Baadur JOBAVA - Vladimir MALAKHOV
Burgaas 2012, Round 1

Italian Game
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.c3 Nf6 5.d4 exd4 6.e5 d5 7.Be2

Georgian GM avoided the usual continuation by last two moves.
7...Ne4 8.cxd4 Bb6 9.Nc3 0-0 10.0-0 Bf5N
Earlier the bishop was moved to g4 and e6 or black played 10...f6.
11.Na4 f6 12.a3

12...fxe5 13.Nxb6 axb6 14.Nxe5 Nxe5 15.dxe5 Nc5 16.Be3 Ne6

Apparently moving the knight to the blocking square is an inaccuracy despite typicalness of the move. The d5-pawn is weak and in the case of c7-c6 there will be another weakness for black - on b6. 
17.g4 Baadur in his element. After 17.Qb3 white got a slight advantage. The further plan is Rd1, and only then the threat g2-g4 becomes really dangerous.
17...Bg6 18.f4 Be4 The plan with moving the pawn can't be classified as a successful one. Nevertheless, the position stayed approximately equal until this moment.
19.Qb3? This is a real blunder  Equality could be maintained by playing 19.Bf3. 
19...Qh4 Black grabbed initiative.

20.Rf2 Maybe Baadur missed this nice mate: 20.Bf2?? Nxf4 21.Bxh4 Nxe2#.
20...Qh3 21.Bd1? Apparently two tactical blunders in a row show that Jobava didn't get in his stride yet. The chances could be maintained by 21.Qc3.
21...Rxf4! Everything's over. 
22.Bxf4 Nxf4 23.Bf3 Ne2+ 24.Rxe2 Bxf3 25.Rf2 Qxg4+ 26.Kf1 Rf8 27.Re1 Qh3+ 28.Kg1 Rf4 0-1

Both players did their best up tp 40th move. 

  • Again, none of the games of the Amsterdam tournament ACP Golden Classic were adjourned during the second day of play. Moreover, if Gata Kamsky wasn't peacefully inclined, there could have been 100% of decisive results.

    In the sharpest encounters Jobava - Sasikiran and Le Quang Liem - Ivanchuk, the players who had black turned out to be stronger. The Ukrainian used a new move in a known position of the Slav Defence.

  • July 16th, 2012 will be marked in chess history as a day when the game was adjourned again after a long pause. Anna Muzychuk seized the opportunity mentioned in the regulations of the ACP Golden Classic and adjourned the encounter against Baadur Jobava on move 41.
