GAYP WCM - DAY4

Postby Alex_Moiseyev on Thu Sep 11, 2008 10:29 am

As of 11:45 from Alan Millhone:

" ...Game 13. Two hours 41 moves. Glasgow. 3-7. 11-8 pitch line by lubabalo. Top notch checkers for me to watch two GM at work. Ron in time trouble in ending ... "

11-8 move is very weak if met properly. Instead "Ron is in time trouble" I would prefer to hear "Ron is in position trouble" :D Perhaps he is looking for win ?

Stay on ...

Regards,

Alex

"11-8 is good, all the early and most modern textbooks notwithstanding. For the original and daring player this pitch (11-8) is tailor-made" (Marion Tinsley)

Looks like WC differ on the opinion about this line, and maybe that is why Kondlo picked it.
BTW: He use it in Las Vegas 2007 as well.
Do you think Ron King went over these games ?
Let's see if he did.

From Alan Millhone:

G13 ended with draw in long ending where Ron missed a win.

Game 14 draw in 37 moves and 40 minutes. 11-15. 22-17. 8-11. 17-13.

=========================================================================

For Ingo: It is not a question if 11-8 is losing or not, it's a question of chances and
discpline in the World Championship. All these childish cheap tricks (like 11-8) shall not be
taken on serious occasion against serious opponent.

Anyway ... total score - 14 draws, no losses !

Stay on ...
