Innovative Concept Academy
‘The Innovative Concept Academy is a new idea in public education. The school, located in the old Blewett School building at 1927 Cass Avenue in Saint Louis, is the product of the collaborative efforts of the Saint Louis Public School District, the Missouri Family Court, and MERS-Goodwill and is the brainchild of Judge Jimmie Edwards…The Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis has partnered with the Innovative Concept Academy to provide specific programs that fit this approach.(more)’
Here is a win from Boros.

CCSCSL GM Inv Saint Louis USA (5.3), 28.11.2012
Critical Position 1
There is an attack in the air on the kingisde where black has just played 17…hg. What do you recommend for white?
-White needs more pieces 18.Ba3 chases off the defending rook
-Bc1 should be on the long diagonal to oppose Bf6 so 18.Bb2 followed by Rad1 and prepare c4-d5. This will also restrain Bb7
-Re1 can do more so 18.Re3-h3 to use the h-file is called for
-Ng5 has lost its usefulness. 18.Ne4 recentralizing and allowing Bh6! to exploit the kingside light squares is better
-Slow builiding with 18.Bd2 and then Re3 and Rae1 is the way to go. Then white will be ready with sacrificing on e6 or g6 to kill black’s king position
