Arab Individual Championship – Dubai 2021

Round 5 morning clashes: A perfect game by Akram Khoder

No one wants to play slow and patient game. Everyone wants to attack and try to collect a win in order to improve his position in the intermediate ranking before the start of the second half of the championship.

Watching live the Akram game against the Emirati IM Omran El Hosani, I was surprised that they played 16 (!!) theoretical moves of the Fianchetto Grunfeld, when Akram, instead of exchanging the queens, invented the 17.Bf4, showing his fighting spirit, putting a tough question to his opponent: What you want to do? What follows was like magic: Black, it seems, has a wide choice of moves, but most of them, if not all, would lead to white’s advantage. The inferior move chosen by Black enabled Akram to play a zero-mistake moves. His 31st move, (Bc1!!) crowned his dark squares strategy. With the presence of queens and opposite colors bishops, Akram didn’t let the Emirati king getting some rest until the later was forced the exchange off the queens, reaching an opposite-color bishops ending, which the Lebanese player converted splendidly to full point. A deserved win for Akram.

The Trompowsky opening adopted by Faisal, as White, against his Libyan opponent Ali Elier, resulted in a winning advantage for the former after just a dozen moves. One slip on move 17 evaporated his advantage. The issuing highly complicated middle game witnessed the contenders trying to attract  the initiative for his side. The resulting complications favored the Lybyan player. Exchange down, Faisal tried to find salvation in the ending, but in vain.

Amr adopted his beloved King’s Indian defense against the Emirati FM Moussa Othman (not the Emirati GM Othman Moussa). Amr’s choice of moves aimed to complicate the middle game stage as much as possible. But his opponent was on alert, and with his zwischenzug (in-between) moves obtained even the advantage, then, due to a miscalculation, handled it to Amr. The later obtained a winning position which, in order to crown it, he needed to find the extraordinary and beautiful sacrifice (29…Rxg4!!). Although the move played by him didn’t let the advantage slip away, the subsequent inferior moves were enough for his opponent to get profit from them, and share the game point.

Maya’s game against the Tunisian WFM Amen Miladi has a tragic conclusion. After a complicated Sicilian middle game, Maya, playing the black side, was up to the task, won a pawn, and obtaining winning chances. Amen tried to complicate the position to her Lebanese opponent as much as possible. And she succeeded as, due to time trouble, Maya made a sequence of weak moves and a couple of blunders that turned the table, resulting in letting the Tunisian player collecting the point.
