Despertarse en medio de un sueño

¿Fracasar a la hora hacer planes significa fracasar con el plan? Ajedrez en el desierto: ¿existe? Aquí tiene un extenso informe (con notas al pie) sobre las razones por las que merece la pena acercarse al fin del mundo para participar en un torneo de ajedrez.

Tres semanas antes

Hay pocas partes del mundo que tengan algo tan místico como Chile para mí. Ese país ridículamente estrecho e irresponsablemente largo, tiene una naturaleza tan abundante y especial que para mí siempre era algo como el Santo Grial. Había estado soñando con viajar a ese país durante más de 20 años, también por la historia siempre verde de Julio Viernes. Pero si el billete de avión se prepara solamente 11 horas antes del despegue, las sensaciones pueden ocilar entre la alegría y el pánico, se lo aseguro. Los preparativos antes de poder tachar un punto tan importante en la lista de cosas que hacer antes de morir debería disponer de un tiempo algo más largo que eso.

No sabía mucho de este sitio, pero la búsqueda en Google sonaba prometadora. ¡La realidad incluso superó mis expectativas!

Arica es la ciudad más al norte de Chile y uno de los sitios más áridos del mundo. A finales del año 2017 se disputó la cuarta edición del Torneo Internacional de Arica.

"Lo imposible simplemente tarda un poco más en realizarse". Así se podría resumir lo que hacen en Chile. Desde luego, la palabra "imposible" no existe con el sentido habitual. La cuarta edición del torneo fue organizada por el club de ajedrez Jaque 64 y por la familia Pérez y ha superado todas las expectativas, incluso de los propios organizadores.

Gracias al apoyo económico que recibieron, los organizadores podían presumir de que se apuntaran representantes de 13 países, con un centenar de jugadores en total.

El torneo se podría haber disputado allí, pero Antonio y Adrián prefirieron no poner en un compromiso a los participantes en cuanto a la fé y prefirieron garantizar el bienestar de todo el mundo, así que optaron por otro sitio como sala de juego.

El compatriota de El Debs, Renato Quintiliano (colaborador de ChessBase Magazine) fue tan amable de facilitarnos las tres partidas cruciales:

[Event "Internacional de Arica"] [Site "?"] [Date "2017.12.15"] [Round "9.1"] [White "El Debs, Felipe"] [Black "Cardenas, Pablo"] [Result "1-0"] [ECO "E60"] [WhiteElo "2537"] [BlackElo "2431"] [Annotator "Quintiliano,R"] [PlyCount "65"] [EventDate "2017.??.??"] 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 {Before the round, Felipe told us he was expecting orthodox systems but, as his opponent employed the Grunfeld before against our friend IM Diego Di Berardino, he had something prepared.} 3. Nf3 Bg7 4. e3 {This was his idea. It is not a critical line at all but White makes Black think twice before going into Grunfeld positions.} O-O 5. Be2 {Here Cardenas started thinking since Black has various possible setups. Finally, he went for a Benoni-like structure.} c5 ({The point behind White's move order is that now} 5... d5 6. cxd5 Nxd5 7. e4 $1 {and there's no more Nxc3 followed by c5, which is the main purpose of Grunfeld.}) (5... d6 {would be the choice of KID players, naturally} 6. O-O Nbd7 7. Nc3 e5 {with interesting positions and chances for both sides}) 6. d5 e6 7. Nc3 exd5 8. cxd5 d6 {Since White is going to play e4 at some point, we can assume that this is a Benoni with a free tempo for Black. Long time ago, I thought this was just good for Black, but after seeing some games, particularly Dreev's, I realized it is not so clear how can Black use this tempo to conduct its typical plans.} 9. Nd2 Na6 { Another possible idea is the classical Nbd7-Re8-a6 set-up.} (9... Re8 10. O-O a6 11. a4 Nbd7 12. h3 Rb8 13. e4 {we can find a lot of games in this position with White to move, but even with the free tempo, Black was unable to accomplish his goals. Two recent examples:} Nf8 $6 (13... Qc7 14. Re1 b6 15. Qc2 Nh5 $6 16. Bxh5 gxh5 17. Nf1 h4 18. Bg5 $16 {;Dreev,A (2673)-Salem,A (2564) Gibraltar Masters 12th 2014 (9) 1-0}) 14. a5 $1 {If Black can play b5 and after axb6 recapture with the knight, controlling the important c4-square, this move is not so dangerous, but after Nf8 it becomes stronger} h6 15. f4 b5 (15... g5 16. fxg5 hxg5 17. Nc4 Nxe4 18. Bh5 $40) 16. axb6 Rxb6 $2 17. e5 $1 dxe5 18. Nc4 $36 {Svidler,P (2740)-Nepomniachtchi,I (2702) RUS-ch playoff 66th rapid 2013 (1) 1-0}) 10. O-O Nc7 11. e4 Re8 12. Re1 {El Debs plays carefully, avoiding b5.} (12. a4 {is another option}) ({but if, for example} 12. h3 $2 b5 $1 {is very good for Black}) 12... Rb8 13. a4 b6 {I think that Cardenas was not familiar with the Benoni ideas, as at this point he had spent a large amount of time already.} (13... a6 {seems to be better} 14. a5 $1 (14. Rb1 { is another idea, but after} b5 15. axb5 axb5 16. b4 c4 $15 {Black is fine}) 14... Bd7 {in these positions, after White tries to fix the queenside with a5, Black can use b5 for his pieces, for example} 15. Qb3 (15. f3 Bb5 16. Nc4 Bxc4 17. Bxc4 b5 $1 18. axb6 Rxb6 $132 {;Smith,A (2506)-Westerberg,J (2489) SWE-chT 1617 2016 (8.1) 1/2-1/2}) 15... Nb5 $1 16. Nxb5 axb5 17. Bxb5 Bxb5 18.

White can now achieve the dream position for White players in Benoni.} (14... a6 {was natural and a better continuation, following the plan of making the b5 break possible.}) 15. Bb5 $1 {El Debs immediately takes his chance.} Re7 16. Nc4 $16 {Because of the strange Nc7-a6 maneuver, White is not only a tempo ahead now - its position is almost winning and Bf4 becomes unstoppable.} Nc7 {Black realizes that is necessary to stay passive to keep d6 protected.} 17. Bf4 {El Debs keeps improving his pieces and increases the pressure.} ({in fact, after the game he told me that he calculated the variation} 17. e5 Nfe8 18. exd6 (18. Bxe8 Nxe8 19. exd6 Rxe1+ 20. Qxe1 Nxd6 21. Bf4 Nxc4 $1 22. Bxb8 Nxb2 $44) 18... Rxe1+ 19. Qxe1 Nxd6 20. Bf4 $16 {That still looks great for White, but Black can breath again. There is no need to open the position when you can improve your pieces without giving any chances to your opponent.}) 17... Nfe8 18. Bc6 $1 {Instructive use of the light squares by El Debs. The knight comes now to increase the pressure over d6 and Black has no choice but go for unfavourable exchanges.} Bb7 (18... a6 {stops Nb5, but then} 19. e5 $1 dxe5 20. Bg3 {wins by force} b5 21. axb5 axb5 22. d6 $18) 19. Nb5 {White continues its light squares exploitation with a stable advantage.} (19. Bxb7 Rxb7 20. e5 $1 {was also very strong} dxe5 21. Bg5 f6 22. d6 $1 $18 {winning material}) 19... Nxb5 (19... Bxc6 {was Black's best chance} 20. dxc6 Ne6 21. Bg3 $16) 20. axb5 Bxc6 21. dxc6 $18 {White is basically winning due to the strong passed pawn, pressure on a7 and d6, better pieces and the e5-idea is still in the schedule too.} Bd4 {Cardenas fought very well during the tournament against very strong players, but this position is too much even for a resourceful player.} 22. Qf3 Ra8 23. e5 $1 {With better development and more space, White opens the position in order to invade Black's camp.} (23. Bg5 f6 24. Be3 $18) 23... dxe5 (23... d5 $142 24. Nd6 Bxb2 25. Rad1 Bd4 26.

Our good friend GM Felipe El Debs was a draw away from winning the IV Arica International Open! However, there was a last and big obstacle in his way: the Russian top-seed Demchenko.} 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 ({El Debs is a dragon player who usually goes for} 2... g6) 3. Bb5 d6 (3... g6 {and}) (3... e6 {are the main options}) 4. O-O {The most flexible continuation.} (4. Bxc6+ {is another way, trying to explore Black's last move} bxc6 5. O-O (5. e5 $5 {deserves attention also}) 5... e5 { is another type of play}) 4... Bd7 5. Re1 Nf6 6. c3 a6 7. Bf1 Bg4 {This move is very important, as Black is looking for exchanges in order to free up space for the pieces, and to finish the development in a harmonious position.} 8. h3 (8. d4 $5 {looks like the critical continuation.}) 8... Bxf3 (8... Bh5 { would run into the unpleasant} 9. g4 Bg6 10. d4 $1 {White has a nice score here as the initiative is taken very fast.}) 9. Qxf3 e6 (9... g6 {is another way to develop the bishop, which would be natural as well, for a dragon player like El Debs.}) 10. d3 (10. Qg3 $5 {could have been played here already} Nh5 11. Qe3 {the queen's position has been improved, supporting d4-ideas or allowing d3-Nd2-f3}) 10... Be7 11. Qg3 {An original idea, at least on such level.} ({Most games continued with} 11. Nd2) ({or} 11. Be3) 11... O-O 12. Bh6 Ne8 13. Bf4 {White can't keep the bishop on h6.} (13. Nd2 $4 Bh4 14. Qg4 Ne5 $19) 13... Bh4 14. Qe3 {Rather provocative.} (14. Qf3 {was expected}) 14... e5 15. Bh2 f5 $5 {After the game, El Debs confessed he was feeling that his position was really nice after this move. In fact, Black is giving up a lot of light squares, but the pieces are well developed and White is unable to play d4 so easy. It looks like Black has landed in pleasant situation.} 16. exf5 Rxf5 {Demchenko thought for a long time here and came with a surprising decision.} 17. Bg3 $5 (17. g3 {should be the best, but looks strange for the burried Bh2} Bg5 18. Qe2 Rf7 19. Bg2 Nc7 20. Nd2 Bxd2 $1 21. Qxd2 Qd7) 17... Bxg3 18. fxg3 {It is rather difficult, in chess, to find your way on the board when you are not able to understand your opponent's moves. Regarding this game, not only El Debs but also we (Brazilian masters playing in Arica) were very impressed by Demchenko's decision. El Debs told us he barely considered Bg3 as an option, and so did we. This move looks quite peculiar since White is spoiling its own pawn structure. In hindsight, it is easy to change our minds about this but the Russian GM correctly evaluated the consequences in the right moment. Despite the doubled pawns on the kingside, White is ok and can continue playing for centralization, a well timed d4-break and the subsequent invasion on the light-squares. Truly deep!} Qe7 {El Debs regretted his next moves.} ({He correctly claimed that} 18... Rf8 19. Nd2 Nf6 {was a safer path and more solid, and in fact Black has a nice position here} 20. Ne4 Qe7 21.

“El amor no tiene que ver con la propiedad, los diamantes y los regalos, sino con el mundo que te rodea”. (Pablo Neruda). Desde luego, esa es la frase apropiada para describir a los organizadores y a la gente de allí. Nos dieron lo mejor que poseían: ellos mismos, su dedicación y hospitalidad.

Cosas pequeñas, que marcan la diferencia:

  • Llegamos a la una de la noche. Cuando otras personas están soñando con los angelitos, el cocinero del hotel nos preparó algo para cenar.
  • A las tres de la noche, tras un viaje de más de 50 horas, estaba a punto de explotar de agotamiento. Tenía ganas de encontrar la habitación más acogedora de todo el hotel. El director puso buena cara y llevó mi maleta de una habitación a otra para ayudarme a encontrarla.
  • Cuando paseaba por la calle durante el día, siempre encontré a gente que me indicaba el camino o que incluso se ofrecía como guía.
  • Hasta encontré un taxista que decidió mostrarme la ciudad durante su tiempo libre y corriendo con los gastos. ¡La gente es increíblemente generosa y hospitaliaria en Arica y en Chile en general!
