Tournament 31013102 online arena (7), 25.06.2015

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 g6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4

4.Qxd4 is another good continuation for White.

4…Bg7 5.Nc3 Nc6 Black is playing the Accelerated Dragon Variation of Sicilian Defence.

6.Nxc6 bxc6 7.Bc4 Nf6 8.0–0

8.e5 would be even more consequent.


8…Nd5?? 9.Nxd5 cxd5 10.Qxd5


After this double attack (on a8 and f7) Black could have lost the rook.

8…0–0 9.Bg5 h6 10.Bxf6 Bxf6 11.Bb3 Ba6 12.Re1 Qa5 


13.Qg4 White chose an immediate attack instead of taking on d7.

13…d6 14.Qxg6+ Bg7 15.Re3 d5 16.Qh5 e6 17.Rg3 Kh7 18.exd5 cxd5 


19.Ne4! Bringing another piece into the attack.

19…Qc7 20.Ng5+ Kg8 21.Nf3 Kh7 22.Re1 Bc4 23.Bxc4 Qxc4 24.c3



could have been a nice end of the game.

24…Rab8 25.Nd2 Qc7 26.Nb3 a5 27.Re2 a4 28.Nd2 Rxb2 29.h3 Rxa2 30.Qg4 


Black lost on time despite the material advantage.

Tournament 31013102 online arena (7), 25.06.2015

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 


White player chose the sharp Two-Knights Variation.

4…d5 5.exd5 Nxd5 6.Nxf7! 


A very interesting sacrifice. One of the top Grand Masters with very aggressive style, Alexei Shirov, used to play it as well.

6…Kxf7 7.Qf3+ Ke6 White sacrificed a piece just for a pawn but  his long-term initiative is a good compensation. Besides, the pin along the a2–g8 diagonal is quite unpleasant.

8.Nc3 Nce7 9.0–0 c6 10.Re1 Kd6 11.d4 Nxc3


12.dxe5+! Important intermediate move to open more files against the enemy’s king.

12.Rxe5 was an even stronger move, but a very hard one to be seen by a human being. 12…Ncd5 13.Bf4

12…Kc7 13.bxc3 Ng6 14.Bf4 Nxf4 15.Qxf4 b6 16.Rad1 Qe7 17.Rd6! Qe8 18.Rd3 Be6 19.Red1 Bxc4 20.Qxc4 Be7 21.e6 Rd8 


22.Rd7+! White’s attack prevailed.

22…Rxd7 23.Rxd7+ 


23…Qxd7 Black was forced to sacrifice the queen, otherwise he could get checkmated.

23…Kb8 24.Qf4+ Ka8 25.Qc7 Qb8 26.Qxc6+ Qb7 27.Qxb7#

24.exd7 Kxd7 25.Qa6 Rd8 26.g3 Bf6 27.Qxa7+ Ke6 28.Qxb6 Rd1+ 29.Kg2 Kd6 30.Qb4+ Kc7 31.a4 Rd2 32.Qa5+ Kd7 33.Qa7+ Kd6 34.Qb8+ Kd7 35.Qb3 Rd5 36.Qb7+ Kd6 37.Qb8+ Kc5 38.a5 Rd2 39.Qb4+ Kd5 40.c4+ Ke6 41.Qxd2 c5 42.Qd5+ Ke7 43.a6 Bd4 44.a7 Kf6 45.a8Q 



Two queens on the board!

45…Kg6 46.Qac6+ Bf6 47.Qe4+ Kh6 48.Qxc5 g6 49.Qf4+ Kg7 50.Qcc7+ Kg8 51.Qxf6 h5 52.Qfg7#
