Rounds 3 & 4 of the Christmas Soviet alumni Open 2012

Clashes continue on top boards

After beating Ibrahim Chahrour in round 3, Ahmad Najjar hd to face another Lebanese championship finalist, the dangerous Bassel Sharaf. It seems that the Modern Defense is on its trend, as Najjar  used it to beat Bassel, who found himself a piece down after a dozen of moves! Although the King’s Indian formation appeared on the board, with Najjar ‘s Indian bishop locked in, he succeeded in breaking Bassel’s position through the king side.

In the meantime, Tarek Moudallal is separated from the leaders, Ahmad Najjar and Marwan Nassar, with just half point, while Ibrahim Shahrour couldn’t break the French defense adopted by the solid Marwan Sharbel, though the final position contained some possibilities for adventurous play.

In round 5, All the eyes will focus on the top board meeting between Ahmad Najjar and Marwan Nassar, who, the later, succeeded, in his round 4 encounter with the young Daniel Kobeissi in his attack on Daniel’s king even after both of them adopted the long castling!
