Final round of the 42nd Lebanese individual Chess Championship 2016

Faisal Khairallah – Champion of Lebanon without compromise


And he did it for the 8th time. He even didn’t play for a draw against Mohamad Habash, but he won convincingly, and with the black pieces.

The game between Amr ElJawish and Gen, Hassan Jouni was a one side game. Gen. Jouni mishandled his opening, kept his king for a longer time than necessary. It wasn’t for Amr to find the weak spot in his opponent’s position, to win a pawn, then a second one. The blunder by Black that would cause the loss of his queen, ended Black’ suffer.

Another one side game is the encounter between Mohamad Farhat and Antoine Kassis. Antoine adopted the Old Indian defense, which has a shocking effect on Mohamad, as Antoine had a free hand for his play on the king side without any worry on the other side of the board. With all the black pieces gathered over the head of the white king, netting a pawn and soon an exchange, and may be more, was enough reason for White to stop the clock.

The surprise weapon of Tarek Moudallal, the King’s Gambit, had the desired effect on his young opponent, Giorgio Kaloust. Although the later somewhat escaped the opening without any damage, the pressure in the middle game exerted by Tarek couldn’t pass by smoothly. Tarek’s combination executed against the black king resulted in winning a black rook, and the game point. But this didn’t prevent Giorgio to add 78 points to his Elo!

A very complicated game was on the schedule between Mahdi Kaouri and AbdelAziz ElMahmoud. An imaginative sacrifice of pawn by AbdelAziz offered him a strong initiative, forcing Mhadi to defend closely. For several moves the advantage was passing from one side to another, even at a certain moment it was unclear to define whom is attacking whom. The resulting ending game was still interesting and played with imagination by both players. Although AbdelAziz hold a slight initiative in that phase, but the liquidation initiated by Mahdi resulted in a drawn rook endgame position. The split of the point was a fair result.
