A chance to break the fortress was 0.47/0] [35.g4 and Black is forced to play 35...Kg6 and I don't see how White wins but gxf5 and Qd3 are the critical moves.]

The point is the knight defends the rook, the pawn on f6 and the h6 square, while the rook defends e6 and a7. Black's king is protected, defends the knight and stays between the squares h8, h7, g7. Fort Knox is not more solid than this! 1.46/0]

till now both players have been playing very quickly. This position is very well known and has been analysed and played by almost all the Top players.] 10.Bg5 Bb7 [White has many possibilities. All are similar, many leads only to transpositions . For example, most often we get the game's position from the 11.Rc1 Nbd7 12. Qe2 move order.] 11.Qe2!? Nbd7 [I think 11...Bxc3!? should be the main line for Black. In comparison to the game, Black does not include the Rc8–Rc1 pair of moves - which I think should favour for him. 12.bxc3 Nbd7 13.Bd3 Qc7 14.c4 h6 15.Bd2 Ng4! a very typical idea and can be seen in many lines. It forces White to make an unpleasant decision. Either he must weaken the long diagonal with g3, or exchange his strong light-colored bishop. 16.Be4 Bxe4 17.Qxe4 Ngf6 with an equal position in GiriNakamura Dortmund 2011]

White has a wide range of choice between different setups. We can say, that the one with 4.e3 is one of the most popular continuation recently.] 4...0-0 5.Bd3 [5.Nge2 is the other option.] 5...d5 6.Nf3 c5 7.0-0 [Thousands of games have been played here and we still don't know, if White is better or not...This time it is Black's turn to decide, which continuation to choose.] 7...dxc4 [7...Nc6 is the most popular line at the moment.]

move...maybe the World Champion missed, that he has no e5 in the next move? We will never know. Once thing is for sure, this is a move with "dont try it at home" sign!] [15...Qd6; 15...Qc6 both moves would give Black a normal game.] 16.Qxf3 Rfe8 [probably now Anand realized that after] [16...e5 17.Bf5! not the most difficult move to blunder - winning the exchange 17...exd4 (17...Rce8 18.Qg3 all the pieces are pinned.) 18.Bxf6 Nxf6 19.Bxc8 Rxc8 20.Rfd1Âą and Black can hold only by miracle!]

very quickly played by Gelfand and I think it is a very good move. Black has to count now with 12...Bxc3 13.Rxc3! and suddenly position could become dangerous. White can continue with Ne5 followed by Rg3. Another thing, Black has no Qc7 so they need to lose time for Rc8 - which clearly not the best move to play here.]

12...Rc8 13.Bd3 [General ideas: White is planning to play on the kingside by playing Ne5 next and searching for tactical blows. Black got 2 major ideas, either to make a blockade on d5 or to play Bxc3 and then try to create pressure against the central pawns or to break them with an e5 push.] 13...Bxc3 [Anand chose the latter idea.] 14.bxc3 Qc7 15.c4 [and we reached a standard pawn structure. White got the center and the bishop pair, on the other hand Black would like to make holes in it with the e5 move. In general such structures are evaluated as a bit better for White, but it is very difficult to increase the advantage. Black's position is stable, always ready for counter-play.]

White got the bishop pair and very pleasant play. Black knights are getting nicely blocked by the White center and the move e5 is almost never working.] 17...h6 18.Bh4 Qd6 [so here we reached probably "the critical" position of the game.] 19.c5? [In my opinion a big mistake! Gelfand is going for the Queen which

15...Bxf3? [It is very hard to explain this 1239

guarantees him a "torture" of Anand for the next 30 moves, but no real winning chances.]

23...Rec8 [Of course no need to hurry with Rxd1] 24.h3 [White needs to make the first rank safer]

[19.Bg3 would have been the right choise here 19...Qe7 20.Re1 no reason to give Black any hopes for the e5, next move of White could be Rcd1, then maybe h4–h5 and Bh4 back. White should not hurry with anything and enjoy the position. Black has basically no idea how to improve and are forced to wait for Whites actions.]

24...Ne5! [following the main goal, the exchange of the bishop on h4.] 25.Qe2 Ng6! [White can not keep the bishop on the baord] 26.Bxf6 [26.Bg3 Ne4! the bishop is going to be eaten!]

If the Black pawn was on g7, both players would agree to a draw, but with a damaged pawn structure White is getting some chances. Another thing is, Black is still not having the knight on d5, so White got few "free" moves to try to prevent it]

So White is a Queen up, but of course it is easy to see, Black got very good chances for a fortress. Idea of Black: to exchange one rook, to exchange one knight for the bishop, then to put knight on d5 and rook on c7 which should guarantee a draw. Ideas of White: the major goal is to keep the bishop h4 alive. In case it is possible, Black will have big problems defending the pawn a7 with both knighs on the board only one can occupy the square d5.]

28...Rc7! [the place for the Black rook is clearly on the 7th rank! And another very important detail, Black should keep the pawn on a7, any movement of that pawn could lead to a loss of it.] 1240

29.Qb2!? [During I watched the game live, I thought: wow, what a great move by Gelfand, but immediately with the next move I got a bit disappointed - it was not Gelfands idea of what I was thinking about.] 29...Kg7 30.a4?! [30.Qb8! this was my idea 30...Rd7 31.Qc8! to force Black to block the e7 squere with the rook and then to play 31...Re7 32.g3! taking away the f4 square which could bring the knight to d5. 32...f5 33.h4 Nf8 34.Kg2 Rd7 35.a4 Re7 36.a5 Rd7 37.a6 Re7 If this position is a draw-probably yes, but it is clearly better for White to have the Black knight on f8 instead of on d5]

Black is putting the pawn on f5. Why? very simple reason. An exchange of every pawn brings Black closer to a draw, and now White got no other idea of winning than to play g4 which would mean an exchange of one pawn]

30...Ne7! [The knight is heading to its ideal position!]

34.f4 Rd7 35.Kg3 [35.g4!? would have been a better try to win the game. 35...Kg6! probably the only move (35...fxg4 36.hxg4 Kg8 37.Kg3 Rc7 38.f5 and maybe White got some chances to win the game) 36.Kg3 (36.gxf5+ exf5! followed by the next move Nf6, here White is hopeless, position is a draw) 36...Nf6! and probably also here White can not reach anything better than a draw. Black pieces are standing too stable]

31.a5 Nd5 32.a6 [Of course the pawn on a6 is standing very good, White got now the idea of Qb7, but at the moment this ideas bring nothing for White, since Black can simple start passing with the king on g7– g8.] 32...Kh7 [Black is asking White" do you want to play g4?"] 33.Qd4 [I think absolutely correct try from White, seems like after 33.g4 Black is keeping a draw by "doing nothing"]

35...Kg6 36.Qh8 Nf6 37.Qb8 h5! [Black prevented the g4 option forever.]

[33.g4 Kg7 34.Kg3 Kh7 35.Kh4 The only plan for White is to go with the King to h5 and attack the pawn h6 (35.h4 Rc3+ 36.f3 Rc7 37.f4 Rc3+ 38.Kf2 Rc7 and again White can not break through) 35...Rc3! 36.Qb7 Kg7 with a deadly threat Nf4]

38.Kh4 Kh6 [as we will see further in the game, Anand has switched to 38...Re7 which gives a draw as well] 39.Qb2 [39.g4 hxg4 40.hxg4 Nxg4 41.Qh8+ Kg6 42.Qg8+ Kh6 is just a draw]

the time trouble is over, Gelfand had a long thought here, tried to find a winning plan, but there is objective chance to score.] 41.Qc8 [It was not too late to lose the game by playing 41.Qf3 Nf6 42.Qg3+ Kh7 43.Qg5 and it seems like White is winning the h-pawn - this is correct, but by losing the h-pawn, White king gets into mating net! 43...Ne4! 44.Qxh5+ Kg7 And White cannot do anything against Rd8–Rh8! Black is winning.]

It is a big pity for the Gelfand fans, that he had played 19.c5? But it gave us a very instructive example on, how well can the R+N cooperate in endgames to create fortresses!] ½-½

Tras un juego mĂĄs o menos forzado se ha llegado a la posiciĂłn esperada tras jugar c5, las negras en principio aspiran a montar una fortaleza y las blancas tienen algunos planes como llevar el peĂłn a a6 con ideas como Bd7 luego o avanzar en el flanco de rey, lo que estĂĄ claro es que Gelfand juega a 2 resultados (ganar o tablas) sin riesgo y Anand ha de luchar por las tablas.]

[Das eigentlich 16.Qxf3 Rfe8N wĂźnschenswerte 16...e5?! ist zumindest fragwĂźrdig. Nach beispielsweise 17.Bf5 Rce8 sind 18.Qg3 oder auch 18.c5 interessante MĂśglichkeiten fĂźr WeiĂ&#x;, auf Sieg zu spielen. Einige Experten mutmaĂ&#x;ten, dass Anand dies bei 15...Lxf3 Ăźbersehen bzw. unterschätzt haben kĂśnnte.] 17.Rfd1 [Diagram

Die ewige Frage: "Wohin mit TĂźrmen?" stellte sich auch hier.]

Erst dieser Zug verlässt die oben erwähnte WM-Partie, welche sich mit 15.Tfe1 Te8 noch hätte herbeifßhren lassen. Nach dem Partiezug gibt es keine Vorgängerpartien allzu namenhafter Spieler mehr.] 15...Bxf3?! [Der Weltmeister nimmt das Duell Springerpaar gegen Läuferpaar auf. Vermutlich wird er diese Entscheidung alsbald bereut haben, denn nun steht ihm ein langer Kampf um den halben Punkt bevor.]

19.c5!? [ist interessant, letztlich aber wohl nicht optimal. WeiĂ&#x; forciert (unnĂśtig) das Geschehen.] [19.Bg3 mit klarem Positionsvorteil war eine logische und vermutlich bessere Alternative.]

Sehr viele starke GroĂ&#x;meister diskutierten Ăźber unterschiedliche Medien diese Stellung und klar war nur, dass Ăźberhaupt nichts klar ist. Die Hälfte sah eine solide schwarze Festung, die andere Hälfte sah WeiĂ&#x; per a2– a4–a5–a6 nebst Sturm am KĂśnigsflĂźgel gewinnen. Eine andere MĂśglichkeit besteht mĂśglicherweise auch darin, irgendwie den weiĂ&#x;en KĂśnig nach h5 zu fĂźhren.]
