Chess Exhibition Game

Post by plummy » Sat May 07, 2016 1:59 am

April 16th I had the chance to play chess against FIDE Master Ruslan Ahundov at an exhibition where he played 18 people at the same time. Below is a link to our game:

I saw 23. Qxa8 and for some reason realized 25. Bxd6 failed yet missed 25. Bh6, Instead I needed to play 22... Qc6 (which was a candidate move) where the position is roughly equal. However, all is well considering 15. Qxe4 would have finished me early had he found the right line. I overestimated my chances on the e-file and pulled the trigger with 14... Nxe4. I assume he gave me a freebie when he decided to calmly castle.

Anyway, enjoy.

What about 15. Qxe4 Bxc3+ (and if 16.bxc3, then ... Qxc3+ forks the king and rook and forces the king towards the middle on the e-file)?

15. Qxe4 Bxc3+ 16. bxc3 Qxc3+ 17. Ke2 (The only square to check the king is 17. ... Qb2, and 18. Nd2 leaves deflates the Queen's ambitions.)

According to the Engine, Black has very little compensation for the piece.
