RAC Season End Event 2014

RAC Club had a blitz tournament and lecture by FM Mihok,L to close out the season. There was a massive snack table and we had three massive pizzas too.

Ashley Tapp(CAN) dropped by with her brother Jacob and mum Sophia as club guests. Ashley is living and training in Budapest to up her game. She has just played in the Art Pub FIDE Open and the Budapest Spring Festival tournaments and will play in as many Hungarian tournaments as possible for valuable experience.

Mihajlova,Diana’s Art on Chessbase

Art

Here is some chess passion from Budapest artist(and chessplayer) Mihajlova,Diana. For the complete article see Chess is Art!! 

Mihajlovava,Diana-Photo by Chessbase

(excerpt)

‘The fifteen paintings on the theme of chess, which are the subject of this article, were created over a three-year period intercepted with long breaks of playing chess, writing about chess, organising tournaments, travelling and daydreaming. By now, they are disconcertingly longing for prospective tender owners.

I take it literally, when Alekhine says: ‘Chess is art’. In my mental capacity, I can only see chess as art. I could relate to it as a language, too, and also, I agree with Paul Morphy when he says that ‘Chess is eminently and emphatically the philosopher’s game’. Naturally, mathematics, logic, science, sport are all part of it, but they do not touch my sensibility. Jose Raul Capablanca gave his own definition: “Chess is something more than a game. It is an intellectual diversion which has certain artistic qualities and many scientific elements.”(more)

Art Pub 2014-04 Memories

I played pretty bad but at least I made another chess friend, Dorina(Thanks to the parents for taking the pic). We had a couple of practice games(she got 1.5/2) before one of the rounds where I managed to miss a couple of little tactics.

I went on to miss quite a few more tactics during the tournament.

Art Pub Kupa 2014-04 Final Standings Rd7

Standings

IMs Szalanczy, Emil and To, Nhat Minh shared first with 6/7. I had a great time but had an awful performance with 3.5/7.

A big well done for the organizers who ran a smooth tournament and managed also to produce PGNs for all the games in the tournament.

I spent the day trying to forget my horrible play but soon the games must be examined as I try to figure out what went wrong….

One exiting moment came in my game against Katona,G. I tried an Alekhine’s Defence and fumbled my way through the game, reaching the following position after 44.Qxb7(diagram).

White had been trying to kill me but lost his way in the opposite colored bishops attack.

Katona,G-Yip after 44.Qxb7

I found 44..Qg3! for the winning attack and mate could not be stopped. White tried some checks 45.Rh7+ Kg5 46.Qd5+(diagram) I was quite short of time and not 100% sure who was going to mate who.

Katona,G-Yip after 46.Qd5+

Now I interposed with 46..Rf5! and held my breath. White continued the checks with 47.Qd8+ Kf4 48.Qd6+ Re5(diagram)  My king marched up the board but I still could not see the end of the checks.

Katona,G-Yip after 48..RE5

More checks followed with 49.Qf8+ Ke3 50.Qh6+(I missed this) Diagram

Katona,G-Yip after 50.Qh6+

The Black king has become an attacker and is completely safe in White’s half of the board. I played the next move quickly.

50..g5!(Diagram)

Katona,G-Yip after 50..g5

White has no way to resist as mate is coming soon, so 0-1.

The hard working organizing team-Well done!

Some players had fabulous performances, notably

  • Xiao Hu, Chen
  • Kovacs, Bence
  • Szucs, Edina
  • Dibusz, Domonkos
  • Gombocz, Ferenc Jr.
  • Shan, He Jia Rita

Demeter, Dorina thinking hard
