2006 Midwest Class/US Open Games/Analysis

By Ilan Meerovich..

Meerovich,Ilan (2000) - Mc Nally ,Dan (1940) [A40]
2006 Midwest Class (5), 15.10.2006

1.d4 e6 2.c4 b6 3.Nf3 Bb7 The English Defence 4.g3 Bxf3 5.exf3

5...c6 6.Bg2 I should have played Bd3, Since the Bishop on g2 had no target on the closed diaganol and movedback to f1 later in the game.

[6.Nc3 d5 7.cxd5 exd5 8.Bd3 Be7 9.0-0 Bf6 10.Bc2 a6 11.Qd3 Ne7 12.Re1 Nd7 13.Bf4 Nf8 14.Be5 Bxe5 15.Rxe5 Ne6 16.Rae1 Ra7 17.f4 g6 18.Qd2 Ng7 19.f5 f6 20.R5e3 gxf5 21.Ne2 Qd6 22.Nf4 Kf7 23.h4

Ng6 24.Ne6 Nxe6 25.Rxe6 Qxe6 26.Rxe6 Kxe6 27.Qe3+ Kf7 28.Bxf5 Re7 29.Qh6 Nf8 1-0 andersson-Ljubovejic Amber-Blind Rapid tournament ] 6...d5 7.cxd5 cxd5 8.0-0 Be7 Black's weaknesses are the C file, and c6 square in particular 9.Nc3 Nf6 10.Bf4 a6 [10...Nbd7 11.Nb5 0-0 12.Rc1 White has control of the C file. 12...Rc8 13.Bc7 Qe8 14.Nd6] 11.Qb3 Nbd7 12.Rfc1 Rc8 13.Bf1 Ra8 14.Na4 Ra7 15.Rc2 0-0 16.Rac1 b5 [16...Re8 17.Rc7 Rxc7 18.Rxc7 b5; 16...Rb7 17.Rc8 Qxc8 18.Rxc8 Rxc8 19.Bxa6] 17.Nc3 [17.Nc5 Bxc5 18.dxc5 e5 I did not really like this position for me, Black has a passed pawn too, and the position is unclear.] 17...Nb6 18.a4 b4 19.Na2 Na8

Undevelopment [19...a5 20.Bc7; 19...Nc4 20.Bxc4 dxc4 21.Rxc4 Nd5 22.Be5 f6 23.Bf4 a5 24.Rc6 Was probably better then what happend in the game] 20.Rc6 Nd7 21.Bxa6 g5 22.Bd2 Qa5 [22...Nb8 This was his plan, I think, but It did not work because I have Rc8 Here.] 23.Bb5 Nc7 24.Nxb4

24...Nxb5 25.Nxd5 Qxa4 26.Nxe7+ Kg7 27.Qe3 h6 28.h4 He had about 5 minutes left in this position. 28...Nb8 29.R6c4 Qa6 30.hxg5 Rxe7 31.Bb4 Nd6 32.Qe5+ f6 33.Qxd6 Qxd6 34.Bxd6 Diagram Conclusion:Black should have played 7.. exd5 and try to attack the isolated d4 pawn. After 7..cxd5 white should be positionally better. 1-0

Kurczynski,Ray (1586) - Thariath,Michael (1210) [B76]

US Open (3), 09.08.2006

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 0-0 8.Qd2 Nc6

9.0-0-0 d5

Thematic move in alot of sicilians. Usually if black is allowed this move He is atleast equal 10.Nxc6 bxc6 11.exd5 cxd5 12.Nxd5 Nxd5 13.Qxd5 Qc7

14.Qc5 [14.Qxa8 Bf5 15.Qxf8+ Kxf8 Is complicated and black needs to know theory.] 14...Qb7 15.Bd4 Bf5 16.Qb5 Qc7 17.Qc5 Qb8 18.Ba6 Qf4+ 19.Kb1 [19.Be3 White seems fine after Be3, 19...Qa4 20.Qc4 Bxc2 21.Qxa4 Bxa4 22.b3 Bc6] 19...Rfc8!

20.Bxc8 Rxc8 21.Qb4 [21.Qxc8+ Bxc8 22.Bxa7 Qc7 23.b4 Qxa7 24.Rd8+ Bf8 25.Rxc8 Qb7 26.Rc4 e6 27.c3 Qa6 28.Rd4 Qe2] 21...Bxc2+ 22.Ka1 Bxd1 0-1
