DATMO 2008 (Round 1), 18.08.2008

The positon below arise after white played his 28 move. Fritz evaluate the position as equal but of coures it's not a simple equal positon but rather dynamic position with lot of possibilities. After 28...Be7 the fight should continue but Wan Yunguo made a desicive mistake with....

28...Bxe4?? which Saprin reply strongly with 29.Rxe4+! Qxe4 30.Rxd7! The sting in the tail as former World Champion Bobby Fischer once said.30.Qxe4?! is clearly weaker 30...Nxe4 31.Bxe4 Ra1 32.Rxa1 Rxa1+ 33.Kg2 f6² and black defend everything and should win the game. 30...Qxf3 31.Rxf7+ an important in between move. White can still lose if he played 31.Nxf3?? White will regret his greed 31...Nxd7 32.Ng4 Ra1+ 33.Kh2 f6 34.Bh6+ Kf7–+ 31...Kh8 32.Bxf3 e4 32...Bxh6 does not solve anything 33.Bxf6+ Rxf6 34.Rxf6+- 33.Bxf6+ Rxf6 34.Rxf6 Bg7 [34...Ra1+ does not win a prize 35.Kh2 Bxh6 36.Bxe4+-] 35.Rb6 exf3 36.Nf7+ Kg8 37.Ng5 Bxc3 38.Rxb5 Ra1+ 39.Kh2 Ra2 40.Nhxf3 Rxf2+ 41.Kg1 Rb2 42.Ne4 Bxb4 43.Rb7 c3 44.Nd4! 1-0

Saprin finish the game elegantly. after 44.Nd4 black can still try with 44... Bc5 !? but White should win after 45.Nxc5 c2 46.Ne2 this move defend everything ! 46...Rb1+ 47.Kf2 c1Q 48.Nxc1 Rxc1 A nice win by Saprin !
