Tukmakov Wesley (Part 2)

Last June 13 I informed you that Wesley's former coach, GM Vladimir Tukmakov, has written a ebook that he discusses extensively together with his work with Wesley So. BW readers received loads of questions and asked for info, and this can be a good time to answer them.

The e-book is "Chaching the Chess Stars" by Thinkers Publishing. If you’d like a replica of this e-book, you possibly can order it immediately from its web site at Personally, I find the quickest approach to get a physical ebook in front of you simply to make use of Amazonia ( When you, like me, are an Amazon Prime member, you need to be with you in a number of days.

To learn out of your pc or pill display, it’s essential to download the Ahead Chess software to Home windows / Android / MacOS and / or IOS after which order it. This is instantaneous: after you’ve gotten paid on your guide, will probably be mechanically downloaded to your gadget and you may immediately start studying it by completing the chess that comes on your display if you wish to undergo some chess games, together with its markups, and also have a chess engine analyzed within the background whenever you take a look at its variations. This new method of studying chess books is basically cool!

There’s plenty of speak about on-line publications just lately. For instance, the New Chess ( is value a go to!) Is an software that allows you to learn your magazines and yearbooks about your units. As the usual has come, additionally they have a chess that opens up if you wish to go to magazine / yearbook video games. This function can also be out there in Chess Studio with Gambit releases, GM John Nunn's outfit. In fact, all Nunn's books are like good reference works, similar to primary chess traces and openings.

Virtually every part, even the chess-informants (Ahead Chess) in your system have just lately found myself rarely capable of order bodily books. Anyway, return to Vladimir Tukmakov and his co-operation with Wesley So.

She started working with Wesley in mid-2016 by way of Skype. Returning a short while Wesley was very young, he benefited from coaching from a number of Filipino national champions. I keep in mind GM Joseph Sanchez in 1998, telling me this superb scholar whose quick understanding of tactical and strategic nuances is sort of superb. Nevertheless, after this Bacoor descent came to GM 14, he was principally himself. Tukmakov writes that "Once we began the negotiations, it was ranked 10th on the earth with a score of 2770. I do not know other instances in trendy chess historical past, besides Bobby Fischer, the place a single player has risen

The first event through which Tukmakov was concerned in Wesley's preparation , though remotely by way of Skype, was the 2016 Speedy / Blitz event in Paris, which was virtually immediately at Leuven Speedy / Blitz. Tukmakov: “Participation in the direct preparation of games was limited to general counseling. During his career Wesley had been forced to study gaps in his own way and it would have been wise to change his long-established habits. ”

That they had training periods twice every week for an in depth preparation of the upcoming Skype session and preparation of the suitable materials, while the scholar had time to research his coach's recommendations and proposals. was very successful.

Shortly after the collaboration, Wesley gained his first tremendous GM event in St. Louis. "The Philippine humble boy understood that he could fight with the world's best players on equal terms – and even win them."

The coach and scholar met on the Baku Olympics, where Tukmakov was the captain of Group Netherlands, whereas Wesley was in the USA. It then returned to Skype again. On the end of the yr, the final and most essential event of the yr was London Basic, and Wesley was the winner of its solo. This met him on the 2016 Grand Chess Tour's general winner with a excessive margin, 11.5 proportion factors before second-ranked Nakamura

In 2017, Wijk Aan Zee, the US championship, gained Wesley's first title and up to now only time. He was additionally the world's second-largest champion at the time, Magnus Carlsen.

Tukmakov tried to "enhance" Wesley's recreation. “In follow, it will mean not enjoying a guess, even Black. I consider that Wesley would benefit from complicated duties as a result of he had a robust concentrate on video games and virtually utterly missing the large errors. “

They tried this new strategy to the 2017 Gashimov Memorial, however it failed and Wesley went again to the standard type for the remainder of the event. The subsequent event was 2017 in Norway Stavanger and Wesley pulled all his video games.

Tukmakov physically joined Group Wesley for the first time at the 2017 Paris Speedy / Blitz event, however chemistry created via Skype training doesn’t work in a private context. After a variety of less profitable tournaments in 2017, they realized that their co-operation had ended and Tukmakov was not with the staff in March 2018, when the Berlin candidates' event started.

It's time to debate this recreation from the primary round

So, Wesley (2754) – Ding, Liren (2805) [A23] Croatian Grand Chess Tour (1.three), June 26, 2016

19659002] 1.c4 e5 2.g3

Fascinating. We simply wrote concerning the Philippine lady's Junior Champion, Vic Glyze, from Derotas, who performed 1.c4 and a couple of.g3 each time she has white. It is clear who his position mannequin is. GM Simon Williams suggests here that a good counter is to play… Nc6 (to stop White's d2-d4), followed by… f7 – f5 and get an reasonably priced version of the basic Dutch.

consists of… c7 – c6 and… d7 – d5.

2… Nf6 3.Bg2 Bc5 4.Nc3 c6

You will notice that Black waited until Wesley performed Nc3 before… c7 – c6. In this approach, it is potential to disturb the white knight shortly… d7 – d5 – d4.

5e3 Zero-Zero 6.Nge2 d5 7.cxd5 Nxd5 eight.d4 exd4 9.Nxd5 cxd5 10 .exd4 Bb6 11.Nc3Nc6 12.Be3

[12.Nxd5 Bh3! is to be avoided]

12… Be6 13.0-0 Qd7 14.Na4 Rfd8

[14…Bc7 15.Nc5]

[14…Bc7 15.Nc5]

[14…Bc7 15.Nc5]] 15.Nxb6 axb6 16. Qb3

Let us keep in mind what Tukmakov stated about Wesley's type: “It was no coincidence that Wesley's play was cautious and practical. These traits were the player of his development. The young Filipino did not have much opportunity to meet the elite players, so he was too respectful and timid. Respect for parents is also a task of oriental education. ”

I clarified a number of columns then that this was not an accurate analysis. Wesley has an opening system that is made for the event, grabs it, and if his opponent doesn't make a mistake, it's drawing. If he makes a mistake, Wesley will win. This recreation is an effective example. White has a small benefit in this bishop's recreation and better army construction. In all probability not ok to win, however Wesley has one thing to do and subsequently she pulls again and grinds out of place.

16… Ra6 17.Rfc1

17… Bh3 18.Bf3 Bg4 19.Bg2 Bh3 20.Bf3 Bg4

Ding needs to draw, but Wesley needs to play.

21.Bh1 h5

White coordination is just not straightforward to damage: 21… Na5 22.Qb4 Nc6 23.Qb5; Nevertheless: 21… Qf5!? earned attention with the apparent concept of ​​getting rid of the enemy's vibrant sq.. In all probability Ding didn't like: 22.f3 Bh3 23.Bf2 and was afraid that his bishop can be out of the sport, but he can all the time convey it back to one of the following: 23… Qf6.

22.h4 Be2 23.Kh2 Qf5 24.Bg2 Na5

At the post-game conference, Wesley identified that the text was a nasty move that allowed him to activate his two bishops. As an alternative, he instructed to catch the paw 24… Bc4 25.Qd1 Rxa2 26.Rxa2 with Bxa2, however one thing like this appears very risky. 27.Bh3 Qg6 28.b3 Ra8 29.Bg2 Qf5 30.Bf4 it isn’t clear how the bishop shall be unloaded. For instance, 30… Na5 31.b4 Nc6 32.b5 Na5 33.Rc7 Bc4 34.Re7 The White Re5 menace is harmful.

25.Qc3 Nc6 26.b3b5 27.Qd2 Bf3 [19659002] [27…Bd3 28.Rc3 Be4 29.f3 does not solve his problem]

28.Bf1 Rb6?


Methinks should have just given up a soldier. Ding might not have seen Wesley's subsequent transfer


by Bc7

29… Rc8 ?!

Transfer to point out why Ding is so onerous to beat. He might have resigned himself to lose his soldier 29… Qd7 30.Qc3 Be4 31.f3 Bf5 32.Qc5, but shifting the dish to c8 is a tactical level that you’ll soon see.

30.Rc3 Bg4

No 30… Be4?


Beating a bishop, but now you see Ding's resource.

31… b4 32.Rd3 Bxf3 33.Rxf3 Ne5! ]

Black is the thought… Rc2 attaches the queen to the king

34.dxe5 Rc2 35.Rf2 Rxd2 36.Rxd2

However Ding's useful resource is just not sufficient. Wesley firmly consolidates his songs and exceeds Black's forces

36… Rc6 37.Bh3 Qg6 38.Rad1 Ra6 39.Bg2 d4 40.Bx77 Ra5 41.Rxd4 Rxa2 + 42.R1d2 Qb6 44.Rxa2 Qx3 45.Bd5 Kf8 46.Bc4 Ke7 47.Bg5 + f6 48.exf6 + gxf6 49.Re2 + Kd7 50.Bd2 1–Zero

Profitable the B4 recreation and giving up Ding.
