Every Russian Schoolboy Knows: Revolution Revisited - Part 14

Opening: C93: Ruy Lopez

Player(s): Navara, Morozevich

The Zaitsev was the battleground of the memorable Kasparov-Karpov encounters, but he doesn't get much of a spin these days. Perhaps, it's the Berlin to blame because in order to avoid it White is forced to put his pawn to d3 in the early going. Even so, when it comes to classical closed Ruy lines, most of the time it's the Breyer. In the featured game, White preferred a more modest a-pawn advance on Move 12, instead of Kasparov's favorite 12.a4. It is interesting to see how Navara avoided the old recommendation 16.f4 in favor of 16.Nf3, previously played by Bologan, and how Morozevich's energetic play helped Black to wiggle out of trouble. Still, playing the Zaitsev remains problematic.
