Discussion and analysis about a full game.

In the 10x10 world it is common for some grandmaster to comment during the game for the spectators (away from the playing room of course), reviewing lines and entertaining ideas.
There are also daily columns on sites and newspapers. Ron King is super experienced, outside analyses is nothing new to him, he probably relies more on his own counsel.

(A): The White Dyke. An attempt to get a draw for white, but not offering much chances to score.
(B): Usual is 7 ... 26-23. The text move ends in a structure that is surprisingly hard to play for white, but still drawable.
(C): Theory prefers 10. ... 32-27 to draw. Elbert Lowder once tried 10. ... 31-27 against Asa Lot betteong (US Nationals 1980) and lost. Ron King's move is certainly not better then 10. ... 32-27, and might be the cause for his loss, but at least it is a step in the wrong direction.
(D): 11. 18-22 was already very strong at this point.
(E): 11. ... 30-25 to stop the 18-22 idea was called for. Now Ron King seems to fight for a lost cause.
(F): 14. ... 30-26 was played in Morrison-Lowder, US Nationals 1996, but red eventually won.
(G): After long thought Scarpetty realizes that due to the strong piece at 18, which can not be removed, white will eventually end up in zugzwang.
(H): As now 15. ... 30-25 does not win the piece: 16. 6-10 25x18, 17.10-15 and red wins.a
(I): A cunning attempt to create complications in his opponents time trouble.
(J): And here red atually misses the easier 21.14-17, but the position is still a win for red, and red manages to convert that.


Score : Scarpetta 2, King 1, Drawn 17, 4 games to go

OK, to clarify, I mean the contestants themselves should not be allowed online analysis while a game is in progress, but at other times during the match
it may be part of their preparation! For the 2013 Chess WCM, Susan Polgar and other chess grandmasters had very good online commentary that you
did not have to be a chess expert to understand. And yes, she was criticized for that! :)

Attention: turning point ! See diagram below. The only sound move here is 30-25*. 17-14 loses by 1-6 and 30-26 loses by 5-9. After 30-25, 5-9 white should play 31-26* to draw. And 30-25, 11-15 can be meet by 25-22, 18x25, 29x22, 15-19, 20-16* Draw. Nice middlegame masterpiece.

S. Scarpetta vs R. King, 20

White to move and draw

BTW. I played this line once with E. Bruch and, instead suspicious 25-21?, played 32-27-24-19 to a peaceful, uneventful draw.

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

About analyses during the game or match ... I don't care. They are not prohibited today that's why I am doing this, if it will be prohibited, then I won't do this.

I don't care of this as analyst and as player. If someone will comment my games during match - why not ?! This is great promotional tool and grab more people attention.

Also Internet is a free space for free people :D ACF as organization can prohibit doing this on ACF website, but nobody can command other websites for adding comments / analyses ... unless no broadcasting provided and no games delivered publicly during match.

In game #21 Ron King didn't show up in the tournament room. I didn't understand very well the reason - something with ticket confusing. Referee started clocks and after 1 hour confirmed Sergio win in game #21. Match score is 3-1-17 and 22nd game is in progress.

For details read "Sixth" about title controversy in 2001-2003 :D :D :D This book can be ordered in ACF Store on this site.

I do not understand that at all......I wonder what his excuse was. In any case, this match is pretty much over now. Congrats to Sergio! (just about)

If Barbados Draughts Federation wants to be a part of WCDF (and delegate players) - it has to accept 2014 WTM results and recognize Sergio as a true new GAYP World Champion. WCDF also has to make decision about Ron behavior. This cannot be tolerated now and never ! It's not only 2014 deal with Ron-Sergio, but for any future upcoming matches.

BTW. Who will be next challenger in GAYP ? :D

If Ron wants to return title back, he needs to play in QT which automatically means - he accept Sergio win in 2014 WTM.

I suspect that Suki will be back in the GAYP World Championship cycle someday, if he decides to take this defeat as a wakeup call and shape up his game. In this match, he made too many losing moves and was not prepared in the openings. He was not particularly well-prepared in the last couple of matches either. But he still has most of his old cross-board talent, which is as good as anyone's. It is about time that he did some really hard work in preparation. And then he can be much stronger than he ever was.
