ChessBase Magazine 198 - Extra

In his first video contribution for ChessBase Magazine Extra Merijn van Delft examines the attempt of the world champion to revive the Scheveningen variation (1.e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 e6).

The crux of the matter is the Keres Attack initiated with 6.g4! Carlsen has tested the move 6...e5! at Lindores Abbey against Karjakin! The IM from the Netherlands is investigating the two variantions 7.Bb5+ (Karjakin) and 7.Nf5, also drawing on the analyses of his fellow countryman Anish Giri in CBMagazine #198.

Elisabeth Pähtz continues her video analysis of the Awerbach System (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.Be2 0-0 6.Bg5) in the King's Indian Defence. The videos are available in German only. This time White's main move 7.Qd2 is on the program. The recommendation of the German number one is the active 7…c5 and now White has the choice between 8.Nf3, 8.d5 and 8.dxc5. In two video clips, Pähtz demonstrates how Black can reach a sound position and gain the initiative. But be careful: in the sometimes sharp lines precise knowledge is required!

With 28 commented games, the “lucky bag” again offers a treasure trove. Peter Heine Nielsen e.g. comments on a Chess960 game of the world champion. Karsten Müller presents his favourite combination by Garry Kasparov, seen in Kasparov-Topalov (Wijk aan Zee 1999), "The Pearl from Wijk aan Zee". David Navarra won the 2020 Czech Championship and comments on three games from this event.

In Navara, D - Michalik, P 1-0, Black's play was tactically refuted with 23.Qb3! Bxc3 24.Bxg6! fxg6 25.d6 +!

In Stinka, J - Navara, Q 0-1 Black had seen the strong 24 ... b5! six moves before and subsequently won a endgame with opposite coloured bishops. What happens if White simply takes the pawn with 25.cxb5?

In the lucky bag you will find many other eye-catchers by Niclas Huschenbeth, Michal Krasenkow, Georg Meier, Roven Vogel and Spyridon Kapnisis.

In the “Brilliancy”, IM Georgios Souleidis introduces you to a game by one of the most creative top GMs, Daniil Dubov. At the European Team Championship 2019 against Rasmus Svane Dubov sacrificed his c4-pawn in the Declined Queen's Gambit on move eight and immediately went on to attack Svane’s king. The game ended with a king hunt over the full board to the field a3!

Last but not least: the update service delivers over 43,000 new games for your database. And as you can see, almost the entire world elite is represented again!
