Poikovsky: Cheparinov Makes His Last Blow Using Good Opening Knowledge

Ivan Cheparinov, who was last during nearly the whole tournament distance in Poikovsky showed that he is far from being weak in his last round, having scored a smart victory against Emil Sutovsky.

The victory however is due to the fact that the Bulgarian performed a deep analysis of his opponent’s Grunfeld defence, that Sutovsky played before.

"You need to have good memory to play the Grunfeld, because you need to calculate in all variations. If you forget something that usually ends badly. It’s not the Queen’s gambit where you are free to change lines without any negative effect. This is often impossible in the Grunfeld defence” – commented Alexey Dreev for Chess-news online.

Having played not according to computer analysis (22...Rd1+?! and 23...Ne1+?) served Sutovsky a very bad job. Cheparinov didn’t give his opponent any chance afterwards.
