|Aug-09-14|| ||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.|
|Aug-10-14|| ||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: https://www.flickr.com/photos/90168... Is she playing Richard Rapport there?|
|Aug-10-14|| ||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.
|Aug-11-14|| ||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.|
|Aug-11-14|| ||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.|
|Aug-12-14|| ||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.|
|Aug-12-14|| ||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.|
|Aug-12-14|| ||waustad: If she plays tomorrow, the opponent is Indonesia. They're top board is Irine Kharisma Sukandar, who usually opens with 1.) e4.|
|Aug-14-14|| ||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.|
|Aug-14-14|| ||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.|
|Sep-03-14|| ||waustad: She is entered in the Austrian Blitz and Rapid championships, which will take place in Gamlitz the first weekend in November.|
|Sep-05-14|| ||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.
|Sep-21-14|| ||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: http://www.schachbund.de/SchachBL/f...
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.

|Sep-24-14|| ||waustad: Sunday OSG Baden Baden plays SC Bad Königshofen 1967, which is another favorite to win it all. Perhaps we'll see move GMs playing this weekend than usual for the FBL.|
|Sep-27-14|| ||waustad: I can't find live games, but both Muzychuk sisters are playing and Eva M is playing on board 4 in a game that is not yet completed. As of now OSG Baden Baden leads 1.5/0.5: http://nsv-online.de/ligen/fbl-1415...|
|Sep-27-14|| ||waustad: Today she won playing black against Martina Korenova.|
|Sep-27-14|| ||waustad: Assuming there are no changes from yesterday, she'll probably be playing white against Olga Girya. As usual when she's white, it would be foolhardy to even guess what opening will be played. Hopefully somebody like chessbase will eventually show us the games.|
|Sep-28-14|| ||waustad: Moser's win over Olga Girya today, along with one by Mariya Muzychuk over Valentina Gunina, gave OSG Baden Baden a win over their top rival Bad Königshofen dispite the loss by Ekaterina Kovalevskaya to Lilit Mrktchian. They have worse tiebreaks early on, but have played two of the stronger teams so this is not a surprise.|
|Oct-01-14|| ||waustad: I wonder if she'll play at the Internationales Schachopen Graz 2015 A-Turnier. It looks like it could be a reasonable shot at another GM norm. There are already 6 GMs out of 24 entered and 8 foreign players. Only one day has 2 rounds, so it seems to be set up to make norms possible.|
|Oct-10-14|| ||waustad: The second round in the Styrian League is tomorrow, where Eva is on the list for SV Schachamazonen Graz. Another player listed for them is Melanie Ohme, though neither played in the first round.|
|Oct-11-14|| ||waustad: She played today for the Schachamazonen Graz and beat IM Michal Meszaros (2408). If they follow the pattern from the last round, games should be available in a day or so. The team is living up to its name since they won over an all male team SPG Horn Ratten-Krieglach by +3 =3 -2, with all 3 wins by women. http://chess-results.com/tnr135083....|
|Oct-12-14|| ||perfidious: <waustad> Triumph of the Amazons!|
|Oct-13-14|| ||waustad: A name that has recently cropped up among the Austrian women is Eliza Truszkiewicz, who was one of the amazons mentioned above. It seems she changed federations from Poland to Austria in August.|
|Oct-20-14|| ||waustad: The round 2 games for the Steirische Landesliga 2014/2015 are now out: http://chess-results.com/partieSuch...
Her win over Michal Meszaros is a Sicilian that was outside of this database by move 4. She won 2 pawns and her opponent resigned.|
