  • 1. (1) Anderssen,Adolf - Mayet,Carl [C52] Barmen IT Masters-A Barmen (8), 1905Berlin m1 Berlin, 1851 [Reti,R/Schluricke][Eliskases/Schluricke] STRONG SQUARES STARKE FELDER 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 f5 The pawn formatio n which Black has chosen here (d5 / e6 / f5),1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.b4 This opening with its pawn sacrifice, the Evans-Gambit", was named after an English ships and which he will complete on the next move with ...c6, is known as the Stonewall setup and is used not only by Black but often withcaptain, who introduced it about 1840. It is based on the idea of achieving a lead in development and in any case setting up a strong pawn reversed colours (d4 / e3 / f4 and then c3). The purpose is plausible: the creation of a strong outpost for the knight on e4 (or e5 for White),centre. Openings of this sort are called gambits, from the Italian "dare un gambetto" (to trip someone up). At one point they were the meat the preparation of a possible attack on the castled position with a secure centre and possibly ...g7-g5 (or g2-g4 for White). The actualand drink of chess - at a time when all play was aimed at either mate or achieving an overwhelming advantage. Even today when they are weakness of the Stonewall formation ist not so interesting but is strongly felt in this game. The queens bishop remains even more locked innot so frequently played, they are still a dangerous weapon in the hands of an inventive attacking player. Bei dieser Eröffnung, dem behind its own pawn chain than is usually the case when defending against the Queens Gambit. This bad black bishop is the important"Evans-Gambit", benannt nach einem englischen Seekapitän, der sie um etwa 1840 herum aufgebracht hat, treffen wir ein Bauernopfer an. distinguishing feature of the present game. The use of the Stonewall formation for White has the advantage compared to Blacks StonewallEs beruht auf dem Gedanken, einen Vorsprung in der Entwicklung zu erreichen und sich auf jeden Fall ein starkes Bauernzentrum zu that unlike Black White can find the time to develop his queens bishop before completing the pawn chain on squares of its colour. Die vonbilden. Eröffnungen dieser Art nennt man "Gambite", eine Bezeichnung die vom italienischen "dare un gambetto" (ein Bein stellen) Schwarz hier gewählte Bauernformation d5/e6/f5, welche im nächsten Zuge durch c6 vervollständigt wird, hat die Bezeichnung Stonewall-herrührt. Sie waren einstmals, d.h. zu Zeiten, in denen man nur darauf spielte, entweder zu siegen oder einer Übermacht zu erliegen, gang Aufstellung und wird nicht nur vom Nachziehenden, sondern analog öfters auch im Anzuge gespielt (Bauernformation d4/e3/f4 nebst c3).und gäbe. Heute hingegen werden sie nur noch selten gespielt, sie sind aber in den Händen eines erfindungsreichen Angriffsspielers immer Der Zweck ist einleuchtend: Schaffung eines starken Springerstützpunktes auf e4 (bzw. im Anzuge auf e5), Vorbereitung eines eventuellennoch eine scharfe Waffe. 4...Bxb4 5.c3 Ba5 6.d4 exd4 7.0–0 d3 The continuation he has chosen is not better that the first one and Rochadeangriffs bei gesichertem Zentrum mit gelegentlichem ...g7-g5 (bzw. g2-g4 mit Weiss). Die wesentliche Schwäche der Stonewall-without doubt weaker than the second one since it neither achieves anything concrete nor aoes it advance his development. Die von ihm Formation ist nicht so einleuchtend, macht sich aber in der Partie stark fühlbar. Sie besteht darin, dass der Damenläufer hinter der eigenengewählte Fortsetzung ist jedoch nicht besser als die erste und zweifellos schwächer als die zweite, denn weder bringt sie was ein, noch Bauernkette noch mehr eingesperrt bleibt, als es sonst in der Verteidigung des Damengambits der Fall zu sein pflegt. Dieser schlechtefördert sie die Entwicklung. [Mayet was well aware that after Es war Mayet gut bekannt, dass Weiss nach 7...dxc3 White can bring about a Damenläufer ist das wesentlichste Merkmal der vorliegenden Partie. Die Anwendung der Stonewall-Formation im Anzuge hat gegenüberpowerful attack with mit 8.Qb3 Qf6 9.e5 einen mächtigen Angriff in die Wege leiten kann.; After Nach 7...d6 8.cxd4 Bb6 9.Nc3 White has des schwarzen Stonewalls den Vorteil, dass Weiss - im Gegensatz zur schwarzen Aufstellung - Zeit findet, seinen Damenläufer vor dera strong, mobile pawn centre. besitzt Weiss ein starkes, bewegliches Bauernzentrum.] 8.Ng5 Nh6 9.e5 Nxe5?! And a knight is lost... Schließung der gleichfarbigen Bauernkette zu entwickeln. 4.Nf3 c6 5.Bf4 With this move White immediately begins the struggle for theeven if he gets three pawns in return. Und darauf geht, wenn auch für drei Bauern, gar ein Springer verloren. 10.Re1 Qe7 11.f4! Bb6+ e5-square. Damit nimmt Weiss sofort den Kampf um das Feld e5 auf. [5.e3 Bd6 6.Bd2 Nf6 7.Qc2 Ne4 8.Be2 Nd7= Maroczy,G-John,W/From now on he has to bank on the strength of the three pawns he got for his piece. But since the strength of the pawns is not evident in Barmen 1905] 5...Bd6 Black offers to exchange his good bishop in the hope, after 6.Bxd6 Qxd6 and ...Nd7 soon ...e6-e5, of managing tothis sort of position but comes to the fore only in simplified positions, the prospect is not all that rosy. This explanation tells us the goals of free his queens bishop. Schwarz bietet den Abtausch seines guten Läufers an in der Hoffnung, nach 6.Bxd6 Qxd6 mit Nd7 bald ...e6-e5the protagonists. Anderssen will try to bring about a decision by a violent attack since he has an extra piece to play with. Mayet on the und damit die Befreiung seines Damenläufers durchzusetzen. [5...Nf6 6.e3 Be7 7.Bd3 0–0 8.Qc2 Ne4 Otherwise cxd5 could be unpleasant.other hand will aim for multiple exchanges and at the same time will have to secure the position of his king as best he can. Von nun an (8...Nbd7 9.cxd5 cxd5) 9.g4! Qa5 10.gxf5 exf5 11.cxd5 cxd5 12.Ke2 Novikov,I-Dreev,A/ Uzhgorod1987] 6.e3! This prevents Blacksmuss er auf die Kraft der drei Bauern hoffen, die er für die Figur erhält. Doch da die Bauern ihren vollen Wert nicht in einer Stellung wie intention. If Black now exchanges on f4, then after exf4 the e5-square is permanently in the possession of White. In addition White willdieser, sondern erst in vereinfachten Stellungen erhalten, ist diese Aussicht wenig beruhigend. Aus der vorangegangenen Erklärung manage to exert pressure on e5 down the open e-file and also against the backward e6-pawn. [6.Bxd6 Qxd6] 6...Nf6 7.Bd3 Qc7 Black isergeben sich bereits die Ziele der beiden Streitenden. Anderssen wird es darauf anlegen, die Entscheidung in einem heftigen Angriff hoping with this move to force Bxd6, but Schlechter sticks to his strategic plan. Schwarz möchte so Bxd6 erzwingen, aber Schlechter hältherbeizuführen, den er mit einer Figur mehr spielen kann. Mayet wird dagegen einen mehrfachen Abtausch anstreben und zugleich seine an seiner Strategie fest. 8.g3! 0–0 9.0–0 Ne4 A good post for the knight, but not actually a strong square, since White is still able toKönigsstellung so gut wie möglich sichern müssen. [Possibly Mayet had overlooked that after Möglicherweise hatte Mayet übersehen, play f2-f3. Ein guter Springerposten, aber kein eigentliches starkes Feld, da Weiss ja noch den Zug f2-f3 zur Verfügung hat. 10.Qb3 Anddass er nach 11...Qc5+ 12.Kh1 Qxc4? 13.Rxe5+ he either loses material or is mated: entweder Material verliert, oder Matt wird: After now White threatens 11. cxd5. The reply 11...cxd5 is impossible because it would lose a piece to 12.

Das war aber jetzt der Fall geworden, denn Schwarz drohte nicht weniger als 15...Nxd3, 16.Rxe7 Ndf2+, 13.Nb5 Black loses his patience and does White the favour of opening the e-file with this exchange. In Anbetracht der Drohung 12.cxd417.Nxf2 Nxf2, 18.Kg1 Nxd1+ mit Abschüttelung der Fesselstellung und einem gewonnenem Spiel. [15.Bd2?? Nxd3 16.Rxe7 Ndf2+ nebst 13.Nb5 verliert Schwarz die Geduld und tut Weiss den Gefallen, ihm durch diesen Abtausch die e-Linie zu öffnen. 12.exf4 Qf717.Nxf2 Nxf2+ 18.Kg1 Nxd1+–+; 15.Bc2 Nf2+ 16.Nxf2 Bxf2 17.Re4 (17.Re2 Bg4) 17...Bf5³] 15...Nxe5 16.Nf4 c6 17.Nd2 g5?! By 13.Ne5 Unlike e4 - see note to move 9 - this is a permanently strong square. We have reached a typical position in which Black, who onlyweakening his king position, Mayet is doing exactly the reverse of what he should. Indem Mayet seine Königsstellung schwächt, tut er has his weak bishop left, is weak on the dark squares. Im Gegensatz zu e4 - siehe Anmerkung zum 9.Zuge - ist dies ein dauernd starkergerade das Gegenteil dessen, was er tun sollte. 18.Qh5 f5?? This new mistake is the final straw. Dieser neue Fehler schlägt dem Fass den Punkt. Überhaupt haben wir eine typische Stellung erreicht, in welcher Schwarz, der nur noch den schlechteren Läufer besitzt, auf denBoden aus. [Black should have overprotected his knight on e5 with Schwarz hätte seinen Springer auf e5 mit ¹18...f6 We will soon see schwarzen Feldern schwach ist. 13...Qe7 You would expect Schlechter to drive the black knight away from its excellent outpost by f2-f3why. überdecken müssen. Warum, das wird man gleich sehen.] 19.Bc4+! Now White is even ready to give back a piece for three pawns. in order to achieve uncontested control of the e-file. So the exchange which follows seems all the more surprising at first sight. But afterBut only because he will be clearly winning after the exchanges. Jetzt ist sogar Weiss dazu bereit, eine Figur für drei Bauern herzugeben. move 15 one sees how White has achieved his aim of clearing the e-file even better and in doing so got rid of his doubled pawns. Since aDas aber nur deshalb, weil er nach der Abwicklung klar auf Gewinn steht. 19...Kg7 Mayet hardly has any defence left and chooses the similar procedure can often be used (but is in no way obvious unless it has been seen before hand) you should take good care to assimilatebest of the remaining possibilities. Check out the variations: Mayet kann sich kaum noch wehren und wählt die beste der verbliebenen it. Man würde erwarten, dass Schlechter daran gehen wird, mit f2-f3 den schwarzen Springer von seinem ausgezeichneten Platz zuMöglichkeiten. Man prüfe folgende Varianten: [19...d5 20.Nxd5 cxd5 21.Bxd5+ Kh8 22.Nf3 Bc7 23.Bxg5 ¹Qg7 a) After Auf 23...Qd6 vertreiben, um so die unbestrittene Herrschaft über die e-Linie zu erhalten.

Tatsächlich, wenn man sich die Siege Smyslovs auf dem Höhepunkt seiner Karriere anschaut, ist Glauben Sie mir, die Qualität der Partien war sehr hoch. Es war ergreifend, zu sehen, wie sehr Reshevsky das Schachspiel genoß - seineman verblüfft, wie wenig Widerstand durch die Gegner geleistet wurde.

"Ich mache40 gute Züge, und wenn du das ebenfalls tut, ist die Partie remis" - das war angeblich das Motto von Smyslov. Aber seine Spielstrategie (9) Spassky,Boris V - Geller,Efim P [B25]setzte sich trotzdem durch. Nur Botvinniks eiserner Charakter konnte ihr widerstehen. Die drei Wettkämpfe - der größte Zweikampf vor Candidates qf4 Sukhumi (6), 1968der Karpov-Kasparov-Saga - endeten 12:12 für Botvinnik (1954), 12.5:9.5 für Smyslov (1957) und 12.5–10.5 für Botvinnik (1958). Die [Polugaevsky]folgende Partie ist ein typisches Beispiel für die Reinheit des Smyslov-Stils, das Opfer war einer der stärksten westlichen Spieler jener In der folgenden Partie entwarf Spassky einen breiten, strategischen Plan in der geschlossenen Variante der Sizilianischen Verteidigung.

Perhaps Black has a draw somewhere in thisbishop, he must use his central pawns to maintain some light-squared control.
