Hungarian TCH 2012-13 Rd7-GM Ruck R(HUN)

TWIC 955
GM Ruck played a nice good N vs B middlegame and then ground out a tough R vs. B ending in the Hungarian Team Ch rd7. There were many interesting facets to this game.

TCh-HUN 2012–13 Nagykanizsa HUN (7), 17.02.2013

Position 1
Black has more space and the more active pieces but there is no real target to attack. What do you suggest for black?

  • 27...a6(make a tidying up move first)
  • 27...R8d7(reinforce the 7th rank as preparation for action)
  • 27...Kg8(get the king off the b1-h7 diagonal just in case. There is no need to rush as white has no counterplay)
  • Something else
Black to Play


Position 2
Black has the exchange for a pawn. What should black do now?

Black to Play


Position 3
Black has reached a tough endgame but white's position has no weaknesses. What should black do now?
  • Shuffle the rook up and down the e-file(following the 'do not rush' guideline) 
  • Get the rook to d5 and then activate the king 
  • Something else 
Black to Play
