Ian Udani (2286) vs Yeoh Li Tian (1973)
3rd DATCC Team Event, round 3, 14.4.2010
Unfortunately i can`t remember the previous moves but believe me, Ian was totally winning. However the 11 years old kid - Li Tian show a nerve of steel by playing stubborn defense. 1. Kg6 if 1. Kg7 Rg4+ 2. Kf7 Rh4 1... Rg4+ 2. Kf6
probably Ian only calculated 2.Kh6 Rh4+ ?? 3. Nh5
blocking the check and queen the h-pawn but he forgot that black have a nasty check with 2... Rxg3!
which turn the table completely after 3.h8=Q Rh3+ 4. Kg7 Rxh8 5.
Kxh8 Kd2 6. Kg7 Kxe2 7. Kf6 Kxd3 8. Ke5 Ke3 and it`s black who have the last laugh! 2... Rh4 3.Kg7 Rg4+ draw 1/2-1/ 2
This draw gave Think Big a valuable half points to win the match with 2.5-1.5 against Team AU.
