Interclubs round 7 report

Playing home against the three teams of Epicure, Europchess was able to bring home four important match points. On board one of Europchess 1, we had the pleasure to welcome back Timothy Binham from Finland. In a closed Sicilian, he gained an important space advantage with White against Eric van Hauthem who did not dare castling. Tim increased the pressure with active piece play and finally clinched the full point in the 3rd hour...

Round 5: Europchess keeps the pace In the last round before Christmas, Europchess 1 had to travel to Tournai, near the French border. Weakened by the absence of their first three players, the host team could not put up much resistance. On board 4, as usual, József Barta won the first game, this time with White. His opponent Lorant Liennard (1393) chose the Pirc defence, a risky choice against József in attacking mood. When...

Interclubs 3rd Round Results

Europchess 1: Tom played the black side of a Sicilian Defence. Both sides castled king-side, and White threw forward his f and g pawns. After playing f4, g4 and g5, however, he refrained from pursuing his attack further with f5 and f6. Instead he tried simply to hold the position (he offered a draw after his 19th move). Tom was able to exchange off an important defensive bishop, and then to create targets on...
