Amator Cup Rd8 2012-11

I made another draw from a sharp and dubious looking position.

At the end of Rd7 there was a 5-way tie for first with the following all at 4.5/7

  • Zilhani,G
  • Bodrogi.L
  • Czibulka,Z
  • Molnar,L
  • Yip,M 

Bodrogi resumed his winning ways and beat Zilhani and sits in first with 5.5/8. The others were still playng when I left.

Round 9 on 2012/11/24 at 14:00
Czibulka and Bodrogi,L are showing great strength in the late going while I am limping along to the finish.

Here is my Rd8 game.

Nagy,L (1958) – Yip,M (2085)
Old Indian[A53]

Amator Cup (8), 23.11.2012

White has parted with a pawn for an attack and black accidentally dared white to come the the 7th rank. Assess this sharp position. The long diagonal is blocked, h7 and g7 are covered and black is threatening to consolidate with …Rad8. The ..Bxg3+ threat lingers but is very dangerous. I was not worried at this point.
What do you think?
  • The position is complex and unclear
  • Black is better
  • The position is even. White has nothing and black holds on with precision defence
  • White has compensation for the pawn but nothing concrete
  • White can force a stable advantage
  • White has a combination
  • Something else

White to Play
