Round 3 : Nor Ilhamuddin - Yeoh Li Tian : 0-1

Nor Ilhamuddin - Yeoh Li Tian
National Closed, Round 3, 17.3.2011

Analysed by Centaur (Hairulov+Fritz)

1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 dxe4 4. f3

White play ala Blackmar Diemer Gambit. He sac a pawn for quick development. 4...exf3 5. Nxf3 Nf6 6. Bd3 Bg4 7. Be3 Theory recommend 7. O-O Bxf3 8. Qxf3 Qxd4+ 9. Be3 White sac two pawns for initiative and development. 7... e6 8. O-O Be7 9. Qe1 Bh5?! With hindsight, this move looks dubious because after 10. Qh4 Bxf3 Probably Li Tian realised that his original  plan to play 10... Bg6 is not possible because of 11. Bxg6 fxg6  black defense is seriously weaken. (11...hxg6?? 12. Qxh8+) Another normal option - 10...0-0 will be answered with an interesting combination 11. Bxh7+!? Kxh7 12. g4 and white will regain the piece with strong initiative. 11. Rxf3 Nd5 12. Qg3 Nxe3 13. Qxg7 Of course 13. Rxe3? will be a mistake because black solve his problem with 13...Qxd4 14. Kh1 g6 13...Rf8

14. Rxe3?! Fritz 'said' that white only chance is to play a wild continuation starting with 14. Bxh7!? Nd5 15. Rxf7 Rxf7 16. Bg6 Kd7 17. Bxf7 White is down a piece for two pawn and initiative. 14... Bf6 I found that  Terengganu chess player like Ilhamuddin,  Muhammad Arshad, Hashim Jusoh , Norazmi Mohd Nor is all  nice, soft spoken and humble person. Majority of the Terengganu player have a similiar style. They are usually a positional player. However Ilhamuddin is the only exception. He prefer wild combination and will not hesitant to do so when opportunity arise .  15. Rxe6+

I bet Ilham will not choose such a passive position such as 15. Qg3 Bxd4 16. Rae1 15... fxe6 16. Qxb7 Qxd4+ equal good is 16... Bxd4+ 17. Kh1 Nd7 17. Kh1 Be5 18. Bxh7 White position is already beyond save but he can offer more resistance with 18. g3 Qe3 19. Bf1 (19. Qxa8 Qf3+ 20. Kg1 Bd4#) 19... a6 20. Qxa8 Rf7 and white's queen will be trapped after black play Ra7 later.  White can't choose to be greedy because after 18. Qxa8?? he will be mate after 18...Qh4! 18... Rf6 18... Qf4! Threatening mate on h2 is stronger. For e.g.  19. Bg6+ Kd8 20. Rd1+ Bd6 21. g3 Qf3+ 22.Kg1  Nd7 23. Qxa8+ Ke7 24. Qb7 Bc5+ and mate follow shortly.  19. Be4 Qf2 20. Bxc6+ 20. Qxa8?? is not directly advisable because of the following mate in 2 after  20...Qf1+   21. Rxf1 Rxf1# 20... Nxc6 21. Qxc6+ 21... Kf7 22. Qb7+ 22. Qxa8 ?? again mate  in 2.  22...Qf1+ 23.Rxf1 Rxf1# 22... Kg6 23. Qe4+ Qf5 23... Rf5! makes it even easier for Black 24. Qc4 (24. Qxa8?? is again will be checkmate after 24... Qf1+ 25. Rxf1 Rxf1#) 24...Raf8 24. Qe2 Rh8 25. h3

25. Qe4 also lost after 25...Bxh2 26. g3 Bxg3+ 25... Rxh3+ ! Mate attack. 26. gxh3 Qxh3+ 27. Kg1 Bd4+ 0-1
