Can you see it in his face? Anish Giri, with the white pieces, does not look exactly set to win

The Qatar Masters Open 2014is being held from November 25 to December 5 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Doha, Qatar. There are 92 grandmasters participating, or 60% of the 154 total players. 56 GMs are over rated 2600, and an incredible 14 over 2700. Let those numbers sink in for a moment! This tournament truly is a convention of brilliant chess minds.

Yu Yangyi proved his class in this game. Strong opening preparation, purposeful play in the middlegame and loads of patience in the endgame gave him a crucial victory. After six straight wins, two losses have resulted in Giri being out of the title race. But for Yu Yangyi it’s a big day tomorrow. He takes on Kramnik with the white pieces! If he mananges to beat him, he becomes the Qatar Masters Champion.

Salim Saleh vs Vladimir Kramnik, the decisive game – probably of the whole Qatar Masters 2014

If you want to learn the art of how to win equal endgame positions, this game is for you! Look at it carefully and learn from the Russian legend!

A fantastic technical achievement by Kramnik. The thing that I loved the most about this game was that even though Vladimir was in a must-win situation and he was facing an opponent who was rated 200 points below him yet he played very objectively. He didn’t despise equal positions. He went into it and tried to find those little imbalances like the h2 pawn weakness which would help him win. Using all his technical superiority he ground out a win! And of course we must remember that Salem Saleh is best known for his attacking and uncompromising style of play. These quiet positions are not really his strength and hence he couldn’t play them so well.
