    With 73 entries already received and only 6 rounds, Fide Baku Accelerated pairings should really be considered.

    Depends if any further evidence for it's efficacy in a Swiss of 6 rounds has been published. I refer to this thread... http://www.chesschat.org/showthread....irings-)/page3

    I made some puzzle books that were to go with the rating prizes for the tournament. During the first round someone's nicked them. If this was you and you've mistaken these for free samples please bring back tomorrow morning.

    Brady beats Fernandez!

    Congratulations to Aiden Brady [1836 Fide] for defeating GM Daniel Fernandez [2487 Fide] in the upset of the tournament. Fernandez is usually comfortable winning these endgames with technique, but here Aiden holds his nerve and it's the GM who stumbles.

    An excellent result for Aiden

    But I wonder why the GM didn't play 22 ... Qxe5 or 22 ... f4, both of which are completely winning? And then 53 ... Rxg3 is losing - 53 ... Re1! - but I assume that this would have been played in a time scramble. Although the idea of keeping a rook on the board if you're an exchange down is an important one.

    That position on Black's 22nd move looks like one of those where "everything wins". My guess is that Daniel must've seen f4, but was calculating something like 23.Qb5+ Kf8 24.Qxb7 Rxe3 25.Qxa8+ Kg7 and saw that it's winning, but in such a line it's easy to overlook something. Then he saw that he can liquidate to a winning endgame with Rxe3, but blundered something along the way. Again speculating, but 22...Rxe3?? 23.Qxe3 Qxe3 24.Rxe3 Bg5 25.Rg3! looks like something one could miss. Sometimes having too many winning moves can be confusing because you want to find the "cleanest" solution.

    Those are good points. Although 22 ... Qxe5 avoids the complications of 23.Qb5. And congratulations on your NVDG win - and beating Aiden!
