Olga Kamyshleeva – Natalia Sadowska 1 set regular game

2 September, 11.00 a.m.- main referee press clocks and the match started!

01.32-28. Olga begins the first game and the match the most common way. Time for 1.33-29 has not cфme yet. 1…17-22 02.28×17 12×21. Natalia demonstrates aggressive intentions immediately starting to capture space. 03.31-27 21×32 04.38×27. Dutch imperturbably shows that will not let opponent dictate tempogame, but has not nothing against to maneuvere in the classical position. 04…07-12 05.43-38 19-23 06.49-43 14-19 07.37-32 10-14 08.41-37 11-17 09.33-28 20-24.White reached their debut goal, receiving the closed position of classical type. 10.36-31. Unclear why but from this moment Kamyshleeva ignore to do 39-33, which right now and over the next few moves would be very timely.

12.28-22?! Course for simpifications. Again harder was 12.39-33 etc. 12…17×28 13.41-36 28-33! Voluntary returning of the piece is the best continuation. 14.38×20 15×24 15.42-38 05-10 16.47-42 10-15 17.39-33 14-20 18.33-28 09-14 19.44-39 12-17 20.39-33?! White plays inconsistently. Exactly here changing maneuver 20.28-22 17×28 21.27-21 16×27 22.31×33 looked more preferable that plan choosed in the game. 20…17-22 21.28×17 11×22 22.34-29 23×34 23.40×29 08-12

Has occurred almost symmetrical position in which emerges small black advantage. Delays so necessary to white 24.43-39? because of 24…22-28! -+. Kamyshleeva finds good stabilizing plan. 24.31-26 22×31 25.36×27. Now rear of white left flank is weakened, but it is temporarily, because after few moves white regroup their rows, promoting a clumsy design on this wing. The important thing is that the black 25…19-23 is not allowed because of simple tactics 26.32-28 23×41 27.29-23 (this piece must be given out, after hurried 27.42-37? 41×21 28.26×10?? 20-25! 29.29×20 25×05 wins black) 27…18×29 28.42-37 41×21 29. 26×10+. 25…04-09 26.43-39! 02-07 27.27-22! 18×27 28.32×21 16×27 29.29-23 19×28 30.33×31

Occurred position I would like to call – Great Drying. If it happen in men grandmasters game most likely that after ten moves reaching protocol number fourty – peace agreement will be fixed. But women draughts has their own laws. 30…06-11 31.31-27 14-19 32.39-33 24-29! (black plays actively and it is right!) 33.33×24 20×29 34.37-32 11-17 35.50-44 (of course 35.45-40?? 29-33! 36.38×29 17-22 37.27×18 12×45+ cannot happen on this level) 35…13-18 36.44-39 09-14 37.45-40 15-20 38.40-34 29×40 39.35×44 20-24 40.38-33 14-20

It is time to shake hands and to go for a rest before games with shortened time control. And most likely this feeling relaxed Olga too much. 41.32-28? Why so? These changings are to black favor! After 41.42-38 white has not even slight problems. 41…18-22 42.27×18 12×32 43.33-29 24×33 44.39×37. Kamyshleeva was sure that the position five against five cannot be loosing by definition. Of course, this is true, but voluntarily to get this passive situation was the wrong choise. Despite the skimpy material black dominate on whole board. To defend for Dutch is unpleasantly, and also time shortage worries her. 44…19-23 45.42-38 17-22! 46.37-31 22-28!

47.26-21? Realizing what she made with their own hands over the past six moves, Olga finally confused. She had to change back 47.38-32 28×37 48.31×42 and draw is attainable. An attempt to create pressure on the same flank of the black is wrong, white resources for it is clearly not enough. But, on the contrary, the threesome of attacking black pieces are very dangerous. After error of Kamyshleeva, only computer may still can make defense, but protein organism is not able to do it. 47…20-24 48.21-16 23-29 49.31-26 03-08 50.26-21 08-12 51.44-39 [51.21-17 12×21 52.16×27 29-34 53.27-21 07-12! (но не 53…24-30? 54.21-17 30-35 55.48-42 34-40 56.42-37! 40×49 57.17-11! 49×46 58.11×02=) and black are going to win] 51…24-30 52.48-42 (52.21-17 12×21 53.16×27 28-32 with decisive advantage) 52…30-35 53.42-37

It still seems that white has some chances to escape, but it is mirage, they are hopeless. 53…35-40 54.38-32 (54.39-34 40-44 55.34×32 44-50+) 54…28-33! 55.39×28 40-44 56.32-27 (otherwise 56…44-50+) 56…44-49 57.28-22 (57.27-22 12-18 58.22×13 07-11 59.16×07 49×46+; 57.37-31 49-35! 58.31-26 35-44! 59.27-22 44-50! 60.21-17 12×21 61.26×17 07-12! 62.17×08 29-33 63.28×39 50×03 64.16-11 03-12+) 57…49-35! The most simple solution! 58.22-18 (what other?) 58…12×23 59.21-17 35-44! 60.16-11 07×16 61.17-12 23-28! Sadowska precise like Swiss clocks! Now after 62.12-08 or 62.12-07 wins 62…16-21 63.27×16 28-32+, and after 62.37-31 28-32 63.27×38 44-17+. 62.37-32. Despair. Easier was to resign. 62…28×37 63.12-07 44-50! 64.07-02 37-41 and Kamyshleeva recognized her defeat of 0-12. Poland exults, Holland pines!
