Baadur Jobava gives Boris a lesson in minor piece play

Published on Feb 17, 2018
In Round 5 of the 2014 Bronstein Memorial chess tournament Baadur Jobava (white) of Georgia was paired against Boris Savchenko (black) of Russia. Jobava, one of the most original chess players today, gives up the exchange very early and sets Savchenko many problems to solve. Note how the development for white is smooth with all white minor pieces eventually stepping foot in the enemy camp, whereas black has to make awkward moves to simply try and complete development. The computer evaluation tells us the position is roughly equal, but what it doesn't tell you is that the game is much easier to play for white. There is value in that!

PGN:
1. d4 Nf6 2. Nc3 d5 3. Bf4 a6 4. e3 g6 5. h4 Bg7 6. h5 Nxh5
7. Rxh5 gxh5 8. Qxh5 c6 9. Nf3 h6 10. O-O-O Nd7 11. Qh2 Nf8
12. Bc7 Qd7 13. Be2 Ne6 14. Be5 b5 15. Rh1 f6 16. Bg3 Ng5
17. Ne1 O-O 18. Nd3 Qf5 19. Bf4 a5 20. Nc5 Qh7 21. g4 Qg6
22. Bc7 b4 23. N3a4 e5 24. Nb6 Ra7 25. Bd6 Re8 26. f4 Nf7
27. g5 Nxd6 28. Bh5 Qf5 29. gxh6 Ree7 30. hxg7 Rxg7 31. fxe5
fxe5 32. Nxc8 Nxc8 33. Bg6 Qxg6 34. Qh8+ Kf7 35. Rf1+

I can't possible be bothered with attempting to determine if this subject has been covered before, so I will present it here with the understanding that even if it had been previously posted everyone will naturally pretend that my post was the most relevant.
