OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG!

An <OPENING CATASTROPHE> on Board 1 in Round 10:

10 ... g5-g4 0-1

If the White f3-knight moves, then Black plays 11 ... ♘e4x♘d2 and White cannot take back becase 12 ♕d1x♘d2?? ♗f8-b4 <PINS> the White d2-queen to the e1-king.

A *crushing* way to lose a White game on Board 1 late in the tournament. White must have been in shock after this game.

<THE UNDERRATED REMOVAL OF THE GUARD> stikes again!

<chessvcr: She could still continue.... Ofcourse a big advantage for black...>

True, but the mental shock of what just happened must have been overwhelming.

Here she is, White on Board 1 late in the World Junior Championship with a legitimate shot at the title and she is *dead* lost on move 10. Ugh!

Oct-16-14  siggemannen: What was the losing move? Bd3 looks bad already?

<siggemannen: What was the losing move? Bd3 looks bad already?>

The retreat to h4 was the losing move. The engine says retreat to f4 and White is much better.

9 ♗g5-h4?

(VARIATION)
9 ♗g5-f4

Chess can be such a subtle game. The difference between the seemingly equal retreats 9 ♗g5-h4? and 9 ♗g5-f4! is a whopping 2.5 pawns!

Oh, I finally see why now.

IF White had played 9 ♗g5-f4!, then 9 ... g7-g5 could be met by 10 ♗f4-c7!, attacking the Black a5-queen that <INDIRECTLY DEFENDS> the <UNPROTECTED> Black e4-knight by <PINNING> the White d2-knight.

(VARIATION)
9 ♗g5-f4! g7-g5 10 ♗f4-c7!

Somone please check this with an engine. This is *my* analysis.

Oct-16-14  MarkFinan: 9.h4 looks like playable, but yeah Nd3 doesn't look good. this is like a game I'd play if I didn't follow the opening book moves! Well maybe not that bad, but white must have been having a really bad day, because no one should get into this position who's above 1500. Let alone 2300+!
Nov-26-14  Mr. V: What a shame that when two of my favorite rising players meet, one of them must lose in such a fashion.
