Otago doing ok!

Round 5 was mixed for the Otago contingent. I won against Brian Nijman when he blundered a critical pawn with check in what was otherwise a dynamically balanced position - He culd have forced an exchange sac from me, but it didn't look more than sufficient compensation.
Hamish won a queen for rook and bishop against Joachim Berg-Jensen, but couldn't find a way to activate his queen and remaining rook, so lost. sacrificing his two pieces for Black's active rook might have been the way to play it with queen and rook vs 3 pieces and rook - but Whites heavy artillery gets out on to the board and creates threats before Black can get developed. I didn't see how Leighton's game went - but I'm sure he will score well in this event after recent club results.

Indeed, a powerful performance by Dive. You seemed to be doing OK against him though.

Yeah, he slipped in the opening with 12 Rb1 allowing me to get in 14...e4. Then after the exchanges I had too many good options to choose between on move 18. Russell saw the pawn sac 18... Qxc2 19 Rxc2 d3! clearing d4 with the knight with a significant endgame plus to Black, but I missed it. The other move I was decding over was 18... b6!? to control c5, when 19 Nd3 Qf5! 20 Kg2 Re4 21 Bf4 Rd8! looks great or Black who will build up an irresistable attack on the kingside, but here 19 Qxe4 instead of Nd3 is somewhat safer for White, though Black is still better. The computer liked 18... Qe6, which I also looked at, simply avoiding the queen exchange and playing for a similar attack. The move I played 18...f5 was also designed to avoid the queen exchange and perhaps play a future f5-f4 while retaining the queen on a strong square. The problem was it had a slight cramping effect on my queen which was fatal after 19 c5 Be5?? 20 f3! I had stopped calculating the continuation after the queen got to a1 thinking it looked pretty safe as a3 was attacked - one move short!:doh: Instead 19... Be7 is still fine for Black. Shame to waste a good position against such a strong player - though it's not the first time....
