El Mejor Torneo De Todos Los Tiempos (Primera Parte)



Hasta ahora, se califica el de Fabiano Caruana como el más sorprendente puntaje en toda la historia del ajedrez en torneos. En una entrega anterior, veíamos como Fabiano había sorprendido con su victoria en el Torneo de Sinquefield 2014 con un sorprendente score de 8.5/10 y un performance de 3103. También hablábamos del sorprendente torneo de AVRO 1938 con 4 campeones mundiales en la lista. Y finalizamos con el  gran Fischer y su resultado en el Palma de Mallorca 1970.
Pero, tenemos que regresar y ver que hay otros torneos que no podemos dejar y que por sus notables resultados, pueden ser incluidos en los mejores torneos de la historia.
Solo el lector podrá concluir cual ha sido el mejor de todos los tiempos.  Espero los disfruten. 

Bobby Fischer / New York  1963

Nuevamente tenemos que incluir a este increíble genio. En el Campeonato de Estados Unidos 1963/1964 con 11/11 puntos ante un notable grupo de GMs.

Finales de Peones





La famosa expresión de Philidor “Los peones son el alma del ajedrez” conserva toda su actualidad, pero ahora se da una interpretación distinta y más profunda al papel de los peones en el juego.
De ordinario, los peones constituyen la base de la posición y determinan, en gran medida, sus peculiares características. Tiene extraordinaria importancia el papel de los peones en la fase final del juego., cuyo objetivo fundamental es la conversión del peón en Dama o en una pieza Mayor. La mayoría de finales son de peones y hasta en los que figura es preciso calcular las posibilidades de un final puramente de peones.
Tras la aparente sencillez de los finales de peón, suele ocultarse una gran profundidad. Sin embargo, su carácter original, a veces incomprensible, se explica por las leyes generales por que se rigen y a cuya comprensión se va acercando poco a poco la teoría ajedrecística.
El desarrollo de la teoría de finales de peón es un proceso largo y complejo, de particularidades difíciles o tal vez imposibles de precisar. Hoy en día, la teoría dispone de métodos que le permiten hacer una síntesis más amplia y sentar reglas que facilitan, en cierto modo, el desarrollo practico de muchos finales de peón.
Un factor decisivo del juego suele ser el grado de proximidad o lejanía de los reyes de los puntos críticos o clave, debido a lo cual nace el concepto de “distancia critica”. Las posibilidades de transformar el peón, los puntos clave de la posición, las distancias que median entre los reyes y esos puntos determinan, en lo fundamental, el contenido estratégico de casi todos los finales de peón. 



"La energía del peón aumenta a medida que el juego avanza, es decir los peones cobran importancia cuando quedan pocas piezas. Muchas partidas se reducen a finales en los que una parte acaba con un peón más que el otro, y toda la acción se centra en su promoción. De hecho se podrían definir los finales, a diferencia del medio juego, como las posiciones en las que el objetivo principal más directo es coronar un peón. (Hay un montón de definiciones alternativas, ninguna de las cuales es perfecta.)

El número de peones no es lo único importante, cuentan muchos más factores, como la posición de los reyes en el tablero, la distribución de los peones o su grado de avance.

La siguiente regla de oro es bastante fiable: 

El bando con ventaja material (atacante) debe cambiar piezas y evitar cambiar peones y, por el contrario, el defensor se esfuerza por cambiar tantos peones como sea posible con el fin de aumentar las posibilidades de un empate. 

Una vez más, esto es sólo una regla de oro, y una de los atractivos del ajedrez es que uno siempre se encuentra con excepciones a esas reglas, pero este consejo general, te guiará en la dirección correcta."
