Analysis of Ivanchuk-Grischuk, 17th Russian Team Chess Championship 2010

For those of you who enjoy chess and playing through chess games of Grandmasters, I would like to tell you that I have just uploaded another game I have analyzed (with the help of Deep Rybka 3). This game comes from the current Russian  Team Chess Championship, more specifically round 7,  and is between two heavyweights of professional chess, Grandmaster Vassily Ivanchuk of the Ukraine (photo on the left above) and Grandmaster Alexander Grischuk of the Republic of Russia (photo on the right above). Grischuk is currently the seventh-highest-rated player in the World (according to the latest FIDE Ratings list at with an elo rating of 2756.  Ivanchuk is the eleventh-highest rated player in the World with an elo rating of 2748. In this game Ivanchuk has the white pieces, and Grischuk plays the Najdorf variation of the Sicilian Defense. The game enters the very complex Poisoned Pawn variation. This game is game number 43 in the Chessviewer Deluxe games index which you can access by clicking on the games tab in the program. I hope you enjoy playing through the game and enjoy the comments Deep Rybka 3 and I have made. Source of image of Ivanchuk:

Thoughts worth thinking about

"Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives."-Sidney Madwed

Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every woman and man present their views without penalty, there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population.- Albert Einstein Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. - Leo Buscaglia

A person's true wealth is the good he or she does in the world. - Mohammed

Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty. -Albert Einstein

The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others. - Ghandi

The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves. - Helen Keller

Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. Confronting your fears and allowing yourself the right to be human can, paradoxically, make yourself a happier and more productive person. - Dr. David M. Burns

Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not die, so do other creatures. -His Holiness The Dalai Lama

Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it. -

Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That's the essence of inhumanity. -George Bernard Shaw

Ego's trick is to make us lose sight of our interdependence. That kind of ego-thought gives us a perfect justification to look out only for ourselves. But that is far from the truth. In reality we all depend on each other and we have to help each other. The husband has to help his wife, the wife has to help the husband, the mother has to help her children, and the children are supposed to help the parents too, whether they want to or not.-Gehlek Rinpoche Source: "The Best Buddhist Writing 2005 pg. 165

The hostile attitude of conquering nature ignores the basic interdependence of all things and events---that the world beyond the skin is actually an extension of our own bodies---and will end in destroying the very environment from which we emerge and upon which our whole life depends.
