  Mateo: A very intreresting games between these two young genius. It was quiet until move 26, but after 27.e5, there are many tactical ideas. Ivanchuk, maybe in time trouble, blundered before the time control. After 39...Bd6? 40.Ne6+ his position collapses.

1) 40...Kh8, 41.Qxc6 Rxe6 42.Qc8+ wins.

2) 40...Kg8 41.Qxc6 Rxe6 42.Qd5 wins at least the "h5" pawn.

After 40...Kf7 41.Qf5+

1) 41...Rf6 42.Qh7+ Ke8 43.Ng7+ White wins.

2) 41...Qf6 42.Ng5+ Kg7 43.Qd7+ Be7 44.Ne6+, the Black Knight is lost.

Thus Ivanchuk played 41...Kg8 but 42.Qd5! is a killer.

  Domdaniel: Was this played in "Bagio" or "Baguio"?
Aug-27-07  Karpova: This was the World Junior Chess Championship U20 won by Anand and it was held in Baguio (and not Bagio as the scoresheet says).

  Domdaniel: <Karpova> Thanks -- every little helps. I guessed this was probably the 'windy city' of the Phillippines, but it's good to have confirmation.

Another thought: Baguio was not well known outside the Phillippines before the 1978 Karpov vs Korchnoi match. Has any other town or city ever gained such recognition from a chess fixture?

Reykjavik (in 1972) was actually smaller population-wise, but as the Icelandic capital it didn't really need recognition.

Elista, with Kalmykia & the Kirsan factor, must be a prime contender too. Funny how these places all coincide with FIDE presidents.

Aug-28-07  Karpova: Merano (Gruenfeld vs Rubinstein, 1924 and Karpov-Korchnoi World Championship Rematch (1981))
Feb-19-08  Lemon69: Baguio was actually the "summer capital" of the Philippines because of it's cold temperature.

Bobby Fischer lived here last 2000-2002 and he met GM Eugene Torre and they became friends.

On the other hand, this one was superb and two woodpusher geniuses showed their brilliancy in the game.

May-12-12  messachess: Here's an interesting game of some age-mates of this generation now playing for the wc:Anand vs Ivanchuk, 1987

It looks like Chucky had some catching up to do at that age, which he probably did. With some consistency, he might be in Gelfand's place.

May-12-12  messachess: Here's a quiz. Of these three representatives of their generation: Anand, Gelfand and Ivanchuk, which has played the most brilliant game (from this database)?

  HeMateMe: first decisive game in a long, great rivalry? Anand beats Chucky in the world junior chess championship, 1987.
