The Ides of March Mini-Swiss was held Sunday, March 17, in the Benes Room of the Hamilton Williams Campus Center on the campus of Ohio Wesleyan University. The three-round chess tournament attracted thirty-nine chess players who played in five sections based on rating.

In the top section Candidate Masters, Dana MacKenzie, a faculty member at Kenyon College, and Ted Alfred, Columbus, shared first place honors. Both players won two games and drew each other to split the $75 prize money.

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 d6 8.c3 0-0 9.d4 The first time I've gotten to try 9 d4, since most Black players head for the Marshall Gambit. Bg4 10.d5 Na5 11.Bc2 c5 did not worry me as much as 11 ... c6, trying to put pressure on White's center. 12.Nbd2 c4 13.Nf1 Nb7 14.h3 Bd7 also surprised me, but Black may have wanted to avoid trading a bishop for a knight after 14 ... Bh5 15 Ng3 (or g4) Bg6 16 Nh3. The sharp 15 g4 nearly backfired on me. I saw that 17 ... f6? Was no good because of 18 g6!, but I missed the fact that after 17 ... g6 White still cannot adequately defend the g and h pawns. The critical question is whether Black can grab a pawn with 20 ... Ng5. My opponent said he ruled it out because of 21 Nxg5 Bxg5 22 Bxg5 Qxg5 23 Rg1 Qh6, when he thought my Kingside pressure would be too strong. But I disagree! Black can easily defend his g pawn with Kh7, and he also has strong threats of his own along the f file. And White's Bishop is a complete bystander! My idea was 21 Rg1? Nxf6 22 Rxg6+ Kf7 23 Rg3, when the Knight cannot move from f3. But I think 23 ... Bg4! 24 Nxf3 Ke8 completely refutes this. White has no good defense to the threat 25 ... Bh4. But the correct order of moves is 21 Nxg5 Bxg5 22 Rg1! Now 22 ... Bxc1 23 Rxg3+ followed by Qxh4 is death, so Black has nothing better than 22 ... Bg4 23 Nxg4 Bxc1 24 Rxc1 hxg 25 Qxg4 Rf6 with advantage to White. A final wrinkle is 20 ... Bxg5, when White should avoid 21 Nxg5 Nxg5 22 Rg1 Bg4!! 23 Nxg4 Nh3! And instead play 21 Rg1 Bxc1 22 Rxg3+ Kf7 23 ... oops ... Here I think White must choose between 22 Rxg6+ Kf7 23 Qg1 (Nxe5+ dxe 24 Qxh5 Nf6!) Rg8 25 Rxg8 Qxg8 26 Rc1 with equality or 22 Rxc1 Qf6 23 Qd2 or Qe2 with some attacking chances or maybe 20 ... Bxg5 21 Nxg5 Nxg5 22 Rg1 Bg4! 23 Rxg4! Hxg 24 Qxg4 Nh7 (...Nf7 25 Bh6 wins back the exchange) 25 Bh6 Rf6 26 f4! It's hard to make a definitive judgement, but White's pawn sac was definitely sound enough for practical play. 15.g4!? h5 16.g5 Nh7 17.h4 g6 18.N1h2 f6 19.Kh1 fxg5 20.hxg5 Kg7 21.Rg1 Rf7 After the game Pace suggested 21 ... Rh8 with the plan ... h4, ... Nf8, ... Rh5, and ... Nh7. However, I'm extremely skeptical of such a complicated plan to win the g pawn when winning it by normal means was already too dangerous. Besides, if 21 ...Rh8 22 Be3 h4 23 Ng4 already poses problems for Black. 22.Be3 Qc7 An amazing position is reached - all of Black's pieces have moved up one rank, except for the QR! 23.Qd2 Raf8 24.Nh4 Qc8 25.f4? The second turning point of the game. I chickened out of 25 Nf5+ because of 25 ... gxf 26 g6 Rf6, when I didn't see anything for White after 27 gxh+ Kxh7. I totally missed the zwischenzug 27 Bh6+ which completely demolishes Black. My opponent instead had planned 25 ... Bxf5 26 exf Rxf5 27 Bxf5 Qxf5. While Black is out of immediate danger, White is clearly better. Actually, Black's best move may be the patient 25 ... Kh8! 26 f4 gxf 27 g6 Rg7 is dubious for White. 26 Nh6 Rg7 strands the Knight. So White probably has nothing better than 26 Nxe7 Rxe7 27 f4 but it's still a game. However, after 25 f4? The exchange sac 25 ... Rxf4! 26 Bxf4 Rxf4 is quite good for Black. In this position the pawn at g5 is a dead duck, so Black should come out with two pawns for the exchange. Probably he just didn't see the danger after 25 exf? exf4 26.Qd4+ Kg8 27.Bxf4 Rxf4? If 27 ... Rg7 28 e5! Be8 29 e6 with a tremendous position for White. 28 ... dxe 29 Bxe5 Bc5 is interesting, but after 30 Qe4 I can't believe Black will survive the combined onslaught of White's Queen, two Bishops, and Knight. Well, it's not so clear! 30 ... Nd6 is pretty good. And if 30 Qd2 Rf2! Hmmm! Maybe 30 Bxg7!? Bxd4 31 Bxd4. The pawn at g6 must fall, and White's Bishops control a tremendous amount of territory. 28.Nxg6 Kf7 29.Nxf4 Ke8 30.e5 Nxg5 31.e6 Nxe6 32.Bg6+ Kd8 33.Nxe6+ Bxe6 34.Qb6+ Qc7 35.Qxc7+ Kxc7 36.dxe6 Rh8 37.Raf1 Nd8 38.Bf7 d5 39.Rf5 Nxf7 40.exf7 1-0

1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bc4 Nf6 4 d4 exd4 5 e5 d5 6 Bb5 Ne4 7 0-0 Nxd4 followed by 8 Be3 is book. Certainly 7 0-0 didn't cause Black any problems. Bc5 8 Nxd4 Bd7 9 Bxc6 bxc6 10 c3 0-0 11 Qh5? was tempting, as it threatens 12 f3 but f6! completely refutes it. If 12 e6 Bd4 wins a pawn. If 12 f3 fxe 13 Qxe5? Rf5 wins a Queen! If 12 f3 fxe 13 fxe Rxf1+ 14 Kxf1 exd 15 exd Qf6+ is overwhelming. If 12 Bf4 fxe 13 Bxe5 Bd6 or Qe7. White is not in immediate danger, but he does have trouble completing his development. All in all, I think White's idea of giving up a pawn in order to free his pieces was best - instead of clinging to material he solves the main problem with his position.12 exf6 Qxf6 13 Be3 Rae8 14 Nd2 Nxd2 15 Bxd2 Bxd4 16 cxd4 Qxd4 17 Bc3 Qg4?! Was not aggressive enough. These days I'm too eager to trade Queens. The problem was that I didn't see any way to play for an attack. But just on general grounds I should have kept them on - with Bishops of opposite colors every trade helps White. A concrete variation is 17 ... Qc4 18 Rac1 (18 Qg5 d4) Rf5 19 Qd1 c5! (19 ... Qh4? 20 Qd4) 20 Bxg7?! (tempting, but loses time) Qh4 21 Bc3 Rh5 with a winning attack. Of course White need not have grabbed the poisoned g pawn, but in that case Black has succeeded in mobilizing his Queenside pawns and still threatens a strong Kingside attack. 18 Qxg4 Bxg4 19 f3 Bc8 20 Bd4 Re2 21 Rf2 Rfe8 22 Bxa7 Ba6 23 g3 Rxf2 24 Kxf2 [Bxf2] Re2+ 25 Kg1 Rxb2 26 a4 Rb4 27 Kf2 Rc4 28 Bb8 d4 29 Bxc7 Rc2+ 30 Ke1 Rxh2 I think this ending (last move of time control) should be drawn, but Alfred blundered with 31 Ra3? Necessary was 31 Rc1 and if 31 ... d3 32 Bf4 (not 32 Rxc6?? D7+ 33 Kd8 Be7+ 34 Kxd7 Bxf3+). If Black trades Rooks, White can draw by putting his pawns on dark squares and blockading Black's c and d pawns. Rb2 32 a5 c5 33 Kd1 c4 34 Be5 Rb5? Getting my pawns to c4 and d5 was a key step, but unfortunately I missed the next step 34 ... c3! If 25 Kc1 or 35 Ra4 Bd3! And the checkmate threat is devastating. 36 Ra1 is forced, and Black wins with 36 ... Rd2+ and 37 ... Re2. Don't overlook the possibility of mating threats, even in the ending! 35 f4 Rd5 36 Ra4 Kf7 37 Kc1 g5 38 Rb4 gxf4 39 gxf4 d3 40 Bc3 Rxa5 41 Rxc4 Bxc4 42 Bxa5 Kf6 43 Kd2 Kf5 44 Ke3 Kg4 45 Kd4 h5 46 Kxc4 h4 47 f5! draw

A scintillating finish! When White succeeds in consolidating the Queenside in the Benko, he can often blow Black away in the center. 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 c5 3 d5 b5 4 cxb5 a6 5 e3 g6 6 Nc3 Bg7 7 Nf3 0-0 8 a4 axb5 9 Bxb5 Ba6 a move I hadn't seen before. It has an interesting point: after 10 0-0 Black can try 10 ... Ne4!? I was relieved when Black didn't play this. But I believe White could keep an advantage after 11 Ra3! Nxc3 12 bxc Bxb5 13 a6 Rxa3 14 Bxa3 Qa5 15 Qb3! C4! 16 Qb4 Bxc3 17 Qxa5 Rxa5 18 Bxe7 Rc8 19 Nd4. The main point is that it will nearly take an act of Congress for Black to develop his Queen Knight. 10 0-0 d6 11 Ra3 Nbd7 12 Re1 Bxb5 13 Nxb5 Ng4 surprised me a bit, as I expected 13 ... Ne4. But 14 Nd2 looks like a perfectly good answer to that.14 e4 Nge5 15 Nxe5 Nxe5 16 f4 Nc4 17 Ra2 Nb6 18 Bd2 Qd7 19 b3 the big question is whether Black can break up White's Queenside with an eventual ... c4. Rfb8 20 Bc3 Bxc3? He missed his one chance to do so: 20 ... c4! 21 Bxg7 cxb! 22 Qxb3 (I thought during the game that 22 Qa1 would be a good move, but after 22 ... bxa 23 Bh6 f6 White has nothing) 22 ... Kxg7 23 Rb1 Nxa4! (In spite of White's attempts to prevent this, it works) 24 Rxa4 Rxb5 25 Rxa8 Rxb3 26 Rxb3= or 25 Qc3+ f6!= 21 Nxc3 White's Queenside is unassailable, as ... c4 is now met by b4. As it turned out, my pieces were in perfect position for an onslaught in the center. Ra5 22 e5! dxe5?! hastened the end, as it allowed the crushing 25 d6. The point of 25 ... Qe6 was to answer 26 dxe with 26 ... Rxd2, but the maneuver 26 Nb5 and 27 Nc7 chased the Queen away from its critical defensive post.23 fxe5 Rd8 24 Rd2 Ra7 25 d6 Qe6 This position would make a nice "What's the Best Move?" quiz, as this idea is logical but not easy to find. 26 Nb5! Rad7 27 Nc7! Qf5 I am told that Jack's jaw dropped when I played 28 dxe7! Rc8 29 e8Q+ Rxe8 30 Nxe8 1-0 Two noteworthy things about this game: 1) It was my last rated game as a resident of Ohio; 2) I won without ever moving my Queen!

SCHULIEN LECTURE AND SIMUL

Senior Master Chuck Schulien featured his game against Jeremy Ford from the 1983 Lima Open in his lecture to 40 eager students on Sunday, March 24th, in the Bayley Room of the L. A. Beeghly Library. We are pleased to share the game with our readers.

Following the lecture, Master Schulien demonstrated his chess prowess in a simultaneous display against 23 challengers. One of his students, Doug Mazeffa (1659), and local player Greg Saiter (1617?) were the only two players to garner draws. The event was co-sponsored by the Bishops Chess Club and the Ohio Chess Association.

MOTCF

The 33rd MOTCF was held at the Delaware Hotel on March 30-31, 1996. Tom Green, Bill Pace, Tom Utley, Karl Nehring, and David Miller called themselves the Stabbing Chess Pains. David Miller, the five-year-old brother of Rubin Miller, was drafted Sunday morning after it was learned Greg Saiter's job responsibilities required him to remain in Tennessee.

4 Hour Lives won the first match, but not before Tom Utley, the Class B player on board three, nicked Master Hans Multhopp for a half-point. Pace, Utley, and Nehring all won games in round two to defeat Sac Sac Mate. Howard Stern and the Stuttering Pawns made a clean sweep in round three. Pace and Utley won again in round four to tie Moooooo, HaHaHaHaHaHa. In the final round, Pace won and Green drew against Boys II Ben. Another point would have put the local team in contention for the Class B prize.

MAD RIVER OPEN

Chess players who participate in our local tournaments did well in Springfield at the Mad River Open on the weekend of February 2-4, 1996. We have received word that Bill Pace split the Class A prize money of $180 for his 2.5-2.5 record in the Open section. In the Premier section for those rated under 1800, Tom Utley was in a six way tie for first. And, in the Reserve section, Bruce Goodwin won $90 for third place with a 4-1 record. In the following game, Bruce shares his third round win using a tip he discovered in the last newsletter.
