  • Timur's Tactics

    https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2019...-Babayev_Talib Timur's opponent plays 14...Nxe4 trying to out trick Timur. 17. Nf6+ must have caught him by surprise.

    https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2019...-Gareyev_Timur On move 32 for Black my eye jumped on 32...Rf2+ and the attack rages on (idea Qxf2, Ng4+).
    Timur nonchalantly pushes the D-pawn towards the queening square - d4 - d3 -d2 pushing thru all opposition. Straight to the point! (passed pawns must be pushed)

          https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2019...-Gareyev_Timur Very entertaining! Timur uses his knights to maximum effect. First 16...Nxc4 blowing up the center but also leading to active play for his pieces. The other knight 22...Nb5 captures later on e2 and white's position falls apart.

              In the above game how do you describe 25.e4? A good player knows to play it. It leads to dynamic play, an opening of the position, and the use of white's active pieces, But as a chess teacher I would describe it also as a tickler, a pawn sacrifice, a dynamic pawn lever, a clearance move, an irresistible pawn fork, and a remove the defender. Even labeling chess moves is confusing at times!


              • #8
                https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2019...-Gareyev_Timur This game has an incredible number of tactical themes. Basically whites opening development is slow allowing black's active pieces inroads. On move 25 a queen sacrifice is offered by black, which if accepted will lead to passivity of all whites remaining pieces.

                      Timur wins the tournament! I enjoyed his games and the creative tactics.

                        https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2019...-Gareyev_Timur Black walks his king across the board in the late middlegame and that sets up checkmate themes. It would have completed the picture if Black would have played 41...Ke3! and then the two rooks would have coordinated better. Use the king well as an attacking piece!


                        • #13
                          https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2019...schenkov_Denis For a while I was pondering 21...Nb4 in reply to Qd3. The reply Qxh7+ woke me up. After Kxh7 23.Nf6 discovered double check winning back the queen takes away all of black's threats. Thats why the computers suggestion of 21...Bxe5 suddenly makes sense. If 22.dxe5 then Nb4 and the attack works out wonderfully for black. So 21.Qd3 was a careless error allowing the Bxe5 shot.
                          At the end of the game Rxf8 is a simple remove the defender tactic.

                            https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2019...anov_Aleksandr Timing of pawn levers. White plays 18.f4 and follows through with d4 winning a pawn. Timur plays the resulting endgame, bishop vs knight a pawn up, with many finesses leading to a win.

                              https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2019...-Gareyev_Timur Grandmaster chess is hard. I could give naive commentary on this game but I wont. Basically Timur saw the idea with the most interesting play for Black (a4 and Rxa4) but missed something in the calculation of the lines involved. The position is very complex but Whte must be better. Having said that enjoy what Timur missed (remove the defender with Rxb7 and after Rxa2, the kamikaze queen strikes Qxd4!, Qxb7 and then Qxc4! because of the pin Bg2 - d5 - Qb7
