After a long break, lastly I have time to write an analysis. I will share some analysis of the previous National Junior Girls Section ( National Junior Master 2012). The winner is NWM Tan Li Ting. Here's a game she won against her rival from Selangor State's Player, Anis Fariha Salleh.

DATCC, Kompleks Wilayah Kuala Lumpur, 18.12.2012, Round 2 table 3

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.d3 Nf6 5.Nc3 d6 6.0–0 Bg4 7.Be3 Bb6 8.Nd5 Nxd5 9.Bxd5 0–0 10.Re1 Rb8 11.Bxb6 axb6 12.c3 Ne7 13.Bc4 Ng6 14.d4 Qf6 15.Re3 Rbd8 16.Qd2 Qe7 17.Rae1 c6 18.Bb3 b5 19.Qc2 Kh8

Position after 19... Kh8

Both players played well in the opening phase. Now in this equal position, both player need to play a correct strategy and avoid tactical mistakes.

1. Weak square on f4 square ( black's knight will conquer it)
2. Symmetrical pawn structure ( no tactical fear here)
3. Knight f3 being pinned by black's bishop (Bg4)

1. Of course aiming the 2nd piece to land in enemy camp by Nf4 ( attacking g2 pawn)
2. Exchange  bishop against knight (Bxf3) and then attack g2 square by knight and then bring the queen to attack g2 pawn ( actually happened in this game )

Base on the position, white candidate moves must be 20.h3 or 20.Nd2

 Analysis move

(1) 20.h3 Be6 21.Bxe6 Qxe6 22.Qb3 Qxb3 23.axb3 Equall position with symmetrical pawn structure.

(2) 20.Nd2 Nf4 21.h3 Be6 22.Nf3 Bxb3 23.Qxb3 Qf6 24.Kh2 Equal position too

20.Qc1 Nf4 21.Bc2? Qf6
Position after black's move: 21... Qf6

Here white missed black's planning. A simple planning. Black's plan is to attack the g2 pawn by her queen. 22... Bxf3, 23... Qg5 and Ne2+ (check). How to defense?

Simple move, 22.Kh1! and black's attack has no more sting. Instead, white choose a wrong move to defense her e2 square.


Position after 22.Bd1

White must defense carefully here. Three of black's pieces are aiming at his king shelter. Both player missed the tactical move here.

 22... Bxf3? Not the best but she black still better than white. 

Better was 22... Bh3! 23.gxh3?? Qg6+ 24.Kh1 Qg2 checkmate, or
22... Bh3! 23.Nd2 Bxg2 winning a pawn

23.Rxf3 Qg5 24.Rxf4 Qxf4 25.Qc2 exd4 26.cxd4 f5 27.e5?

Position after 27.e5

A mistake which a cost a pawn. White has less than 5 minutes in this position. The game didn't need further analysis. Black converts her advantage easily.

27... Qxd4 28.e6 Rde8 29.h3 Qc4 30.Qxc4 bxc4 31.g4 g6 32.Re3 Re7 33.gxf5 Rxf5 34.Bg4 Rf6 35.h4 Rf4 36.Bh3 Rxh4 37.b3 cxb3 38.Rxb3 Ra4 39.a3 Kg7 40.Rf3 d5 41.Kf1 Re4 42.Re3 Rxe3 43.fxe3 Kf6 44.Ke2 Rxe6 45.Bxe6 Kxe6 46.a4 h5
Position after 46... h5
White resigns. 0–1
