Fells Point Chess Club

I went to another G/30 tournament at Fells Point Chess Club yesterday, and did not get 0 points again! I played 4 games, and I feel I played ok. I got 1.5 points, but did play 2 masters, so I guess I should be happy. Here are the games:

NN 2204 - Askine 1609
Askine 1609 - NN 1718
NN 1460 - Askine 1609
NN 2206 - Askine 1609

I do feel like I am already playing better than I was earlier in the week. Maybe that is good, or maybe I am crazy. Either way, until next time.

the one thing your game needs work on right now is strategy. your opening theory and understanding of the marshall got you a good, solid position against that first master, especially after he played f4. f4 is a weak, weak move that weakens his kingside, and loosens and restricts the scope of his bishop. the problem with g5 is that it gave him a chance to correct those mistakes--it gave him time and the opportunity to play fxg5 and free his bishop up. insted of g5 you definitely should have doubgled on the e file and then tried to exploit the light squares and other weak spots around his kingside. moves like bf3, sac ideas like bxf4 are possible in the future.

i would recommend you try to do your first run through of analysis by yourself and only then double check tactics with fritz. relying on the computer for positional ideas is dangerous--even if it does recommend a good move, you may not completely understand it yourself unless you really work on breaking down the position on your own.

anyways, you got a nice position against a 2200 and that's pretty cool. i think you need to work on your strategy a little and you will be able to convert positions like you had in that game. i recommend the amateur's mind by jeremy silman (i can lend it to you).

"Here I had the opportunity to win the e5 pawn, but I made the cardinal sin of chess. I didn't really see anything wrong with it, but I assumed that my opponent did."

Most strong players would probably let you have that pawn withought thinking in this position. You are not better, afterwards.

Perhaps, but I still think it would have made the game more interesting if I had taken it. Perhaps I am still worse, but I have a pawn to show for it.

Since I've been AWOL for a while and have in-laws in town this week, I thought I'd try to be useful here since I can't be over the board... My comments are so far restricted to the second game with Kyle as White.

I'm far from an expert on the Panov attack, having always played the Advance or the Nc3xe4 variations.

7 Qb3? is really never a consideration unless b7 is undefended; there are lines in the Slav and QGA where this is very effective because of the double attack on d5 and b7. With the Bc8 undeveloped, it doesn't really do much; that piece solidly defends e6 and b7.

That said, you might even be able to sac the pawn with 8 Bxc4 Nxd4 9 Nxd4 Qxd4 and 10 Be3 or 0-0 planning Nb5.

12 Bc2 (planning Qb3/Bg5 or some such nonsense) might make sense.

I really don't understand why an endgame here is better for white - the two bishops aren't really active, and pushing the central pawns is going to give black a 2v1 majority on the queenside.

Hi Graham. I don't really think the ending is much better for me at all either. That is why I was more than happy to trade down into the Bishops of Opposite Colors ending. I think if I had played f4 though when the comp thinks I should have I may have been a little better, but not really enough to win. I think draw was the correct outcome.

Oh yeah, and I meant 12 Bc2 planning Qd3/Bg5, not Qb3. I guess maybe f4 gives you something - I was looking at Nxd7, since BB vs. NN might be fun.

(Second Game) You are clearly better after 20. f4 even though it will be hard to win. If you think about it, there's no easy way for him to attack ur center pawns. If he plays something like Bd7, then u can play Nxc6 and then he would have weak queenside pawns.

Due to ur center (hanging pawns), u don't want to trade pieces unless it weakens his pawn position. The reason is that the more trades u make, the more vulnerable those pawns become.

The main advantage of the hanging pawns in your endgame is that it keeps his knights out of the center. The general technique in positions like that (with the two bishops and the hanging pawns) is to keep the tension in the center, move all of ur pieces to the best squares (Rb1, Kf2 then Ke3), and then play stuff like g4, h4, and g5 to drive his pieces back without opening up squares for his knights. I.e. if he does nothing, squeeze him to death. If he does something, then respond appropriately and crush him.
