The Champion's Match

05/09/2021 –  GM Vladislav Artemiev (2704) ended the winning streaks of 18 year old genius GM Alireza  while  World Champion Magnus Carlsen ( 2847) ousted GM Levon Aronian (2782). Both advanced to the Finals of the 2021 Aimchess US Rapid.

GM Artemiev used the Trompowsky line as part of strategy to discourage GM Firouzja  from playing his favorite  complex/ aggressive style. In the other Semi-Final match, GM Magnus Carlsen outmaneuvered GM Levon Aronian in a exciting, nail biting Sicilian Najdorf game.

The Killer Trompovsky

The Trompowsky variation can be your surprise weapon during crucial match-ups. This variation avoids Indian defense openings (King's Indian, Nimzo-Indian, Bogo-Indian, Queen's Indian) and main lines of Queen's Gambit and Slav.

GM Firouzja was not able to find a solution, maybe he was unprepared. Very smart research tactics by GM Artemiev!!

Let's find out why the Trompovsky variation is worthy to be your next favorite opening.

The Sicilian Najdorf: Early 6...e5 push

This game is a classic example of playing the side variation of the Sicilian Najdorf.  Black decided to move the early 6...e5 versus white's  6. Be2 variation. GM Carlsen's 9. a4 move stalls black's position  at the queenside by the help of piece mobility  enough to create  dangerous two (2) pass pawns.

GM Aronian engaged GM Carlsen in a combat fight when two (2) center passed pawns started to move forward. At move 34...Ra8, GM Carlsen sacrificed his queen but GM Aronian declined it.

Let's check the game below and learn how we could imitate GM Magnus Carlsen's dynamic moves...
