Finals of the Ellen Kennedy Day Tournament
Early this morning, I thought I had posted my games in this tournament and was surprised that it was not recorded. Wonder why? Maybe I was too tired and did it incorrectly. So here it is again.
I am presenting two games that are similar. Look in particular for the well posted black knights (especially in 2nd game) and powerless white bishops. (Posted as .PGN . You can also click on the link.) 1. [Event "Ellen Kennedy"] [Date "2_17_07"] [Round "2"] [White "Davis James"] [Black "Marijan Procyk"] 1.Nf3 Nf6 2.g3 g6 3.Bg2 Bg7 4.O-O d5 5.d4 O-O 6.Nbd2 Ne4 7.e3 Bg4 8.h3 Bd7 9.Nxe4 dxe4 10.Ne5 f5 11.c4 Be6 12.b3 c6 13.Bb2 Qc7 14.Qc2 a5 15.Rac1 Na6 16.a3 Rad8 17.Rfd1 c5 18.Qb1 cxd4 19.exd4 Bxe5 20.dxe5 Nc5 21.Bd4 Nd3 22.Rxd3 exd3 23.Qb2 f4 24.Bd5 Qd7 25.Bb6 Bxd5 26.cxd5 Qxh3 27.gxf4 Qg4 28.Kf1 Qf3 29.Ke1 Rxd5 30.Be3 Rfd8 31.Kd2 Qe2 0-1 2. [Event "Ellen Kennedy"] [Date "2_17_07"] [Round "4"] [White "Demjanenko Stephen"] [Black "Marijan Procyk"] 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.exd5 cxd5 4.c4 Nf6 5.Nc3 e6 6.Nf3 Bb4 7.a3 Bxc3 8.bxc3 Ne4 9.Bb2 O-O 10.Bd3 f5 11.O-O Nc6 12.cxd5 exd5 13.c4 Be6 14.Qc2 Rc8 15.Rac1 Kh8 16.Qe2 Re8 17.Rfe1 Nd6 18.Ne5 dxc4 19.Bxc4 Bxc4 20.Qxc4 Nxe5 21.Qa4 Rxc1 22.Rxc1 Nd3 0-1

As a bonus, I am adding my game from the 3rd round. That was the second time in tournament play, that I used a "mysterious" rook move (10.Rc1). The first time was in Niagara Falls, Canada. It is interesting how my King was never in danger. I am sure that David and I will play more of these same variations in the future. 3. [Event "Ellen Kennedy"] [Date "2_17_07"] [Round "3"] [White "Marijan Procyk"] [Black "Biddle David"] 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 d5 4.cxd5 Nxd5 5.e4 Nxc3 6.bxc3 Bg7 7.Bc4 O-O 8.Be3 c5 9.Ne2 Nc6 10.Rc1 cxd4 11.cxd4 Qa5 12.Kf1 e6 13.h4 b6 14.g4 Bb7 15.h5 Rad8 16.hxg6 hxg6 17.f4 b5 18.Bb3 Qb6 19.Rc3 Na5 20.d5 Qd6 21.Bd4 Nxb3 22.axb3 exd5 23.e5 Qd7 24.Rch3 Qe6 25.Ng3 f5 26.gxf5 gxf5 27.Qh5 a5 28.Qh7 Kf7 29.Nxf5 Rg8 30.Rh6 Qc8 31.e6 1-0

All games look easy when I look at them right now, but it was very hard to play them.
Any comments?
