Gara,A-Maroroa

Find the knockout blow.

After 29..Nxe4

Kalaiyalahan-Gara,T

After 32.Nd6(Diagram)

The strong knight on d6 gives some compensation for the pawn but Black also has strongly centralized minor pieces.

A pawn is pawn so how should Black continue?

After 32.Nd6

Standings Rank after Round 2

It is too early to get exited as there is a traffic jam of undefeated teams at the moment.

Erdos-Steingrimsson rd1

After 18..Rc8(Diagram)

Black unnecessarily weakening his kingside pawns shield earlier and hopes the bishops and c-pawn will be enough compensation after taking the c5-pawn.

How should White deal with this plan?

After 18..Rc8

Gretarsson-Rapport,R rd1

Queen’s Indian Defence

Rapport played the Queen’s Indian quite creatively and exploited some optimistic but ultimately loosening pawn play by White.

After 44.Re7(Diagram)

The Ne5 is attacked.

How should Black continue?
