when the pros outweigh the cons, and make up his mind accordingly.
Overall, this line is not sharp enough to pose Black serious problems, and he has more than
one ways to obtain counterplay, but it does require accuracy of him, as well as a broader chess
education in handling various typical positions. The article is based on my game against Dan
iel Naroditsky, played in the last round of the Montral Open 2012. With 51 /S I was sole
third, one point behind the leaders Lzaro Bruzn Batista and Wesley So, and half a point
70

B07 Cl UBS
ahead of the chasing pack. A draw would obviously give me excellent chances for third place,
so I chose the system in question in an effort to play, not directly for a draw, but solidly, espe
cially considering that the early starting time of the round did not allow me to prepare for the
sharp Kings Indian lines properly.

n this article the reader can find a short overview of the 3. f3 line in the Caro-Kann Defence.
I will highlight some interesting and important games, as well as draw the readers attention to
the nuances of both Whites and Blacks play. Naturally, it is impossible to give a final assess
ment of this system, as the amount of available material is vast and the resulting play ex
tremely rich, with plenty of ideas for either side. I suppose this is also the main reason why this
3. f3 line is played more and more often, even at the highest levels: because it offers very rich
and varied play, as well as great fighting chances to both sides, in relatively unexplored posi
tions.
The reader may wonder about my studys conclusion, or some kind of "final verdict": is White
better, or is Black OK? Well, it seems to me that in most cases Black should be able to obtain a
perfectly playable position, genuinely unclear, but the resulting positions are so rich in play
and themes, in almost every single game with this line, that afford good winning prospects to
the stronger, more inspired or more creative player. And this is exactly why we play this game!
1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. f3

An important crossroad. Among Blacks sev


eral options, 3... e6 and 3... g6 are the main
moves, but alternatives are interesting and
playable as well perhaps even all of them!
Can this be possible? Well, chess is an amaz

SICILIAN DEFENCE
Alapin variation

he Alapin Variation of the Sicilian Defence, also known as simply the 2. c3 Sicilian, has
always been very popular, even at higher levels: GMs Tiviakov, Howell, Rozentalis, Stevie
and Pavasovic are few of its most devoted fans, using it with success in their games. One of its
attractions is the great variety of position types that it leads to. In modem chess it is getting
harder and harder to surprise opponents in the opening, and this is perhaps even more true for
the 2. c3 Sicilian. Still, I would like to try and do just that! This article covers a new system for
Black that has appeared in practice very recently. Its main idea is to rapidly develop the
queenside (...\c6, ...Jtf5, ...0-0-0) and quickly put pressure on the isolated pawn that may
arise on d4, while the exchange of the Af5 for the \bl is one of the key points of this line.
This system is rapidly becoming popular and could well turn out to be the main theatre of theo
retical debate in the 2. c3 Sicilian in the near future. In my opinion, Whites most critical op
tion is 6. dc5, which leads to positions typical to other, similar branches of the 2. c3 Sicilian,
with White having an extra pawn but having lost castling rights, and Black enjoying rapid de
velopment for his pieces.

he move 6... \bd7 is the current fashion in the 6. Ag5 Najdorf. Whites 6th move, arguably
his most critical option, faces Black with great practical problems, such as a multitude of ra
zor-sharp lines, where one slip is fatal, and the great depth that theoretical research has reached
in these lines; White players are generally prepared very thouroughly, turning the opening of the
game into a duel of surprise and memorization. For those who, like me (unfortunately!), can
hardly rely on their ability to recall long variations, it may be preferable to follow less travelled
paths. And, at least for the moment, some of the 6... \bd7 lines offer just that.
In this article I am going to examine the recent developments in variations where Black plays
an early ...b5, postponing or even completely renouncing the traditional ...e6. The move ...b5
can be played after 7. f4 Wc7 8. # f 3 or, even earlier, after 7. # e 2 . Naturally, such play is a lit
tle provocative; after all, Black is neglecting his kingside development and must thus be pre
pared to face furious sacrifices by his aggressive opponents. But nowadays, in the computer
era, everything is playable, as long as you know the critical positions well and your calculating
powers are well polished!

uring the last few years, the 7... Jle7 line in the Classical French has grown in popularity
and has achieved main line status, leaving 7... cd4, 7... a6 and 7... # b 6 behind. As plans in
volving 0-0-0 have not brought White satisfactory results, the first player has turned to the
continuation 9. Ae2, intending 00, in search for an antidote. Black has usually opted for a
plan with 9... a6 and 10... b5, but White seems to have come to terms with this approach, suc
ceeding in obtaining some advantage out of the opening. This, in turn, has prompted Black to
employ a different way of developing his queenside, namely with 9... b6. This plan, the subject
of the present article, has become very popular and appears to be satisfactory in practice.

The position is balanced and Black managed
to win the game. This variation is still devel

and it appears to be very difficult for White to

RUY LOPEZ
Jaenisch/Schliemann variation

n this article we shall examine the Jaenisch or Schliemann Variation of the Ruy Lopez, 3...
f5, and in particular the interesting move 4. d3. This has tended to surpass the main move 4.
\c3 in popularity, either due to the "Radjabov Variation" there (4... fe4 5. \e4 >f6), where
Black plays a pawn down but the position is much closer to a draw than a White win, or be
cause the later involves many more forcing variations and a greater theoretical learning over
head. The move 4. d3 has been employed even by the worlds leading players.
This article does not intend to argue which move is better than the other; it is clear that both
have their good and bad sides. I just wish to examine 4. d3 in some depth and offer the reader a
good grasp of its potential and nuances. With 4. d3 White supports his Ae4, strengthening his
central presence and keeping control of the d5- and f5-squares. On the other hand, after an ex
change on e4 Black acquires the open f-file for counterplay.
Overall, the resulting lines are less forcing than those occuring after 4. >c3. The main focus of
the article lies on two modem and interesting ways for Black to meet the 4. d3 line, namely 6...
d6 and 6... Jlc5 7. d3 >d4!?.
1. e4 e5 2. >f3 >c6 3. b 5 f5

4. d3 Currently in vogue, though 4. \c3 has


been played far more often.
[4. }c3 I shall not be analyzing this move,
but I do wish to explain why more and more
players have switched to 4. d3 nowadays. 4...

RUY LOPEZ

his article features my efforts to resuscitate the rare and half-forgotten 10... g6 line of the
Open Ruy Lopez. Once employed by Korchnoi, on the stage of the 1978 World Championship
match against Karpov in Baguio City, it certainly caught the audiences attention. However,
Karpovs crushing 28-move win curbed Korchnois desire to try this risky line again, and the
public followed suit.
Ever since, 10... g6 would make roughly a solitary appearance every year; statistics tell the
whole story... Only Murey, one of Korchnois seconds in Baguio City, continued to use it on
occasion perhaps a strong indication of the brains behind this lines adoption!
My personal involvement with the "Baguio Sorrow" line commenced a few years ago. Going
through the current theoretical material on the Open Ruy Lopez, with the intention to employ
it as Black, I realized that most of its variations were either too long to allow for creativity, or
too dull to keep one alert at the board. Sweet teenage memories of that ill-fated Baguio game
sprang to my mind, which prompted me to start looking for possible improvements. Was it be
fore or after I got acquainted with Jakov Murey in some tournament in Hungary, I cannot tell.
We analyzed some positions there, but definitely not 10... g6.
I can only hope that my involvement with this line has enriched it with even more mysteries
and unresolved questions. Perhaps few readers are likely to appreciate such conclusions; to
them I can only say "sorry, this is my way... ". If some day the 10... g6 line is christened the
"Baguio Sorrow" variation or, at least, the "Murey" variation, that would be the most cher
ished reward for my efforts!

ALEXANDER
I P A T O V
Y O U T H

B R E A K S

T H R O U G H

W O R LD JU N IO R CH A M PIO N
n a heated and spectacular race taking place during the last few rounds of the 2012 World
Junior Championship, under the hot summer sun of Athens, Greece, 19-year-old Ukraine-born
GM Alexander Ipatov, now representing Turkey, managed to outclass the rating favorites of
the event and win the coveted title on tie-break, thus adding his name to an illustrious list
that also hosts former World Champions Boris Spassky and Anatoly Karpov, as well as
many other famous grandmasters. This tournament victory brought along Alexanders first
ever qualification to the FIDE World Cup and crowned his decision to switch to representing
Turkey in the best possible way. Considering
his serious and responsible attitude towards
chess, one can rest assured that Alexander
Ipatov will soon become a household name
in the chess world!
Alexander was bom in Lviv, Ukraine, on the
16th day of July 1993, and was taught the ba
sics of chess by his father, who sadly passed
away recently. His mother brought him to the
local chess club at the age of 6, thus laying the
foundation of a promising career for her son.
After receiving coaching from Viktor Scherba
kov, Alexander Hermanov, Andrei Khripach,
Viktor Zheliandinov, Mikhail Kozakov and
Miodrag Perunovic throughout the years,
and having gained the IM title in the mean
time (2008), Alexander finally ended up with
his current coach, FIDE Senior Trainer and
Grandmaster Efstratios Grivas, who also hap
pens to be the coach of the Turkish national
team for several years. This cooperation soon
bore fruits, not least due to Alexanders deter
mination and strict work ethics, and he soon
obtained the grandmaster title, in 2011, as of
ficial confirmation of his undeniable progress.
The World Junior Championship is his big
gest success to date, but certainly not the only
107

RISING STARS
one! Among several noteworthy results, one
can point out his third place in the mammoth
2011 Cappelle la Grande open (with 85 GMs
out of a total of 573 participants), his shared
second places in the 2011 Nakhchivan Open
(with Z. Almasi, Vallejo and I. Sokolov) and
the 2012 Grand Europe Open, his multiple ju
nior titles in Ukraine and his nice collection of
medals of all colors from the national leagues
of Turkey, Spain, Ukraine and Catalonia.
This list is sure to grow bigger in the near
future, as Alexander seems more dedicated
to chess than ever and enjoys the meaning
ful support of the Turkish Chess Federation
more on this later. Naturally, these suc
cesses have come as a result of his continu
ally improving play when asked to single
out a few of his most memorable games,
Alexander mentions his important victory
against Grandelius at the WJCC and his games
against S. Zhigalko (Cappelle la Grande 2011),
Melkumyan (Sarajevo 2012) and Sargissian
(Valjevo 2012). Still, his strongest and most
pleasant memories are linked to the Athens
event, for which he and his trainer, GM
Grivas, approached very seriously and with restraint; the goal was not to lose any games, and
try to gather points day-by-day. In the end, his seven wins and six draws proved enough for the
gold medal!
Having been singled out as a dynamic and aggressive player during his junior years, Alexan
der has now broadened his horizons and become a more universal player he will not hesitate
to seek a slightly better endgame or, in contrast, a direct attack on the opponents king, accord
ing to circumstances. True, this newly-acquired universality cannot hide his clear preference
for Alexander Alekhine as his favorite player, but it also betrays the fact that he has judi
ciously studied the games of all world champions, as well as those of other influential chess
players, such as Akiba Rubinstein and Aron Nimzowitsch. As a product of Soviet chess cul
ture, he is also familiar with classical chess literature, such as the works of Mikhail Botvinnik,
but he also admires the modem chess stars he considers Levon Aronian an amazing player,
and is always impressed by Magnus Carlsens technique!
Alexander recently switched his allegiance to the Turkish Chess Federation, having repre
sented Spain for the last few years, after abandoning the Ukrainian federation due to lack of
support on their part. It is remarkably rare for such a young player to have already played un
der three different flags, but it seems that in Turkey he has found his personal haven, and is
greatful to the Turkish federation and its president, Ali Nihat Yazici, for their invitation. He
admits to having accepted this proposal without much thought, in view of the rapid develop
ment and expansion of the Turkish federation in all fields relevant to chess, as well as the great
popularity the sport enjoys in Turkey. Indeed, Turkey has just hosted the Chess Olympiad in
Istanbul, and next year will be the host of the World Junior Championship (where he will try
and retain his title) and the World Team Championship, where he hopes to be able to help the
Turkish team in their quest for success. Other important events in his schedule for 2013 are
the European Individual Championship, the European Team Championship and, of course,
the World Cup; a strong showing in these events is his primary chess goal right now, along
with an effort to increase his rating enough to enter the Top 100. Naturally, such ambitious
108

RISING STARS
goals require great effort in preparation
(which he does make!), but he still finds
time to learn the language of his new
homeland as quickly as possible, to enable
him to assimilate its history and culture.
Plans of moving to Turkey were tempo
rarily put on hold due to the death of his fa
ther, as he wishes to support his mother in
Ukraine, but remain a thought for the fu
ture.
So far, we have been painting the picture of
a very serious and dedicated chess player,
fully devoted to his sport. While admira
ble, such a one-sided description would
not do Alexander justice, for he is a great
fan of football in general and FC Barce
lona in particular! Indeed, he watches most of their matches on TV, or even live in the stadium,
when he is in the city at the time you read this, he will have already witnessed his first El
Classico first-hand! He never misses a chance to play football himself with friends, either on
the pitch or on his TV screen, using his Playstation, with basketball and table-tennis also at
tracting his attention occasionally. Another recent hobby of his is reading motivational and
business literature, while one should never forget that he is an avid learner of foreign lan
guages a process he probably adores even more than Barca!
Without any further ado, we hereby present you samples of Alexander Ipatovs chess:

IN MEMORIAM
GRANDMASTER SVETOZAR GLIGORlt (1923-2012)

THE FIN E OLD


GEN TLEM AN
by Josip Asik
"Finally, at this advanced age, I
found the chance to dedicate myself
to music; I am listening, playing,
even composing. Chess is very jeal
ous; when it gets hold of you, it
doesnt give you any freedom.1 These
words, spoken by an 86-year old Svetozar Gligoric in his house, in a quiet
district of Belgrade next to a large
park full of green, constantly resound
in my ears as I fondly remember this
great legend of chess, who sadly left
us this year. Bringing back to my mind
the scene that took place four years
ago, I recall the pleasant warmth of
his living room, surrounded by librar
ies with randomly placed trophies on
them, among literally thousands of
old books. While my gaze wanders
around the room, a familiar melody
fills the air as the chess m aestros
hands effortlessly travel along the
black and white keys of the piano;
hes performing "Girl from Ipanema", a mid-60s bossa-nova classic. 1 cant suppress the
thought that his great passions in life both revolve around black and white.
At the time I wasnt able to listen to his own compositions, which he proudly held secret until
his first and, unfortunately, only CD was released, a selection of songs and instrumental pieces
spanning a great variety of styles from blues to hip hop! Composing music? MYes, exactly,
he confirms, reacting to the suspicion in my eyes; "I like the same music young people like,
even hip hop!MMuch of his time then was being spent in a recording studio, preparing the ma
terial for this CD. He relates how he initially intended to include only instrumental music, but
eventually had to concede to the producers pleas to add some lyrics as well. And so, at the age
of 86, this "newcomer" enters the music scene a miracle!
The greatest part of Svetozar Gligorics life was devoted to another art, the art of chess. For
more than thirty years, starting from 1950, he was one of the strongest players outside the So
viet Union, and undoubtedly the chess star of former Yugoslavia, now dissolved into several
smaller countries. His peers remember him as an old-style gentleman, a quiet, modest, pleasant
and friendly person. He was bom in Belgrade in 1923, a fact not forgotten by local organisers,
that celebrated his 85th anniversary with a special event and a memorable rapid tournament.
116

He himself never liked such celebrations, but, as he said,


he was touched by the organizers efforts and simply
couldnt miss the occasion.
Going back eighty years in time, in the early 30s, one can
start tracing the thread of a remarkable career. There
was a coffee shop in my neighbourhood, in the heart of
Belgrade, where you could see a table with a chess
board carved on it, available for the guests. As a child,
whenever I happened to pass by, I used to attach my
face to the window and look inside. This great desire to
discover the secret of playing chess had to await its sat
isfaction for 2-3 years, until I was, at the age of 13, in
troduced to the rules of the game. Shortly afterwards,
a friend took me to the youth championship of the Bel
grade Chess Club. The atmosphere was amazing: so
many people, marble tables, everything around so lux
urious. It all looked like wonderland to me. I did play
in the tournament but, being totally inexperienced, I
failed to qualify for the final.
Gligoric had to wait a whole year for his second chance, as there were no other tournaments
for children. In the meantime, this young boy started to create his own chess library, by col
lecting newspaper clips; he also started to learn openings by himself he never had a chess
teacher. As he grew up in a poor family, and having lost his father very early, he had to cope
with the task all by himself; even his chess set was handmade by him, by painting the board on
a piece of carton from a chocolate bar package. Twelve months later, now well prepared, he
went into battle with great ambition: There were no chess clocks and each move had to be
played in ten seconds; the arbiter was counting down and announcing which side is to
move. In my last round game I delivered mate, which prompted my opponent to start cry
ing. I immediately felt sorry for him and allowed him to take back his losing blunder. But
the whole episode rather confused me and I made a mistake in turn, eventually losing the
game. He advanced to the final, but I didnt. However, in a lucky coincidence, the arbiter,
an old master, had noticed
what happened and decided
to give me a ticket to the final
as well. That was the start of
my chess career I easily pre
vailed against my opponents
and won the final.
The following two years saw
Gligoric score two sensational
results: he became the adult
champion of Belgrade at 15,
and one year later he earned
the title of National Master.
Only the winner of the Yugo
slav Amateur Championship
was entitled to such an honour,
and Gligoric conquered this hill
in Zagreb 1939, being the youn
gest participant in the event.
117

This title is not being awarded anymore


and thus only few players from former
generations hold it; but even now, in the
whole of former Yugoslavia, it is more re
spected than the contemporary Interna
tional Master title. This tournament success
earned Gligoric a place in the Yugoslav
Championship, but World War II had already
begun to overshadow Europe; the chance
was missed.
His mother passed away before the war.
Alone, without the father from his early
youth, he was taken into the family of his
close chess friend and fled Belgrade just a
few days before the Nazi commenced the
bombarding of the capital, which officially
commenced the war in Yugoslavia in 1941.
In the Montenegro mountains, far away
from his birthplace, he joined Marshall
Titos partisans and the resistance against
the occupying forces. Despite his young age,
Gligoric soon became the commander of
an anti-tank squad, owing to his education.
He never shied away from the battlefield,
but luckily was able to survive. After Bel
grade was liberated, he returned to his
hometown and started to rebuild the local
chess community and his own career. After
six years of war, I finally had a chance to play chess again. In those years, in the aftermath to the war, Yugoslav chess was led by the triumvirate of Dr Petar Trifunovic,
Vasja Pirc (who gave his name to the well-known defence) and me. Although there was a
difference of 10-15 years between me and them, everybody saw us as peers and treated us
equally. Chess used to be played in smoky playing halls, the spectators would constantly
revolve around the tables and it was always noisy the times were so different back
then!
In 1945, some Yugoslav players were invited to the first Bulgarian Championship, a tournament
Gligoric won. But back on home soil, the going was tougher: in the first two Yugoslav Cham
pionships after the war, in 1945-6, he finished second, behind Trifunovic. Two shared wins
followed, with Trifunovic in 1947 and with Pirc the next year, and then, in 1949, he finally
managed to win clear first place. After this first sole victory, Gligoric became unstoppable: in
the following years he broke all records, winning the championship eleven times.
His international breakthrough came in 1947, when he won a short (for those times!) even of
nine rounds in Warsaw, Poland, two points ahead of the Soviet participants, Smyslov and
Boleslavsky, despite being a relatively unknown player. Just before travelling to Warsaw I
got married. 1 was already working as a journalist, and my wife Danica came to know me
in that capacity; she was very surprised to find out that I am also a chess player. Those
were poor times; I remember, while preparing to travel to Poland, arming myself against
the cold winter with a military coat left behind by the western Allies - I didnt have any
thing else to wear. I beat Smyslov in a nice game and, to everyones surprise, I finished
clear first.
118

During those years Gligoric got the chance to play against several well-known names from the
past: "I never met Lasker, Capablanca or Alekhine, but I played against some of the most
reknowned figures of the first half of the 20th century. I beat Tartakower, Bernstein,
Euwe and Bogoljubov twice, I also beat Vidmar. I felt great respect for those generations.
Naturally, a significant part of my good results against them was owed to my youth - the
age difference in several of these encounters was almost 40 years. The most difficult oppo
nent from the old guard for me was Bora (Boris, Borislav) Kostic, who had won the
Hastings tournament in 1919 and had even played a match against the great Capablanca.
His signature risky attacking style, in the best of coffee-shops tradition, somehow worked
well against me. He beat me twice until I finally managed to strike back and eventually
equalize the score.
Gligoric led the Yugoslav team to first place in the Dubrovnik 1950 Chess Olympiad, an
event marred by the boycott of the USSR and other eastern countries, a part of Stalins po
litical pressure against Tito. This victory brought Yugoslavia its only Olympic gold medals
ever, and was the starting point of a golden chess era in the country. In the period since this
memorable feat and up to 1983, when he made his last appearance for the national team,
Gligoric and his teammates won 12 Olympic medals (five silver and six bronze, apart from the
inaugural gold) and six European Championship medals (five silver, one bronze). Throughout
these years, Gligoric was the connecting bond between several generations: the "triumvirate"
turned into the "golden quartet", comprising of him and youngsters Borislav Ivkov, Aleksandar Matanovic and Milan Matulovic. In the 80s, Ljubomir Ljubojevic took over the
leaders duties, with Gligoric playing on second board, below him, in his last national team
performance, in the European Team Championship of 1983 in Plovdiv, where he scored the
best individual result on his board.
"We won so many medals because we
had a very strong team; I wouldnt pos
sibly have managed all this alone. I
still regret for one stolen medal, in
the Havana Olympiad in 1966: we tied
for third place with Hungary, and all
standard tie-breaks were equal as well;
we actually had more match wins, but
anyway I felt it would be fairest to share
the medals with Hungary. However, the
Cold War was at its height, and sports
were also governed by politics. The chief
arbiter was from Czechoslovakia (edi
tors note: Jaroslav Sajtar) and, as a
true representative of the Eastern Bloc,
introduced a new rule to break the tie:
the results of the two teams on the top
two boards would be compared and
we were left with empty hands.
"One of the best moments of my career
was the gold medal for my individual
performance in the Munich Olympiad
in 1958. 1 played on first board and
scored 12/15, bettering Botvinniks re
sult. Years later, Petrosian told me that
119

nobody in the Soviet team was willing to play me; neither Botvinnik, nor Smyslov. The task
was eventually given to Keres, with the game ending in a draw after a tough fight. At the
time I hadn't realized that they felt so uncomfortable to face me.
1 had very good results in the late 50s. 1 won the Piatigorsky Cup in Dallas, in 1957,
along with Reshevsky. In the same year, I played excellently in the traditional USSR Yu
goslavia match, scoring 6/8.1 recall that, when I was leaving for home, a young Korchnoi
came to the Leningrad railway station to tell me that he will prepare to take revenge for
his only loss in this match! He did achieve this later, three times in a row I think, before
my turn to win would come again.
The Portoroz Interzonal Tournament in 1958 remained in history for several reasons:
the victory of young Mikhail Tal (who was then on a meteoric rise all the way to the
world champion's crown), the competitive tragedy of Bronstein, Fischers first tour
nament appearance in Europe. I played Fischer in the last round; it was a draw in the
end, but he kept playing until a result would be confirmed in the famous game between
Bronstein and Cardoso. When
Bronstein lost, Fischer imme
diately offered a draw, in this
way securing qualification to
the Candidates. As for my
self, I finished second, half a
point behind Tal. One lesson
I learned in this tournament
is that, when your opponent
is in time trouble, it doesn't
mean that the same applies to
you. I had a winning position
against Fridrik Olafsson, but 1
started playing fast in his time
trouble; as a result, I missed a
winning move four times, and
in the end I even lost the game.
This game practically ended
my hopes of overtaking Tal.
1 savour very fond memories of two exotic places, Mar del Plata and Sousse. In the
strong tournament of Mar del Plata in 1953,1 scored an exceptional amount of points 16/19 - and also happened to invent a new plan in the King's Indian Defence. 1 played this
opening for 25 years, starting from my 1952 win against Geller in Stockholm. The plan
consisted of the now standard manoeuvre ...H f7,...Lf8, ...Sg7, followed by the advance of
the g-pawn, and was introduced to practice in my wins against the leading Argentinian
grandmasters Najdorf and Eliskases, in that tournament. The name 'Mar del Plata Vari
ation' stuck, depriving me of the joy of attaching my own name to this line, just like
Rubinstein and Korchnoi failed to christen the Carlsbad and Meran variations respec
tively. As for the 1967 Sousse Interzonal, I shared second place with Korchnoi and Geller,
behind Larsen; this was a great result, because 1 wasnt considered among the favour
ites. By the way, the victory against Najdorf was of special significance; one year earlier,
Gligoric had lost a drawn position against him, when he got tricked by Najdorf s antics (he
pretended to have overlooked a tactical detail) and fell into a trap Gligoric himself remem
bers this incident as "childish behavior, but sympathetic in its own way. After sweet re
venge in Mar del Plata, all their subsequent encounters ended in a draw.
120

Gligoric won four of the six Zonal tournaments he participated in, during his World Champi
onship campaigns. Out of the eight Interzonals of his career, he succeeded in reaching the next
step three times: twice the Candidates Tournament, and once a quarterfinal Candidates match
against Tal, in Belgrade 1968. It is true that a player of his stature could well aspire to greater
heights, but fate decided otherwise.
"I was honoured to meet Queen Elisabeth during her visit to Yugoslavia in 1972. She was
very charming and told me that 1 should be a British citizen, considering my multiple and
very successful performances in Britain; I think I even held a record for the highest num
ber of appearances in Hastings, fifteen times from 1951 till 1973/4. Jon Speelman later
broke this record, but it was easier for him, hes a local! Anyway, there were big crowds at
the Queens reception, and I hid myself in the third row of seats, as 1 am not a fan of such
celebrations. Her Majesty was escorted by Mr. Eden, the British ambassador to Yugosla
via at the time; it was perhaps after his advice that she came straight to me, and said these
memorable words: you have won so many times in England, that maybe you should be our
citizen!
"The Hastings tournament was convenient for me, because it usually took place around
New Years Day, which meant that I had something to do during the holidays. I really miss
the long walks along the Hastings beach; they were very relaxing, despite the strong
winds and the cold unusual for us southerners. In 2002 I met the ambassador of the
United Kingdom to Belgrade, Mr. Charles Crawford, on his own request; being a chess
enthusiast himself, he mentioned how he used to support me and watch my games in
Hastings as a young boy.
As to the eternal question of who the best player in the history of chess was, there were no
doubts in Gligorics mind: Bobby Fischer. There has never been a player so clearly above
his contemporaries as Fischer was in his best years. Even Kasparov has admitted this,
even though he himself could lay a serious claim to this title. And what about the modem
era? 1 am truly impressed with the width of chess creativity that can be seen in the games
of todays leading players. I guess it has to be this way, as most openings have now been
very deeply researched, so one really needs a special touch in order to win. Just consider
this idea of Cheparinov, that helped Topalov to beat Kramnik in Wijk aan Zee (2008). I
still believe in the human approach, with the computer used just to check if something is
corrector not.
"Chess is getting younger
and younger, but 1 am still
surprised to see grand
masters at the age of 13-14.
Young people have a lot of
energy, strong memory and
the opportunity to increase
their knowledge much faster
than older generations, who
didnt have the help of com
puters. It was amazing for
me to see how a very young
Magnus Carlsen managed
to knock down the great
Kramnik, also in Wijk aan
Zee; even more impressive is
that it occurred in the Eng-

Sll,lmar GllKri, anjj0sip ,lilk


121

lish Opening, where Kramnik has shown a number of original and strong ideas. These
young players, like Carlsen, Karjakin, Radjabov, they play very well, even in difficult
endgames that require a lot of patience; it is clear that they are growing very quickly.
Anand, Kramnik, Ivanchuk, Topalov, they are still members of the elite, but I can see that
they are getting tired of long preparation sessions and non-stop tournaments. Kasparov
could have prolonged his career, but he decided otherwise. I have particular fondness for
Radjabovs play; he is faithful to some openings which 1 used for decades, such as the
Kings Indian Defence and the Ruy Lopez, and I can see that he has deep understanding
of them. Of course, I never played against him or any other of these youngsters so my
judgment is solely based on examining their games.
It takes a remarkable person to pursue a new, totally different career at this advanced age, as
Svetozar Gligoric decided to do when turning to music, while still remaining devoted to his
greatest love, chess. To summarize his immense contribution to chess, and even music, in just
a few pages would be impossible, even more so because what "Gliga" meant for us, for Serbia,
for former Yugoslavia, for chess goes far beyond what words can describe. And, thinking back
to the long life and career of Svetozar Gligoric, the brightest star in the sky of a chess-loving
nation, one can rest assured that his memory will live forever.

LOGICAL DOUBLINGS
he Encyclopedia o f Chess Problems recently published by Chess
Informant comprises the knowledge cumulated during the 13 centuries
long history of chess composition. The encyclopedic presentation
(i.e. in alphabetic order) of entries that provides quick access to
desired information is not ideal for systematic study, especially by a
newcomer. For that reason, I decided to use this column, in next
several issues of Chess Informant, to present some important and
interesting topics in a tutorial-like style.
As I see this column as a chance to bring the chess composition closer
to chess players who have not had much contact with this branch of
their beloved game, it seems appropriate to start with a genuine chess
motif, characterized by idea to double the power of two friendly
long-range pieces along the same line or diagonal. The common
feature of themes you are about to see is that doubling is preceded by a
preparatory move along the thematic line which ensures that two pieces eventually line up
properly. Thus, this will be also a small introduction to the basic concepts of Critical play and
Logical combinations.
There are two kinds of combinations: the Intu
itive combination, which may be perceived
only as a whole, in a flash of intuitive insight, as
it were; and the Logical combination, which
must be deduced step by step from its compo
nent parts, and its rational sequence of moves.

1. M . V U K E V k
Mat Plus 1996

In No.l the key l. c l! brings the white


queen behind two white line-movers, threat
ening 2 .ilf4 + <^>:f6 3.ile5+! <&:e5 4 .# f4 ^ .
Although this looks like a doubling, this is
in fact a simple ambush followed by elimi
nation of white passive power (i.e. ild2).
The same scenario is repeated in two thematic
variations: l...^ :f 6 2 .ilg 5 + ^ g 7 3.ilf6+
and l...& :d6 2.Hc6+ <>d7 3.Hd6+ (2...<&e5
3 .#c5+ ). What we see here is a triple pre
sentation of the identical intuitive combina
tion with a straightforward idea of clearing
the way for the white queen by getting rid of
the obstacles (ild 2 or Hc2) which stand on
her way.
Logical combination consists of two parts:
(1) the main plan which, however, cannot
be executed immediately due to some defect;
and (2) the fore-plan, a preparatory maneu
ver which is needed to remedy this defect. In
case of logical doublings one thematic piece
already stands on the thematic line, while the

302

PROBLEMS
other is yet to arrive there along another line.
The intersection of these two lines is called a
critical square. The main whites plan is to
bring this second piece to the thematic line,
but the piece which is already on the line is
initially on the wrong side of the critical square
and would interfere with the other piece.
Therefore it must first move anti-critically,
across the critical square, and that is the
fore-plan of our logical combination which
will make the main plan possible.
For your information, an Anti-critical move
traverses the cutting-point (or critical square)
in order to avoid later interference. Opposite, a
Critical move traverses the critical square in
order to allow subsequent interference.

What elevates this miniature to something


more than just being a theoretical work is a
beautiful side-variation. After l...a5 the dou
bling is not effective any more: 2 .#g4? a6!
and the black king escapes. Looks like black
defended himself, but here comes a bolt out of
the blue: 2.#a6+!! <>:a6 3.iLc8:. Spectacu
lar!

White plan in No.2 is to double the power


of the queen and bishop along the h3-c8
diagonal, but immediate l. g4? leads no
where. So the bishop has to be first displaced
to a better spot: l.jLh3! threatening (e.g. af
ter I...* c 7 ) 2 .# g 4 &d8 3 .# d 7 ^ . This type
of doubling, where the weaker piece first
plays anti-critically backwards and then the
stronger piece comes in front of it, is called
Turton Doubling . It has been named
after the British composer Henry Turton
(1832-1881).

The chess problem theory distinguishes be


tween six types of such logical doublings, de
pending on the direction of the anti-critical
introduction (i.e. whether it goes towards the
object of action or away of it) and of the type
and order of the pieces involved. Normally
one would expect that stronger piece will
eventually be in the front of the weaker one.
However, sometimes it is better to have the
weaker piece ahead, either in order to save
the stronger one alive, or to avoid the damage
(typically a stalemate) that may be caused
by its strength. In No.3 the white queen first
goes anti-critically backwards, l . # g l ! , and
then the bishop comes in front of her,
2 .ilf2 , so that after 3 .il:b 6 }:b6 the white
queen is still there to mate from c5. This
paradoxical form of theme is appropriately
called Loyd-Turton doubling, after the
19th century Puzzle King Samuel Loyd
(1830-1914).

4 . E. B R U N N ER
Akademische Monatshefte fr Schach

The third and perhaps even more paradoxical


form of doubling involves two pieces of the
same kind, which nevertheless must be aligned
properly. In No.4 white obviously must imme
diately move the rook from c4 to release black
from the stalemate, but he must do it very care
fully. If l.Hf4? <^>:c5 2.Hgg4 black king goes
back 2...<^>c6! and now the Hf4 stands in the
way of his colleague on g4 (3.2c4+ <^>d7!).
Therefore the rook must go anti-critically:
1.2h4! <^?:c5 2.2gg4 <^?c6(c6) and now the
good rook can re-open the bishops line
and mate with 3.Sc4^. This type is known as
Brunner-Turton doubling, after the Swiss
composer Erich Brunner (1885-1938).

Unlike in preceding three examples where the


supporting piece is on thematic line and the ac
tion piece is yet to arrive in front of it, in No.5
the action piece (queen) is already on thematic
line and the supporting one (bishop) will arrive
behind it. It looks like a good idea to play 1.ildl
and after e.g. I...^ g 8 2.ilc2 with 3.#h7^.
The bishop goes backwards to take the posi
tion behind the queen, but instead of doing it
along the thematic line it travels along the line
parallel to it. The bishop plays anti-critically
around the critical square (d3), thus mak
ing an anti-peri-critical maneuver (Greek
peri= about, around). The combination
(which is, by the way, called the Peri-Turton
doubling) is, however, only a try which fails
after l...e2! 2.ilc2 e l# + . The correct way to
line-up the queen and bishop is l.f5! e2
2.ile4 e l # 3.h7^. The queen first crosses the
critical square (e4) by moving forward (i.e. to
wards the object of action) and then arrives the
bishop to support her. This type of doubling,
prepared by an anti-critical move (forward) of
the action-piece, is called Zepler-Turton dou
bling or simply Zepler doubling, after the
British composer Erich Zepler (1898-1980).

As you may have guessed, there are two more


types of Zepler doubling. The combination
in No.6 starts after the introduction 1.<^>b2! b5
(not l.^ c 2 ? b5! and the pawn will give a
check on blacks 4th move). White cannot ex
ecute his main plan - to double the queen and

PROBLEMS
rook on the 5th rank - before the rook moves
anti-critically 2.Hf5! b4 and after inserted
3.#h2+ Hh3 the queen comes behind it 4.#e5!
with 5.Sh5^. If 4...2h2+ 4.#:h2^ (thats why
the white king escaped from the 1st rank).
Like in the Loyd-Turton doubling the stron
ger piece arrived to support the weaker one
from behind, hence this type is known as
Loyd-Zepler doubling".

The third type which involves pieces of the
same strength, called the Brunner-Zepler
doubling", is clearly shown in No.6. Immediate
1.Heg2? fails to l...il:e4! and the rook in the
front is pinned. Therefore l.Hg3! with threat
2.Heg2 A:e4 3.Hg8^ (if l...!,:e4 2.H:e4 and
3.He8^>.

The six types of logical doublings have been,


for the sake of clarity, illustrated with relatively
simple examples. No.8 is more advanced com
position which combines four different themes,
three of which are our logical doublings. The
meaning of the zugzwang creating key 1.He8!
varies depending on the black defence. After
l...cl4^ it is an anti-critical move backwards
that prepares Turton doubling with 2.#e7!
3 .# e2 ^ , as it is after l ...c l # (or 1...2cl),
but this time for an incidental Brunner-Turton
doubling with 2.Sce5 and 3.Sel^=. Inciden
tal because this is not quite a logical doubling
as there is actually no need for the preparatory
anti-critical move - the doubling would be
equally effective if the rook remained on e3.
After l...<&cl white continues 2.Sd8 d l # +
3 . ^ ! ^ - a Peri-Turton doubling, just like
the one weve seen in a try-play of No.5. This
time the rook makes an anti-peri-critical ma
neuver. Finally, after l...c lil we realize that
instead of avoiding an interference the first
move enabled it: 2.ile4! ^ e 2 3.iLc2^. As far
as this variation is concerned the key is a crit
ical move, the introduction to arguably the
most spectacular chess problem idea, the In
dian theme, which will be more thoroughly
discussed in the next issue.
Theoretical discussions are often monotonous
and many may find them boring, but if you are
still reading these lines I guess youre curious
enough to learn a little bit more.
All types of doubling described so far are
conceived by white and carried out to his ad
vantage with his own pieces. This type of
combination is called a direct combination"
with idea in attack with white pieces. When
the same type of combination is executed by
black we are talking about the idea in de
fence with black pieces, but here we will
stick only to combinations initiated by white.
A combination can also be initiated by one
and (unwillingly) executed by the other side,
in which case it is an indirect combina
tion. Indirect combination initiated by white
and carried out with black pieces is called
Idea in attack with black pieces. In indirect
combination, which is always harmful for the
side that performs it, the logical doubling can
be implemented as blacks attempt to defend.
305

PROBLEMS
White forces black to revert his action and
perform the Anti-doubling.

9 . E. Z E P LER
Deutsches Wochenschach 1923

Loyd-Turton doubling. White compels black


to reversal of this plan by forcing the queens
critical move forward, so what we see here is
actually an Anti-Loyd-Turton doubling", or
antiform of Loyd-Turton doubling.

10. E. Z E P L ER
Kongressbuch Teplitz-Schonau 1922

The main plan in No.9 is l.Hh4? with idea


2.ile4+ :e4 3.f:e4^. Black parries it with
1...2b4! 2.Jle4+ S:e4 3.f:e4+ #:e4+ ! and
white cannot mate on his 5th move. Therefore
white forces the black queen ahead: l.ilb7!
(2.A c 8^) c4 and now after 2.Sh4! 2b4
3.ile4+ # :e 4 4.f:e4+ 2:e4 the white king is
not in check, so 5.g4^. The play of black looks
like a black Zepler doubling, similar to the
white one weve seen in No.5, but theres the
rub!. The side which performs the doubling
combination does it to its own advantage, and
here we see something quite opposite. The
black queen is initially at the right side of the
critical square, so we can assume that she has
just moved anti-critically backwards along
the 4th rank to parry the threat 2h4 etc. In
other words black is trying to defend with a

No. 10 follows the similar script. The main plan


1 .Hb4? #f4 ! 2.c7+ A:c7 3.b:c7+ W :cl 4.^c6+
#:c6! fails because eventually the stronger
black piece cames to c7. Here we can assume
that previously black played anti-critically
Jlh2(g3)-e5, intending to defend himself with
the Loyd-Zepler doubling. White must de
coy the black bishop back with l.ilg3! Jl:g3
(critical move!) and now he can safely con
duct his main plan: 2.2b4! # f 4 3.c7+ W'-cl
4.b:c7+ il:c7 5.)c6:. Again it looks like a
black Turton doubling, but since the combi
nation is harmful for the side which performs
it (black) it is in fact an Anti Loyd-Zepler
doubling".
