Cuando era evidente que esta sería la última partida del match y mi incógnita sobre si se repetiría el jaque en b5 iba rumbo al no, por obra y gracia divina de repente se convirtió en un si. Un jaque insípido para todos los mortales menos para Magnus que en esto de las posiciones bien tranquilas es un extraterrestre.

El ambiente.

La partida tenía lugar en su país natal pero el ambiente era malo para Vishy Anand. Lo peor de todo es que allí enfrente de su pueblo estaba a punto de ser destronado y para evitarlo, al menos para mantener vivas las esperanzas, necesitaba ganar con negras.

Para esta partida trascendental depositó su confianza en su gran arma, la Variante Najdorf de la Siciliana pero sus esperanzas pronto se desvanecieron, no había dedicado tiempo Magnus en sus largos meses de preparación a esta defensa y su mano volvió a depositar un alfil desafiante en la casilla b5 apuntando hacia el rey.

Este jaque inofensivo le había causado a Anand dolores de cabeza en dos ocasiones anteriores.

 



El resumen

Algunos esperaban que esta partida fuera de puro trámite, pero no fue así. Se dice también que Anand por honor no podía ofrecer el empate y Magnus tampoco por sentido común, pero eso tampoco es así.

La partida se jugó, Magnus dio su jaque en b5, que lo hace sentir feliz y le trae buenos recuerdos. Anand con meses para prepararse no jugó de forma convincente y fue quedando peor y Magnus fue a por él.

Se jugaba su Elo, su prestigio y tener el grato recuerdo de ganar por goleada. A punto estuvo de lograrlo y los aficionados disfrutaron con esta partida que mantuvo la tensión hasta el último minuto.


Las notas pedagógicas

El jaque en b5

Desterrado toda la vida, tachado de cobarde, lo cierto es que este es el jaque del vago, de quien evita la teoría por un motivo u otro.

Es difícil encontrar a alguien que lo juegue porque piense que es bueno y ofrece mejores chances para obtener ventaja en la apertura que entrando en la Sicilina

Yo sigo pensando a la vieja usanza.


El debate

¿Se puede prescindir de la teoría?

Al terminar el match ese es uno de los debates que nos deja. Magnus ha adoptado esa fórmula durante los últimos años y se mantuvo fiel a ella.

¿Lo podemos hacer todos o sólo él?

    Maestro, con todo su respeto y salvando las ocaciones permítame una observación, Recuerde que el Jaque en b5 es matador de gigantes. Recuerde la sonada derrota que el jovencito Ivanchuck le propinó al flamante Campeón Mundial Garry Kasparov. Es un arma muy efectiva contra jugadores agresivos y con derroche de talento. Salvando las distancias, con blancas, es la Bernilesa contra losSicilianos. Un saludo y éxitos compatriota.

    Ernesto, hay que echar mano a los recuerdos para rememorar esas contadas ocasiones en que hayan muerto gigantes con este jaque. Y en la historia de los mundiales posiblemente haya sido su debut, me tomaré el trabajo de revisar en los próximos días. ¡Un gran campeón nunca debe rehuir la lucha! Era lo que hacía Bobby Fischer con blancas y con negras.

Humph was looking forward (with audible relish) to bearding Archbishop Welby about ethics, since we learnt that the Church has been profiting from five and a half billion quid in various investments – some of which include porn, gambling and arms dealing – and the spokesman for Ecclesia prepped him up nicely, explaining that the Church ran like a business, thinking about its assets, let’s make the buildings work.
