Frech Károly 2013-06 Rd8

Here is my rd8 game.

I was getting crushed by Stern,T(black) who moved in for the kill with 32…Bh2, threatening ..Bg3#.

White to Play
32…Bh2

In the analysis with Stern and Varga,A(who I play in rd9), I showed what I missed-33.Re8+! Kg7 34.Rg8+ Kxg8 35.Qe8+ Kg7 36.Bh6+!! Kh6(or 36…Kf6 37.Qd8#) 37.Qf8#.

Too bad. Now my tactics have improved to the point where I can see things a bit too late.

RR Group
I lost my third game in a row(rather sadly) as I have become my own worst enemy. My opponent beat me in the same tournament last year with the same opening(1.c4) and just had his birthday-so Happy Birthday Aron.
Nagy,A(l) playing Yip,M(r)

Here is my round 5 game.

Position 1
Both players missed 12..f4 with the idea of 13.ef or 13.gf then 13…g4! and Nh3 is out of squares. Otherwise the idea is 13…f3 forking Qe2/Bg2.

12.Qe2


Frech Károly 2013-06 Rd4

Group A Standings
Koczo shares the lead with Bodrogi,M with 3/4. Koczo beat me in the last game to finish from a bad position. I finally faded in the long RB-RB ending.

Position 1
My early middlegame position was quite promising after 20…Rd8 but I did not play 21.e4!

20…Rd8
 
Position 2
I pushed hard with 35.f6 and thought I had a crushing position but it was not as good as I thought.

Position 3
I won a pawn but then retreated with 38.Rf3= instead of 38.Rf6 with an advantage. I kept pressing for the win but tried a bit too hard and lost.

Here is my rd4 game with Koczo.

Frech Károly 2013-06 Rd2

Results A
I won a pawn but could not find the winning idea and finally drew my game with Kormos,A.

Here are some pictures by Zoldy,Robert(Thanks!)

 Yip(Left) playing Kormos,A(right) from rd2

The playing hall rd1


In Yip-Kormos,

Position 1(30..e4)
I won a pawn in the middlegame with some sharp play and reached a clearly better ending after 30…e4. Play continued with 31.Rd2!? but my technique could not bring home the point.

30…e4


Position 2(57..Ne8+)
I have a choice of king moves after 57…Ne8+ but did not find 58.Ke7 or 58.Ke6 both winning with the Nxg6+ idea. I played 58.Ke5? and conceded a draw.

57…Ne8+

Koczo had a good position from the opening but had to fight for a draw in a R-R ending against Varga,Z eventually holding a theoretical drawn Philidor position.

Bodrogi,L opened with 1.b3 against Bodrogi,M but eventually was ground down in a RN-RB ending.

Juhasz,B faced the Tarrasch Defence from Zoldy and prevailed.

Nagy,Aron defended the 3.Bb5+ Bd7 Sicilian and won.

I got off to a good start, but Houdini assures me I played quite weakly. Bodrogi,L had a good position but tried too hard to force the play and eventually gave a piece up.
