Developments in the Spanish-TWIC 1130
GM Papp,Gabor(HUN) played in the World Open.
Game 1: Li,R-Papp,G
Berlin Defence 5.Re1
White got nothing much in the opening but eventually won a P to reach an equal rook ending.
How to play the rook ending?
Game 2: Gabrielian,A-Esipenko,A
Black seemed to make quite reasonable moves but eventually got into some trouble on the kingside.
White is trying to attack. But how to continue now is a big question as Ra3 is not helping much on the kingside.
Game 3: Borisek-Ivanisevic
White tried to play against the queenside pawns with an early BxNc6 trade but did not get anywhere.
Black has the bishops and the centre. What next?
