BTCh 6-Board Semi-Final 2015-03
MTK 4-Hort 2
I saved a bad position with a useful draw as Black.
Board 3 Bokros,I-Yip
My position was awful and I made is worse with 20..h5(diagram)
White had a think and played the obvious 21.Nxg6! and won a pawn.
Later in the game I was still wriggling around after 32..Rg8(diagram)
White played 33.Re2 giving back two pawns and I was back in the game.
Somehow my luck continued and in the rook ending I stood better after 43.Rh7(diagram)
I should have played 43..Ke5! and Black is winning with the active king and fast a-pawn. Instead I focused on counterplay with 43..a5 and eventually earned a draw.
So there it is. I must study openings, middlegames and endings.
