Josef Varosi Open 2013 Day 3 Report; Rd5 Game

Day 3
I finished with 4/6 in a nothing special result. My one forgetable game in rd3 exposed a hole in my repertoire and in the two draws I conceded, one I could have done better and the rd 6 game I have yet to review.

There were 13 2000+ players who took part which translates into 8-9 middle age guys trying to walk through a wall of juniors for three days. There were upsets every round and plenty on interesting games.

I was chatting with a chess friend after the tournament who made the following comment on my play,

'You have no style, you just play moves!...'

I won with white against young Forgacs,Andras(1448). Mark Medve beat Mester,A to get to 5-0. I lost a nice game to Medve in the Xmas open just a couple of months ago and he had gained about 100 FIDE points since then.

I drew with black against promising junior Varga,R in a long hard game. pressed with the bishop pair in a closed position but could not make anything happen. Varga already had 2.5/3 against FIDE 2000+ players so I was careful not to be the next victim.

I did not see how the Medve game turned out before I left.

Here is my rd5 game.

Josef Varosi Open (5), 17.03.2013

Position 1
The middlegame is going well for white. Black's king is exposed and white has an extra pawn. White's queen has just been attacked. What should white do about it?
