BTch 8-Board Amateur League 2015-16 Rd4

I contributed a quick win thanks to a gift in an equal position.

MTK played the Blind Institute on this chilly Monday evening. We played a man down and I don’t the final match score.

Vojan-Yip Board 2

After 18.g4(diagram)

Black has an extra piece and one may be excused for wondering what the problem could possibly be.


I found the almost magical tactic of winning a pawn with 18..Bxf2?? when there a couple of ways to just keep the extra piece.

There is no real explanation.

Yip was just no good.

However, my opponent blundered a piece later to even the scales of Xmas justice and I won.

Ho Ho Ho
