Iniyan's Endgame Challenge

by Shahid Ahmed - 26/03/2023

India's 61st GM Iniyan P loves to calculate. Recently he visited the ChessBase studio in Hamburg to record a DVD. He posed a challenge to those who love to calculate especially in the endgames. It is a complex rook ending which occurred in a tournament game. Try to calculate it deeply and see if you can think like a grandmaster. The thorough analysis will be posted soon. Also, don't try to take help of a computer, it will hamper in improving your analytical skills. Take a guess about the topic of his first ChessBase DVD. Enjoy analyzing this fantastic position till then. Photo: Frederic Friedel

A calculation minefield

India's 61st GM Iniyan P is currently in Hamburg and is recording a Fritztrainer for ChessBase. The topic of the Fritztrainer is 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 - a repertoire for White from this position.

34.Rxf2+ Kg6 The starting point of the endgame. For people who like complex endings or likes to have a challenge to their calculation this position is a minefield with hidden gems. To start off, what is the evaluation of the position? What are white's breakthrough possibilities and what are black's defensive/counterattacking possibilities? These are the questions to think about now. The complete analysis will be published later.
