Arab Individual Championship – Dubai 2021 Round 8

Round 8: Miscalculation everywhere


If you have a weak heart, please take a pill do reduce the horror and panic before scrolling down the games moves.

I will be short in words as much as possible so the pill can take effect.

Akram, playing White against the Algerian FM Ilias Saim Mohamed, profited from his opponent’s imprecise opening move, and won the latter’s queen for 2 minor pieces. All what was required was to adjust to the new situation, consolidate his position and extinguish his opponent’s activity. Instead, a mistaken move, followed by several ones of same type gave the Algerian player a winning position and the game point.

Nearly the same scenario occurred in Maya’s game against the Palestinian Eman sawan. Maya obtained a nice advantage in the opening, to lose it later and gave her opponent a lot of counter play. Then due to imprecise moves by Eman, Maya had some advantage in the endgame. A blunder caused her to lose the game point.

Amr obtained early in the opening a very advantageous position, not to say a winning one against the Libyan FM Mohamed Elarabi Abobker.  Imprecise moves by the former gave the Libyan player a dangerous counter play where he could force a draw. Instead, being ambitious to win against Amr, Mohamed committed a blunder, and you don’t want to ask Amr twice. Amr collected a valuable point which is important to the standing before the last round:

As you guessed, the last round will be played on Friday, as today, Thursday, there will be the Rapid championship.

The preparation for the final round is of high importance, as, in order to see Amr on the podium, Sami Khader, Bashir Eiti and Amr must win over their corresponding opponents.

BTW, Faisal didn’t play in this round as he got a (Bye).
