2nd Sinquefield Cup 2014 – Fabiano “The Terminator” Caruana


SAINT LOUIS-MISSOURI, http://www.caturbandung.wordpress.com – Pecatur Italia kelahiran Amerika Serikat Fabiano Caruana (22) belum terkalahkan sampai dengan babak 9 turnamen 2nd Sinquefield Cup 2014 dan mengumpulkan poin 8.0/9. Setelah mengamuk dengan 7 kemenangan beruntun dari babak 1 sampai dengan 7, Caruana dua kali bermain imbang di babak 8 dan 9. Usai memastikan merebut juara 2nd Sinquefield Cup 2014 setelah bermain imbang dengan juara dunia Magnus Carlsen (23) di babak 8, Caruana sepertinya ingin menghormati lawan-lawannya dan “cukup” bermain imbang ketika menghadapi Hikaru Nakamura di babak 9.

Setelah gagal menghentikan Caruana, Magnus Carlsen kini berjuang untuk merebut posisi runner-up, bersaing ketat dengan pecatur Bulgaria Veselin Topalov. Carlsen untuk sementara berada di peringkat kedua dengan poin 5.0/9, unggul 1/2 poin dari Topalov yang berada di peringkat tiga dengan poin 4,5/9. Menariknya adalah kedua pemain akan berhadapan di babak terakhir (10) dengan Topalov memegang buah putih. Tekanan tentunya akan berada di pundak sang juara dunia, agar dapat merebut posisi runner-up setelah gagal merebut podium pertama.

Nakamura berada pada posisi tertekan ketika berhadapan dengan Caruana di babak 9 dan sepertinya Caruana akan kembali meraih kemenangan. Di langkah 40 Caruana memiliki kesempatan untuk meraih poin penuh jika melihat langkah 40. Rxg6+ Rxg6 41. e6 Kh7 42. e7 Rg8 43. g6+ Kh6 44. Bg5+ Kg7 45. Bf6+ Kh6 46. Be5 Re8 47. Kf6 Rxe7 48.

Bf2 sehingga permainan mengarah ke hasil imbang. Caruana sepertinya tidak “terlalu” memaksakan untuk meraih kemenangan dan cukup puas dengan hasil imbang.

R9 Caruana-Nakamura

Sampai dengan babak 9 Caruana tampil dengan performansi mencapai 3162 dan berhasil menambah elo rating sebesar 35. Tambahan elo ini membuat Caruana naik ke peringkat kedua, menggeser Aronian, dan semakin mendekatkan Caruana dengan Carlsen yang masih bercokol sebagai pecatur peringkat pertama dunia.

Turnamen Sinquefield Cup 2014 mengundang 6 GM top dunia: Magnus Carlsen (Norwegia), Levon Aronian (Armenia), Fabiano Caruana (Italia), Hikaru Nakamura (AS), Veselin Topalov (Bulgaria), dan Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (Perancis). Keenam pemain akan bertanding dalam sistem double round robin mulai tanggal 27 Agustus s.d 7 September 2014. Total hadiah yang disediakan adalah US$315.000,00: US$100.000,00 untuk Juara I, US$75.000,00 Runner-up, US$50.000,00 untuk Juara Ketiga.
