Firouzja in World Rapid 2018

Post by Look » Fri Dec 28, 2018 4:23 am

Hi,



In Firouzja vs Andreikin white played Qe3 here, but black played ... d4 preventing the Qs exchange, keeping the game closed and gaining time by attacking whites Q. Instead better is:

10. Nd6+ Ke7 11. cxd5 (11.
Nxc8+ Raxc8 12. Bg2 Nd4) 11... exd5 (11... Nxd5 12. Nc4 Qb3 13. Qg5+ Kf8 14.
Na5) 12. Nxc8+ Raxc8 13. Qe3+ Qxe3 14. Bxe3

Black can attack on whites king and he has a pair of bishops. It seems to me, he should keep Queens on board and open the center. Here moves like ...d5 or ... a3 seem better:

In this position white played passive a3, even though a4 with the threat of Nb3 then a5 then Bd2 Bc3 neutralizes blacks play.

I also believe that If you give White to Komodo and Black to any Program rated around 2300 from SSDF I believe that from this starting position Komodo should get at least a draw, Therefore Carlsen vs Vokhidov 2304 should had a draw with 600 points difference in Rapid rating ==>

Firouzja is surprising a lot of Elite Blitz players like Aronian ==>

WOA 15 years old Firouzja is Number #3 in Bullet in the World, this Kid by the time he reaches 18 years in 3 more years, he will be a menace to the top 10 in Classical time control. I would like to see Bullet chess incorporated into this yearly event ==>
