  tamar: Outplaying Jakovenko is no mean feat.

Second Black in a row, and second victory sacrificing material to get passed pawns. I Nepomniachtchi vs Eljanov, 2010

Apr-05-10  ajile: The Short Advance variation isn't doing too well lately.

It's an end game study but in the end, only White's King and "a" pawn versus Black's King, Knight and "e" pawn. For example 48. g4+ Ke5, 49. h4 Na4, 50. g5 Nc4+ blocking the White's King and then the Black's King could chase the g pawn.

true...and Pavel Eljanov did it with flourish.

3 unopposed black pawns by eljanov wowww!

  tamar: <wordfunph> Checking with a computer later, it appears Jakovenko was holding on and even possibly better until 37 Kf2, but during the game, I had the impression Black was better.

However 37 Kf2 is a very natural impulse when you are trying to restrain runaway pawns all the way on the queenside.

Apr-07-10  Tremblesphere: <tamar> After forcing the knight away with 37 c6 Nxc6 38 Kf2, White actually seems to be winning.

<tamar> i agree and the game was down the wire before it was decided by zugzwang..

Apr-07-10  kingsindian2006: <noviant> thanks for the line... i didnt see the knight going to Nc4 .. learn something new everyday with the royal game.. thanks again
