GM Csaba Horvath


In avvio il GM di origini russe Oleg Korneev, favorito e top del tabellone, sembrava poter facilmente dominare il torneo, specie dopo aver sconftto il campione del Kuwati Bader Al Hajiri.

Kuwati Champion-Al Hajiri,Bader 


Ma nel giorno del faticoso doppio turno, il campione russo ha subìto una doppia patta, prima contro l’IM di casa Pierluigi Piscopo, poi contro la campionessa indiana WGM Tania Sachdev, così l’ungherese ne ha approfittato conquistando la testa della classifica che non ha più perduto fino alla fine.
Il campione, quindi, è lui.’

Salento Open 2013 Rd1-GM Horvath Cs(HUN)

More on Salento
The feature game was played in the Salento Open. Here is more on Salento.


TWIC 968
GM 
Horvath kept improving his position as white lost control of the position early and kept losing time with poor piece placement.

Dedijer,S (2018) – Horvath,Cs (2516)
QP 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 c5 3.g3 cxd4 4.Nxd4 [A46]
2nd Salento Open Gallipoli ITA (1), 25.05.2013

Position 1

The position looks innocuous but white wants to plan a knight on c5. What do you recommend for black?
