Budapest TCh 2014 Rd10
RAC I lost while RAC II won. I contributed an unfortunate loss with white after I gave a P early to Takacs,Kevin. What was more sad was I missed some wins in the complications during the game.
I was going for a massage in an exchange Queen’s Gambit, against the isolated QP but was having some trouble with the Bb4 pin. After some tense maneuvering the following position was reached.
I found the simple blunder 23.a3?(played too quickly) 23..Nxa3(wins a P) 24.ba Bxc3 25.Red1 b4
Complex play followed as black continued 26..Bb2 27.Nc5 Qb6?(diagram)
Now I forked with 28.Na4 Qa5(diagram)
Now white can wins a piece with 29.Rxc8 Rxc8 30.Nxb2(diagram)
Now if 30…bxa3 31.Be1! and white keeps the extra piece or 30..Qxa3 31.Be5! and white is winning.
The game continued 29.Nxb2 ba?(diagram). Black is hoping to win the knight which seems to be trapped.
Now 30.Be1! wins a piece. as 30..Qb5 31.Qxb5 ab 32.Nd3(the knight escapes).
I played 30.Be5(trying to set up a mating attack with 31.Bxf6 etc) and attacking the b-pawn and the fight continued.
Much later in the game after 50..Qd6(diagram) I again missed a chance to turn the game.
I should have played 51.Rb7!(activating the rook with tempo and hitting g7) which wins as black has no reasonable way to defend the g-pawn.
(a) 51..Bd7 52.Qf3(attacking d5)
(b)51..Bf7 52.Qb5!(threatening 52.Rxf7! and black has no moves
I played instead 51.Qf3? hitting the d-pawn immediately and eventually lost.
