Tradewise Gibraltar: Aronian triunfa en un cuádruple desempate

por Leontxo García

02/02/2018 – Este puede ser el gran año de Levon Aronian, quien, a los 35, aspira a destronar al campeón Magnus Carlsen en noviembre si gana el Torneo de Candidatos en Berlín. De momento, a solo un mes de esa cita esencial, ha triunfado en el XVI Tradewise Gibraltar, el mejor abierto del mundo, que se recordará por dos grandes hazañas: la de Pía Cramling, que a los 54 años ha superado a casi todas las mejores del mundo; y la de Lance Henderson, quien a los 14 muestra un inmenso talento.

Festival Tradewise en Gibraltar

El Festival de Ajedrez Tradewise 2018 en Gibraltar cuenta con la participación de gran parte de la flor y nata del ajedrez mundial, junto con un grupo muy grande de jugadores con títulos FIDE y aficionados de cualquier nivel de fuerza de juego. Además también se han apuntado muchas de las mejores jugadoras del mundo, lo mismo que muchos jóvenes talentos.

La sueca Pía Cramling, de 54 años es la primera mujer; y el español Lance Henderson, de 14, hace historia

SERVICIO DE PRENSA. Gibraltar

El armenio, 5º del mundo en este momento, exhibió una gran templanza al imponerse bajo una tensión tremenda en un desempate cuádruple, que en realidad era séptuple: Nakamura, Rapport, Vachier-Lagrave, Aronian, Vitiugov, Le y Adams terminaron empatados a 7,5 puntos tras diez rondas. De acuerdo con las reglas del torneo, los tres últimos quedaron descartados por la performance (rendimiento), y los otros cuatro disputaron el desempate rápido. Aronián y Vachier-Lagrave eliminaron en las semifinales a Nakamura y Rapport, respectivamente, y después el armenio se impuso al francés por 2,5-1,5.

El ganador fue muy sensible en su discurso de clausura: “Hacía trece años que no jugaba un torneo abierto, y he podido comprobar que ganarlo ahora es mucho más difícil que entonces. Por eso, este torneo me ha servido para aumentar mi respeto hacia Nakamura, ganador de las tres ediciones anteriores”. Aronián se concentrará ahora en su casa de San Sebastián para preparar la cita de Berlín.

Que el primer cabeza de serie en la lista inicial de 276 participantes gane el torneo no es una sorpresa. Pero sí lo es que la única jugadora mayor de 40 años de las 40 primeras del mundo supere en Gibraltar a todas las demás mujeres, que incluían a nueve de las doce primeras del escalafón. La proeza de Pía Cramling a los 54 incita a pensar que la escasez de jugadores de esa edad en la élite quizá no se deba a cuestiones biológicas, sino más bien a la motivación.

Hay poderosas razones para pensar que Lance Henderson tiene un brillante futuro. No sólo ha logrado su primer resultado de Gran Maestro a los 14 años, sino que redondeó su impresionante actuación con una victoria sobre la china Wenjun Ju, 2ª del mundo. Eso le sitúa empatado en el 8º puesto de la clasificación final (19º por desempate), en el mejor participante de habla hispana y en el más joven de los 30 primeros. Todos esos éxitos, sólo dos meses después de completar el título de Maestro Internacional, no pueden ser una casualidad.

La ceremonia de clausura también sirvió para anunciar un importante relevo. Tradewise deja de patrocinar el torneo, por razones empresariales, y el Gobierno de Gibraltar toma el testigo, lo que consolida su apuesta por el ajedrez, que ya es una parte esencial de la imagen de El Peñón.
