Sicilian Kan[B42]
60th ch-HUN w 2012 Kisvarda HUN (5), 08.12.2012
In a tense but balanced game black achieved a nice position. Later, black tried too hard to force the issue and opened up the kingside. Now white is in control.

Critical Position
Black’s kingside is loose. How should white proceed?

2nd UNAM Open Section I 2012 Mexico City MEX (3.5), 22.11.2012
Black played the slightly unusual …Nge7 and broke quickly in the center with …d5 to clear out the center.

Critical Position 1
White has a slight lead in development. But what is next? This is a test of understanding and choosing the right plan.

White to Play

Critical Position 2
The ending is in full swing and it is black who is pressing with a slight advantage. The e5 pawn is under attack so how should black react?
-Guard the pawn with …f6
-Trade knights with …Nxd3
-There is a little hidden tactical shot
-Something else
