Queens Gambit Short Svane Win

Newly titled Grandmaster Rasmus Svane of Germany defeated GM Cheparinov in a Ragozin Queens Gambit Declined. This line 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nf3 Bb4 feels like a combination of the Queens Gambit Declined and the Nimzo-Indian Defence.

The more experienced Grandmaster Ivan Cheparinov is a three-time champion of Bulgaria. Cheparinov has played the Ragozin from each side several times over the years. In 2005 he lost a long battle against future World Champion Magnus Carlsen.

In this game, Rasmus Svane followed a game he won earlier in the year against Pert. For his part, Cheparinov played the same way that Wesley So played against Anish Giri until move 13. Svane applied pressure which Cheparinov equalized. Then on move 23, Black missed White’s sudden kingside attack.
