Round 8 of the Arab Elite Championship 2011: Salem sole leader, and a strong come-back from Fadi

The only drawn game of the 8th round of the Elite championship was enough to affect the standing at the top rank before the ultimate round. While Salem AbdelRahman , playing on the Black side of the first board against Samir Mohamed, was winning in adopting his usual weapon Grunfeld Defense, Ahmad Adly (Black) was trying very hard to score the full point in a double-rooks ending against Kamel Njili.All Adly’s efforts were in vain as Kamel defended well, forcing peace agreement.

Is there a way you can use to beat the 20th century best arab player, Mohamed AlModiahki, especially if he is playing on the White side? Answer: No way!! On the 3rd board, Mohamed conaducted his game with a strong positional play, reaching an ending with a strong night posted in the heart of the Black position of Zendan Zendani, to be crowned by an exchange sacrifice. And the only way for Zendan to prevent the appearing of a new white queen is to sacrifice his rook for that pawn, and resign a few moves later.

A very nice game was played by Fadi Eid, as Black, on the 4th board against Hussein Ayyad. Fadi played his strong weapon, the Scnadinave defense, to reach a typical middle game with a strong knight on c5, centralized rooks and Queen, not to mention the bishop. Even an exchange sacrifice by Hussein couldn’t hold Fadi’s attack, who replied by a counter-exchange sacrifice, smashing the White’s king protection. White resigned when the mat was unavoidable.

While Atallah Tamra couldn’t hold the 2 white passed pawns of Rashid yaqoube on board 5, Sami Khader, as Black, played very aggressively on board 6 against Badr ElJagery, whose king was under attack very early. And to avoid more losses, he had to resign, as Sami remained with a knight ahead.

The last board shows how the Grand Prix Attack has to be played through the hans of Mohamed Tisir against Ousmane Daouda. You got the feeling that Mohamed is taking his revenge for his poor show on the previous rounds. Attack Attack and nothing else than the Attack. And the point is in the hand.
