11 man ballot 2015 news.

Postby Alex_Moiseyev on Sat Jan 10, 2015 6:08 pm

Happy 2015 to everyone !

Here you can find more details about 11 man ballot news this year.

http://www.nccheckers.org/NCCA/2015%20W ... iseyev.htm

1) My World Title match with challenger Tim Laverty will be held in Burlington, NC on January 16-19 and, if necessary (in case of tie after 16 games), extend one more day (4 games) to Tuesday.

2) I also have challenge from the current GAYP World Champion Sergio Scarpetta who wants to compete for 11 man ballot World title. He submitted his challenge to me in Beijing and I accepted it, but match with Tim Laverty (official challenger) will be play first.

If I'll be able to retain my title in January, we have unofficial agreement with Sergio to play match over Memorial Day in ICHF. Charles Walker kindly agreed to host match in Petal if we don't comeup with anything better. Sergio will travel (more likely) for his own expense and all other expanses will be covered.

If Tim will be a winner of January match and title holder, Sergio has to talk with him and I will have an extra vacation week and spend more time with my family !

Your donations for my match with Tim and (maybe) Sergio - highly wanted and appreciated !

After 3 days, 12 games match ended 6-1-5 (17-7) to my favor. I will post rest of games later. Last day was even more bloody: I won 3 games and was in lost in the 4th game ! I want to thanks personally all contributors, JR Smith and Travis Weddle for their terrific help and work.

My 11 man ballot World Title match with next challenger - Sergio Scarpetta, Italy is on the way. Donations are highly wanted and appreciated !

As I said before, me and Sergio have preliminary agreement to play match over Memorial Day. As of now we have at least one bid from Charles Walker - ICHF.

Congratulations Alex, I had a very busy weekend and didn't get to see any of the games as they were being played online. It's no big surprise to me but I'm glad to learn you successfully defended your title.

Game 9. T. Laverty (0.58) vs A. Moiseyev (1hr. 8 minutes)

Red OFF 8, white OFF 27

1. 12-16 22-18 2. 16-20 32-27 3. 4-8 25-22 4. 8-12 30-25 5. 9-14 18x9 6. 5x14 22-18 7. 14-17 21x14 8. 10x17 25-21 9. 6-10 21x14 10. 10x17 24-19 11. 2-6 19-16 12. 12x19 23x16 13. 17-21 26-22 14. 21-25 18-15 15. 11x18 22x15 16. 25-30 15-11 17. 7-10 16-12 18. 10-14 11-8 19. 14-17 8-4 20. 6-9 4-8 21. 9-13 8-11 22. 30-26 31x22 23. 17x26 29-25 24. 13-17 25-21 25. 17-22 11-15 26. 22-25 15-18 27. 25-29 18-23 28. 26-30 28-24 29. 29-25 24-19 30. 25-22 19-16 31. 1-6 16-11 Draw

In my previous post I said that Tim had a win here, which is not correct. When me and Tim analyzed game, we mistakenly played 17-21 first instead 2-6 and this changed a verdict (19-16 after 17-21 loses).

Game 10. A. Moiseyev (49 minutes) vs T. Laverty (28 minutes)

Red OFF 8, white OFF 27

1. 12-16 22-18 2. 16-20 32-27 3. 4-8 25-22 4. 8-12 29-25 (loses) 5. 10-15 18-14 6. 9x18 23x14 7. 11-16 22-17 8. 6-9 14-10 9. 7x14 17x10 10. 9-14 26-23 11. 5-9 30-26 12. 9-13 25-22 13. 16-19 23x16 14. 12x19 27-23 15. 20x27 31x24 16. 2-7 23x16 17. 14-18 24-19 18. 18x25 28-24 19. 7x14 19x10 20. 25-30 26-23 21. 30-26 23-19 22. 26-23 24-20 23. 23-27 16-11 24. 27-24 19-16 25. 24-19 16-12 26. 19-16 Red Wins

Game 11. A. Moiseyev (1hr. 0 minutes) vs T. Laverty (50 minutes)

Red OFF 6, white OFF 27

1. 12-16 23-18 2. 1-6 32-27 3. 16-20 26-23 4. 11-15 18x11 5. 8x15 22-18 6. 15x22 25x18 7. 4-8 29-25 8. 10-14 25-22 9. 6-10 24-19 10. 8-12 30-25 11. 9-13 18x9 12. 5x14 31-26 13. 7-11 (A) 19-15 14. 10x19 23x7 15. 3x10 27-23 16. 10-15 23-19 17. 15x24 28x19 18. 20-24 26-23 19. 2-6 19-15 20. 12-16 15-11 21. 24-27 11-7 22. 27-31 7-2 23. 6-10 22-18 24. 31-27 18x9 25. 27x18 9-5 (loses) 26. 10-15 5-1 27. 15-19 1-6 28. 19-23 6-9 29. 23-26 2-6 30. 26-31 6-10 31. 31-27 Red Wins

A. It seems like I missed a win here by 3-8 but Tim later missed a draw.

Game 12. T. Laverty (20 minutes) vs A. Moiseyev (5 minutes)

Red OFF 6, white OFF 27

1. 12-16 23-18 2. 1-6 32-27 3. 16-20 26-23 4. 11-15 18x11 5. 8x15 22-18 6. 15x22 25x18 7. 4-8 29-25 8. 10-14 25-22 9. 6-10 24-19 10. 8-12 30-25 11. 9-13 18x9 12. 5x14 22-18 13. 14-17 21x14 14. 10x17 25-21 15. 17-22 19-15 16. 22-25 15-10 17. 7x14 18x9 18. 25-29 9-5 19. 29-25 5-1 20. 25-22 1-5 21. 13-17 (A) 21x14 22. 22-17 23-19 White Wins

In the last game Tim tried to repeat moves looking for draw and going to another day. I was OK with this scenario because I saw some play improvement for white.

A. This loses but white should play it carefully here to secure a draw.
