IL 2007, selected games

Postby Alex_Moiseyev on Mon Apr 02, 2007 1:48 am

Just returned back home for Marion, IL Everything was excellent as usually, many thanks to directors and organisors. This year I didn't have any competition. 4 copies of SIXTH were sold and one gifted to young player.

Here are several games which I played in Marion. Any comments and / or corrections will be welcome and highly appreciated.

Red to move and draw

A. Yes, I played this losing move again !

B. Make it easy for red and perhaps miss a win. 25-21 would be more accurate and proper and probably win the game.

White to move ........................... 21-17? loses, 10-6* Draw

A. This move is weak indeed but still has some fans and lovers of adventure! I played this line with R. Hallet in 2005 GAYP US Nt to draw.

B. 21-17 is the best way to play going to manup line which is not as strong for red as in FIFE.

C. Kingsrow opening book recommends here 7-11 as best.

D. See diagram #3 after trade.

E. Loses. See diagram #4 before 21-17? The program proved that after 10-6 red can't win.

9-13? loses ............................... Red to move, white wins

A. Another midgame masterpiece ! I claim a white win here all way down after this move. See diagram #8. 4-8 is corerct for draw though not easy to proceed.

B. See diagram #9. During and right after the game I thought that red can still draw this position after 7-10 24-19 10-14 etc. I even told this to my opponent after the game was over. Wrong ! The program proved that white still has a pretty technical win after 7-10.

Souter

Postby Michael Holmes on Fri Apr 06, 2007 9:13 pm

Yes, Alex does like the Souter. He played it on me twice. The odd thing was that it was in the TN tourney and then the following year in the next TN tourney! He used his usual vary but both games were drawn.

Phantom, the last time I had this position with Alex I played 29-25 and he the played the souter, this time I deciced to play 17-13 and expected him to play the pioneer. I knew that he could play 4-8 and that it was supposed to be weak but, I didn't know how to attack it. I will know the next time.

Gene,

There's some play (and other variations) on this line in your copy of the Ohio book, as Alex and I had this in the GAYP portion of our match.
