The clash between Wonder Kids and Latest National Junior Master
The 1st day I manage to go to the venue, watch the games and meet friends there. But on the next day I have to go back to KL due to work commitment. When I arrived at my home 3.45pm, the 4th round just started and I managed to follow the game online. Thanks to www.kedaicatur.com especially En Muhammad Arshad who make it possible , a very hardworking chess player/organiser/trainer in State of Terengganu.
Fong Yit San (2024) vs Yeoh Li Tian (2288), Round 4, 29.5.2013, National Closed 2013
ECO "B13" Karo-kan Panov Variation
1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 cxd5 4. c4 Nf6 5. Nc3 Nc6 6. Nf3 Bg4 7. cxd5 Nxd5 8.Be2 e6 9. O-O Be7 10. h3 Bh5 11. a3 O-O 12. Re1 Rc8 13. Be3 Bf6 14. Rc1 Bg6 15.Bd3 Nxc3 16. bxc3 Qa5 17. Bxg6 hxg6 18. Qb3 Qa6 19. Nd2 Rfd8 20. Ne4 b6 21. Bg5 Bxg5 22. Nxg5 Na5 23. Qd1 Rd5
At this point I feel that black is better. I spoke to NWM Khairun Nisa that Yeoh Li Tian has a better game and white's c pawn is a target. But after I a couple of moves I found that white has a better chances. Black: Knight at a5 at the rim and his queen is out of play. White: Queen has more attacking chances.
24. Qg4 Nb3? (Ignoring black tactics on f7)
There are some alternatives:
1. ( 24.....Qb7? 25.Qh4 Qd7 26.Qh7+ Kf8 27.h4) during the game I calculate it's a good move but then found out that black will lose a pawn)
2. ( 24....Rf5? 25.Qh4 Qc4 26.Qh7+ Kf8 27.h4) the same fate with the 1st calculation
3. ( 24....Qc4 is the last choice, if 25.Nxf7? Kxf7 26.Qxe6) the result will be different.
25. Nxf7 Rc6
I don't like the black's Rc6 moves. I prefer 25....Qb7, attacking the knight and at the same time the white's rook at c1 also under attack.
26. Qxg6 (I really surprise with the move... there are two better alternatives)
1. (26. Rxe6 Qc8 27. Rce1 Rxe6 28. Rxe6) I prefer this move than the 2nd alternative moves.
2. (26. Rb1 Qc8 27. Qxg6 Nd2 28. Rbd1)
26... Nxc1 27. Nh6+ Kh8 28. Nf7+ Kg8 29. Nh6+ Kh8 30. Qe8+ Kh7 31. Qxc6 Ne2+ 32. Kh2 Nf4 33. Ng4 Qd3
