(11) Ryba,Nicholas − Blake,Brian [B78]

QCC 2007 Futurity (3), 20.07.2007
A Sicilian Dragon slug−fest. The White King first castles queenside and then castles−by−hand on the kingside. 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 0-0 8.Bc4 Nc6 9.Qd2 Bd7 10.0-0-0 Na5!? Usual is 10…Qa5 or 10…Rc8. 11.Bb3 Nxb3+ 12.axb3 Qa5 13.Na4!? White usually needs the Queen for the upcoming kingside attack on Black’s fortress. 13…Qa6!? 14.Qd3!? b5!? 15.Nc3 Rfc8 16.Kd2 Qb7 17.Ndxb5 a6 18.Na3 d5 19.Ke1 dxe4 20.Nxe4 Bf5 21.Nxf6+ Bxf6 22.Qe2 Bxb2 23.Nc4 Bg7 24.Kf2 Rc7 25.g4 Be6 26.Nb6 Re8 27.Na4 Rec8 28.Rd2 29.Nb6 Re8 30.Rhd1 Rc6 31.Na4 Qc7 32.Kg1 Rc8 33.c4 Kh7 34.Bd4 Qb8 35.Qe3 Bxd4 36.Rxd4 R6c7 37.R1d3 Rb7 38.Re4 h5?! [38…Qa7 and it looks pretty even. 38…h5 invites a kingside attack by White.] 39.gxh5 Bf5 40.hxg6+ Bxg6 41.Rh4+ Kg8 42.Qd4 e5 43.Qg4 Kg7 44.Qg5 Rg8 [144…f6 45.Qh6+ Kf7 46.Rd5] 45.Rg4 Rh8 46.h4 Rh6 47.h5 f6 48.Qf5 Kg8 49.Rxg6+ Rxg6+ 50.hxg6 Qf8 51.Rd7 Rxd7 52.Qxd7 Qh6 53.Qh7+ Qxh7 54.gxh7+ Kxh7 55.c5

1-0

(12) Arluck,William − Frumkin,Ed [A86]

QCC 2007 Futurity (3), 20.07.2007
White gets an early d5 bind in the Dutch and gradually smothers Black. 1.d4 g6 2.c4 f5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Bg7 5.g3 0-0 6.Bg2 h6 7.Bd2 Nc6 8.d5 Ne5 9.b3 c6 10.Nh3 Qe8 11.0-0 d6 12.f3 Kh7 13.Nf2 Bd7 14.f4 Nf7 15.e4 Nxe4 16.Nfxe4 fxe4 17.Bxe4 Bf5 18.Bxf5 gxf5 19.Qc2 Nh8 20.Rae1 Ng6 21.Re6 Bxc3 22.Bxc3 cxd5 23.cxd5 Qb5 24.Qd2 Rf7 25.Rfe1 Rg8 26.Kh1 Rc8 27.h4 h5 [Black misses a chance. 27…Rxc3 28.Qxc3 Qxd5+ 29.Kh2 Ne5 and White is better but not as much as after the text move.] 28.Bb2 Rc5 29.Qd1 Kh6 30.Qd4 Kh7 31.Rxg6 Kxg6 32.Re6+

and it’s mate in 4. 1-0

1.c4 g6 2.Nc3 Bg7 3.g3 e5 4.Bg2 Nc6 5.a3 a5 6.Rb1 Nf6 7.b4 axb4 8.axb4 0-0 9.e3 Ne7 10.Nf3 d5 11.Nxe5 Bf5 12.Rb3 Be6 13.d3 Ne8 14.d4 dxc4 15.Ra3 c6 16.b5 Nd5 17.Nxd5 cxd5 18.0-0 Nd6 19.Rxa8 Qxa8 20.b6 Qa6 21.Bd2 Qxb6 22.Qa4 Qc7 23.Bb4 b5? 24.Qa6 Rd8 25.Ba5 1⁄2-1⁄2

(14) Drobbin,Mitchell − Lawson,Brian [E91]

QCC 2007 Futurity (3), 20.07.2007
Black gets a better 2−bishop endgame and presses for win but can’t find a way in. 1.d4 g6 2.c4 Bg7 3.e4 c5 4.d5 d6 5.Nc3 Nf6 6.h3 0-0 7.Nf3 e6 8.Be2 [8.Bd3 is more usual.] 8…Re8 9.0-0 exd5 10.exd5 Ne4 11.Nxe4 Rxe4 12.Bd3 Re8 13.Rb1 Nd7 14.Bd2 Ne5 15.Nxe5 Bxe5 16.f4? Bd4+ 17.Kh1 Qh4 18.Qf3 f5

Black didn’t want to allow 19.f5.

19.b3 Bd7 20.Rbe1 a6 21.Kh2 b5 22.g3 Qf6 23.Rxe8+ Rxe8 24.Re1 Rb8 25.Qe2 Kf7 26.Rb1 b4 27.h4 a5 28.h5 a4 29.Bc2 axb3 30.Bxb3 Ra8 31.Re1 Re8 [31…Ba4 32.Bxa4 Rxa4 33.Qe8+] 32.Qd1 Rxe1 33.Qxe1 gxh5 34.Kh3 Qg6 35.Bd1 Bf6 36.Qf2 Kg7 37.Bc1 Bd4 38.Qe1 [38.Bb2] 38…Qe8 39.Qxe8 Bxe8 40.Bc2 Kf6 41.Bd2 Bg6 42.Bd1 Ke7 43.Ba4 Kd8 44.Kg2 Bf6 45.Be1 h4 46.gxh4 Bh5 47.Kf1 Kc7 48.Bc2 Bg4 49.Bf2 Kb6 50.Be1 h6 51.Bf2 Ka5 52.Be1 Bc3?! Black is pushing a little too hard. 53.Bb3 [53.Bxc3 bxc3 54.a3 Bf3 55.Ke1 (55.Bxf5 Ka4) 55…Be4 56.Bb3 Bf3 and neither side can make progress.]

53…Bh5 54.Bf2 Bf3 55.Be3 Bf6 56.Bf2

1⁄2-1⁄2
