Un final ganado

Típica es la frase que se repite en el medio ajedrecístico chileno donde se dice que "ganado son las vacas" para referirse a una posición ventajosa donde determinado jugador no supo encontrar la jugada que lo hubiese llevado a la victoria.

Este fue el caso del siguiente posición que se le presentó a uno de mis alumnos de la UAH con piezas blancas en la Final del Torneo Universitario ADUPRI 2013:

Las blancas tienen un sólido peón de más y simplemente necesitan apartar la torre para coronar el peón, cosa que no pueden hacer de manera directa obviamente. Siguiendo este razonamiento no cuesta mucho encontrar la jugada 1.g5! con idea de abrir una columna en contra del monarca enemigo y de esa forma la torre hace jaque y posteriormente corona el peón. Las negras de esta forma están en posición de abandono, ya que si juegan 1... Rxg5 1... hxg5 sucede 2.Tg8+ o 2.Th8+ respectivamente, seguido de la promoción, mientras que ante 1... h5, con idea de mantener las líneas cerradas, simplemente el blanco hace 2.g6 y la torre negra no es capaz de detener el avance triunfal de ambos peones.

Mi alumno, de quién omitiré el nombre por razones obvias, jugó en el apuro de tiempo: 1.Rg2? Tg3+ 2.Rf2 Tc3 2.Rg2 y acordó tablas. Obviamente se llevó una reprimenda de varios miembros del equipo por omitir una continuación ganadora tan simple.

    Let me give this a shot, I hope this helps.   

     

    In the first paragraph, IM Marcelo Jorquera uses a Chilean expression common among Chilean chess players to describe the situation he is about to analyze.  "Ganado son las vacas" similar to "the game ain't over until is over."  The writer uses this trying to tell us that in this game one of the players had the upper hand and should have won, but was not able to take advantage of the situation.

     

    I made some edits to the translation provided by Google:

     

    White is a pawn ahead and just need to move the rook away to crown the pawn, but there isn't a direct way to accomplish that. Following that thought, it does not take much to find the move  1.g5!  attempting to open the H file to then check with the rook and subsequently crown for the pawn.  In this position Black could resign, if they play  1 ... Kxg5  or  1 ... hxg5 then White plays 2.Rg8 +  or  2.Rh8 + , followed by the promotion. If Black plays 1 ... h5 , with the idea of keeping the lines closed, white moves 2.g6  and the black rook cannot stop both pawns

     

    My student, who for obvious reasons will not be named, played 1.Kg2? Rg3+ 2.Kf2 Rc3 2.Kg2  and agreed to "draw" (a tie).

    Gracias por los comentarios.

    En realidad me gusta mucho este sitio y pretendo ir subiendo más artículos en español mejorando paulatinamente la calidad de los mismos. Hay muchas opciones que debo aprender a utilizar como poner visor en un artículo por ejemplo, pero de a poco. Me alegra que les haya gustado la posición que comento, puesto que a mi me llamó la atención y que mi alumno no encontrase la jugada ganadora que vió hasta la persona que hacía el aseo forma parte de la anécdota Smile.

    Saludos,

    Marcelo Jorquera C.

    Excelente jugada, y de paso comento que es muy cierto no hay muchos hispanoparlantes que se conecten a este sitio o por lo menos no los que hacen comentarios, saludos.

    The phrase "ganado son las vacas" have another sense. In spanish "ganado" as cattle, is the same word as the past participle of win. So the translation would be "won are cows"

    Typical is the phrase repeated Chilean chess in the middle where it says that "cattle are cows" to refer to an advantageous position where certain player could not find the move that would have led to victory.This was the case next position was presented to one of my students at UAH with white pieces in the University Tournament Final ADUPRI 2013: This was the case next position was presented to one of my students at UAH with white pieces in the University Tournament Final ADUPRI 2013:White is a pawn up solid and just need away to crown the pawn tower, which can not directly obviously. Following this reasoning does not take much to find the play  1.g5!  idea of opening with a column against the enemy king and thus the check and subsequently tower crown for the pawn. Black is thus in a position to neglect because if they play  1 ... Kxg5  or  1 ... hxg5 happens  2.Rg8 +  or  2.Rh8 +  respectively, followed by the promotion, while at  1 ... h5 , with the idea of keeping the lines closed, just white makes  2.g6  and the black rook can not stop both pawns triumphal progress.http://www.marcelojorquera.com

    My student, who omit the name for obvious reasons, played in time trouble:  1.Rg2? Rg3 + 2.Rf2 Tc3 2.Rg2  and agreed tables. Obviously was reprimanded several team members missing a simple winning continuation.
