15th HZ Open 2011 (2-3)

The double round claims victims

Previous winner Vyacheslav Ikonnikov messed up a good position in time trouble to lose to Daan In't Veld in Round 3. Yasser Seirawan and Erwin L'Ami only drew. Rough translation of the official press release below.

As is traditional, there were two rounds on the second day. For a number of club players is too much. They take one of these rounds as a bye. The top players who may be in the battle for the Trophy of course not afford to, although a few achieved the same by playing! GM Vyacheslav Ikonnikov, former winner, was the big loser in this round.

With White, he built a solid and a little later even great advantage. But he thought about it too long after which he was in severe time trouble and this helped his opponent Daan in 't Veld. He can now no longer afford to drop more points. In addition, there were some half surprises. GM Yasser Seirewan could only draw against the young Singaporean IM Daniel Fernandez Howard. The latter managed to create a counterplay the American could not escape.

Daniel Howard Fernandez

Position after 33.Rd8

Further analysis reveals that 33 ... Kc7 34. Rd3 Kc8! (instead of 33 ... Ka6, see diagram) retains a decisive advantage. A great boost for the youth team from Singapore, who travels every year to the event!

Also, GM Erwin L'Ami had to acquiesce to the division of a point with FM Dirk van Dooren. Although L'Ami after a middle game of tactical twists obtained a slightly better endgame, it was - partly because the tough resistance of Van Dooren - not sufficient for the full point.
