From ACF National 2006

Several interesting moments from National.

A)

#1. A. Moiseyev vs R. Hallett
Image
Red to move and draw

See diagram #1. It was my last control move #26 and I had less than one minute on clocks. I played fast 17-21 ? and lost the game after 25-22.

Instead ... 14-10 1-5 10-14 28-24 17-21 25-22 21-25* 19-15 11-18 22-15 14-18* gets a pretty man down draw with right move ! Isn't pretty ? (see diagram #2)

White to move, red draw

#3. L. Keen vs A. Moiseyev

White to move

Continue from diagram #3 (as played in the game) ... 32-28 1-6 31-26 10-15* 18-14 6-10* 14-9 15-19* 16-12 11-16 22-18 10-14* 9-6 14-17 18-15 7-10* 6-2 10-14 2-6 14-18* Draw ! Well and nicely played by Mr. Keen

#4. R. King vs A. Moiseyev
Image
Red to move and win.

In real game Suki missed a win by playing 2-7? 27-24 7-10 25-21 1-5 22-17* 15-22 17-13 9-14 24-19 22-26 19-12 11-15 12-8 26-31 8-3 31-26 3-8 26-19 8-11 19-24 Draw

As soon as game was over, I immediately asked him - why he didn't play in position on diagram #4 9-13* 18-14 15-19 23-18 19-24 27-23 1-6 * etc RW

Amazingly, Ron said that he miscalculated 9-13 27-24 17-13 22-13 15-29 24-19 thinking (mistakenly) it is a draw, because white arrives back on time. WOW

D)

#5. L. Keen vs A. Moiseyev
Image
Red to move

Continue from diagram #5 as played in real game (without comments) :

4-8 28-24 8-11 31-26 3-8 9-5 2-7 21-17* 6-9 23-18* 16-23 26-19 and after several moves red resigned.

*****************************************************************************

E)

R. Beckwith vs E. Bruch
Image
White to move and win

Can you win this position for white ? 90-years old (!) veteran, after playing 12 hours by the end of, day failed :roll: to do this and Richard Backwith survived ! Can you do it better than grandmaster without using a program ? :lol:
