Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-25-04  jaime gallegos: only one game of the 16th CC World Champion !
see http://www.chessmail.com/players/ha...

Sicilian B33

Kofidis, Spiridon F
Hamarat, Tunc

CC World Championship XVI Final, 1999-2000

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 e6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 Nc6 6. Ndb5 d6 7. Bf4 e5 8. Bg5 a6 9. Na3 b5 10. Nd5 Be7 11. Bxf6 Bxf6 12. c3 Bg5 13. Nc2 O-O 14. a4 bxa4 15. Rxa4 a5 16. Bc4 Rb8 17. Ra2 Kh8 18. Nce3 g6 19. h4 Bxh4 20. g3 Bg5 21. b4!?

A new move. White plans a dangerous attack. For this plan he weakens his pawn position.

21... Bxe3 22. fxe3 Kg7!

The best move. Black has to play very carefully as the following variation shows:

22... f5? 23. b5! Na7 24. Rah2 Rb7 25. b6 Qg5 26. Qf3 Nc6 27. Nc7

23. Rah2

23. b5 Ne7 24. Nxe7 Qxe7 25. Rxa5 Bb7 with the better game for Black(25... Qc7 is also possible.)

23... Rh8! 24. b5 Na7!

24... Ne7 25. Nf6!! with big complications and I think with better chances for White.

25. b6 Nc6 26. Qa4 Ne7! 27. Nxe7

27. O-O Nxd5 28. Bxd5 Be6 29. Bxe6 fxe6 30. Rhf2 Rxb6 31. Rf7+ Kh6 32. Qxa5 Rb2

27... Qxe7 28. Qxa5 Bb7

After this move there is no salvation for White. This is a typical case when the attack fails, the weaknesses of the attacking side remain. In the present case, it's White's pawn structure.

29. Rf1

Other moves are not better.

29... Ra8

29... Ra8 White resigns. Maybe a bit early but the following variations show his hopeless situation. 30. Rhf2!? (30. Qb4 Ra1+ 31. Ke2 (31. Kd2 Rxf1 32. Bxf1 Qg5) 31... Rxf1 32. Kxf1 Bxe4) 30... Rxa5 31. Rxf7+ Qxf7 32. Rxf7+ Kh6 33. Rxb7 Rc8

0-1 [Hamarat, Chess Mail 8/2000]

Jan-28-05  Pawsome: Hamarat Challenge Match

The ICCF World Champion Tunc Hamarat (AUT) who has never lost a single game with White, has challenged the "Rest of the World" to a friendly 2-game match. He will have White in both games. The games (one will start with 1.e4 and one with 1.d4) will be played on the ICCF Webserver and started on 10th February 2005 with the rule "10 moves/70 days".

The players on the "Rest of the World" team will vote on each move. The move receiving the most votes will be selected. Should 2 or more moves receive the same number of votes, the "Rest of the World" will be given 2 more voting days to decide between the tied moves. Participation in this event is open to all players who pay an entry fee of 5 EUR or $7.00 US dollars via their National CC Federation or the ICCF Direct Entry (DE) option. All fees collected will be transferred to the ICCF Development Fund. The money will be used primarily for development and system support of the ICCF WebChess Server. It will be possible to join the "Rest of the World" team at any stage of the game.

Hasn't lost a single game as white, why that trumps Kasparov. I'm looking forward to this match!
