TL60 :: R6 – Another draw!

LightSpartans 2-2 Chude_Dziki_B
White marjohn 1/2-1/2 cytrus
Black cjldx 1/2-1/2 ziomeksee
White Troisvierges 1-0 hajdzik
Black LordTyraad 0-1 paulonioSL

Round 6 was a good one with fighting games. With a win we could overpass the team Chude_Dziki_B and would easily gain a ticket for the playoff, now with the draw still there are some chances left for that aim.

On board 1 marjohn outplayed his opponent and won a pawn on the middle game. Unfortunately he misjudged a plan in the endgame which practically locked his rook out of play and a theoretical draw soon reached.

On board 2 cjldx had some real chances to finish his opponent but missed some important moves, at the end the draw was a good result since he was down the exchange.

On board 3 Troisvierges outplayed tactically his opponent and was a piece up since move 11 ! He technically won the position by exchanging more pieces, his opponent resigned on move 25.

On board 4 LordTyraad made some positional mistakes out of the opening and got a very difficult position to defend. He tried sacrificing his Q for an escape from the pressure but in vain.

After 6 rounds LightSpartans are in 3rd place in the standing with only half point behind the leaders!
