Annotated Game

This was my game on board two against Evanston last friday. This was the first time that we had been able to play with our state team because not everyone had been able to make the previous ones. I was glad with our overall performance winning 52-16.

Rothschild,Ben - Demashek,Elliot [C06]Evanston Meet

1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 Nf6 4.e5 Nfd7 5.Bd3 c5 6.c3 Nc6 7.Ne2 cxd4 8.cxd4 f6 9.exf6 Nxf6 10.0-0 Bd6 11.Nf3 0-0 12.Bf4 Bxf4 13.Nxf4 Qd6 This is all theory. Qd6 is a less common move where Ne4 is mainline which can lead to complicated positions. 14.g3 My other option here would be Ne2, with the idea of bringing the night to g3 and playing Re1. The text move secures the night on a strong central square along with gaining control of some of the darksquares. 14...e5!? Possibly too early. This type of move can be risky because it isolates blacks d-pawn which can be weak. [ 14...Bd7 15.Re1 Rae8 16.Ne5 would be a little safer although more passive. ] 15.dxe5 Nxe5 16.Nxe5 Qxe5 17.Qb3 g5?

18.Rfe1! Winning at least a pawn. 18...Qd6 19.Nxd5 Nxd5 20.Bc4 Bh3 [ 20...Rd8 21.Bxd5+ Qxd5 22.Rad1+-; 20...Rf5 21.Rad1 Be6 22.Rxe6 Qxe6 23.Bxd5 Rxd5 24.Qxd5+-; 20...Be6 21.Rxe6+-] 21.Bxd5+ Kg7? 22.Qxb7+ Kh8 23.Re7 Qg6 24.Be4 Bf5 25.Bxf5 Qxf5 26.Rf1 h5 27.Qc7 Rf6 28.Qe5 Qg6 29.Rd1 Raf8 30.Rd6 Kg8 31.Rxf6 Rxf6 32.Qd5+ Rf7 33.Qxf7+ Qxf7 34.Rxf7 Kxf7 1-0

Currently, there are three teams in our conference that are 4-1. Maine South beat us, New Trier beat Maine South, and we beat New Trier. So the top two teams with the most points will make it to conference. Next week we are playing North Ridge Prep. Maine South is playing GBS and New Trier is playing Evanston.
