Selección de Estudios por Ernest Pogosyants. Primera Parte


Эрнест Левонович Погосянц (04-06-1935 - 16-08-1990) Ernest Levonovich Pogosyants, fue un compositor Soviético de problemas y finales. Desde 1959 ha publicado más de 4000 estudios y 800 problemas de ajedrez en todo tipo de géneros. Participo en numerosos torneos de composición y estudios con 550 distinciones incluyendo 230 premios; 70 de ellos en el primer puesto. Fue seis veces campeón en el periodo de 1961-1985 en composiciones en Moscú . 

El Enroque en Estudios

En un juego regular de ajedrez, es común ver el enroque en ambas partes. En estudios, esta práctica es muy escasa; por no decirla "rara". El enroque es permitido en las composiciones de ajedrez, exceptuando en los análisis retrogados donde el Rey o la Torre ya han hecho su movimiento. En esta ocasión, veremos 9 ejemplos originales por parte de Pogosyants donde enrocarse es un ingrediente principal para la solución del estudio.

Battle Of The Legends 2015 Gary Kasparov - Nigel Short


Garry Kasparov y Nigel Short se enfrentaron en un duelo de leyendas, 22 años después de su encuentro por el título mundial en Londres (1993). Eso sí, en partidas de ajedrez rápido y relámpago.

Las fechas para el desafío fueron el 25 y 26 de abril. Se disputaron dos partidas de ajedrez rápido y ocho de ajedrez relámpago. El ritmo de juego para el ajedrez rápido fue de 25 minutos por jugador para toda la partida, más 10 segundos de incremento por movimiento. En el ajedrez relámpago los jugadores dispusieron de 5 minutos para toda la partida y recibieron 3 segundos de incremento por movimiento.

El lugar del encuentro fue el Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis (CCSCSL) que recientemente albergó el Campeonato de EE.UU. en San Luis (Misuri, Estados Unidos de América)

Una Oportunidad De Mate

Se realiza en estas fechas el Abierto de Moscú, Aeroflot Open 2015 con muy buenos resultados en sus primeros rounds. Una interesante partida me llamo mucho la atención, donde el GM Khaillurin con Blancas, obtuvo la victoria, pero desaprovecho una maravillosa oportunidad de mostrar un mate. Blancas jugaron 31.♘xd7 y Negras abandonaron. Podrían encontrar la jugada descisiva No. 31 de las Blancas?
