Candidates round 4

Από τον τέταρτο γύρο και το post mortem μεταξύ Aronian και Svidler η φωτογραφία.

Δείχνουν ικανοποιημένοι και οι δύο, αφού όντως η παρτίδα ήταν ενδιαφέρουσα, αλλά εντέλει νικητής αναδείχθηκε ο Aronian, ο οποίος συνεχίζει να ρισκάρει δημιουργώντας περίπλοκες θέσεις. Η τακτική αυτή δεν τον βοήθησε στις αναμετρήσεις του με Anand και Topalov, ωστόσο σήμερα δίνοντας τον αξιωματικό του για ένα πιόνι(!) πέτυχε μία σημαντική νίκη!

Qa6 {maybe a safer choice?} 22. Bc4 {is just a repetition.} (22. Qe3 {is probably the only way of creating play.} Na5 $5)) 22. Bxf7+ $1 {Aronian spent a lot of time in this move. Clearly he had not prepared thist in advance, but the sacrifice is intuitively correct. White cannot lose; at worse he will be able to find some sort of perpetual against Black's weak king.} Kxf7 23.

Svidler resigned in what is surely a hopeless position with all of White's pawns rolling in and with an exposed and weak king. A fascinating struggle; Svidler will be kicking himself for not playing Nxd4 when it was appropiate.} *
