When you play for the "bacon"

by P.Leisebein (Leipzig)

 

I played the following game with black in the final of a BDG tournament (organised by the SC Blankenberg) .

My opponent was the strong Russian W. Ivanov. I played my pet defence and because my opponent chose the Vorpostenvariante

I was pretty happy in the opening. The opening and endgame were very interesting and were conducted in a very tight fashion!

This tournament I could win unchallenged!

The strong move 8. ...Nc6! makes the white moves questionable!

 

 

 

(48) Ivanov,W - Leisebein,P [D00]

BDG-TT(Finale), 2000
