Round 5 : NM Edward Lee - IM Jimmy Liew : 1-0

NM Edward Lee beat top seed - IM Jimmy Liew in round 5, National  Closed which was yesterday. This is Jimmy  first lost against the juniors in this tournament. Although by age, Edward is still a junior, he can actually be considered as a senior because of his National Master title. He has also played with Jimmy  at  the 2008 Dresden, Olympiad.

One of my friend told that Jimmy is showing a good example by particapting in this tournament. He is willing to risk his rating -2302 . Second seed - NM Edward Lee is 128 points less then him!

NM Edward Lee - IM Jimmy Liew
National Closed 2011, Round 5, 17.3.2011

Analysed by centaur (Hairulov+Fritz)
1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e5 c5 5. a3 cxd4 6. bxc3 Is the main line but Jimmy must have preapred this sideline.

6. axb4 dxc3 7. bxc3 My friend Rizal Ahmad Kamal said he prefer the more aggresive 7. Qg4

7... Qc7 8. Nf3 Ne7  9. Qd4 Theory recomend 9. Bd3 giving the c3 pawn for development. 9... Qxc3+ 10. Bd2 Qc7

9... Nbc6 10. Qc5 b6 11. Qd6

11...Qxd6 12. exd6 This pawn looks weak but actually it did discoordinated black pieces.

12... Ng6 13.h4 O-O Maybe black doesn't need to castle king side. Alternative is 13...Kd7 14. h5 Nge5 15. Bf4 Nxf3+ 16. gxf3 e5 17. Be3 Bb7 (17... Kxd6 ? 18. Bxb6)

14. Bb5 Bd7 15. Bxc6 Bxc6 16. h5 Nh8 Maybe this knight did' not wish to come here.

17. h6!


17...g6 Now it is more difficult for black to manuever the knight on h8.

18. Ne5 Bb5 19. Ng4 f6 20. f4?! 20. Rh3 f5 21. Ne5 Nf7 $11 22. Bf4 Rfd8 23. Nxf7 Kxf7

20... Bd7? Black can win the d6 pawn with 20... f5! 21. Ne5 Rfd8

21. Bb2 e5 22. Ne3 Be6? 23. fxe5 fxe5 23... Nf7 24. O-O-O 

24. Rd1 24. O-O-O! is also strong

24... Nf7  25. Nxd5 Nxd6?  I think this is the crucial mistake. 25... Bxd5 would allow Black to play on 26. Rxd5 Rac8


26. Nc7! Now black will lose material. 26...Nc4 27. Nxa8 27. Nxe6! is stronger. 27...Nxb2 ( 27... Rf6 28. Ng5 Nxb2 29. Rd7!) 28. Rb1  Rf6 29. Nc7 Rc8 30. Nd5 Rf7 ( 30... Rd6?? 31. Ne7+) 31. Rxb2

27... Nxb2 27... Rxa8  probably offere more resistnace. For e.g 28. Bc1 $14 Bg4 29. Rd3 Bf5  and black is threatening to take the c2 pawn.

28. Rd6 Bf5 29. Nc7 Nc4 30. Rd5 Rc8 31. Nb5 Be6 32. Rd3 32. Rd1 Ne3 33. Rd6


32... e4? 32... Bf5 is better 33. Nd6 Nxd6 34. Rxd6 Kf7

33. Rd4 e3 34. Ke2 34. Rf1 keeps an even firmer grip  34...Bf5 35. Nxa7 Ra8 36. Rxc4 Rxa7 

34... Ne5?  34... a6 35. Nd6 Nxd6 36. Rxd6 

35. Re4 Bg4+ 35... Bc4+  will be a answer with 36. Kxe3 Ng4+ 37. Rxg4 Bxb5 38. Kd2 

36. Kxe3 Nc4+ 37. Kf4 Bd7 38. Nd4 Kf7 39. Rhe1 Kf6 40. Re7 Rd8 40... g5+  cannot change destiny 41. Kg3 Rd8 42. Rg7 

41. Rxh7 41. Nf3  threatening 42.Ng5 and 43.Rf7++ checkmate is stronger.

41... g5+ 42. Kg3 Nd6 43. Rhe7 a5 44. h7 Nf7 45. bxa5 bxa5 46. R7e3 46. Nc6 seems even better 46...Bxc6 47. R1e6+ Kg7 48. Rxc6

46... Rh8 47. Rf1+ Kg6 48. Re7 Be8 49. Re6+ Kg7 50. Nf5+ The end is near.

50...Kf8 51. Nd6! Black resign. because after 51. Nd6 Kg7 52. Nxe8+ 1-0
