2015 Ohio State Tournament

Postby rich beckwith on Sun Jun 21, 2015 10:10 pm

After some delay with the Medina hotel under renovation, the Ohio State tournament will play September 12 & 13 at Marriott Courtyard, Willoughby, Ohio.

Prize fund will be approx. $1000. Format is 7 rounds (3-move restriction) starting Saturday morning, and finishing with Rounds 5, 6 & 7 on Sunday.

The Marriott is located east of Cleveland near where I-271 and I-90 meet. Exit at Ohio Route 91, turn right (North), then turn right at Maplegrove (Bob Evans, Eat N Park, and CVS Drugstore are on this corner), and Marriott is on the left. Besides Appleby's next door, there are about a dozen restaurants, grocery store, and 2 drug stores within a couple blocks, plus a food bar within Marriott.

Here is the reservation link guests can use to make online reservations:

My both games with Louis this year were very attractive and interesting. It is an amazing fact that Louis in his age do not try to stay on publish play (which he still knows very well) and do not try to trade pieces. In every game he continue discovery and doing experiments ... sometimes successful, sometimes - not very successful! :D

Diagram #1. .......................... Diagram #2. .......................... Diagram #3.
Image .. Image .. Image
Red to move. ........................ White to move ....................... White to move

A) See diagram #1. Kingsrow opening book shows here only 7-10. I trade here 23-19. Why not ? Everything after trade looks safe for red (in my blind eyes!)

B) See diagram #2. Louis played here 24-20? which seems to be a loss. Instead, 24-19 was correct. Continue: 10. 11-16 (or 7-10 first) 29-25 11. 7-10 17-14 12. 10x17 21x14 13. 3-7 19-15 14. 16-19 31-26 15. 6-10 15x6 16. 1x17 13x6 17. 2x9 25-22 18. 9-13 18-14 19. 7-11 27x18 20. 11-16 18-15 21. 19-23 26x19 22. 16x23 22-18 23. 17-22 Draw

C) I suspect Louis miscalculated strength of this trade.

D) Or 29-25, 16-19, 25-22, 19x28, 31-27, 15-19, 27x18, 19-23 etc Red Wins

E) Red temporary return extra man but trapped white pieces. Eventually man will be taken back.

F) Fresh, original game.

Interesting game.

The play from move 5 (11-16 trunk) up to move 10 of Note B (29-25) is the same as Bruch v Tinsley US Nat1994.
Here Bruch played 3-8 to an eventual loss.
The play from move 13 Note B(3-7) to move 17 (25-22) is in Kear's Opening 10, Var 46.

Liam, do you have full text of this game ? Kingsrow shows a draw after 3-8.

A lot of hidden beauties ...

31-26 16-20 (Loses, 8-11 Draw) 25-22 (Missing 19-15 win) 8-11 19-15 11-16 26-19 16-23 15-10 6-15 13-6 1-10 18-11 7-16 27-18 2-7 (Missing 20-24 Draw man down) 18-14 16-19 30-26 19-24 22-18 12-16 18-15 White (Tinsley) won.

The program proves that M. Tinsley missed a win here, but draw was extremely hard to perform.
