Dutch Defense – Tata Steel 2012 – Boris Gelfand vs Hikaru Nakamura: 2012 World Chess Championship Challenger Boris Gelfand opens with d4, and Nakamura employs the Dutch Defense as black. Gelfand commits himself early with 12. Ng5 and 13. Nxe6 to win the black Be6, however this maneuver costs him valuable time in the center. Nakamura is able to achieve a space advantage in the center and especially cramp the white Bg2, while preventing the infiltration of white’s rooks on the c7 square with 24. …Be5. Gelfand fails to sense the danger in the position and does not stop black from opening the position with 26. …d4, leading to a dangerous attack against white’s king. The white Ba3 is an idle spectator, enabling Nakamura to achieve a powerful past pawn with 31. …exf2+ and accurately convert his advantage with 35. …Red4 – leading to Gelfand’s capitulation.
