Below are one interesting position occur during the tournament.
Mohd Zambri Syarif vs Kamaluddin Yusof
NMCC Friday Night Blitz Thematic 2-09
Zambri (white) is leading a piece and should have won the game but Kamaluddin who is well known with his swindle resources try his best to confuse matter. I don't remember what Zambri's reply after the diagram above but Fritz gave the winning line as follow:-
1.Bxa8 ! 1.bxc3 Qxb7 is more or less equal. 1...cxb2 2.Rb1 bxc1Q 3.Rdxc1! This is the idea. A tricky one. Black has to spent a tempo to move his queen from being attack and then after 3...Qd6 And White bishop is safe after 4.Bb7 However in the actual game Zambri lost the game . I wonder how the game proceed after diagram above
