Bets on the Catalan?

With the highest possible interest, the entire chess world followed the so-called `Reunification Chess World Championship' match between Vladimir Kramnik and Veselin Topalov in the capital of Kalmykia, Elista. Garry Kasparov, retired from `long' chess tournaments, made the following wise prognosis for the match: Kramnik had the better chances, since although Topalov is the better tournament player because of his incredible energy resources, Kramnik has a better mastery of chess, plus he has more match experience, and his safer style may be more effective in such an event. Of course, all chess players were excited and very curious about the preparation of the stars and

If somebody would have placed a bet that Topalov would allow the Catalan three times (surprise!) out of his seven black games, he would probably have got very advantageous odds and made a very positive result at any betting office... not to mention an article in Yearbook 81! In his remaining four black games Topalov played the Slav and the Semi-Slav Defence. I had somehow been expecting a Modern Benoni, maybe a Benko or a King's Indian, but I also know that in a match against Kramnik these would be extremely dangerous openings.

So Topalov entered the Catalan in the first game and achieved a promising position! Unfortunately he would also suffer from the `Leko Syndrome' ­ Leko also lost his first match game while pushing too hard against Kramnik ­ but his fighting spirit (like Leko's in Brissago in 2004) deserves full respect. I am sure that even what happened in the later rounds in Elista, the `Toiletgate Scandal', so unfortunate for the popularity of chess, could not stop us from enjoying the games of the match and the resulting analyses and Surveys! I should add that Topalov did not try this playable line (7...Ãd2!?) again during the match because of the possible preparation of Kramnik's team, and he also had other lines to test against his opponent.

Vladimir Kramnik and Veselin Topalov: Catalan at the highest level



Now let's see how we can reach the conclusion that it can be logical to play 7...Ãd2!?. After White's 7.©c2 there are, of course, different moves than the subject of our article (33 games). The most frequent is 7...Àc6 (165 games), with the main lines 8.©c4 ©d5!? (8...0-0) 9.©d3 (9.©d5 ed5) 9...©e4. Another possible move is 7...b6 (8 games). I give this move a ?!, with respect to Boris Gulko, who made a quick draw with it against Alex Wojtkiewicz in San Diego 2004. Now I simply recommend 8.Ãb4!? (which appears to be a novelty) 8...ab4 9.©c4, with the idea of taking the b4 pawn too, with advantage for White. The move 7...b5?! (9 games) is not accurate at this point either, since after 8.a4! Black does not have 8...c6? in view of 9.ab5 Ãd2 10.Àfd2!, as in GulkoLjubojevic, Linares 1990, with a clear advantage for White. The move order 7...0-0 8.©c4 Àc6 (2 games) amounts to the same as the above 7...Àc6 8.©c4 0-0 line. Having studied all these possibilities, we can come to the conclusion that exactly at move 7 the move ...Ãd2!? is logical and very interesting, and worthy of deeper and more detailed analysis. White has two main moves: 8.©d2! and 8.Àbd2 (otherwise the d4 pawn falls). In this kind of position, the sacrifice of one or even two pawns is normal, as White gets full compensation. His pawn structure is solid, whereas Black has several weak pawns and more pawn islands.

The Logic of 7...Ãd2!?

White also has the better piece play for his investment(s). The question is whether Black can hold the targeted pawns or whether they will fall. Our Game Section will highlight the lines in this `compensation fight' deeply and in great detail.

Overview of the Games

The move 7...Ãd2!? was introduced by Gregory Kaidanov as Black against Alexander Fauland in Moscow, 1989. It is remarkable that 28 out of the 33 games with this line were played between 2003 and 2006! In this Survey you will find 16 analysed games, with 17 more games mentioned in the notes. Our two main games with 8.©d2! c6!? are KramnikTopalov, Elista 2006, and Grischuk-Moiseenko, Sochi 2006. 8...Ãd7 was tried at least three times in 2006. Gulko played his 8...b6 set-up against Wojtkiewicz at the US Championship in San Diego 2006 using a better move order than in 2004.

Not Dangerous

The other possibility after 12.0-0 is 12...Àd5, which is discussed in Fauland-Kaidanov, Moscow 1989, and Ovetchkin-T. Kosintseva, Moscow 2005. Three additional games, Danielian-T. Kosintseva, Calvia 2004, Bunzmann-Pelletier, Lausanne 1999, and Veingold-Baron Rodriguez, Zaragoza 2004, provide us with an additional taste of this line. I have made use of comments and remarks by Csaba Horvath, Gregory Kaidanov, Yannick Pelletier, Peter Svidler, Alexander Grischuk, Malcolm Pein and Maxim Notkin.


The move 8.Àbd2 is not dangerous for Black if he knows what to do. 8.Àbd2 b5 9.a4 c6 10.b3 cb3 11.Àb3 0-0 12.0-0 Ãa6! is the main line.

The move 7...Ãd2!? forces White to answer either 8.©d2! or 8.Àbd2. Either of these choices gives the position a unique character. The question is: Does White have enough compensation or not? The permanent tension makes the line absolutely playable for both sides. White may regain the sacrificed pawn(s) with a superior position, or Black may either keep the pawn(s) or give it (them) back in order to obtain the better game. This kind of unbalanced chess makes our game exciting. There is still a lot of room for analysis in this line. An example may be the position that could have arisen after 20.Àd7!? in our main game. I agree that 8.©d2! (Lautier) is more accurate than 8.Àbd2, but I think that the refutation (if it exists at all) of 7...Ãd2!? is very far away.
