    George Trundle Masters 2019

    George Trundle Masters 2019 crosstable by score

    Games (I can't get the viewer to work, but the downloads are fine).

    To get the ball rolling on the tournament games:

    [Date "2019.01.07"]
    [Round "5"]
    [White "Izzat, Kanan"]
    [Black "Johansen, Darryl K"]
    [Result "0-1"]
    [WhiteELO "2495"]
    [BlackELO "2345"]

    Devastating attack by the veteran GM:

    [White "Papin, Vasily"]
    [Black "Smith, Robert W"]
    [Result "1-0"]
    [WhiteELO "2491"]
    [BlackELO "2233"]
    [WhiteFideId "4143183"]
    [BlackFideId "4300190"]
    [PlyCount "0"]
    A quick win by visiting GM:

    having a quick look at the Izzat - Johansen -16.Bxa5 looks solid for white.

    Interesting P endgame:

    [Event "George Trundle Masters 2019"]
    [Site "Auckland NZL"]
    [Date "2019.01.09"]
    [Round "7"]
    [White "Izzat, Kanan"]
    [Black "Smith, Robert W"]
    [Result "1-0"]
    [WhiteElo "2495"]
    [BlackElo "2233"]

    PGN Viewer
     

    Good win by the leader, who increased his lead to a full point, and needs only 0.5/2 for an IM norm:

    [Event "George Trundle Masters 2019"]
    [Site "Auckland NZL"]
    [Date "2019.01.09"]
    [Round "7"]
    [White "Clarke, Brandon G I"]
    [Black "Garbett, Paul Anthony"]
    [Result "1-0"]
    [WhiteElo "2400"]
    [BlackElo "2160"]

    PGN Viewer
     

    Black was in trouble right after the opening, especially with the unforced error of 14... g6:

    [Event "George Trundle Masters 2019"]
    [Site "Auckland NZL"]
    [Date "2019.01.09"]
    [Round "7"]
    [White "Johansen, Darryl K"]
    [Black "Watson, Bruce R"]
    [Result "1-0"]
    [WhiteElo "2345"]
    [BlackElo "2278"]
