My Games

Here are some key positions from my games.

Rd1 Yip-Doracczi

I tried the Catalan for something different. Usually I aim for Queen’s Gambit Exchange Variation with Nf3 or Nge2 depending on my mood.

Black has just provoked a crisis in the centre.

Rd2 KK-Yip

It seemed like a good idea to take the queens off as quickly as possible and go from there.

After 15.Ba4(Diagram)

I managed to win from this harmless looking position.

Rd3 Yip-Szabo Marton Mihaly

I managed to make a draw against the eventual tournament winner in a mighty tough battle.

After 37..Bd8(Diagram)

White has the centre, the bishops and big pressure but needs to find the right idea.

Rd4 Kovacs,I-Yip

This was 1.c4 which turned into a Queen’s Gambit Declined. I hung on for the draw with some tough defence and a bit of luck.

After 30..f6(Diagram)

White missed a nice tactical blow.

Rd5 Yip-Forgacs,A

I introduced 4.Qc2 against the Nimzo-Indian when usually I play 4.e3 or avoid the whole mess with 3.Nf3.

After 21..Qb6(Diagram)

White has an extra doubled pawn but so what?

Rd6 Szollosi,L-Yip

I tried to be more solid with 1.e4 e5 but my opponent had other ideas after 2.d4 ed 3.f4

After 14.Qe1(Diagram)

Black has a nice position. I calculated 14..Ne3 winning when I went for the line leading to this position.

Find what I should have played.

And that’s my homework for the day.
