FMs ZIN & STAMNOV ANNOTATED GAME

 

 

Aung, Zin - Stamnov

Knight Quest 54, Scotch Four Knights

Annotate by Aung Zin FM, FI

 

This is my first appearance at Knight Quest tournament.  I could see many young talented players at the tournament. Some may be future grand master. Here is my game against Master Stamnov.

 

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3  Nf6

I don’t want to play Russian defense, I chose four knights game or Scotch.

 

3.Nc3 Nc6 4.d4 Scotch.

Bd2 is also playable. But I want to keep the bishop pin.

I guess his plan is Bc8, 29. Ne7 also playable.

 [29.Ne7 Bb7 30.Qd8+ Kg7 31.Qg8+ Kh6+-]

                                                                 

29...Bc8

Expected move, now I can do trading his queen with my knight and rook. But I need to calculate  the position, queen against rook , bishop and powerful d passed pawn. Finally I could figure out Qf8 check .
