Budapest Tch Monday League 2014 Rd6
RAC 3-SZATAKI-EVM II 3
RAC tied the match with some up and down play on all boards. I contributed a win on board 3.
After 19.Bb3 black found some knight moves after 19..Nxa4 20.Bxa4 Nc3!(threatening to take the Ba4, ..Ne2+ fork and ..Nxa2 winning a P. White chose 21.Bd1 to stop 21..Ne2+ and after 21..Nxa2 black went up a clear P and won uneventfully.
The Monday league is one of the hidden little gems of Budapest chess. Teams fight it out on 6-8 boards and play is not rated giving players a chance to get additional practice without exposing FIDE points but just playing for personal and team pride.
