The Aimchess Rapid is the 8th of 9 events on the $1.6 million 2022 Meltwater Champions Chess Tour and takes place on chess24 from October 14-21. The 16-player field will be cut in half by the 4-day round-robin Prelims. The total prize fund is $150,000, with $750 for a win and $250 for a draw in the Prelims. The quarterfinals and semi-finals are 1-day, 4-game matches, while the final will feature two such matches over two days.

The players have 15 minutes for all their moves, plus a 10-second increment starting from move 1. In the Prelims there are 3 points for a win and 1 for a draw. If a tiebreak is required the players will play two 5+3 games and then, if needed, a single Armageddon game, where White has 5 minutes to Black’s 4, but a draw counts as a win for Black. No draw offers are allowed before move 40. Official website:

Hello everyone and welcome to the first Game of day 4 of the aim chess rapid It’s The Clash of not leaders Duda is The leader after day three but uh both Of them have been doing very well Throughout the entire tournament and Both of them I have been playing games Which are just incredible especially Mamajaro he’s been creating uh Brilliance after brilliancy that’s why This is such a big clash it’s a it’s a Very nice game so let’s dive straight Into it another of the world rapid Champion opens with Pawn to D4 uh we Have Pawn to D5 Knight to F3 Knight to F6 and now Pawn to C3 not as all not as A common but still uh played quite a lot Sorry about that Uh we have G6 by Mama Dr of preparing to Think into the dark Square bishop and Bishop to F4 sort of a sort of a London System set up here Bishop to G7 Ponte E3 And now mamidarov castles with Bishop to E2 and now Pawn to C5 uh we have Castles By another back and uh Shakir goes for Knight to C6 Knight B to D2 so just Putting pieces on optimal squares and Now Knight to H5 going after the bishop Here here as that’s a very strong piece Uh Bishop to G5 now not going for Bishop To G3 right away so now my middle can Exchange it first of course um another Big will force Shakira to weaken his King side H6 Bishop to H4 G5 Bishop to

G3 and now uh there are some games for Knight captures and G3 were played but Here we have C captures on D4 and it is Now as of move 11 that we have a Completely new game Uh so he captures on D4 you have to Capture either with the epon or with the C Pawn if you want the open C file You’re gonna capture with the c pawn and Another big decides to keep the the Structure on the queen side intact uh And now Pawn to F5 threatening Pawn to F4 to trap the dark Square Bishop so Bishop to E5 and now finally Knight Captures on E5 Shakira wins The Bishop’s Fair Knight captures and now uh you Could allow this Knight to remain here With something like Knight to F or you Could continue pushing with G4 but he he Gives up the bishop Bishop captures on E5 and okay D captures an E5 and now Knight to F4 putting pressure on the on The light core Bishop here we have Knight to F3 and now Queen to C7 Uh preparing to dislodge the night with The G4 and then gobble up the E5 Pawn so Rook to E1 now inviting the queen to Capture after the Knight is dislodged And then maybe of uh or threatened some Nasty discoveries but mommy Darth says Nope that’s perfectly fine Pawn to G4 Knights the D4 and now Queen captures on E5 and although you could let’s say grab The G for pawn and open up a discovery

Towards the black queen uh it doesn’t do All that much for example captures you Can just move Queen F6 and now the Bishop is just hanging if you go back Pawn to E5 and black has a massive Center here so instead after Queen Captures an E5 we have Queen to D2 by Another back uh putting pressure on the Knight also that H6 Pawn is being X-rayed by the queen so Queen to D6 now Preparing to strike in the center with E5 and now Knight to B5 trying to take Away all of the squares from the black Queen queen to B8 this is the only Square and now Bishop to F1 And the bishop is nicely controlling the Knight Here and Now Pawn to A6 chasing Away the Knight Knight the D4 and pawn To E5 and now uh what do you do uh you Could move the Knight but uh Abdu satrov Was for Pawn to G3 he says all right if You capture my knight uh for example if Captures I’m just gonna play G captures On F4 and your king is wide open yes I’ve messed up my Pawn structure in Front of the king but this is much more Important so instead after this G3 move Uh what mamidarov should do is play Knight the G6 and this is the key idea Here after Knight the G6 point is that After Queen captures uh now you play King F7 and threaten Rook to h8 and even If Queen H7 check you have King the F6 Looks very odd but that’s what you have

To do and then Rook dh8 is coming but in The game mamidara played a knight the H5 And this is not as clean as this King F7 King to F6 idea so here yeah we have uh Queen captures on H6 now threatening to Capture the Knight Knight the G7 and now Rook 8 D1 also also very clean is just C4 as of course it captures them Bishop Captures with check once this diagonal Opens up uh it’s going to be very hard For black to defend this but Rook 8 to D1 uh with the the preparation of C4 Also is very nice now yes the the Knight Is still hanging here but if you capture The Knight here then Bishop to G2 and This is how the bishop comes alive it’s Very very hard to to defend with this For example in Bishop T6 you can even Capture it The Rook captures but Knight Captures no Bishop captures on D5 and Black just falls apart here So after Rook 8 to D1 Queen to C7 and Now Bishop to G2 this is how of course He wants to grab the D5 pawn pawn to E4 And only now c4 uh idea being that while The queen can capture on C4 if you Capture with the queen on C4 then rookie Three and then the Rook gets lifted all The way up the board and uh well uh Hopefully uh you can Checkmate the the Black king but after C4 Mama Duro just Plays D captures on C4 and now comes a Move that is just very very beautiful Yeah it’s not even in in the engine’s

Top three recommendations that’s why It’s so amazing and that is Rook Captures on e4 just giving up a full Rook uh to open up lines of attack Towards the black king and okay you have The capture there’s really not all that Much you can do captures Bishop captures And now you have access to the H7 square But is it really game over well unless Finds the only line that saves the Position for him and then yes it’s over And the momentarov plays Rook to F7 and This is not a move that saves the game The only way to save the game and I will Show it because it’s such a fine forcing Line is Bishop to F5 this stops Bishop To H7 or queen to H7 and the F5 square Is defended sufficiently and now if Bishop to D5 check now you play Rook to F7 probably why my medarov played Rook To F7 uh right away he was maybe Thinking of Bishop D5 at some point but Now after Knight captures an F5 Knight Captures attacking the queen queen G5 Check Knight goes back and now Rook the D4 going after the C4 Pawn going after The G4 pawn and it’s very hard for black To unwind here but you don’t really have To for example Rook E8 and now okay you Can play something like Rook to F4 uh Put pressure on the on the Rook here Rook the E7 and now even Rook captures And G for your threat and Checkmate Because the Rook on F7 is pinned so

Queen to E5 you guard against Checkmate And now you trade Bishop characters King Captures on F7 Queen to G6 check let’s Say King to G8 and now Rook captures on C4 and you have this position where Mommy jar would be up at night but uh Another back would be up three pawns so All in all it’s a it’s a draw uh but uh Only if my major finds this exact line Starting with Bishop to F5 he didn’t he Played Rook to F7 right away now hoping For maybe something like Bishop to D5 But Bishop to H7 with check is what um Another goes for and now King to f8 and It seems like you were able to escape But there is a very very specific set of Moves that allows another Beck to take a Full point here so feel free to pause The video and win the game for Abu Saturov while I give you a couple of Seconds So for those of you who were able to do It congratulations on realizing that you Have to take away these squares from the Black king and for those of you who just Want to enjoy the show it is best of the G6 this is the only move that wins the Game and now it’s very hard for for Black to find the move Rook D1 is coming And uh one’s Queen to h8 lands that will Be Checkmate uh so like something like Rook to D7 you want to save The Rook Rookie one and there’s no defense Against Queen to h8 not the bishop and

The Rook cover all of these squares so In the game Queen the E5 was played this Is uh mamidara’s way of stopping Rook to E1 but it doesn’t matter here another Back took some time to calculate if Everything was Um uh working properly but he calculated Well and he just plays King the F1 And uh now there there’s no way to stop Rook D1 you don’t even care that the Knight hangs because this Knight is not Um involved in the attack whatsoever and It’s uh uh hard to again find the move Queen the F6 is played which is very Nice now if you continue Rook D1 you Just get checkmated of course none of You missed that uh so instead Queen to H8 with check with King the E7 and now Knight to C6 with check uh just opening Up the entire D file for The Rook so if The Knight is captured this is just a Very nice Checkmate in two queen to D6 With the check so after Knight the C6 Check mamidarov goes King to E6 but now Knight to d8 with check just connecting With the Rook on F7 nicely King the E7 And now Knight captures on F7 we have Queen captures and G6 and now Knight to E5 you don’t want to give check right Away then the Knight hangs so first Knight E5 now you’re attacking the queen So there really isn’t all that much you Can do you would love to move this Bishop to open up the back rank for the

Rook but this comes with checks so you Have to move the queen queen to F6 and Now Queen to d8 check and it was in this Position on move 38 that Shakir ma Madero resigned to the game as there is Nothing more to be done here once the King moves and this is the only Square For your king you’re gonna play Rook to D6 trick King to F5 now Queen captures On F6 with tracking to E4 and now uh Well uh you can play a whole lot of Moves but Queen to F4 is just made in One So there we have it very nice game Between both another back and and Shakira they’ve been having an amazing Tournament uh but in this game it was Norweg abusatro of who is better who uh Closes in and do the the leader of the Tournament uh so yeah that’s the game Hope you guys enjoyed it I would like to Wish a very happy birthday uh to dhanush And also a very happy birthday to Pedrino and I would like to thank Lord Of Chess Anderson Vera and torko’s Tanguist for a contribution to my Channel thank you a lot I really Appreciate it as usual you can check two Of my previous videos here thank you for Watching and I will see you soon Continuing the coverage of this Wonderful event until it finishes so Thank you all I will see you soon and Have an excellent rest of your day
