Kobanya Open 2012-12 Rd3

Here is my rd3 game.

There was plenty of exitement in the game. I missed easy moves and hard moves and in the end I just could not win the game.

Kobanya Open 2012-12 Rd6

Kiss,Peter won with 5.5/6 after grinding down the top seed in a long endinging(Exchange Spanish I think). Polyik, Peter  and Pasztor, Flora also did very well. Peter was up 3 clear pawns in a completely winning position before conceding a draw in a rook ending.

Here are the final Rd6 standings.

I won my last two games to finish with 4.5/6 but I could not recover from my rd1 loss and my rd2 pairing was with an unrated players that was the end of my tournament effectively.

Here is my Rd6 game.
Warning!!-Horrible blunders(I gave away a rook then my opponent drops his queen back to me).

Yip,M (2075) – Fabian,C (1867)
Semi-Slav[D46]
Kobanya Open (6), 16.12.2012

Position 1
Black’s position looks suspicious. Qh6 is out of play, the dark squares are soft and overall black is passive. What should white do?

  • Build slowly?
  • Exploit Qh6
  • Press the queenside?
  • Something else?

White to Play

22…Ng7
Position 2
Black has just attacked the knight. What should white do?
White to Play
24…f6

Position 3
The position has turned sharp as black has just made the central break 29…e5. What should white do?

Kobanya Open 2012-12 Rd4

I started the tournament in a hole with a first round loss and scored only 2.5/3 today. Kiss, Peter is having a good tournament. I think he has 3.5/4 now. Several juniors are having good tournaments. I’ll post the full standings when the become available.

64 players are taking part with the usual enthusiasm. This tournament I’m not having much sucess against the usual wall of juniors that usually participate.

Here is my round 4 game, which was my best effort of the day.

Yip,M (2075) – Csermely,Z (1642)
Nimzo-Indian 4.e3 d5[E52]

Kobanya Open (4), 15.12.2012

Position 1
Black has prodded the nice pawn front with 28..b5. What do you suggest for white?

White to Play

28…b5

Position 2
The attack is winding down. The kingside has been openned up with a pawn sacrifice but black suffers from playing without his queenside pieces.
What do you propose for white?(more than one answer is possible).

Kobanya Open 2012 Rd1

Here is my first round game which made my opponent very happy.

The moral of the game is players win games not ratings!

Juhasz,K (1584) – Yip,M (2075)
Sicilian Kan[B42]
Kobanya Open (1), 14.12.2012

Critical Position 1
Black has just reinforced the kingside with 13..Be7. What is the plan for white now?

White to Play

13..Be7

Critical Position 2
Black thinks that after the queen moves there will be an attack on the g-file and compensation for the pawn.
