Round 4 of the Arab Elite Chess Championship 2011: 3 players share the lead, Fadi drew with AlModiahki

Who’s attacking who? It is the typical question where a lot of spectors were asking themselves when watching the board 1 game between the 2 young arab Grandmasters Ahmad Adly (White) and Salem AbdelRahman. Salem tried to get profit from Ahmad’s king in the center, opened lines and ranks for his rooks, diagonals for his bishops. But Ahmad defended very well and won a pawn. When Salem exchanged queens, his rook infiltrated to Ahmad’s 2nd rank. Again a heroic defense and exchange of the invader were 2 of the elements of Ahmad’ strategy.

A few inaccuracies from Salem enabled Ahmad to win another pawn, and the only way for Black to stop 2 white passed pawns from promoting was: to resign.

This win over Salem enabled Adly to share the lead with him. And not to let them feel lonely, Sami Khader joined them by beating, using the Black pieces Zendan Zendani. The later, in order to secure his king, sacrificed the exchange, entered en ending where he succeeded in forming a fortress. But time trouble was looming, and a mistake by White enabled Black to create a passed pawn on the queen side, which was more than enough for Sami to collect the point.

A solid defense was the title of the strategy adopted by Fadi Eid, as Black, when facing the Reti Opening of the GM Mohamad ElModiahki. A very interesting Black setup was on board: a double fianchetto , a counter-play on the queen side to shake a little bit the balance of White and finally some exchanges , to reach an opposite color bishops and the peace agreement was signed.

The peace was also signed on board 4 between Mohamad Tisir (White) and  Atallah Tamra. But the final position was wining for Black!! Even before the final move, it was also winning:

A passed pawn on the white 2nd rank, plus a rook there , are more than enough to win. White played here 38 Qe4, and Black replied with 38..Qb2 (Rxg2 wins more quickly) 39 Qe1 Qd4 40 Qg3 Qd3 (again Rxg2 wins) to reach the final position:

After 49 Qd8+ Kh7 50 Qf6 Rh1+! 51 KxR c1=Q+ 52 Kh2 Qc7 extra queen is an extra queen.

Board 5 game was a one-side game, where Hussein Ayyad (White) played very aggressively against Badr elHageri  uncastled king, where the former dominated the dark squares around the Black king. The final position deserves a diagram:

The Black king will be mated soon. I will let you calculate in how many moves. Black resigned.

Board 6 witnessed another attacking game. Kamel Nijli , as White, concentrated all his forces on the king side of Rashid Yaqoub, where the later succumbed at the end:  a mate was threatening and  a loss of material was inevitable to avoid it.

A strong defense by Samir Mohamad, as Black, was adopted against Sabar Daouda. The later tried to attack, but in vain. Samir collected 3 pawns which were more than enough to force Daouda to resign.
