The Greenbecker Gambit by Ben Graff
355 pages
Price €15,00

The English author and chess lover Ben Graff, comes with his book,The Greenbecker Gambit on the fictive chess player, Tennessee Greenbecker,a older
 player who is far from the top,but still on the hope for a comeback.
Slowly  a great part of his life has been spend in pubs and bars, throw the years he has become more and more paranoid.
But at the age of twelve of thirteen he was one of the finest player of his time. Tennessee Greenbecker saw himself then as one of the greatest of his time.
But the modern age has not become  easy for our hero, because the lack of computer knowledge has become a problem, but in his hand bag belongs a
worn copy of Bobby Fischer's, My 60 Memorable Games, and his love for  game eight,Fischer – Keres Zurich is never ending.
Tennessee Greenbecker is a long way from the top specially with the refutation of his new gambit,The Greenbecker Gambit,which shares his name with the
book is not really a good help for his mental and physical situation.

In this book I did learn Ben Graff as an brilliant writer with unbelievable creativity!
Higly recommended!

Candidates Tournament Ekaterinburg (6), 23.03.2020
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 My opponent has a lot of experience playing the Italian and I even read some praise of his skills in this subtle opening by Magnus Carlsen himself. 4.0-0 Nf6 5.d3 d6 6.c3 0-0 7.Re1 a5 I played with ...a6 more often, but this system is one of the main lines as well. Black stops White from grabbing space on the queenside. 8.Nbd2 Be6 9.Bb5 Ba7 After some thought I decided to deviate from the main theoretical move. [9...Qb8! 10.Nf1 Qa7 is what they usually do here, but I fancied my chances more in less explored waters.] 10.Nf1 If White wants to look for an advantage in this variation he has to do it somewhere between now and move 13, because after I got the d5 break, my position was very fine. On every move White has alternatives. 10...Ne7 11.Ng3 Instead, White could play d4 or h3 already here. 11...c6 It looked sensible to kick the bishop while it is forced to go to a4, before he pushed d4. 12.Ba4 Ng6 13.h3 [13.d4 was more principled, taking the center first, but then surely White was bothered by 13...Bg4!? when indeed it is not so easy for him.] 13...d5! 14.exd5 Nxd5 The e5 pawn is not hanging because of the Bxf2+ Qf6+ trick in the end and in general, Black got a good version of this central pawn break. I was satisfied with this position, rarely does one get a slight edge with Black against such a well prepared player. That said, white's position remains solid, of course. 15.Bc2 [15.d4 is more natural immediately, but it is most likely just going to transpose. 15...exd4 16.Nxd4 Qc7!? 17.Nxe6 Bxf2+! is a theme: 18.Kxf2 fxe6+ 19.Kg1 Qxg3] 15...Qc7 [I actually spent some time pondering over the overly risky 15...f5!? but finally decided that it is too murky, plus the move in the game is simple and good.] 16.d4 exd4 17.Nxd4 Rae8 I spent a little too long on this obvious move, but I was trying to pin down my small plus and hesitated a lot between this move and the more direct 17...Ndf4. [17...Ndf4 had me excited as I was deeply immersed in tactics after Nxe6, but White is never going to be this suicidal and has some solid options to try and hold the balance. 18.Nge2!? (18.Nxe6 Bxf2+ 19.Kxf2 Nxh3+ 20.gxh3 fxe6+ 21.Bf5 Rxf5+ 22.Nxf5 Qh2+ 23.Ke3 exf5 is very spectacular and also winning.) ] 18.Bg5 Sensible, White wants to finish his development too. [18.Be4 is what I expected, when I finally settled on the simple retreat 18...Nf6!? Now if White captures everything he once again has some issue on f2. 19.Bxg6 hxg6 20.Nxe6 Bxf2+!? 21.Kxf2 fxe6 and Black will win back the piece with dividends, because 22.Nf1 fails to 22...Ng4+ 23.Kg1 Rxf1+! and Black will crush.] 18...Ndf4 [18...h6!? was an alternative I considered very seriously too. 19.Bd2 Ndf4 Black keeps some pressure.] 19.Qd2 Bd5 20.Rxe8?! Very natural to trade down with tempo, but objectively White should give up the bishop pair to equalize. [20.Bxg6 Nxg6 21.Ndf5 f6 22.Be3= and White is not having much fun, but stands nonetheless very solid.] 20...Rxe8 21.Re1 Taking on g6 was again a better option. 21...Re5?! I planned this from very far and it does look pretty, but quite clearly after I played it I realized that it was an awful idea. I simply miscalculated. [21...Rxe1+ 22.Qxe1 Kf8! would lead to a surprisingly substantial advantage. White not only has an issue with the g2 pawn, but don't forget about the little a2 soldier as well.(22...Ne6 was actually played in a high level game that reached this far, although from a slightly different move order. 0-1 (51) Grandelius,N (2687)-Hovhannisyan,R (2630) Reykjavik 2019 23.Ngf5 would sort of equalize though.) ] 22.Bxf4 Rxe1+! Fortunately I got my mind back in time and noticed that my original plan of keeping the e-file with Nxf4 fails to Be4 when I am suddenly in trouble, as the f4 knight is hanging. [22...Nxf4 23.Be4! Just for fun I tried to figure out a way here during the game, but it was no longer possible, White is simply better already.] 23.Qxe1 Qxf4 24.Qe8+?! Tempting check, but actually White will regret it later. No funky business works here. [24.Ngf5! Bc5 25.a3 White should be defending modestly, the queen on e1 does a good job defending from Qc1+.] 24...Nf8 25.Bb3 This move came as a surprise, I expected White to fish for some chances in 25.Ngf5, though after 25...Bc5 I didn't see how he can proceed. [25.Ngf5 Bc5 26.Bb3 was actually a better option here. 26...Bxb3 27.axb3 g6 28.Qe3 Qxe3 29.Nxe3 Bxd4 30.cxd4 Ne6 and this endgame I felt is holdable, but Black is still very much pressing.] 25...Bxd4 26.cxd4 Bxb3 27.axb3 Qf6?! The problem was that I considered mostly the natural move ...g6, which was well met with Ne4 and once I spotted Qf6 I was just too happy not to play it. In fact I was sort of proud of this move, but it was actually here where I let the biggest part of my edge slip. [27...h6! For some reason I didn't consider this simple move, which is a pity, because the line is not that complicated - 28.Ne4 Qc1+ 29.Kh2 Qxb2! and the queen is in time to return, after picking up the important pawn.] 28.Qe4! Now that White retreats Black enjoys a pawn structure for free, but at the same time, White is still very solid and it is hard to convert Black's position edge into something real. 28...g6 [28...Qe6!? felt right, but I didn't want to allow a knight endgame, which I felt was too drawish. 29.Qxe6 Nxe6 30.Ne2] 29.Ne2 Ne6 30.h4 h5?! very sloppy. I played this swiftly and usually these inclusions happen indeed automatically, but here it was important to regroup the queen immediately to d6, which I later realized turned out to be not so easy. [30...Qd8! Now White doesn't have time for Qe5, that's the point. 31.g3 Qd6³] 31.g3 Qd8 32.Qe5 Qb6?! I had to of course go Qc7 to keep any winning chances, but not wanting such an endgame in general and having refused it in much better version earlier, I acted too stubborn. 33.d5! cxd5 34.Qxd5 Kf8 I bluffed that I had Nc5-Nd3, but obviously White has many ways to deal with it. Now the position is just totally equal. Black still has a better pawn structure on the queenside, but White's queen is more centralized. [34...Nc5 35.Qd4!? is one of the many ways to indirectly protect the b3 pawn.(35.Nd4 Nd3 was my point, though here too, White has resources, thanks to his excellent pieces.) ] 35.Nc3 Qc7 36.Ne4 Qc1+ 37.Kg2 Qxb2 At this point I had given up on this game and expected White to smoothly coast towards equality. My opponent, however, decided to use the momentum which was in his favour for the last few moves and decided to try his luck. [37...Qc6 38.Qe5!] 38.Qd7? Taking on b7 would be the easiest when White should manage it quite easily. At first I thought the move in the game was fine as well, but then I noticed that I can reply with the calm 38...b6! Now it turns out that White can no longer win back the pawn. 39.Nd6 Qf6 40.Qe8+ Kg7 41.Qd7 Accompanied by the draw offer, to which I by accident instantly replied "yes, I can see that." Embarassing stuff and my only excuse is that the draw offer came as a shock. 41...Kg8 Black of course has a way to play on. 42.Qe8+ Nf8 43.Qc6! After a long think my opponent pulled himself together and found the way to defend. My advantage started to evaporate as I started to calculate the lines deeper and finally I settled on the long line which seemed to offer some practical chances. 43...Qd8! [43...b5 looks brilliant, but White forces a draw with 44.Qd5!;
43...Qd4 44.Nb5 Qd8 45.Nc7 was a problem. White is doing ok here, rerouting the knight to d5.] 44.Nc4 I expected this move, but turns out there was a cleaner way for White. [44.Nb7! is very strong, but I must say not easy. 44...Qd4 45.Nd6! and Black can't improve his position. This is just OK for White.] 44...Ne6!? [44...Qd7 was another try to squeeze something out of this. One nice line goes 45.Qxb6 Qd5+ 46.Kg1 a4! the point. 47.bxa4!? Qxc4 48.a5 and the best Black can get is 3 vs 2 queen endgame- 48...Qc1+ 49.Kh2 Qf1 50.a6 Nd7 51.Qd4 Ne5! 52.Qxe5 Qxf2+ 53.Kh3 Qf1+ 54.Kh2 Qxa6 which, after some suffering, should be held.] 45.Nxb6 Nd4 46.Qc5 [46.Qb7!? is the computer way to hold this. 46...Nxb3 47.Nd7 a4 48.Ne5 and White manages, due to better coordination, but this really would be a tough call to make, when you can force all the queenside pawns off the board instead.] 46...Nxb3 47.Qb5 Nd2! [47...a4!? also kept some chances alive and would likely lead to a similar endgame. For example 48.Nxa4 Qa8+ 49.Kh2 Nd4 50.Nb6! Qe4 51.Qd5 Nf3+ 52.Kg2 Nxh4+ 53.Kh2 Nf3+ 54.Kg2] 48.Qxa5 Qd3 I actually didn't see how White could clinch the draw here and it seems there is no way. 49.Qa1! White finds the right way, bailing out into a pawn down knight endgame, which obviously should be within. [49.Kh2 is the move I was expecting from a far, when I planned 49...Qd4! 50.Kg1 Ne4 51.Qe1 Nxg3 52.Qe8+ Kg7 53.Nd7 Ne2+ 54.Qxe2 Qxd7 with what I thought was serious winning chances, though I am not sure.] 49...Qe4+ 50.Kg1 Nf3+ 51.Kf1 Nxh4 52.Qa8+ All forced. Now we get a 3 vs 2 endgame. I wanted to prevent g4 for a while and I am not sure if White can play without f4 forever. Something to think about. Carlsen-Anand is a game to study. The position was the same with colors reversed and White having a4-b3-c3 vs b6-c5 pawns. There Vishy defended better than Kirill, conceptually, as he kept the knight around good squares, but eventually stumbled as well, after meeting h4 (there a5) with g4(b5) instead of gxh (bxa). 52...Qxa8 53.Nxa8 Nf3 54.Kg2 Ne5 55.f4 Ng4 56.Nb6 Kf8 57.Nd5 Ke8 58.Nc3 Ke7 59.Ne4 Ne3+ 60.Kf3 Nc4 61.Ng5 Kf6 62.Ne4+ Kf5 63.Nf2 The first moment I got hopeful. I think the knight should roam free. [63.Nc5!?] 63...Nd2+ 64.Ke3 Nf1+ 65.Kf3 Nh2+ 66.Kg2 Ng4 67.Nh3 This stops Ke4, but the knight is completely misplaced here. 67...f6 68.Kf3 Ke6 69.Ke4 Kd6 70.Ng1 Kc5 [70...Nh6 71.Ne2 Nf5 72.Kf3 Kc5 73.Nc3=] 71.Kd3 Nh6 72.Ke3 [72.Ne2 Nf5 73.Kc3 Kd6 74.Kd3 Kd5 75.Nc3+=] 72...Nf5+ 73.Kf3 Kc4 74.Nh3 Nd4+ 75.Ke3 Nf5+ 76.Kf3 Kd4 77.Nf2 Nd6 78.Nh3? This is suddenly a losing mistake, although not so suddenly. At this point I was already wondering if I am not actually winning, but in fact White has a findable defense. [78.Nd1 Nc4 (78...Nf5 79.Nb2 h4 80.gxh4 Nxh4+ 81.Kg4 Nf5 82.Kf3; 78...Ne4 79.Nb2 Nc3 80.Kg2) 79.Ke2 when Black doesn't have a good move and will have to let white knight outside the perimeter.] 78...Ne4? I liked the look of this move, but I missed the strength of 80.Kg2!. Black had two ways to win, both quite subtle, but the main key was to keep the knight dominated. [78...Kd3 79.Nf2+ Kd2 80.Nh3 Nf5 81.Kf2 Kd3 82.Kf3 Nd4+ 83.Kf2 Kd2 84.Ng1 Kc3 Some triangle action. 85.Ke3 Nf5+ 86.Kf2 Kc2 87.Nf3 Kd3 88.Ne1+ Ke4 89.Ng2 h4! 90.gxh4 Ng7! beautiful win. 91.Kg3 f5 92.Ne1 Nh5+ 93.Kf2 Nxf4 and Black will eventually also pick up h4.;
78...Nb5 79.Ng1 Kd3 80.Kf2 Nd4 81.Nh3 Ke4 82.Kg2 Ke3 83.Nf2 Nf5 84.Nd1+ Kd2 85.Nf2 On b2 knight is too far away and while it escaped, it is too far from Black's pawns to be in time for counter. 85...Nd6 86.Kf3 Ke1 87.Nd3+ Kf1 Black walks around and eventually wins. All, still, not so simple, of course.] 79.Ng1 Kd3 80.Kg2! I didn't count on this move. With little time on the clock as well, I felt how it started slipping away. 80...Nd2 81.Kf2 Ke4 82.Ne2 Nb1 Here in the mutual time trouble, I briefly thought I am sort of winning it, but unfortunately White finds the only moves: 83.Ng1! h4 84.Nh3! Here it has slowly became apparent that White escaped, so I tried some last tricks and surprisingly it worked, already when I really didn't expect it to. 84...Kf5 85.gxh4 Kg4 86.f5 Classy way to do it, but not even the only way. [86.Kg2 Kxh4 87.Nf2=] 86...gxf5 I was wondering what if I keep both f-pawns and try to get my knight to e6 and eventually get some f4 Kf5 in. With good defense White can prevent that, but even more importantly with the next move my opponent doesn't even give me that. [86...Kxf5 87.Kg3 Nd2 88.Nf4 Nf1+ 89.Kf3=] 87.Ke3! [87.h5 Kxh5 88.Kg3 Nc3 89.Nf4+ Kh6 90.Kf3 Ne4 91.Ne2 Kg5 92.Nf4 Nc5 93.Kg3 Nd7 94.Ne6+ it is a draw.] 87...Nc3 88.Nf2+ Kg3 89.Nd3?? Shocking, after such a long sequence of great defensive moves, I really didn't expect White to stumble here. 89.h5 also draws, but 89.Nh1+ is a very direct variation. 7 hours is a lot of hours though. [89.Nh1+!] 89...Nd5+ 90.Kd4 Nf4! White must have missed this move. The pawn endgame is lost, and now that the white king is misplaced, so is the knight endgame. 91.Nc5 Kxh4 92.Ke3 Kg3 93.Nb3 Ne6 94.Nd2 f4+ 95.Ke2 Ng5 96.Kf1 f3 97.Kg1 f2+ 98.Kf1 f5 0-1.
