Groningen 2012 Rd1 GM Hansen,E(CAN)

Here is GM Hansen’s tough rd1 draw.

 
 
GM Hansen,Eric(CAN) playing in Panama Open II 2012 
 
 

Kerigan,Demre (2233) – Hansen,Eric (2539)
Sicilian Kan 5.c4 [B41]
SFG 2012 Groningen (1), 21.12.2012

Position 1
The ending is tense. How should black proceed?

  • 47..Bxd5 dumping off the passive bishop for the active knight
  • 47…Rf8 and trade off the passive rook for white’s active rook
  • 47…h4 fix the kingside pawns on light squares for the bishop
  • Something else

Black to Play

47.Kf1

Position 2
Deep into the ending black has a dangerous looking passed pawn well supported by the rook from behind. What should white do?

White to Play

58…Kh6

From’s Gambit[A02]
SFG 2012 Groningen(2),12.05.2013

Position 1
This situation is a bit murky. If white is not careful, his uncastled king will be the cause of problems. What should white do now?
