The Day of Glory

Post by Kyodai » Thu Jan 17, 2013 11:07 am

It happened just the other day - the young (24y) Swede without any titel
was about to face the Grandmaster from Ukraine. Normally a very difficult
task - but this meeting was about to unleash something unexpected...

It was the day when everything was completed - the plans - the visions - the dreams...
Not even a gross mistake to spoil it all.. It was the Day of Glory..
It happened in Prague.

(for engines it might be interesting to check the slightly unusual attack with Nf5)

Exciting game. But "Gajic" doesn't sound Swedish to me. :wink:

Was he born in Sweden? Couldn't find his biography in five minutes of searching.

Well, naturally 20 ...h6? is a blunder (I can see it clearly without even checking with an engine).

But in the same way naturally when you are OTB with a lot of ideas in your mind these things can happen, even to an high ranked player.

Yes,the threat must be eliminated by taking the bishop on f5....

Again a quick glance without any chess engine aid and while working regards,

Hmm.. but what should black play instead of 20.-h6

After 20...Se7 21.Lxh7+ Kf8 22.b4 Sd7 23.Tad1 white has a clear advantage
and strong attack..

But surely not 20.-exf5? The rook on e8 is hanging..

The position is already very difficult, I think black should have played h6 a move before, at move 19 instead than Nd5.

So maybe, correcting me, the blunder is instead 19 ... Nd5? than 20 ...h6.

Sure, you are right. Analyzing the thing better I think the mistake is the move before.

I'm not sure if Mladen actually was born in Sweden. First chessgames (in Mega)
for a Swedish club was in 2006 - then he was like 17 years old.
He's anyway a clear cut amateur with no titles whatsoever (in chess)
