A Tata Steel Masters negyedik fordulójában hét döntetlen született, ötös holtverseny az élen A szerdai pihenőmap után csütörtökön folytatódik a szupervereny.

 

It’s a little bit frustrating. I think the annoying thing for me is I feel like I made some crucial little mistakes in each of the three games right at the end. I’ve not been able to put maximum pressure right at the end in any of the games. Having said that, I don’t think I had any objective winning chances in any of these three games, so in that sense three draws is an absolutely normal result, but as I said, I feel like if I’d been a little bit more precise in those games I might have broken through in one of them.

The chess is finally over for today, and even Peter Leko celebrates! 7 draws, but not without a lot of missed chances: https://chess24.com/en/watch/live-tournaments/tata-steel-masters-2021/4/1/2

A sakknak mára végre vége, és még Leko Péter is ünnepel! 7 döntetlen, de nem sok kihagyott helyzet

Magnus Carlsen

du. 7:06 · 2021. jan. 19.

Haha, 2 years ago I realised that I didn’t have a chessboard at home. So I went out and bought one 🙂

This and more, when I break down my favourite scenes from the Queens Gambit.

A great start for Magnus, but some frustration since!

A great start for Magnus, but some frustration since!

Peter explains this would be an easy draw for Jorden with just rooks, but with minor pieces as well, “this is actually a very, very nasty endgame”!

A crazy position in Tari-Firouzja! When Tania pointed out the computer’s move was impossible to find Peter did see 28.Kh1!! here, but Aryan went for 28.Rxc5 and should now objectively be lost… but Alireza has just 2

Another big miss as it seems Nils could have grabbed the b2-pawn on move 40, but 40…Kh8? the moment had gone. We may well now get all 7 draws:

The win for Donchenko if Wojtaszek tries to win here with 45…Bf1? is amazing! Peter summarises the incredible complexity in a seemingly simple position…
