Hello all,

Wight054 and i welcome you all to our challenge consisting of 4 simultaneous thematic games.

No specific time-rules, moving once each 24/48 hours as a guideline.
After first-move synchronisation (see Board 4) moving on all four boards at once.

Board 1: Wight054 vs. SchachProfi in a D05: Queen's pawn game, Rubinstein (Colle-Zukertort) variation
1. d4 d5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. e3 e6 4. Bd3 c5 5. b3 *
(I'm interested in this one because i pretty often face black's side of it on playchess.com
and its pretty fancy merchandised in literature, and it's time for some thinkings regarding a
general strategy against it... to me a pretty positional&tactical starting-point for both sides)

Board 2: SchachProfi vs. Wight054 in a C40: Latvian counter-gambit
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 f5 *
(Also this 2... f5-one is blitzed commonly on playchess.com...)

Board 3: Wight054 vs. SchachProfi in a A00: Hammerschlag (Fried fox/Pork chop) opening
1. f3 e5 2. Kf2 *
(The pure provocation when seen on playchess.com... :lol:,
in correspondence for sure not as easy to bash nor defend as it might look...)

Board 4: SchachProfi vs. Wight054 in a C00 French: Wing gambit
1.e4 e6 2.Nf3 d5 3.e5 c5 4.b4 *
(An interesting idea i haven't followed deeper till now... but the time has come! :smile:)

Wight054, i'm waiting for you move on Board 4 and will move then,
wishing you good luck, move-masterpieces and especially a lot of fun,

Alex

Ok, here is round 1:

Board 1: Wight054 vs. SchachProfi in a D05: Queen's pawn game, Rubinstein (Colle-Zukertort) variation
1. d4 d5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. e3 e6 4. Bd3 c5 5. b3 b6 *
(Just a rarely played sideline, but it smiled a little bit at me as a human-Indian/Meran-player...
the knight on c6 would look a little misplaced, the dark bishop has not yet decided where to go
and exchanging on d4 would be a little early and lame and also spoil the game in my opinion...
the game lives of whether black can resist whites king-side attack and no pawn-collecting...)

Board 2: SchachProfi vs. Wight054 in a C40: Latvian counter-gambit
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 f5 3. exf5 *
(Taking with the knight is the mainline which i definately would play in a human-game,
but i wanted to test here the sideline meaning taking with the e-pawn)

Board 3: Wight054 vs. SchachProfi in a A00: Hammerschlag (Fried fox/Pork chop) opening
1. f3 e5 2. Kf2 d5 *
(There is no real opening theory for this one... so the choice is simply between classical
placing centre-pawns or the hypermodern aim with developing one of the two knights)

Board 4: SchachProfi vs. Wight054 in a C00 French: Wing gambit
1.e4 e6 2.Nf3 d5 3.e5 c5 4.b4 cxb4 5. a3 *
(Theory prefers d4 here, but i wanted to make the wing-gambit a wing-wing-gambit)

Have fun,

Alex

I do love the way Alex comments on games :smile:. That is way I have ask him to be one of my commentators in the commentary page of the WBCCC. I true joy that will be. Its hard to do all the commentary by yourself :lol:. So it was a good thing for him to come back at this time :smile:.

An example of his commentary comes form this page. http://rybkaforum.net/cgi-bin/rybkaforum/topic_show.pl?tid=16316

Welcome all to round 3, "Da night of da d4-pawn":

(Dear Wight054, i have an easy to copy&paste version for you below)

Board 1: Wight054 vs. SchachProfi in a D05: Queen's pawn game, Rubinstein (Colle-Zukertort) variation
1. d4 d5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. e3 e6 4. Bd3 c5 5. b3 b6 6. Bb2 Bb7 *
(As already pointed out, b6+Bb7 is a rarely played sideline, but this kind of Neo-Indian-position
smiled a little bit at me as a human-Indian/Meran-player... to me, not speaking just out of
symmetry to white, the bishop finds a natural place b7 and is know waiting for white's further
action to come... often in the Colle system, white plans to play e4 at a time to come, and
the bishop helps strengthen the center-balance for black which is a key to limit down whites
ambitions for a king-side-attack with its bishops already dangerously pointing to...
Still the play of Bb7 is also still choice of not wanting to exchanging on d4 (a little early and
lame and also spoil the game in my opinion) and also the fact of just being unsure where to
place the queens-knight and the kings-bishop... this decision has to be made the next moves.)

FEN:
rn1qkb1r/pb3ppp/1p2pn2/2pp4/3P4/1P1BPN2/PBP2PPP/RN1QK2R w KQkq - 2 7


Board 2: SchachProfi vs. Wight054 in a C40: Latvian counter-gambit
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 f5 3. exf5 Nf6 4. d4 *
(I also consider 3... Nf6 being the best in this position, not really favored by over-the-board-
theory till today. I also had a deep look into the calm 4. Nc3 which offered a few interesting
lines -some of them offering nice traps-, sadly also one impressing one for blacks counter-play
and therefore refuting it alltogether in my opinion - will share my lines later as games proceeds.)

FEN:
rnbqkb1r/pppp2pp/5n2/4pP2/3P4/5N2/PPP2PPP/RNBQKB1R b KQkq d3 0 4


Board 3: Wight054 vs. SchachProfi in a A00: Hammerschlag (Fried fox/Pork chop) opening
1. f3 e5 2. Kf2 d5 3. e3 d4 *
(This is in the spirit of Keres vs. Bogoljubov in Salzburg 1943 a little bit opening theory
in the making... i browsed a little through my opportunities, bringing the knights into
play or the king-bishop, but liked this rough pawn-push the most... as crappy as this
opening my look from white's side, just see how calmly the king-side can fully develop
(bishop has the diagonal open to move...) and the king being active part of the game.
There is no real opening theory for this one... so the choice is simply between classical
placing centre-pawns or the hypermodern aim with developing one of the two knights.)

FEN:
rnbqkbnr/ppp2ppp/8/4p3/3p4/4PP2/PPPP1KPP/RNBQ1BNR w kq - 0 4


Board 4: SchachProfi vs. Wight054 in a C00 French: Wing gambit
1. e4 e6 2. Nf3 d5 3. e5 c5 4. b4 cxb4 5. a3 Nh6 6. d4 *
(Whether playing d4 or axb4 here, these lines will most probably lead to equal positions...
the "free" black a&b-pawns are already looking dangerously to march ahead into
whites theority, blacks king is safe and all his pieces enjoy free development,
so its really difficult to spot a valid compensation for white offering the wing-pawn...)

FEN:
rnbqkb1r/pp3ppp/4p2n/3pP3/1p1P4/P4N2/2P2PPP/RNBQKB1R b KQkq d3 0 6


Have fun,

Alex

1. f3 e5 2. Kf2 d5 3. e3 d4 4. Bb5+ c6 *

1. e4 e6 2. Nf3 d5 3. e5 c5 4. b4 cxb4 5. a3 Nh6 6. d4 Nf5 7. axb4 *
(The only move which makes sense in this position, opening the a-file plus winning a tempo)

On Board 1. What did you have in mind for a more double edge game? Not that I don't disagree with that statement. 7.c4 seems one way of doing this. As it invites white the chance to get the classical hanging pawns on d4 and c4 if you go with ..7.cxd4. The only other move is 7.Nbd2. I've read in books about ideas with Na3!? but I don't think that is workable here.

Edit: Surprisingly 7.Na3!?, maybe its playable after all ..7.Be7 8.0-0 0-0 9.dxc5 bxc5 10.c4 and it looks interesting at least. With white having both bishops having open digionals, but you would have to look deep at this to find a decent plan.

Jimmy,

welcome to this thread, guess you have missed my post here :wink:: http://rybkaforum.net/cgi-bin/rybkaforum/topic_show.pl?pid=298403#pid298403

Regarding Board 1: Well yes, my intends are always for interesting games reaching double-sworded positions full of tactical and/or positional open questions, opposite rochaded kings or even non-rochaded ones and attacks on one or two flanks in best case - in over the board play this Rubinstein-Colle is already asking for such one, here in correspondance chess of course engines have to be persuaded to take such risks at all... i did & tried my best to do so playing the Neo-Indian b6-Bb7 plus Bd6 (this move is indeed the most risky which i can play to still hold the position till now, developing the knight to c6 or exchanging the center-pawn to open the c-file would be less risky but -as i already pointed out- spoil the game little. Yes, sure 7. O-O is the book move here, but white could have done great things to sharpen this game, moving its queen-knight (d2,c3,a3?!) or even its king-one (e5?), even considering an king-side-attack without rochading at all as well as other ideas generating action in the center (d4)... 7. O-O now forces me to consolidate my position and to trade down pieces soon, white being absolutely ready to create and extend positional nuances... Alex
