Visualizing Endgame Outcome: Series 5

Visualizing Endgame Outcome: Series 5


Hello everyone, welcome to my YouTube
channel, today we are going to study again about the game between GM
Alexander Grischuk versus Grand Master Jan-Krzysztof Duda at the 2019 Grand
Prix Hamburg so they played again which the same opening of Queen’s indian Defense
but first we’re going to study about the Diagram A, which is an endgame problem
as you can see there are 6 pawns of white but there is an isolated pawn at
b3 while the black side there are two islands and at the Queen side there’s
two connected pawns at a7 and b6 which is an outside pass pawn,
now that would be your homework and this is exciting because this is like five
versus four pawns versus two versus one so enjoy, now we go to analyze the
Diagram B as you can see there’s knight at e5 now, let’s move Nfd7
attacking the night at e5, the previous game, the knight at e5
captured that d7 knight now the main difference is that the knight at e5 jumps to d3 which is very interesting move so now let us go to the big chessboard
to analyze the game let’s start by d4 Nf6, c4, e6, Nf3, b6 – which is
the Queen’s Indian Defense, g3, Ba6 attacking the pawn at c4, b3
protecting it Bb4 disrupting the development of white by checking,
Bd2 blocking to check, Be7 Bg2, d5 – previously they played
cxd5 and exd5 but now it’s different scenario he castle,s castles, now Ne5 that
is the Diagram B, now let us continue c6 Bc3 then Nfd7
but there’s another move Ne4 so let us continue Bb2, Nd6
trying to attack the c4, Nc3 but attacking the c4 it’s not that easy
because the bishop at g2 and knight at e5 soon will attack the c6 pawn so let
us see if f6 then Ne6, Knight takes, c takes, Na5 if
exd5 then there’s Bd5 check of course the only move is Knight a5
then dxe6, Bishop attacking the rook at a8, Rc8, now if we count the pawns
it’s three pawns up by white so it’s really an interesting game let us go back to
the position now after Nfd7, Nd3, pawn takes then Nb4 because the
knight at b4 combined with the bishop at g2 is attacking the pawn at c6 and
there’s c4 attacking the pawn at b3, at the same time, the knight at b4 has
interests of taking the bishop at a6 so let us see, pawn takes, Na6, Bishop
takes c6 attacking rook, then Rb8 there’s another move after Rb8
which is Rc8 which is interesting after Rc8, Bb7 attacking the
rook & knight, Rxc3, Knight takes rook, b2 attacking the rook, Rb1,
Qc7 attacking the bishop and the knight at c3, Nd5 attacking the
Queen & bishop, ed5, Bishop takes Knight at a6
Qc3 protecting the pawn at b2 Qa4 attacking the knight, Nf6,
Bd3, a5 – this is so interesting because
opponent’s b2 soon to be protected by Bishop at e7 via a3. It’s really
an interesting position but let us go back to the original move
so after Bc6 Rb8, axb3, Nb4, Bishop takes,
Bishop takes, rook takes a7, Nf6, e3, Rc8 attacking the c6 Bishop,
Bg2, Re8, Nd2 positioning. Rook takes rook, Bishop takes rook, Nc4 chances are because it’s opposite color
bishop if the rooks exchange the knight exchange just chances of draw but let us
see. Bf8, Qa1, b5 attacking the knight, Ne5 – this is now a great
position by white coz the knight really has a good post at e5, Qb6, Rc1,
trying to exchange in my opinion I won’t exchange this because white would be
much more stronger it would be exchanged but let’s see what happened Rook take,
Queen takes, Qa7, now.. it’s attacking, b4 I don’t know if it’s
necessary but um Bb7, check, Kg2 Qa5, Bc6 pointing at
Be8, Qa7, Be8 is so tricky move threatening Bf7 check,
Knight takes Bishop, the Nd7, Black resigns, because the knight cannot move
because there’s mate at Queen takes Bishop check, I love this game it’s so
attacking very strategical Congratulations! Grand Master Grischuk
for a fine game. I hope you enjoyed this presentation, Thank you so much and
God Bless..kindly subscribe…
