It’s game over on 27..g4! Well, it had been strategically game over for some time and the axe fell with no mercy.

Benoni 7.Nge2[A65]

Budapest Open(3), 19.08.2013

I tried a new anti-Benoni system with the d5-e4-f3 central pawn chain which gave a good position after some risky play by black.

Position 1
I played 19.Nfe4 taking the center and aiming at the hole on g5 but 19.Ra4! was better and the h-pawn falls.

18..Bxf5
Results
Zoldy continued his incredible upset streak with another win over Kormos,Adam. IM Meszaros used a London System and a queenside attack to win against the veteran Lakat. Heyl’s Sicilian Kan was broken with an exchange sacrifice.

Budapest Open 2013 Rd2

Results and Standings
Zoldy was again the big man winning another upset game. Papagorasz won nicely with a …Nxf2! combination catching white’s king in the center and then winning the queen. Palla did well to get a draw with a solid Queen’s Indian. I thought Csabai had a good position in the early middlegame with a modest Reti but when I returned the game was over with Erdos winning.

My opponent made a quick draw offer on move 11 which I could not really refuse as black so I accepted and enjoyed a light day.


Thanks to Heyl,Thomas(GER) for the pictures. Heyl also did well to draw with WFM Toth.
