Ding Liren vs Levon Aronian - 2013 Alekhine Memorial

ChessNetwork Master games Ding liren Aronian, levon Queen's gambit Slav defence 2013 Alekhine memorial

The 2013 Alekhine Memorial chess tournament game between the young exceptional Chinese talent, Ding Liren, and Armenia's longtime #1, Levon Aronian, was an excellent example of positional chess. We can clearly observe in this game how a space disadvantage invariably influences the relative value of the pieces. I believe Ding's 28th move had been played with a significant amount of calculation behind it. Aronian's reply to it netted him the exchange, but a serious lack of space persisted. The finishing tactical sequence was both stunning and accurate right to the very end.

Opening: Semi-Slav Defense, Accelerated Meran variation
