Board 2 Yip-Czili,A

The top two boards were decisive. I faced the aggressive Benoni but got nothing from the opening.

After 36..Kh7(diagram)

I  tried for the win with an exchange sacrifice for enough compensation earlier and the game arrived at this tense position. I played for the logical 37.Rxb7 winning a pawn, making a threat and establishing a rook on the 7th rank. However, this was a losing mistake and Black had a winning attack after 37..Rg8!

Later in the game after 44..Rxe4(diagram)

After 44..Rxe4

The position looks double-edged and I thought White was still in the game with winning chances. I played the aggressive 45.Qf6(diagram)

After 45.Qf6

I made what I thought was a forcing move. The queen attacks f7 and clears the way for the d-pawn to advance. The Bg3 was sufficiently protected so I was pretty happy.

Black then found a nice move 45..Rf4+!! (diagram) and now it’s game over.

After 45..Rf4+!!

I played 46.Ke2 but on 46..Re6+ 0-1 and it was time to go home.
