(1) Moldovan,John (1812) - Hueckel,Jackson (1789) [E99]
Garden State Chess League Kenilworth, NJ (3.1), 07.05.2009
[Moldovan & Rybka 2.3]
E99 King's Indian Defense
Mar del Plata Variation
[I expected 3...d5
but my opponent wanted to avoid a possible 4.d4
& repeat of his 1st-round loss to Kenilworth's Stoyko.]
[I generally prefer 4.d4
but had used that against another S.I. member (Ed Selling) in 2006 (KST).
Now, let's see if we're going to discuss the K's Indian or Accelerated Dragon.]
see my Sept. 2005 game vs. West Orange's Walter Stephan, Sr.]
Bayonet Attack 9...Nd7
Moldovan - tarkos : G/20, jeu.echecs.com 05/02/2007]
Moldovan - dzomba : G/15 Tourney, FICS 03/03/2005]
[NM Yaacov Norowitz suggested 11.f4
but I checked my Chess Publishing files & GM Victor Mikhalevski gives an equalizing line starting with 11...exf4
[This is probably a little slow. 13.c5
was a good alternative.]
[A new try for Black who has essayed 13...g5
4x; & 13...c6
I have the exact same setup as in the tarkos game. Hueckel has ...Bd7 in place of ...h5.
[The steed is heading to c4 to put more heat on d6 but Rybka says >=16.b5
>= ...Ng6 +/= here or next.
; or 20.fxg4
[This relieves the pressure. >=21.Rc1+/-
; or 21.Qb2+/-
[Worried about stopping ...Ng3+, I never realized that he was giving me a P ( 23.fxg4+/-
[This is too aggressive. 26.h3+/-
would have put White ahead again.]
[The drops an Exchange & the game. 33.Ne2!
(or Nb5!) 33...Rxa4
would've maintained the balance.]
With each move, White's position worsens. I should've quit here. The rest was unnecessary.
Time left - Moldovan 4:11, Hueckel 30:03
Estimated time used - Moldovan 74:09, Hueckel 48:12
Longest think by White - 6 minutes for 19.Rad1
Longest thinks by Black - 4 minutes for 16...Rg8 & 19...g4.
A very disappointing loss. A win here + one by Gordon Agress (on board 3) would've given us (Maplewood) the match. But, alas, we fell 3.5-0.5.
