J. Morrison vs M. Bernini, G1

Famous winning idea in this relatively unevenful opening 10-15, 24-19, 15x24. Earlier in this game white played 29-25 which is already inaccurate and make it harder for white, but not loses. Only in position on diagram #1 30-26?, as played, was a losing move.

Continue from diagram #1: 30-26 (A), 6-9, 32-28, 9-13, 24-20, 15x24, 28-19 11-15 and we reached position on diagram #2. Bashim lost by 25-21 (B) 15x24, 22-18, 24-27, 18x9, 27-31, 26-22, 31-27, 22-18, 4-8, 9-6, 8-11 RW

A. 25-21 (or 32-28 first) draw after 6-9, 32-28, 9-13, 24-20, 15x24, 28x19, 11-15, 30-25* (30-26 loses), 15-24, 22-18 etc Draw

B. 19-16 12x19, 23-16, 14-17, 25-21, 10-14 and red shall play 14-18 and catch a man.

O. Kolin vs J. Tikhy, G1

In position on diagram #1 Oleksandr played anti-positional 4-8? which suppose to lose. 11-15 here was correct and enough for draw. However later Jaroslav didn't play it accurately, missed a technical complicated win and finally players reached position on diagram #2. Draw was still available here by 22-18*, 15-22, 23-18 with followng 18-15. Instead 18-15, Jaroslav played 13-9 and lost.

R. King vs F. Kareta, G1

In position on diagram #1 Ron played 1-6 which is in general is OK. However, he had much stronger and posien continuation 14-18* giving white too much troubles and forcing Filip to make some star moves !

Game continued from diagram #1.

1-6, 22-17, 8-11, 32-27 (26-23 draw), 4-8, 30-25? (loses, 27-23 was still a draw after 8-12, 23-16, 12x19, 26-23, 19x26, 30x23, 3-8, 31-26* etc Draw), 14-18, 17-14, 10x17, 21x14 ... and we reached position on diagram #2.

Here Ron played mistakenly 6-9 and missed a win. Sometimes this kind of trade works, sometimes - doesn't. In Lille this trade gave Ron most troubles - missing a win against Filip Kareta (though later Filip still lost game) and losing game to Sergio Scarpeta in late round.

After 6-9 trade in position on diagram #2 Filip played 26-23? and lost. Instead, he can still drew it after (from diagram #2) 26-22*, 19-23 (or 8-12, 22-17, 9-13, 25-22*, 18x25, 29x22, 7-10, 14x7, 3x10, 31-26* etc Draw) 22-17, 23x32, 17-13 etc Draw with long complicated play

I. Martynov vs U. Hydyrov, G1

Igor played here 15-19? to draw. He missed an excellent chance to trap white pieces by 7-10* which leads to red scientific win.

D. Oli[hant vs S. Thrane, G1

See interesting and instructive position on diagram #1. WHite just played 30-25?. Instead this move, 27-23 (with following 23-18 trade) would be OK to stay away of troubles. However, in position on diagram #1 it seems like white still OK and no dangers on horizon ? Wrong ! After 3-7 with followng 12-16 against 25-21, red has 100% scientific win. Beautiful midgame masterpice.

Later Mr. Oliphant missed a win and finally game reached position on diagram #2. Again, it seems now like complete loss for white, no matter the move. And again wrong ! Sune still had a chance to secure here scientific draw by playing 19-15*, but lost unevenfully after 21-17? - important and crucial wasting time and tempo.

I will continue processing 2nd game of round 4 in next post.

Round 4, Game 2 Selected Positions ...

Red to move

J. Joliff vs V. Shafir, G2

From available portion of game, this is the only moment I find where win was missing. Red defineley should play here 16-19 with following 7-11-16 and raisng pressure on white and get scientific win. Instead, John played in position on diagram 14-17 ?! taken away most of red advantage.

P. Faleo vs S. Scarpetta, G2

Actually 17-21 here is a draw after 26-22, 21-25, 30x21, 7-10, 16x7, 14-17, 21x14, 10x26, 7-2, 26-31 etc Draw. However, in position on diagram Paolo choose much more impressive tactical way: 3-8!, 12x3, 17-21, 3x21, 13x31, 16x7, 31x15 Draw !!

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

S. Thrane vs D. Oliphant, G2

In this game score was even: everyone messed up 2 times thats why game ended with draw.

Continue from diagram #1 ... 20-16 (loses, 13-9 was correct with following play: 1-5, 30-25, 8-11, 26-22, 3-8, 22-17, 18-22 etc Draw), 12x19, 23x16, 8-12 (missing a complicated win by 2-7), 16-11, 12-16, 30-25 (loses, 13-9 was correct: 16-19, 9-5, 2-6, 11-7*, 3x10, 21-17, 14x21, 26-23 etc Draw) ... and we reached position on diagram #2.

Here 1-6, 2-6 and 16-19 are winning moves, but red played 15-19 ?? to draw.

C. Freeman vs Bashim Durdyev, G2

It seems like red pieces are completely trapped, but ... not yet ! Charles played here 6-10? and lost immediately after 13-9. However, in position on diagram he still had a wonderful escape: 18-22*, 26x17, 6-10*, 14-9, 5x14, 13-9, 19-24*, 28x19, 15x24, 17-13, 12x19, 9-6 (or 32-28, 11-15, 9-6, 2x9, 13x6, 19-23 etc Draw), 2x9, 13x6, 14-17 etc Draw

Red to move.

U. Hydyrov vs I. Martinov, G2

Red played here 2-7? and lost quickly after 22-17, 12-16, 17x10, 7-14, 15-10 etc WW. However, in position on diagram red still can survive after complicated 12-16*. White has a number of powerful continuations here and I propose readers to discover a draw for red on their own.

F. Kareta vs R. King, G2

In position on diagram #1 Ron missed a win 25-21, 2-7, 21x14, 10x19, 23-18 and red eventually run out of moves after 17-21 or get catastropihic disaster after 6-9. Instead winning 25-21, Ron played 27-24 and game continued ... 17-21, 24-20, 6-9, 13x6, 2x9, 23-18, 9-13 (9-14 much easy draw), 20-16, 11x20, 18x11 and we reached position on diagram #2.

Very important crucial moment. 10-15 here with followng 5-9-14-17 would be correct way, but Filip played 20-24?. Now only 11-7 wins, but Ron played 11-8 giving Filip still chance to escape narrowly by 10-14*, 8-4, 14-17*, 4-8, 3-7* and white can't stop red piece on 7 run to square 23, trade everything and clean the board. Instead, Filip pitched a man 24-27? and eventually lost.

J. Tikhy vs O. Kolin, G2

See diagram #1. In very well known Pioneer formation red just played losing 3-8?. Instead correct winning 29-25*, white responded 30-25? (draw now) and game continued: 15-18 (11-16, 23-19, 16x23, 27x9, 20x27, 32x23, 12-16 also technical draw), 25-22, 18x25, 29x22, 11-15, 24-19, 15x24, 28x19, 8-11, 22-18, 1-5, 18x9, 5x14 and we reached position on diagram #2.

10x26? here, as played in game, loses but 11x18 still draw after 23-19, 12-16, 19x12, 18-22, 27-23, 22-25, 31-27, 25-30, 23-19, 30-26* Draw !

V. Shafir vs J. Jolliff, G2

Position on diagram #1 is well known to PP position where 6x24 jump is correct. Instead, Vitaly jumped other suspicious way which appears to be an earlier loss. Continue from diagram #1 ... 7x14, 29-25, 4-8, 25-22, 6-10 ...

See position on diagram #2. White had scientific win here by 18-15, 1-6, 22-17* etc WW, but played 22-17 and game continued ... 9-13, 18x9, 5x14, 26-22, 8-11, 30-26, 11-15, 32-28, 15x24, 28x19, 3-8 ...

See position on diagram #3. Last chance - white still had a strange rdaw here by 19-15*, 10x19, 17x10* (only here!), 12-16 (or 19-24, 23-19, 28-32, 27-23* etc Draw), 23-18, 19-24, 18-15, 24-28, 27-23, 28-32, 23-18 etc Draw with care of.

Selecting games from Round 4 completed now and I am expecting your feedback !

Continue from diagram #1 ... 20-16 (loses, 13-9 was correct with following play: 1-5, 30-25, 8-11, 26-22, 3-8, 22-17, 18-22 etc Draw), 12x19, 23x16, 8-12 (missing a complicated win by 2-7), 16-11, 12-16, 30-25 (loses, 13-9 was correct: 16-19, 9-5, 2-6, 11-7*, 3x10, 21-17, 14x21, 26-23 etc Draw) ... and we reached position on diagram #2.

Here 1-6, 2-6 and 16-19 are winning moves, but red played 15-19 ?? to draw.



From the second diagram I was so sure that I had a win, when discussing the game with Danny afterwards I tried to explain that I had a completely protected back rank, control of the center and that he had a weak double corner still he was quite sure that it was he who missed a win!!!!

The €25 I won from the bet almost made it worth missing the win :)
