taking the lead

Postby PaulWeaver » Sun Mar 06, 2011 10:44 pm

this victory at gameknot.com puts me in the lead in the 13th smashed crabs minitournament and clinches at tie for first place. With 1/2 point out of my two remaining games I will clinch 1st.

Paul Weaver (Francisbaron08)-byrce666 Ruy Lopez 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5 Nf6 4 0-0 a6?? (dropping a pawn) 5 Bxc6 bxc6 6 Nxe5 Qe7 7 Nf3 a5 8 Nc3 g6 9 d4 Qd8 10 Re1 Bb4 11 e5 Nd5 (I believe that 11 Bxc3+ is a better try) 12 Nxd5 cxd5 13 c3 Be7 14 Bf4 g5 (not wishing to be passive) 15 Be3 d6?? 16 exd6 cxd6 17 exd6 cxd6 17 Bxg5 (17 Nxg5 may be stronger. Its interesting that the gameknot computer doesn't query 17 Bxg5) Be6 18 Qd2 (the direct5 18 Bxe7 may be stronger. 18 ... Kxe7 would be forced else black would drop the piece.) Rg8 19 Bxe7 Qxe7 20 c4 Qf6 (saving his piece) 21 Re3 Kd7 22 cxd5 (I believe the computer likes 22 c5. that move didn't occur to me during the game) Bh3? (this took me by surprise 22 ... Bxd5 was expected) 23 Ne5+ Kd8 (another surprise) 24 Rxh3 (24 Nc6+ was not overlooked but the follow-up of Rc3 after Rxh3 was. I was planning on having to play a major piece ending or a rook ending a two or three pawns ahead) dxe5 25 dxe5 Qxe5 26 Qc2! (the point of this move was to keep the queen off of f5. This also poisons the "d" pawn. I had worked out some lines vs. 26 ... Rc8 One of them is 2 Qxh7 Qg5 3 Qh4! In this line vs. 27 ... Rg7 3 Qh5 Qxb2 4 Qh4+ leads to wins) Ra6 27 Rc1 Ra8 (against 27 ... Rag6 I had planned 28 Qc8+ Ke7 29 Qxg8!! Qg5 30 Re3+!) 28 d6! (black can not defend himself) Qf6 29 Qc7+ Ke8 30 Qc6+ Kf8 31 Qxa8+ 1-0
