Frech Károly 2013-06 Rd8

Here is my rd8 game.

I was getting crushed by Stern,T(black) who moved in for the kill with 32…Bh2, threatening ..Bg3#.

White to Play
32…Bh2

In the analysis with Stern and Varga,A(who I play in rd9), I showed what I missed-33.Re8+! Kg7 34.Rg8+ Kxg8 35.Qe8+ Kg7 36.Bh6+!! Kh6(or 36…Kf6 37.Qd8#) 37.Qf8#.

Too bad. Now my tactics have improved to the point where I can see things a bit too late.

RR Group
I lost my third game in a row(rather sadly) as I have become my own worst enemy. My opponent beat me in the same tournament last year with the same opening(1.c4) and just had his birthday-so Happy Birthday Aron.
Nagy,A(l) playing Yip,M(r)

Here is my round 5 game.

Position 1
Both players missed 12..f4 with the idea of 13.ef or 13.gf then 13…g4! and Nh3 is out of squares. Otherwise the idea is 13…f3 forking Qe2/Bg2.

12.Qe2

Group A Standings
Koczo shares the lead with Bodrogi,M with 3/4. Koczo beat me in the last game to finish from a bad position. I finally faded in the long RB-RB ending.

Position 1
My early middlegame position was quite promising after 20…Rd8 but I did not play 21.e4!

20…Rd8
 
Position 2
I pushed hard with 35.f6 and thought I had a crushing position but it was not as good as I thought.

34…Bh6
 
Position 3
I won a pawn but then retreated with 38.Rf3= instead of 38.Rf6 with an advantage. I kept pressing for the win but tried a bit too hard and lost.

In Yip-Kormos,

Position 1(30..e4)
I won a pawn in the middlegame with some sharp play and reached a clearly better ending after 30…e4. Play continued with 31.Rd2!? but my technique could not bring home the point.

30…e4


Position 2(57..Ne8+)
I have a choice of king moves after 57…Ne8+ but did not find 58.Ke7 or 58.Ke6 both winning with the Nxg6+ idea. I played 58.Ke5? and conceded a draw.

57…Ne8+

Koczo had a good position from the opening but had to fight for a draw in a R-R ending against Varga,Z eventually holding a theoretical drawn Philidor position.

Bodrogi,L opened with 1.b3 against Bodrogi,M but eventually was ground down in a RN-RB ending.

Juhasz,B faced the Tarrasch Defence from Zoldy and prevailed.

Nagy,Aron defended the 3.Bb5+ Bd7 Sicilian and won.

Alberta,Canada Flooding 2013-06(Non-Chess)

Alberta Flooding
Record flooding in the heart of the Alberta tar sands dramatically illustrates their threat to Canada’s ‘Serengeti’, the Mackenzie River basin.



Calgary’s mayor is warning that the worst of the flooding is yet to come after a significant portion of his city’s population spent the night pulling back to higher ground.

“I grew up here. I spent a lot of time on the Bow and Elbow Rivers and I have never seen the river that high or that fast,” Naheed Nenshi said at a news conference early Friday morning.

Heavy rains eight years ago caused flood damage to about 40,000 Calgary homes and resulted in the evacuation of more than 1,500 Calgarians. It resulted in $275 million in insured losses.






Calgary Flooding June 21,2013 from Scotsman’s hill overlooking Stampede Ground. 1 in 200 year event for the 2nd time in 7 years. The confluence of the Elbow and Bow is a kilometre or so from here.
