Day #2

The regular game of second set proceeded in approximately equal fight and ended in a legitimate draw. Much more interesting events gone in duels with shortened time control.

 

Olga Kamyshleeva – Natalia Sadowska, 2 set, rapid game

It was reminiscent of the regular game of first set. It would seem almost all pieces had already been exchanged but a few not the most optimal solutions of Olga led her to serious difficulties.

24.28-23! Active move, destroying interaction of black flanks. 24…14-20 25.34-29! 09-13? Serious error but for blitz is explainable. In conditions of limited time it is difficult to see the faithful plan 25…10-14! prohibiting 26.42-37? 27-32!! 27.38×18 14-19!! 28.23×03 12×34 29.03×01 20×49 30.39×30 25×34 31.40×29 49×46 with one piece more in macroendgame. 26.40-34?! Not the best continuation. Much stronger 26.42-37! and black cannot unit 26…10-14? 27.24-19! 13×24 28.23-18 12×34 29.39×10+. 26…13-18?? Rough strategical mistake. Stabilized position plan 26…10-14 27.45-40 13-18. 27.45-40?? Natalia does not react for kindly provided by rival chance. After simple and logical exchange 27.34-30 25×34 28.39×30 Kamyshleeva would be on the verge of strategical catastrophe, and most likely would not have been able to escape. 27…10-14. Though with the adventures of, but Olga equalized position. 28.42-37 06-11 29.37-31 08-13! Positionally strong move and simultaneously combinational provocation!

30.24-19?? Sadowska decided that opponent missed simple tactical idea. What a naivety! Hole on the “49” will return this combination against her. Of course it was prohibited and 30.48-42 or 30.40-35 because of 30…27-32 31.38×27 22-28+. But it was possible to combine, but in other way than in the game:  30.23-19 14×23 31.26-21 17×37 32.33-28 22×42 33.43-38 42×33 34.39×06 and a draw is the most likely result here. 30…13×24 31.34-30 25×45 32.44-40 45×34 33.39×10 27-32! That is the case! 34.38×27 20-24 35.29×20 18×49 36.27×18 15×24 37.10-05 12×23 38.05×46

After tumultuous events the game proceeded in absolutely winning endgame for Kamyshleeva, but having few seconds on the clocks, she was unable to fix the victory. 38…11-16?

Very unsuccessfully. The most quick won 38…17-22! Now white cannot attack 39.46-23 because of 39…04-09 40.23×01 02-07! 41.01×03 11-17 42.03×21 49×16, and after other white moves black push their piece “24” to kings. 39.46-28!
