  Robin01: Ivanchuk is playing the white side of a Ruy today.

Round 8 - Leader - Zdenko Kozul 6'5 points

Apr-12-06  notyetagm: Anyone know the Round 9 pairings?
Apr-12-06  percyblakeney: <Round 9 pairings>

Apr-13-06  notyetagm: <percyblakeney> Thanks.

  Robin01: Any news on the top three boards?
Apr-13-06  percyblakeney: Inarkiev-Ivanchuk -, Naiditsch blundered and will soon resign against Kozul.
Apr-13-06  Ivan23: Naiditisch just resigned. I think his problems started with accepting that pawn sacrifice, altough he obviously mishandled the defence later (...Re2?)
Apr-13-06  percyblakeney: Kozul-Naiditsch before 27. ... Re2:

After the played Re2 white wins with Rd7 or Rd8+. Kozul chose the latter, and the game continued 28. Rd8+ Rxd8 29. Rxd8+ Re8 30. Bxf6 Kf7 31. Qg7+ Ke6 32. Rd1 1-0.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: Have any of you checked out the game this round between M. Gurevich and Postny? I'e never seen anything like it.
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: Gurevich-Postny has livened up with a piece sacrifice on b5. But Black looks okay for the present.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <tamar>--You should mention that the above position was achieved after black's *89th* move. I guess Gurevich finally lost patience and decided to storm the barricades at move 83.
Apr-13-06  Ivan23: That's one long middlegame.
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: <Gregor Samsa Mendel> I suspect Gurevich needs a full point to get substancial prize money.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gregor Samsa Mendel: And Gurevich finally crashes through, squirms away from the perpetual check and brings home the full point after 122 moves! Woo-hoo!
Apr-13-06  doremi: In Georgiev-Palac you see a GM mishandling a simple rook endgame
Apr-13-06  BIDMONFA: 7th European Individual Championship (2006)
Round 9 - Leader - Zdenko Kozul 7'5 points
Apr-13-06  notyetagm: <doremi: In Georgiev-Palac you see a GM mishandling a simple rook endgame>

And that result clearly shows the importance of knowing endgame basics cold. Losing an endgame is just like getting mated in five moves, you get a 0 on your scoresheet.

Apr-13-06  Bobak Zahmat: Naiditsch next opponent is Armenian GM Minasian, who has won 5 games till now!
Apr-13-06  stanleys: Unbelivable game by Kiril Georgiev!I thought he had a lost ending... I agree with doremi and notyetagm and want to add that you could not be a great player without handling the endgames.Think that GM Palac was in a serious time-trouble,but in my opinion he deserved his loss
Premium Chessgames Member
  Chnebelgrind: Kozul has a 100% score with the black pieces!
Apr-14-06  percyblakeney: <Unbelivable game by Kiril Georgiev!I thought he had a lost ending...>

Yep, it's not often you see ♖+♘+4♙ win against ♖+♗+5♙...

Apr-14-06  whatthefat: <Ivan23>
*sigh*, that'll cost me a lot of chessbucks...
Apr-14-06  Ivan23: From the top 3 boards:

Belov-Kozul is a Rossolimo Sicilian with some weird moves by Black.

Ivanchuk-Berescu is a Bogo-Indian with an eaerly queen exchange.

Nikolic and Georgiev agreed on a draw after 13 moves in a Tartakower.
