Copa del Mundo: Levon Aronian y Ding Liren son los finalistas

por Amruta Mokal y Sagar Shah
22/09/2017 – La ronda de desempates de la Copa del Mundo, disputada ayer fue muy emocionante. El duelo entre Levon Aronian y Maxime Vachier-Lagrave finalmente culminó en una partida a todo o nada. Vachier-Lagrave optó por jugar con negras, pero Aronian le venció y, por lo tanto, se ha clasificado para la final. El otro duelo, que resultó ser muy igualado también, concluyó con la victoria de Ding Liren y Wesley So quedó eliminado. Los dos finalistas y participantes garantizados en el Torneo de Candidatos 2018 en Berlín, por lo tanto son Levon Aronian y Ding Liren. | Foto: Amruta Mokal

Ding Liren es el primer jugador chino que participará en un Torneo de Candidatos

Los desempates siempre son emocionantes y de mucha presión psicológica, pero ayer había todavía más en juego: la garantía de obtener una plaza en el Torneo de Candidatos en Berlín (en marzo de 2018), que determinará quien rete al Campeón del Mundo Magnus Carlsen por el título mundial.

La verdad es que nunca antes hemos visto tan nervioso a Wesley So, por ejemplo. Estaba sacudiendo a las piezas mientras hacía los movimientos y Ding Liren estaba sentado en el borde de la silla. Levon Aronian hacía movimientos negativos con la cabeza todo el rato, incluso cuando no había cometido error alguno. Maxime Vachier-Lagrave incluso pasó por alto un movimiento que habría conducido al jaque mate inmediatamente, a pesar de que tenía tiempo de sobra en el reloj. Eso es lo que te puede hacer la presión.

Cuando Levon Aronian había ganado su duelo contra Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, le preguntamos si tanto estrés puede llegar a ser inaguantable para él. Respondió: "Es que esto es una situación única y tienes que aprovechar este tipo de momentos en la vida. Muchísimas personas matarían por poder estar en tu lugar, porque es tan emocionante. Lo que tienes que hacer es aceptar que esto no va a ser nada fácil y disfrutar durante el proceso".

Wesley So vs Ding Liren

  Tít. Nombre País Elo 1 2 3 4 5 6 Puntos Rend.
3 GM Liren Ding

4 GM Wesley So

Tras las partidas clásicas, una cosa estaba clara: se trataba de un duelo muy reñido. Wesley So pudo ganar la primera partida, Ding Liren estuvo claramente mejor en la segunda. Ambas concluyeron en tablas y por lo tanto tuvieron que volver a verse las caras en las partidas de desempate.

La partida a todo o nada

Como Levon Aronian y Maxime Vachier-Lagrave habían dejado el marcador empatado tras las primeras seis partidas de desempate, tuvieron que enfrentarse en una partida a todo o nada. El jugador de las piezas blancas tenía que ganar la partida (con 5 minutos en el reloj) y al de las piezas negras le bastarían las tablas (con 4 minutos en el reloj).

Espíritu de deportistas

Maxime Vachier-Lagrave ha mostrado una actuación extraordinariamente buena a lo largo de la competición  | Foto: Amruta Mokal

Maxime Vachier-Lagrave ha tenido los duelos más duros. Tuvo que enfrentarse con Alexander Grischuk en la cuarta ronda y con Peter Svidler en la quinta. Logró ganar ambos duelos. Parecía invencible en los duelos de desempate, pero Levon Aronian ha jugado de manera supersólida con negras y con un estilo de juego poco frecuente con blancas. Desde luego, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave también se merece participar en el Torneo de Candidatos en Berlín. Crucemos los dedos para que se pueda clasificar a través del Grand Prix.

Tras el duelo, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave intercambiaron los siguientes mensajes a través de Twitter:

(Haciendo alusión a que todavía le quedan buenas posibilidades para clasificarse aún así)

A lo cual Levon Aronian respondió:

"Me imagino que a mi novia no le importará casarse con alguien que haya ganado la Copa del Mundo en dos ocasiones", comentó Levon Aronian, que contraerá matrimonio dentro de poco

¡Haga su predicción!

Después de que Ding Liren hubiese terminado su partida le entrevistamos mientras la partida entre Levon Aronian y Maxime Vachier-Lagrave aún estaba en marcha. Le preguntamos a quién de los dos preferiría como oponente en la final comentó: "Pues contra Aronian tengo el marcador favorable, mientras que contra Maxime Vachier-Lagrave no he jugado muy bien hasta ahora".

Ding Liren ha obtenido 3 victorias en partidas clásicas contra Levon Aronian, que no le ha ganado ninguna. Cuatro partidas concluyeron en tablas.

Levon Aronian comentó en la entrevista tras la partida: "¡Es cierto que tengo el marcador en contra en las partidas que he disputado con Ding Liren hasta la fecha, pero ahora tengo una oportunidad para mejorarlo!"
