  waustad: The bottom two boards won, so the Austrians are still undefeated as a team. Today they face Slovakia and top board will be the battle of the Evas as Moser will play black against IM Eva Repkova 2358. They have never played before as far as I can tell, but Repkova has been a 1.) e4 player for almost every game available on the net. She has once played white against a Philidor Hanham E Repkova vs Z Mamedjarova, 2008 so perhaps that will be on tap, though Moser is not that predictable.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Eva M won as black in a King's Indian. The other boards are not looking as good. All of the Austrians got into some time trouble and now all 3 look worse.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Tomorrow's pairing of Austria vs Sweden could pit two of my favorite players on board 1. The only game I've seen between Eva Moser and Pia Cramling was at a Greek team tournament and was one Moser would probably like to forget. It was in the first round and set the tone for the event. Cramling had a good tourney and Moser did not. It may be on the chessbase database, but I'm not sure where I saw it. This time it looks like the Austrian first board will be white.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: So far they are following this game C Ali Marandi vs Negi, 2012 in a Sicilian Alapin.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Time trouble again. The comps had her winning, but she was down to just over increment around move 20. She went for a tactical solution that didn't work and lost.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: The down side of the "Phantasie statt Theorie" approach is perpetual time trouble. When one plays in the occasional Swiss that's fine. As the top board in the olympiad it makes it stressful for one's fans. Today's game with Pia Cramling was a classic example, with two players I have enjoyed for some time, where both have had a lot of time trouble issues in the past. Watching live Moser had a better position according to the comps and it looked pretty good from my patzer's eyes. Then she got down to close to increment only and tried to mix it up instead of pushing her biggest strategic ace in the hole, her a pawn. She'd squish me from either side at bullet speed, but against Cramling that is a different matter.
Aug-06-14  Mr. V: Hi Waustad, thanks for the commentary! Just out of curiosity, why is Moser one of your favorites?
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: I used to live in Austria years ago and I like her approach to the game, particularly in the opening. As I've mentioned before, it also give me a reason to read some German, which I haven't spoken often since the 70s. Like many players I follow, I first saw a picture, found out the name and looked at a few games. In her case I found games that were a lot of fun. Among the Austrians, Markus Ragger is clearly stronger, but his games aren't as much fun to play through. Since she has a full time job, I suspect that we won't see that much other than league play from her going forward. She rarely seems to play a tournament now days unless she also gets something like a simul along with it to pay expenses.

  waustad: Austria plays Egypt tomorrow, so Eva Moser will probably play black against Mona Khaled. She's a WGM rated 2169 who usually plays 1.) d4. Another possibility is that she'd be rested and the Egyptian 2nd board, Shrook Wafa plays top board in light of her 4.5/5 result so far. In that event we have very little history to go on, but she's played 1.) e4 in all 5 whites in the database. Mona Khaled is another first board born in the US but playing for another country. She's not quite as formidable as the one playing for Italy.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: In her game today Mona Khaled chose to play Bird's opening and it looked rather like a Leningrad Dutch reversed. As usual, lots of time was spent in the opening and Moser was playing on increment from around move 30. White seems to have blundered shortly after that and resigned on move 33.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Eva Moser is resting today against Guatamala. I rather expected that Veronika Exler would have been rested today after her disappointing time trouble loss yesterday after being ahead for most of the game. It has not been a great result so far with +2 =1 -3 in matches. All 5 players have lost some rating points so far and Moser is the only player with a positive personal score at +3 =0 -2. Time trouble has been a team wide issue in most of the games, though it has also been common in many other games in this event.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Austria plays Macedonia tomorrow so the likely matchup on board 1 is Eva Moser vs Gabriela Koskoska. Guessing what Moser will play as white is often difficult, but if she opens with 1.) e4 it will likely become a Scandanavian, given black's history. With Moser's fondness for keeping the opponent off balance, I'd guess 1.) g3, which she's played a lot more than her opponent. Maybe even something like 1.) Nc3 transposing to some flavor of KIA.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: It turned into a KIA via a Sicilian and wound up 1-0 after a time scramble where evals indicated that they traded innacuracies near the end. When the time control was reached, white had penetrated with queen and rook leaving black helpless. For the match overall, Austria drew both blacks and Julia Novkovic is in a knight and pawn endgame with a 2 pawn advantage. It looks likely to end up 3-1.
Aug-10-14  Mr. V: <Here is an interesting piece of artwork depicting EMs time trouble: Is she playing Richard Rapport there?
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: <mr_v>No, though the hair looks about right. Look at the post above that one to find the game.

My prediction that Julia Novkovic would win her game came to naught since she only managed a draw, so Austria won by 2.5-1.5. Tomorrow they play Nicaragua, so they are big elo favorites on all boards. Katharina Newrkla has played every round so far so she's likely to get the round off. We'll see tomorrow morning. The top board for Nicaragua is Ana Daniela Madrigal, who has played 1.) d4 in all of her white games in the database. The most common Moser response in the database here has been 1.) d4 e3, offering to play the French, Dutch or sometimes Tarrasch, though of late she's played the Benoni a lot.

Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: With wins by Veronika Exler and Lisa Hapala and a draw by Julia Novkovic, Austria has won against Nicaragua. The broadcast of the game Ana Daniela Madrigal vs Eva Moser got stuck at move 33 for quite some time. After the usual first time scramble, black came out a bit ahead. It was a Benoni. Either she's taking almost all of the 30 minutes on one move or it's stuck again.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: When moves were finally available, she lost: A D Madrigal vs E Moser, 2014. Tomorrow Austria is playing Canada. If both first boards play it will feature Moser vs Yuanling Yuan.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Confirmed, she's playing Yuanling Yuan, though as usual with Chinese names we get it backwards. The Austrians have a slight lead on the bottom 3 boards elo wise and a fairly large one on top board. Since Moser has played 9 different first moves here, who knows what she'll do this time. Her one Nimzo-Larsen here was not a success, but maybe she did some work on it. Why am I still up at 4 am? If I want to go to the Sinq Cup, I'll have to get to more normal sleeping hours.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: This was not a good day for the Austrian women. Veronika Exler won handily over Natalia Khoudgarian, but a quick loss by Julia Novkovic and a losing position in Katharina Newrkla's game forced Eva Moser to avoid the prudent draw which was available several times during the game. As happens so often, trying to win a draw is the easiest way to lose, and she did. The opening was rather interesting since Moser played the English for a change. This database only had one example of her playing 1.) c4 before today's game.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: If she plays tomorrow, the opponent is Indonesia. They're top board is Irine Kharisma Sukandar, who usually opens with 1.) e4.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: They've posted final round board pairings earlier than most, and the above mentioned pairing is confirmed. Moser is far less predictable than her opponent who is almost Fischer like in her devotion to 1.) e4. Those of us old enough to remember Fischer - Spassky World Championship Match (1972), or those who've followed EMs games here realize how much that's worth.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Austria won 3.5-0.5 over Indonesia. Eva Moser won as black in an Improved Philidor Hanham, Veronika Exler drew and white in a Queen's Indian, Katharina Newrkla won as black in a Sicilian Dragon and Lisa Hapala won a very strange Sicilian.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: She is entered in the Austrian Blitz and Rapid championships, which will take place in Gamlitz the first weekend in November.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Actually if you look at the list of participants, the rapid and blitz championships contain a much better sample of the best Austrian women than the official championships did.

One person I'm surprised hasn't shown up for the championships at any speed is Chiara Polterauer after her great result here:

She held her own in last year's Austrian Women's championship. Then again she's so young maybe they (or she) wanted to let her have a life away from chess for a while.

Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: The FBL begins next weekend. Hopefully they'll make games available this time around. It was quite hit or miss over the last few seasons.

01. + 02. Runde Sa/So, 27/28.09.2014
03. + 04. Runde Sa/So, 29./30.11.2014
05. Runde So, 14.12.2014
06. + 07. Runde Sa/So, 24./25.01.2015
08. + 09. Runde Sa/So, 28./29.03.2015
10. + 11. Runde Sa/So, 18./19.04.2015

I've corrected an obvious typo involving round 9.

More detail can be found here for now:

Although Ms. Moser is listed as board 5 for OSG Baden Baden, I suspect she'll usually be on board 2 since Viktoria Cmilyte and the two Muzychuk sisters probably won't be playing that often, if last season is any indication. Perhaps Anna Zatonskih's pregnancy will be an issue sometime during the season too, which could even move her up to first board against a weaker opponent.
