Scarpetta wins game 7 and leads!

1. Scarpetta, S. - King, R.
WCM (7), 6.7.2014

1.11-15 23-19 2.08-11 22-18 3.15:22 25:18 4.04-08 27-23 5.09-13 26-22 6.11-16 30-26 7.06-09 (A) 18-15? (B)
8.01-06! 32-27
[ Probaly King relied on the move 8...24-20 , but now he saw that to his horror that move loses to a pretty long shot: 9.10-14!! 20:04 10.14-18 23:14 11.09:25 29:22 12.03-08!! 04:11 13.07:30 ]
After this move the white pieces are cramped, and white will eventually lose a piece if not more... 9.16-20! 29-25 10.09-14 19-16
[ 10...22-18 11.07-11 18:09 12.05:14 26-22 13.11:18 22:15 14.02-07! 25-22 ( 14...31-26 15.07-11 26-22 16.11:18 22:15 17.13-17 and white has no move left. ) 15.12-16 19:12 16.10:26 loses ]
11.12:19 23:16 12.10:19 24:15 13.08-12 16-11 14.07:16 15-11 15.16-19! Nice. He gives his extra piece back to get the opponent into zugzwang. 27-24 16.20:27 31:15 17.12-16! 11-08 Giving the piece back, but it is lost anyway...
[ moving a piece on the other wing loses by a shot eg: 17...26-23 18.14-17 21:14 19.06-10 14:07 20.03:26 ]
[ Trying to avoid zugzwang does not work: 17...28-24 18.16-19 24-20 19.14-18 20-16 20.18-23 ]
18.03:12 15-11 19.06-10 28-24 20.16-20 24-19 21.20-24 11-08 22.24-27 08-03 23.27-32 26-23 24.32-28 2-0

Score: Scarpetta 1, King 0, Drawn 6, 17 games to go.

[Event "WTM Gayp 2014 - Day 2 - Game 8"]
[Date "2014-07-06"]
[Black "Ronald King"]
[White "Sergio Scarpetta"]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]
1. 11-16 21-17 2. 16-19 24x15 3. 10x19 23x16 4. 12x19 27-24 5. 7-10 24x15 6. 10x19 32-27 7. 3-7 22-18 8. 6-10 25-21 9. 10-15 18x11 10. 8x15 17-13 11. 4-8 13x6 12. 1x10 21-17 13. 5-9 29-25 14. 9-14 25-21 15. 2-6 27-24 16. 8-12 31-27 17. 7-11 27-23 18. 11-16 26-22 19. 19x26 30x23 20. 6-9 17-13 21. 16-20 13x6 22. 20x27 23-19 23. 15x24 28x19 24. 27-31 6-1 25. 31-26 22-17 26. 26-22 17-13 27. 22-18 13-9 28. 18-15 1-6 29. 15x24 6x15 30. 12-16 1/2-1/2

The third opening move that was tried in this match was 1.11-16, the Bristol, an opening reported to be especially popular in Babados. Sergio Scarpetta had no troubles to equalize, in contrast, he forced Ron King to make a series of star moves, beginning with 15.2-6. It seems like the Italian Champion is especially well prepared in his opsnings this time. The Champion however showed excellent defensive play when he needed it in very critical situation.

However, he needs to find an opening with red, in which he is able to avert some pressure, as he now trails by one game. Play commences tomorrow at 9.00 MEST with the livestream at:

Ron played here 18-15 ?? and lost after 1-6 ... and now 24-20 loses after pretty 10-14 20x4, 14-18, 23x14, 9x25, 29x22, 3-8 RW.

Game 9:

[Event "WTM Gayp 2014 - Day 3 - Game 9"]
[Date "2014-07-07"]
[Black "Sergio Scarpetta"]
[White "Ronald King"]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]
1. 11-15 23-19 2. 8-11 22-17 3. 3-8 (A) 25-22 4. 11-16 29-25 (B) 5. 16x23 27x11 6. 8x15 24-19 (C) 7. 15x24 28x19 8. 7-11 17-14 9. 9x18 22x8 10. 4x11 26-23 11. 11-15 32-27 12. 15x24 27x20 13. 5-9 30-26 14. 9-14 20-16 15. 12x19 23x16 16. 14-17 21x7 17. 2x20 31-27 18. 6-10 26-22 19. 1-5 25-21 20. 5-9 1/2-1/2


Notes:
(A) The Alma, not named after a beautiful woman, but to commemorate the victims of the bloody battle of Alma in the Crimean War (1854)
(B) Probably part of the home preparation by Ron King, as in their match in 2012 he had troubles to equalize in that seldom played, but very complicated opening.
(C) Heading straight for simplificaions and an easy draw.

Score:
Scarpetta 1, King 0, Drawn 8, 15 games to go.

(A) Ron avoids the main lines 3.12-16 or 3.8-11 by transposing into a Kelso opening (1.10-15), usually brought up by this move order: 1. 10-15 22-18, 2. 15x22 25x18, 3. 11-15 18x11, 4. 8x15, same as above.

(A) 6. ... 17-14 to a solid draw is the reknown theoretical recommendation. After the text move, an endgame results that looks innocent, but Scarpetta slighly misplays it, loses precious time, and runs into an endgame in which Ron King could play with a majority of Kings. However, the challenger secured the opposition and defendend well. After the longest struggle of this match he secured the draw.e

(B) A loss of time. 32. ... 11-8 saves time and draws easy.

(C) Probably he realized only at that moment that the clearing shot 33. ... 11-7 ends up in a loss.

(D) Maybe 41.14-18 offered more chances for a win.

Score: Scarpetta 1, King 0, Drawn. 12

New interesting and fresh play was shown in game #14.

See diagram below. This is well know position from Laird and Lady opening. Ron played this man down line with Jim Morrison in 1996 and won the game (one of two wins in this match). Jim played 12-16, 26-22, 19-23, 27x18, 13-17 and later lost it. Sergio improved red play here and in position on diagram played 19-23! 26x19, 13-17 and red has better position.

Excellent improvement of old line and nice preparation by Sergio.

(A): The Laird and Lady Opening, once reknown as the sharpest and complicated way to begin a game. The romantic name from the 19th century adds to the reputation of this opening.

But, over the centuries it has lost some credit, as many lines were found and today it is still well established, but the most exciting lines have been tamed by analysts and players.

(B): And here we find an improvement over the move 19. 12-16 that had been played in World Championship Matches before. Ron King had sweet memories with it, as he deafeated Jim Morrison with the white apieces in their 1996 World Championship match. However, Sergio is well-prepared and chooses a line that ends up in an enmding in which red had to be careful to draw.

After the game it turned out that it was in fact played in a correspodence match before: Al Lyman v Jim Loy ID 1996. Home preparation for a World Championship Match must be thorough.

(C) Only way to escape with a draw

Score: Scarpetta 1, King 0, Drawn 13, 10 games to go.




Score: Scarpetta 1, King 0, Drawn 12, 10 games gto go.

Full text of Game #15 will be posted later by Ingo, but I would like to highlight a critical moment.

S. Scarpetta vs R. King, WTM 2014, G15

White to move and draw.

I do believe that 23-18* here draws after 16-20, 18-14, 10-15, 14-9, 5x14, 17x10, 24-27, 31x24, 20x27, 10-7 etc. Ron played here losing 11-8? and now Sergio missed a technical win. Instead star winning 24-27* 31x24, 16-20, 30-25 (23-19 and 24-19 also lose), 20x27, 25x18, 27-31, 8-3, 10-14 etc RW. Instead winning 24-27, Sergio played 16-20? to a quick draw after 30-25.

All for now. After 15 games Sergio won 1 game and missed 2 wins. 20% blood.
