FM <Warren Elliott> first learned chess when he was only 11 years old. His first chess Tournament was the Albion ladder league, which was held in 1992 in Montego bay, which is his place of birth. FM Elliott made a tremendous impact on the chess scene in Kingston when he won the 1998 Jamaica Open. Since then he has never looked back. FM Warren Elliott is only the second player in Jamaica to have achieved the title of Fide Master. His rapid growth in strength in a short period of time, and the forceful way in which he has burst into the top three (3) three ranking is perhaps unequalled in the history of chess in Jamaica.

The 2004 Jamaican national chess championships have taken on added significance as the 36th Chess Olympiad is scheduled to be held in Mallorca, Spain in October, 2004. Jamaica's freshly-minted number one rated player FM Warren Elliott started his quest for the 2004 national title by using the White pieces to defeat the solid NM Russel Porter in round one in a tense Sicilian affair.

|Aug-08-08|| ||myschkin: FM Warren Elliott (2377) - NM Russel Porter (2298) [B48]
36th Jamaican Chapionships, NMLS Kingston, Jamaica (1), 28.02.2004
<1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nc6 5.Nc3 Qc7> [ Elliott could have given serious consideration to 6.Ndb5!?|^ and after 6...Qb8 7.Be3 Nf6 8.f4 with White clearly having the initiative.] <6...a6 7.Qd2 Nf6 8.0-0-0 Bb4 9.f3 Na5> [ 9...d5!?] <10.Nb3 d5 11.e5>= Up to the first ten moves the Jamaicans were following the very recent "TV" clash when the "fastest pawn in the East" conquered the combative man from the Balkans after 11.Kb1 Nxb3 12.axb3 dxe4 13.Nb5 Qe7 14.Nc7+ Qxc7 15.Qxb4 Nd5 16.Qxe4 Nxe3 17.Qxe3 Bd7 18.Qd4 e5 19.Qb4 0-0-0 20.Bd3 Be6 0-1 (42), Topalov, V - Anand, A, TV Blitz, Sofia, Bulgaria, 2004. <11...Nd7>= Although Porter has not yet completed his development he has a solid position as his pieces prepare to swarm all over Elliott's countryside. The contest is roughly even. <12.Bd4 Nc6!?> According to the "Silicon beast" Black is slightly better. Porter could have also tried [ 12...Nxb3+ 13.axb3 Qa5 ] <13.f4 Nxd4 14.Nxd4 Bxc3!?> Black creates doubled pawns for White on the "c" file but perhaps he could have maintained the pin a bit longer and tried to improve the position of his pieces with [ 14...Nc5 and if 15.Qe3 Qa5 16.Nde2= preserves a tense equality.] <15.Qxc3 Qxc3 16.bxc3>= After the dust has settled the position seems to be level. <16...b5 17.Bd3 Nc5 18.Rde1> This looks like a slight inaccuracy. Although the queens are off the board, the Black king is still in the centre. White should have gone on the offensive immediately with [ 18.h4!] 18...Bd7 The point. After this simple developing move, Black is better. <19.Kd2 Rc8 20.Re3 0-0 21.Rhe1 Rc7 22.Rh3> [ One possible way for the Montegonian to have launched a counter-offensive was with 22.g4!? but the Kingstonian would have still had the edge after 22...Rfc8 23.f5 Na4! when the weakness created on c3 is manifest.] <22...g6 23.Ree3 f5 24.exf6 Rxf6 25.Rh4 Na4 26.Reh3> With c3 about to be laid bare Elliott places his card on counter-attack along the h-file. "Mi naw dead so eazi" ("I'm not going to die without a fight") the former national champion must have thought. <26...Be8 27.Ne2> Fortifying c3. <27...Nc5 28.g4 a5 29.g5> The infantryman marches relentlessly forward. <29...Rf8 30.Nd4!>= The steed gallops to a really perfect square in the heart of the battlefield. Warren was now threatening to win the pawn on b5 and seemed to have re-taken the initiative. <30...b4> The dreaded Fide time control which has drawn so many complaints was, by now, affecting Porter seriously. <31.cxb4 axb4 32.Nf3 Nxd3! 33.cxd3 Ra7 34.Ke3 Rxa2??> In the severe time crunch, Porter hurriedly grabs the pawn....a fatal blunder. After the correct continuation [ 34...Rf5! Black is at least equal with his b-passer looking very dangerous.] <35.Rxh7> and in a huff the national master left the playing area in a manner reminiscent of the 11th world champion Bobby Fischer. In the final position, Black has no good moves and he can only stave off mate by serious material loss. For example, 35...d4+ (35...Rf5 runs into mate after 36.Rh8+ Kf7 37.R3h7#) 36.Nxd4 Bd7 (leaving e8 for the monarch) 37.Rxd7 + - reaping the harvest.
