  luzhin: Gawain Jones has a deep understanding of the dynamics of the King's Indian, as shown by his daring 14...f4, involving a Queen sacrifice. David Bronstein, the great King's Indian pioneer, would have loved this game.
Sep-06-16  GlennOliver: Fine comment, luzhin.

This game from Gawain Jones is surely a candidate for any Brilliancy award for the current Olympiad.

Sep-06-16  Bruce Graham: <GlennOliver> Agreed. An astonishing game. Gawain's Gem.
Sep-06-16  gokusano: He should more often play this kind of game. This game is a crowd drawer. Long live chess!
Sep-06-16  mckmac: What a terrific game. Well played GM Jones. Just when you think, this is too good, this can't go on any longer, it keeps on getting better! Chapeau to both players.

  luzhin: One of the most attractive aspects of this is the way Jones never stops to play Ng3xh1 --which means the galloping steed is later able to hurtle across to other side of the board and take part in the final attack.
Sep-07-16  mckmac: <Luzhin> Absolutely. The Rh1 hangs there en prise for a remarkable eight moves.

FM Anh Koi Nguyen is only fourteen years old. His bio lists him as the winner of the World U12 title in 2014. I really like the way he threw everything into the defence.

Oct-28-16  Dave12: 30.Nd2 e3 31.Nc4 e2 and things become realy fun.
Dec-25-16  Saniyat24: What a brilliant game...! After Black's 24th move the board looks pretty as a picture. White has Queen in b1, King in b2, Bishop at b3 and a pawn in b4...haven't seen anything like that before...
Dec-25-16  Saniyat24: ...and a White Knight at f3 and Black Knight at g3!
Dec-26-16  talwnbe4: 'puter (Fruit 2.1) gives the following line 19. Rh2 Bd7 20. Qf3 Nxf1 21. Nxf1 Rac8 22. Qe3 Bb5+ 23. Kd2 Rc4 24. Rc1 Rd4+ 25. Kc2 even game, apparently the sac was sound also
19. Rh2 Bd7 20. Qf3 Nxf1 21. Nxf1 Rac8 22. Qxf2 Bb5+ 23. Kd2 Bh6+ 24. Ne3 Rc4 is ok 0.00
19. Kc2 Bd7 20. Bxa6 bxa6 21. Kb2 Bh6 22. Nc4 Nxh1 23. Qxh1 Ba4 0.5
Dec-26-16  talwnbe4: really great queen sac.. definitely one of the best

  MKD: What if white plays 9.Bc5?
Dec-26-16  Shams: <MKD> The future belongs to the man with the bishops, as <keypusher> is fond of quoting. Chopping on c5 would be a strategic disaster; the slight weakness of Black's doubled c-pawns isn't nearly enough compensation for White's having shipped the much more promising of his two bishops. I don't see much of a plan for White's minors whereas Black can go for simple and strong plans like planting a knight on d6 and threatening pawn breaks on either wing.

I'd back myself against an FM if you gave me Black after 9.Bxc5 bxc5. My (provisional) FIDE rating is in the low 1900s so I guess I'm calling 9.Bxc5 something on the order of a 400 rating point mistake. :)

  MKD: <Shams> I agree. I was too impressed by creation of double pawns on c file. But you can forgive me having a rating of around 1550. -:) On a serious note I have been benefitted from your analysis of the position. Thanks.
