J. Morrison vs S. Scarpetta, G1

1-6 here is correct with following (sooner or later) 15-18. In position on diagram Jim played 14-18 ?? and immediately lost by pretty shot 31-27, 2-6, 19-16 (the true is that boring 26-23 wins too) 12x19, 26-23, 19x26, 30x7, 3x10, 20-16 etc WW

U. Hydyrov vs J. Tikhy, G1

On diagram #1 last red move 8-11? was incorrect, allowing white to score scientific win after 25-22. Instead, white played 25-21 and game went into drawn path for long time until position on diagram #2. here we had 11-16 ?? (19-23 draw) 17-13 ?? (32-27 win) 19-23 to draw.

There were more errors in this game at earlier stage (for instance 24-20 instead 24-19 should win) but this one is most interesting and attractive. 17-22 as played in the game, loses by 28-24*, but 11-16 in position on diagram should win the game.

G. Owens vs P. Faleo, G1

I think we should start it from this point, nice midgame masterpiece. With hole on 2 it is always a good thing to keep trading column 32-27-23 in place. 26-23 is correct.

White played here losing 32-28? which breaks this column. Now it was red turn to screw things. They played radical 16-19 allowing white nice escape. Instead 16-19, excellent waiting 7-11 leads to immediate catastrophic disaster for white position.

From position on diagram: after 32-28 16-19 game continued 27-23, 19-24, 28x19, 15-24, 12-8*, 3x12, 26-22 etc Draw

M. Borghetti vs R. King, G1

Ironically, this is exactly the same position which I had against Lubabalo Kondlo in USA National 2012 in Lebanon TN, couple weeks prior QT in Lille. Strange enough, both outstanding players Ron King and Lubabalo Kondlo played here losing 26-23??, 7-11, 23x7, 16x23, 27x18, 15x22 etc RW.

26-22 instead 26-23 is correct and enough for draw. After the game Lubabalo asked me: "Is it something published ?" I can repeat my answer to him here: "Yes, it is well known PP".

Bashir Durdyev vs M. Bernini

We are almost in the beginning of game. After opening moves 9-13, 22-18, 10-14 white played 25-22 (see postion on diagram), red replied 7-10? and .., game was over. After this young and very potential Italian star played it perfectly to the rest of game and was awarded with win.

O. Kolin vs V. Shafir, G1

Here is short, compressed list of errors happened in this game before players reached position on diagram #1.
1) Red move 16-20 loses, 8-11 correct
2) White move 25-22 missed a win, 24-19 was correct
3) Red move 11-16 loses, 11-15 was correct

In position on diagram #1 white had a win after 18-15, 4-8, 22-18, 9-14, 18x9, 5x14, 13-9, 6-13, 15x6, 2x9, 19-16, 12x19, 23x16, 8-12, 28x19 and we reached position on diagram #2.

Continue from diagram #2: 14-17 (14-18 and 13-17 loses by 19-15*, 12x19, 26-23 WW), 19-15, 12x19, 26-22, 17x26, 30x16, 13-17, 16-12 17-22, 27-23* etc WW

Instead winning 18-15 on diagram #1, white played drawn 19-15, 10x19, 23x16, 12x19, 26-23, 19x26, 30x23, 4-8, 28x19, 9-14, 18-9, 5x14, 19-16, 12-19 and we reached position on diagram #2. White played 31-26 ?? (23-19 Draw) and lost after 12x19, 23x16, 7-11*, 16x7, 2x11 WW

White to move.

R. Beckwith vs F. Kareta, G1

29-25 ?? (15-18 correct), 26-23* etc RW - the only mistake white made in this long game.

I will post 2nd game of 3rd round later under this topic and separate post.

Continue processing 2nd game in 3rd round. Tournament is getting deeper and people get more tired and produce more nice fruits and materials for my article :D

J. Tikhy vs U. Hydyrov, G2

It is very interesting to see how this winning for white position (23-18, 15-19, 18-15, 19-24, 15-11 etc WW) is transform into complete lost only after 3 moves: 16-12? (draw now), 7-11, 32-28, 11-16, 23-18 ?? (loses, 22-18 is OK for draw), 15-19, 18-15, 21-25 etc RW

Red to move.

C. Freeman vs I. Martynov, G2

This is well known position from Octopus, also well covered in Sixth, SG-48 when I annotated my game with Richard Beckwith from USA NAtional 2004. This excellent drawn idea in position on diagram 1-6, 17-13, 6-10 etc with easy draw was demonstrated first time against me by oustanding OH Master Louis Cowie in OH State tourney 2008 (or 2009 ?). Chuck also discovered it this play (1-6 etc) on his own ... or was aware of it.

Since then I never used this line on serious occasion. First time I used with success this attack in USA vs GB & I International Match against Jim McCarthy in 2001, Morecambo

White to move

B. Durdyev vs D. Oliphant, G2

Draw was available after 25-21, 2-7, 26-23 etc Draw, but white played losing 26-22? and lost after 18-23, 22-18, 23-26, 18-14, 26-20, 25-21, 30-26, 14-19, 26-23, 9-5, 23-18, 5-1, 6-10, 13-9, 18-15 WW

Red to move.
Image
M. Bernini vs Bashim Durdyev, G2

The opening was new, INFERNO, but position is known in PP from regular deck transposition. 14-17 is the only drawn move here known for half of century and 4-8? as played in game, loses. However ... after 4-8 white played 22-17?! instead winning 22-18 (wrong touch ?) and game eventually eneded with draw.

Diagram #1. Red to move ......... Diagram #2. Red to move.

R. King vs M. Borghetti, G2

See position on diagram #1. Very important mix here.

- 7-11* here is draw but Ron played losing 6-10?

- After 6-10 the only winning move is 26-23 but Michele played drawn 25-22 ? and game continued: 9-13, 16-12, 8-11, 12-8, 11-16, 20x11, 7x16, 8-3 ... see position on diagram #2.

Official Text of game shows only one (losing) red move here 10-15? Does it mean Ron was fortfeited on time ? In fact - red still has draw in position on diagram #2: 16-20, 24-19, 20-24, 3-8, 24-27, 8-11, 27-31, 11-16, 14-18*, 22x6, 31x22, 21x14, 2x18 Draw !

S. Thrane vs J. Jolliff, G2

Another "gift schange" ... 23-19? (25-22 wins), 14-18? (14-17 draw. After 14-18 white played it correctly to the end and won the game.

P. Faleo vs G. Owens, G2

Very complicated and confusing position. I hate to put any question marks into my comments generated by program ! 7-10 here is still a draw, but 1-5 as played in game, loses.

Thank you Ingo for the link very interesting.

For those like myself who do not understand Italian I have used Google tranlate and posted it under another thread for those who are interested and would like to read it in English.
