At the Tournament

I lost to my teammate Teglas,Balasz defending a Caro-Kann. My impersonation of Mr.Solid failed to materialise and I was slowly ground down into dust.

Results-Round 1

Birovecz Ben Jordan pulled off the big upset over Fodor Balazs(2122)

Teglas-Yip

Caro-Kann(B17)

The opening left theory very early due to my poor memory but nevertheless, I got quick equality and a position which I thought was hard to lose.

Developments in the Spanish-TWIC 1130

GM Papp,Gabor(HUN) played in the World Open.

The Spanish

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.

After 44.e4(Diagram)

How to play the rook ending?

After 44.e4

Game 2: Gabrielian,A-Esipenko,A

Zaitsev Variation(C92)

Black seemed to make quite reasonable moves but eventually got into some trouble on the kingside.

After 28..c4(Diagram)

White is trying to attack. But how to continue now is a big question as Ra3 is not helping much on the kingside.

After 28..c4

Game 3: Borisek-Ivanisevic

6.d3 d6(C84)

White tried to play against the queenside pawns with an early BxNc6 trade but did not get anywhere.

After 30.Kh1(Diagram)

Black has the bishops and the centre. What next?

After 30.Kh1

Games from Aczel(from TWIC 1130)

Aczel-Miturova Rd3

Torre Attack(A46)

White build up a strong attacking position from a nothing special opening. The Torre Attack uses a pawn triangle formation to secure the centre. More on triangles later.

After 19..Qf6(Diagram)

How should White continue?

After 19..Qf6

The pawn triangle in the Torre Attack gave a strong foundation for a later attack. Now let us see Messi use a triangle based attack in football.
