    {I was spoilt for choice in finding an exciting game to annotate from round 2 and I hope you enjoy my analyses. The Dive-Ker game was of the highest quality with few mistakes from either player. Russell played his usual 1c4 to which Anthony decided he would play on his own turf, albeit a tempi down with a reverse 2c3 Sicilian. I wasn't sure if Anthony won the exchange or Russell sacrificed it but as soon as it looked like Russell was on an even footing he erred slightly allowing Anthony to deliver a devastating back rank attack. Bill Forster showed a return to top form with a
    nice combination to demolish his opponent. John Sullivan almost pulled of a
    brilliant Kingside assault against Lawrence 'The Rocket' Farrington but John’s pieces
    seemed to disintegrate in the wrong places. But I could only choose one game of the week and it goes to Mike Turner Vs Mike Nyberg. Only Mr. Nyberg could turn a solid strategic opening into such a chaotic mess! Both Mike’s had multiply chances to secure the advantage but Mr. Nyberg, who is often referred to as the 'borg, calmly danced his King toward to the center of the board whilst Mike Turner's Queen was
    unable to invent anyway through a flimsy yet uncanny defence.
    } 1. d4 e6 {Black invites the French defence} 2. c4 f5 {White has declined the
    French and now the 'borg reveals his hand, he wants to be me! He is morphing
    into me! He has stolen MY Dutch and French defence. By choosing 1...e6
    Black avoids the Staunton (1.d4 f5 2.e4) and a few other dead beat
    gambits -such as 2.g4. These gambits are not particularly sound but are played
    infrequently enough to be annoying and can catch an unprepared opponent off
    guard.} 3. Nc3 {3.g3 and 3.Nf3 are a lot more popular and I always meet Nc3
    instantly with 3...Bb4 accompanied by an unwarranted sigh of relief. Often
    times this confuses White who is left wondering if somehow they have already made a mistake. 3Nc3 is certainly no mistake but I feel that it leaves Black with an
    easy game plan.} Nf6 4. g3 {In most variations of the Dutch White often
    fiancetto's the King's Bishop on g2. With no pawn currently on d5 the Bishop
    has a longer range than if it were on d3, and on d3 it's path would be restricted
    by the f5 pawn. More importantly this move pretty much rules out Black's
    ability to fiancetto the light-squared bishop to b7. Black's light-squared
    bishop is often ridiculed in the Dutch and French defences and already here it
    biting granite with pawns on d7, e6 and f5.} c6 {The 'Borg is looking to play
    an old fashioned opening with a modern touch, maybe he doesn’t want to be me after all. By delaying the Stonewall Black can meet Nh3 with d6 and e5. The knight on h3 doesn't impede the bishop or f pawn, which is useful to evict black's knight once it goes to e4.} 5. Bg2 d5 {The "Stonewall' has been erected with or without the Nh3 possibility. The solid Stonewall structure was a favourite of Mikhail Botvinnik, the 6th World Chess Champion from 1948–1963 with a few brief losses in between. He was a strategic innovator and brilliant chess trainer, passing on the Russian chess secrets to none other than Karpov, Kasparov and Kramnik. In modern times Kasparov has gone on to say that Black should expect to be slightly worse. White can hope to swap all pieces off except a good knight Vs the bad light-squared bishop.} 6. b3 {I wonder if white can just get on with it by first playing Nh3 or Nf3 but then the c4 pawn maybe captured.} Ne4 {Here is another reason why I do not like White's knight on c3. The position is perfectly playable and in other lines where White's pawn is on b2 he can reply with Qc2 and Bd2.} 7. Nxe4 fxe4 8. Qd2 {White prevents Bb4+ but a3 would have also worked and Bb4+ is nothing to worry about.} ({A typical white plan may now look something like} 8. Nh3 Bb4+ 9. Bd2 Be7 10. O-O O-O 11. Bc3 Nd7 12. f3 {+/=}) (8. Nh3 Bd6 9. O-O O-O 10. Bb2 Nd7 11. f3 {+/=}) 8... Na6 {Developing a piece and threatening to win the Queen with Bb4. The knight can always come back to c7, so now white should play a3 or Bb2.} 9. c5 {? White relinquishes the central tension and provides
    Black with weak pawns to target by playing e5 and b6} Qf6 ({Better is} 9... e5

    play e5 but still has a slight advantage.} 11. b4 Be7 12. Nh3 Bd7 (12... O-O
    13. O-O {=/+}) 13. a3 {= The position is equal but about to become very
    dynamic.} Rb8 {Black lines up the Bishop on b2. A few different line here show
    how much the game is on a knife/^s edge.} (13... O-O 14. O-O bxc5 15. bxc5 Rab8

    {[The interesting part of this encounter between Ross and Chris was the
    endgame, in which Ross attempted to exchange queens under favour circumstances,
    only to later avoid the same swap to maintain winning chances. Finally, Chris
    played a couple of weak moves that gave Ross the chance to play 43.Qe5! with a
    technically won game. Alas, Ross missed this and the game soon ended in a draw.
    A king and knight ending that could have enventuated, should Chris have been
    accommodating enough to swap queens at the wrong time, is quite instructive]}

    As section C is very low rated and going over those games would not be worthwhile, I have not put those games up. Someone else can if they want to though.

    If C section are games below 1700, many of them still might be interesting enough to go over. I especially like the annotated games above.
    Make Way for Noddy.
