ETCC 02: Russian Disaster

11/10/2013 – The European Team Championship has started with a surprising result in the open section: Turkey was able to defeat Russia despite the considerable rating gap in all boards. Solak took down Grischuk in a strange game while the other boards ended in a draw. As if that was not enough, Russia also lost in the women's section to Israel. Full report and analysis of the debacle.

You might remember that there was a similar sounding event that happened only recently, the European Club Championship, but the events are certainly different as the Club Championship allows players from outside Europe to compete while the European Team Championship is a battle between different nations. The ETCC will be held in Warsaw, Poland from November 7th - November 18th. The event is a team swiss played in 11 rounds.

Open Section

The big story of today's tournament is of course Turkey's victory over Russia. Despite the fact that Turkey fields four strong grandmasters in its lineup, none of them come close to the league that the Russian team plays in. On paper it would seem easy to say Russia should have won with a comfortable lead, but instead they were in the receiving end of a nasty surprise.

Things did not start out smoothly for Russia as Ipatov easily held Svidler to a draw with Black. Andreikin also quickly drew, although his game made more sense as he was Black in this game himself. Tomashevsky was unable to create much of an advantage but had an equal game against Yilmaz. The true horror happened in board one:

[Event "19th European Teams"] [Site "Warsaw POL"] [Date "2013.11.09"] [Round "2.1"] [White "Solak, Dragan"] [Black "Grischuk, Alexander"] [Result "1-0"] [ECO "B30"] [WhiteElo "2618"] [BlackElo "2785"] [Annotator "Ramirez Alvarez, Alejandro"] [PlyCount "73"] [EventDate "2013.11.08"] [WhiteTeam "TURKEY"] [BlackTeam "RUSSIA"] [WhiteTeamCountry "TUR"] [BlackTeamCountry "RUS"] 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 e6 4. Bxc6 bxc6 5. d3 {This way of handling the Rossolimo leads to very complex game. Black always has the pair of bishops but can never really seem to use it because of the crippled pawn structure while White must find a useful plan.} Ne7 6. h4 $5 {It's been known that this advance is not so easy to meet. Black does not want to play h5 himself and weaken g5, but then the h-pawn will be able to continue rolling down the board to create some pressure.} Qc7 {unusual to say the least. If black chooses to ignore h4 he usually simply replies with 6...d6.} 7. h5 e5 8. Nbd2 (8. h6 g6 9. Nbd2 Ng8 $5 {Actually leaves Black in a good position as the knight will reroute to f6. This opening is always full of surprises.}) 8... f6 9. Nh4 g5 $5 {Black closes the kingside by force, but in doing so he weakens some of his light squares. Nothing comes for free in grandmaster games.} 10. Nhf3 d6 11. Nf1 h6 12. Ne3 f5 13. g4 $5 {White will obtain a solid spot for his knight on g4, but every time the game opens up a little the bishops have the possibility of becoming more powerful. This also weakens f4 which Black will exploit almost instantly by castling and putting a rook on the f-file.} fxg4 14. Nh2 Bg7 15. Nexg4 O-O 16. Be3 Be6 17. Qd2 Kh8 18. O-O-O Ng8 $5 {The knight wants to go to f6 at the right time - but while there is a knight on h2 it doesn't make sense to trade, so Grischuk simply holds on to the possibility.} 19. c4 Qe7 20. Qe2 d5 $6 {I'm not a fan of this idea that Grischuk starts. The simple development of the rook seemed to give him a good game.} (20... Rab8 21. Bd2 Qf7 22. f3 $1 {And the game is still complex.}) 21. Bd2 dxc4 22. dxc4 Qf7 23. Bc3 Bxc4 {Black's won a pawn... but at what cost? His e5 is severely weakened and his structure has not gotten any better.} 24. Qe3 Rae8 25. b3 Bb5 26. Rd6 Qxh5 $2 {This is too greedy. Maybe a computer can hold the position resulting from the opening of the h-file, but why take this pawn? Grischuk's flag was falling - he is the type of player that is always in time trouble - and he didn't have the time to calculate the variations.} 27. Rg1 Qf7 28. Qxc5 Qf4+ 29. Kb2 h5 {White's not quite losing a knight yet.} 30. Rh1 Qxe4 (30... hxg4 31. Nxg4+ {is clearly suicide.}) 31. f3 Qf4 {Black's up two pawns, but this is not going to help him fix his dangerously placed king.} 32. a4 (32. Rd7 $1 { Seemed stronger.}) 32... Be2 (32... Bxa4 $1 33. bxa4 Rb8+ $1 34. Ka3 Qf7 {is not for humans to see}) 33. Rg6 Nf6 $4 {An inexplicable blunder, after this Grischuk is lost.} (33... Re7 34. Rxg7 Kxg7 35. Bxe5+ Rxe5 36. Nxe5 {is still a weird position.}) 34. Nxe5 (34. Qxa7 {won instantly, as the bishop on g7 cannot be defended.}) 34... Kh7 35. Nhg4 Bxf3 36. Rxg7+ Kxg7 37. Qxa7+ {Black cannot defend his second rank and will get checkmated. A terrible game by Grischuk.} 1-0

Belarus-France and Ukraine-Croatia went basically as expected, with the higher rated team edging out a win. Greece surprised England and took a victory with wins by Papaionnou and Kotronias over McShane and Howell. There are still many teams with 2/2 and tomorrow we will continue to have very exciting games in the top boards, of which Russia will not be part of.

Caruana face Navara, who took him down in the European Club Cup,
but wasn't able to extract revenge. The game ended in a draw.

Swiercz won his game against Khenkin.
The Poland-Germany match featured four white wins so the match was drawn

Solak was certainly today's hero!

A girl, but she always plays in the open section.
Judit Polgar's victory saved her team as Hungary drew 2-2 against Georgia.

Russia lost, but it was hardly because of this man. Andreikin drew solidly with black today.

Replay open games of round 2

Women's Section

As if Russia's defeat in the open section wasn't bad enough, somehow their women's team went down in flames. In this case it was Pogonina that lost with white against Klinova and none of her teammates was able to secure a victory. Israel is considerably lower rated than Russia and yet this didn't prevent them from taking an amazing victory.

Georgia and Poland won 3-1, while Armenia had no issues dealing with a Belgian team that was just too low rated. France squeaked a win against Greece while the Netherlands took out their frustrations from yesterday's round by beating Croatia 4-0.

Deimante Daulyte was Lithuania's sole win today, but it wasn't enough as her team lost to Poland 3, 2.5-1.5

Bulgaria has a strong first board - Stefanova is a strong grandmaster -
but the rest of the team was not a match for Georgia

Joanna Worek leads Poland 3 which took down Lithuania.

Socko is the highest rated Polish woman and she helped her win in a 3-1 victory over Spain

Iceland's first board surprisingly took out Hungary's, but the other three boards,
including Anna Rudolf on fourth, were in favor to Hungary

Russia will watch the top boards from afar. Here is Valentina Gunina drawing her game today.
