My games at AQE Minorities in Criminal Justice July 2007

I had promised to put my games from the July 14th tournament "AQE-July-Minorities-in-Criminal-Justice" on our website, so here they are! In so doing, I am hoping for some comments. What mistakes were made? Was there something better at some point?
Thanks again to "The Chess Ambassador" Mr. McDuffie for arranging and directing this event. The full cross table for this tournament can be found at:
1. Westcott Glen - Marijan Procyk (Time trouble. At the end I lost on time, but since black had K+R+P against K white had no winning material and that is draw.) 1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.e3 Bg4 4.Be2 e6 5.O-O Bd6 6.Nbd2 O-O 7.c3 Nbd7 8.Qc2 c5 9.e4 dxe4 10.Nxe4 Bf5 11.Bd3 Nxe4 12.Bxe4 Bxe4 13.Qxe4 Qc7 14.Bg5 Rfe8 15.Rac1 f6 16.Bh4 Rad8 17.Bg3 Bxg3 18.hxg3 c4 19.Rfe1 b5 20.Re2 Re7 21.Rce1 Rde8 22.Qf4 Qa5 23.Qd6 Nf8 24.a3 Rd7 25.Qc6 Red8 26.Qe4 Qb6 27.Nd2 e5 28.Nf3 exd4 29.Nxd4 a5 30.Qf3 Ng6 31.Qf5 Ne5 32.Rxe5 fxe5 33.Rxe5 b4 34.axb4 axb4 35.Rb5 Qh6 1/2 2. Marijan Procyk - Bob S. Shao 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 b6 4.g3 Ba6 5.Qc2 c5 6.Bg2 Bb7 7.O-O cxd4 8.Rd1 Bc5 9.Nxd4 Bxg2 10.Kxg2 Bxd4 11.Rxd4 Nc6 12.Rd1 O-O 13.Bg5 Nb8 14.Nc3 h6 15.Bxf6 Qxf6 16.Qe4 Nc6 17.Rxd7 Ne5 18.Rd2 Rfd8 19.Rad1 Ng6 20.Rd7 Nf8 21.R7d3 Qe7 22.Nd5 Qg5 23.f4 1-0 3. Mark J Clark (2095) - Marijan Procyk ( Again I was in time trouble but I was able to hold on and white resigned in a lost position. This was a very tough game.) 1.e4 c6 2.f4 e5 3.Nf3 exf4 4.d4 g5 5.Bc4 d5 6.exd5 cxd5 7.Bb5 Nc6 8.O-O Be6 9.Ne5 Qc7 10.Nd2 Bd6 11.Ndf3 h6 12.c3 Nf6 13.Qa4 Bd7 14.Nxd7 Nxd7 15.Re1 Kf8 16.Qb3 Nf6 17.Bd2 Na5 18.Qc2 Ne4 19.Rad1 f5 20.b3 Rc8 21.Rc1 a6 22.Bf1 Kg7 23.Qd3 b5 24.Rc2 Qd8 25.Bc1 g4 26.Ne5 Bxe5 27.dxe5 Qb6 28.Kh1 Rxc3 29.Qxc3 Nxc3 30.Rxc3 Qf2 31.Rd1 Re8 32.Rcd3 Qxa2 33.Bxf4 Nxb3 34.Rxd5 Re7 35.Bd3 Nd2 36.Rd6 Ne4 37.Bxe4 fxe4 38.R6d2 Qe6 39.g3 Qc6 40.Kg1 b4 0-1 4. Marijan Procyk - Thomas Warner (Black's 8th move was premature. Castling was in order. White was confused by 12.a4 but was that a bad move?) 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.f4 c5 6.d5 b5 7.cxb5 a6 8.Nf3 Qa5 9.Bd2 Nbd7 10.Be2 axb5 11.Bxb5 Ba6 12.a4 O-O 13.e5 dxe5 14.fxe5 Ng4 15.Bxd7 Qc7 16.Bxg4 1-0


  1. Marjan- I think I would be OK after 12....Bxb5 13.Nxb5 Qb6. Do you think so? tom

  2. 14.Bc3 0-0 15.Nd2 Qb7 16.0-0 Nb6 17.b3 to secure queen side. White has more active position and soon will start attacking on the king side.

  3. Very nice games-interesting variety. Well played by both sides. JD
