Gibraltar: Überraschungen und souveräne Siege

von Johannes Fischer
25.01.2017 – Die erste Runde eines starken Opens, wenn Weltklassespieler gegen Amateure antreten, die manchmal 300, 400 oder mehr Elo-Punkte weniger als die Spitzenspieler auf die Waage bringen, hat ihren ganz eigenen Reiz. Es kommt zu Favoritenstürzen, in Spitzenturnieren seltenen Eröffnungen, doch meistens sieht man, was die Spitzenspieler von Amateuren unterscheidet. Auch Runde 1 des Tradewise Gibraltar Chess Festivals brachte Überraschungen und souveräne Siege. Mehr...

Die Topfavoriten spielten in Runde eins souverän: an den Brettern 1 bis 10 gaben die Favoriten nur einen halben Punkt ab. Nur Boris Gelfand kam mit Schwarz gegen IM Robert Bellin nicht über ein Remis hinaus.

Was tun gegen das Londoner System, wenn man gewinnen will?
Boris Gelfand fand keine gute Antwort.

Nigel Short (rechts) hat das Open in Gibraltar bereits drei Mal gewonnen. Doch 2017 hatte er Glück in Runde 1 gegen den über 350 Elo-Punkte schwächeren Peter Lombaers (links, mit Weiß) ein Remis zu retten.

Peter Lombaers

Weniger Glück hatte der indische Großmeister Abhijeet Gupta. Er hatte Weiß, wurde aber von Frank Buchenau überspielt.

Nxc3 10. bxc3 Qc7 {White has taken on a positional weakness. In return he has excellent compensation in the form of the strong g2 bishop, pressure down the b-file and a well centralized knight. However, it is important that White play actively creating threats. Because if Black can consolidate, he would be more than fine.} 11. Rb1 $6 (11. Nb5 Qe7 $11) (11. Be3 $5 Na6 12. Qd3 Bd7 13.

Doch in den meisten Partien setzten sich die Favoriten souverän durch. Peter Svidler gelang ein hübscher Sieg mit originellen Königs- und Damemanövern.
