Live Blog from Week 3

Live from UT Dallas Chess Team Room...

9:52 Alec draws to secure the match. Sarah is winning. I am out. Good job Dallasites!

9:38 2-0! Ino and his crazy games.

9:33 Games cleared up a bit. Alec is clearly in control now as well as Ino. Sarah still has a bit of work to do to convert her advantage.

9:23 Slow making little progress except Sarah letting the game go on longer than it should.

9:09 Everything now looks great for us. Ino up 35 minutes with Perez having 1 minute to find perfect moves. Alec kinda playing too passive with his unstoppable passed pawn but it's still better. Sarah just up a piece for nothing.

9:03 Board 4 is toying with my opinion. It's just flip flopping from "better for white to lost for white to hang a bishop for no reason". I give up trying to predict it.

9:01 Nevermind...just got a glimpse of Sarah's position. Ino CANNOT lose anymore.

9:00 My early prediction is simple: if Ino doesn't lose, we should take this match.  If that happens, then it's a coin toss.

8:55 Ino's horsey is now on f3. Lots of pressure on e4 but just as much pressure from white with his knights.

Alec is trying to trade queens now that he has the passed a-pawn but his opponent is correctly clinging to his king side attack...or lack of it. Not entirely sure how black can break white's fortress in time.

8:48 Ino's games are never done getting more complicated. It's unbelievable. 

8:43 If Alec can somehow trade queens off the board and take on a6 and put bishop on d5...daydreaming again. Sorry.

8:37 Sarah's position is very complicated.  Still better but needs to find correct moves.

8:25 Jeffrey just finished his game. I looked away for a sec then couldn't find his game. I assumed he disconnected again but good news everybody! 1-0 Dallas.

I am not liking Ino's position but I never like Ino's positions.

Sarah seems to be on the right path to a victory while Getz has a Sveshnikov set't ask me.


  1. 8: fifty five Ino's horsey has become upon f3. Plenty of stress upon e4 and a lot stress through whitened together with his knights in combat.

    Alec is attempting in order to industry a queen since he's the actual handed a-pawn however their challenger is actually properly hugging in order to their full aspect assault... or even insufficient this. Not really completely certain exactly how dark may split white's castle over time Live Tv Online

  2. Hmm, that's true, Alena makes some brilliant points there. The a-pawn challenger hugging is crucial.
