Example text

11 ¤ge2 44 11 ¥e5 This was how Kasparov reacted in his first game with Short. ¥f5 12 ¥e5 12 £c1 Shipov,S−Ward,C/Port Erin 1999. ¤xc3? is a mistake - Karpov,A−Short,N/Prague 2002. ¤xc3!? Law,A−Ward,C/London 1994. b6!? A now very trendy successful dissuader of 5 a3. Black has conceded the bishop pair but gains a dangerous development advantage in exchange. 8 ¤f3 Black's idea is to sacrifice the c7−pawn after 8 ¥f4 ¥a6! 9 £xc7 £xc7 10 ¥xc7 ¤c6 and Black has good compensation for the pawn. Short introduced this line against Baburin at the 1998 Isle of Man Open, the game ending in a draw.

The main alternative for White is 10 cxd5. b6!? Qxb4+ 14 axb4 gives White a very pleasant endgame, so the following piece sacrifice is virtually forced. £c7! £e5!? is also very interesting: 17 exd5!? £xa1 is clearly better for Black, who has an automatic attack against the white king. £e5 18 ¦a2 Van Wely,L−Palo,D/Halkidiki 2002. ¤a6 7 a3?! This is too accommodating. ¤xc5 8 a3 ¥xc3 9 ¥xc3 which was played recently in Kramnik−Grischuk, Cap D'Agde 2003. ¥xc3+ 8 £xc3 ¤xc5 9 b4? I don't think White should be so ambitious here − his position isn't strong enough to support this early advance and Black is able to cash in by opening the position up to exploit his development advantage − see Wagner,R−Fischer,J/Bad Wiessee 2003.

Ne7 is a safe retreat. ¤e7 16 ¥b5 ¥c6!? Topalov,V−Leko,P/Cannes FRA 2002. 16 ¥b5 39 XIIIIIIIIY 9r+-+-trk+0 9zpl+n+pzp-0 9-zp-+p+-zp0 9+Lzp-+-+-0 9-+-zPPsn-+0 9zP-+-+P+-0 9-zP-+-vLPzP0 9tR-+-mK-sNR0 xiiiiiiiiy Sokolov,I−Hansen,C/Malmo SWE 2001. d5 is a counter−attacking line in which Black tries to take immediate action against White's early queen move. This line can lead to extremely sharp positions. 5 cxd5 £xd5 6 ¤f3 XIIIIIIIIY 9rsnl+k+-tr0 9zppzp-+pzpp0 9-+-+psn-+0 9+-+q+-+-0 9-vl-zP-+-+0 9+-sN-+N+-0 9PzPQ+PzPPzP0 9tR-vL-mKL+R0 xiiiiiiiiy 41 6 e3 Preventing the queen swap that may come with 6 Nf3 Qf5 is probably a more ambitious way for White to play.
