DATCC league

below is a game between Mas Hafizul(Goldis) and Nor Ilhamuddin(NMCC)

anecdote by Ilham

 Ilham - Mas [D00]
DATCC, 22.04.2009
1.d4 Nf6
2.Nc3 d5
Introducing Blackmar Counter Gambit

3...dxe4     4.f3 exf3  5.Nxf3 Bg4


Not the most feared move.

5...Bf5 followed by 6.c6 is perhaps more accurate

6.Bd3?! Theory recommend 6.h3 immediately putting a question mark to this bishop but i prefer 6.Bd3 since from my experience, black bishop is a liability to be here

6...e6  7.Be3 Bb4 7...Be7 perhaps is better since black bishop is doing nothing at b4
8.0–0 Nbd7 Nc6 is better
9.Qe1 Bh5 10.Qh4 Bxf3 11.Rxf3 Even though white is a pawn down, Fritz prefer white position due to active position of white pieces (+/= 0.35)






What to do now? I rejected Raf1 since it is obvious black is not going to castle king side. I played

12.a3 (Fritz = 0.21) with the idea of maintaining two bishops and opening the b file, just in case black castle queenside. Fritz suggested the complicate 12. Nb5 (+/- 0.75)
12.a3 Bxc3  13.bxc3 h6 14.Qg3 0–0–0 Wow! he really castle queenside!
15.a4 Attack!

15...Kb8 16.a5 Nd5  17.Bd2 f5 18.c4 Mas suggest 18.Qe1 before playing c4 with the idea of preventing black's Nb4

 18...Nb4  19.c5 Nxd3  20.Rxd3 Nf6 21.a6



My team mate Rusdi suggest immediate 21. Rb1 which is not bad as per below variations show [21.Rb1 Ne4 22.Qe1 e5 23.Rdb3 Rxd4 24.Rxb7+ Ka8 Kc8 25.c6 is force mate in 16 moves 25.Be3 Qxc5 slight advantage for white]

21...Ne4  22.Qe1 b6 23.Bf4 Ka8   24.cxb6 cxb6 25.Be5 Rc8
threatening 27.Rxe4 fxe4 28.Qe4 mate!



27.Rc1 Rc4




[28.Rxe4! fxe4 29.Qxe4+ Rd5 30.Rf1 Rc8 31.Qg6 Rd7 32.Qe4+ Rd5
Black, eventhough material up is almost paralysed to prevent white play on F file and h1a8 diagonal, the position is dead equal.]

28...Rdc8  29.c3 after this move the game is all black

29… Qd7 30.Ra3 Qb5 31.Rb1 Qc6 32.Rc1 Nxc3 33.Rca1 Ne4 34.h3 g5

35.Kh2 h5 36.Rd3 Qd5  37.Rda3 Rc2  38.Rd3 g4

White resigned a few moves later 0–1
