2013 Candidates, Circular 4: Radjabov-Kramnik

Vlad Kramnik was telling us the other twenty-four hr menses at a press conference that the xiv rounds of the 2013 Candidates were immeasurably tougher than the 24 rounds of the 1953 effect inwards Zurich, in addition to 1 of his quips inwards back upwardly of this notion was that the 1953 guys but had ii openings, the Nimzo-Indian alongside e3 in addition to the King's Indian Defence.

Kramnik: secured an border alongside Black but couldn't convert

As soul who was roughly inwards 1953 (though a tad young, at half dozen months old, to follow the chess) I didn't experience he was existence alone fair on Smyslov, Bronstein, Keres, in addition to co. So I enjoyed the irony of seeing him play the starting fourth dimension of those ii defences against Radjabov. (And, who knows, the Azerbaijani may play the other 1 against him inwards their provide game.)

Radjabov: “I likely mixed upwardly some things inwards the opening"

Apologies - I discovery it quite difficult to enthuse almost this game. It lasted a practiced long while, fifty moves, but failed to ignite. If nosotros expect at it on the official website's games analysis page, where each deed is followed yesteryear a Houdini analysis engine assessment, nosotros discovery that those assessment varied from 0.19 inwards favour of White (on deed 10) to 0.28 inwards favour of Black (after White's 40th move). The arithmetics seems to dorsum upwardly the full general impression of caginess.

Radjabov felt that he got zilch out of the opening (Kramnik agreed). The Azerbaijani described it equally a "dream pose for Black", which was mayhap an exaggeration equally he was able to defend it quite comfortably inwards the long run.
