Nied 3 narrowly misses sensation

At the start of the season, Nied 3 narrowly missed a sensational win against the nominally strongest team of the league. Unfortunately, half a point was missing at the close but the team could still celebrate coming away with a draw.

Boards 1 und 3: Christos und Volker won by default.

Board 5: Till won a piece early in the game from an inferior position thanks to an oversight by his opponent. He went on to convert his advantage and his opponent resigned when the loss of his queen was unavoidable

Board 7: Kurt was able to force an exchange of queens and accepted a draw offer by his nominally stronger opponent in an equal position.

Board 8: Against a nominally much stronger opponent, Lukas was not able to put up further resistance after the loss of a piece.

Board 6: After an unusual opening, Bjarne was able to win a pawn in the middlegame. However, as the pawn structure on his queenside became locked, he had to content himself with a draw.

Board 2: Fritz played a very long game of over 70 moves. After his opponent had missed a win, Fritz fought on and achieved a material advantage, with which he had to part again due to strong mating threats by his opponent. After the loss of two connected passed pawns in the endgame, his opponent could finally reach a won endgame of knight and pawn versus the blank king.

Nied 3 with surprising win against SV Hofheim 6

Thanks to a surprising 5,5:2,5, the third team overcame the all-female team SV Hofheim 6 in the third round of the saison.

The scoring was opened by Peter at board 8 by overcoming his young opponent as the nominal favourite. Two rooks on the f-file supported by two bishops and the queen exerted very strong pressure on the opponent's king side. After an error, the position could not be held anymore, even though the opponent continued to resist until mate was delivered.

Afterwards, Fritz and Bjarne won at boards 2 and 6.

Somewhat surprisingly, Kurt's opponent offered a draw just before the time control, which Kurt accepted immediately.

At board 5, Lam and his opponent agreed to a deserved draw in a locked position.

As the only sacrificial lamb of the day, Till had to part with a full point at board 4. A premature attempt to attack was cleverly parried by his opponent, resulting in her being a full piece up. Afterwards she routinely converted her advantage.

Volker's opponent at board 3 missed a combination forcing mate, whereas Christos had to content himself with a draw at board 1 despite having a material advantage.

Third team with narrow defeat against Flörsheim 3

In the third round, the third team fought to 3.5 points against the nominally equally strong opponents from Flörsheim.

The first full point was contributed by Lukas at board 8. Volker at board 3 managed to threaten mate such that it could only be parried by perpetually giving check. For one move however, this was not possible and so the opponent had to resign.

Bjarne at board 6 was confronted with the Scandinavian defense by his nominally weaker opponent Henry Ruppert. After the advance of his g- and h-pawns, Bjarne's attempts to put pressure on his opponent came to an end. A loss of a pawn was followed by the loss of an exchange and thus by a considerable material disadvantage.

At board 5 Lam's opponent was forced to give up a bishop for a dangerous passed pawn. Following this, Lam converted his material advantage in the endgame without any problems.

Kurt at board 7 had to endure considerable pressure, which he was able to negotiate successfully. The resulting queen ending was soon agreed drawn by the adversaries.

Nied 3 - Just two goals vs Bad Soden 3 are not enough

The uptrend did not materialize, as Nied 3 again loses with 3,5-4,5 again. Bjarne and Till were able to win their games, while Fritz, Lam and Kurt each contributed a draw.

Tills opponent at board 4 had initially managed to achieve a clear advantage due to a better pawn structure. An exchange of two minor pieces against rook and pawn fortunately put Till in a position to continue the game with bishop pair and rook against two rooks. At the close, Till found himself in an endgame a bishop up and was able to convert his advantage easily.

At board 2, a queen ending resulted with Fritz being a pawn up, which he wasn't able to convert. The opponent, six years Fritz's senior, was able to hold the position routinely.

Kurt a board 7 found himself at a material disadvantage after having lost a pawn. When Kurt offered a draw, the opponent accepted as this secured the victory for his team, holding the third team to 3,5 points.

After the winter break, Nied 3 unfortunately did not manage to secure an anticipated victory against the nominally slighly weaker guests from Steinbach (DWZ average: 1512 vs 1462). This let Nied 3 drop to the next-to-last rank of the table. A victory was out of reach in spite of the mobilization of the veterans Bernd Neudel and Dieter Rabe as substitute players.

Board 2: Distracted by his own mating attack, Volker did not pay sufficient attention to his opponent's threats and completely missed the loss of a bishop after the exchange of queens.

Board 6: Over its whole course, Kurt's game was even. In an equal position, draw was eventually agreed.

Board 3: Till could consider himself lucky that his opponent decided against winning a piece for fear a counterattack against his queen. Beside this incident, the game always remained close to even. Finally, a rook ending with several pawns was agreed drawn.

Board 4: Bjarne's opponent came out worse from an English opening. Bjarne was able to undermine his opponent's far-advanced centre and win a pawn on the queenside. Later, a mass exchange enabled him to pin the opposing knight to the edge of the board. However, after he eventually returned his extra pawn for more positional advantages, he found himself unable to convert his advantage to a full point.

Board 7: Bernd was contronted by a Closed Sicilian. After the exchange of several minor pieces, the position became dry and the game ended in a draw.

Board 8: Dieter was able to win a piece and routinely converted his material advanted into a win.

Board 1: Fritz had to resign at move 68 due to an unstoppable passed pawn.

Nied 3 loses to Steinbach 2

Nied 4 with 4-4 against SV Hofheim 5

The third team held SV Hofheim 5 to a 4-4 draw and maintain their chances to avoid relegation. Christos, Volker Till and Werner were able to win their games and thus made the team reach their goal of not losing against the second ranked team Hofheim 5.

After a very disavantageous pawn advance in the centre, Till lost the thread at board 4 to such an extent that a material loss was inevitable. Luckily, the opponent later missed a tactic resulting in the loss of a queen against a rook, after which his game was beyond rescue.

At board 1, Christos' opponent castled queenside and was forced into the defensive, from which he couldn't free himself anymore. It was just a matter of time until Christos scored the full point.

Bjarne was confronted by a French Defense at board 5. After an initial strategic concession, he was constantly pressured by his opponent and eventually, and attempt to free himself resulted in such a material loss that he was forced to resign.

Werner played a quiet French Defense at board 8. The opponent was trying to attack on the queenside but after a mass exchange of heavy pieces, Werner remained a pawn up and won.

Fritz at board 2 had got out of the opening well in an accepted Queen's Gambit. However, after a inaccuracy his opponent was able to simplify into a better endgame.

Kurt acted unluckily at board 6 - due to the awkward position of a pawn pinned to the queen, his opponent was able to win a piece, leaving Kurt with no chance to recover.

Dieter at board 7 missed a nice win in the endgame and unfortunately went on to lose.

Volker at board 3 forced a doubled pawn in front of his opponent's king, and even though the fight continued for quite some time, Volker's attack was eventually successful.

Nied 3 - Important victory against Sulzbach

Nied 3 eked out a 5-3 victory against SC Sulzbach and thus scored two points in an important relegation battle. The team reached their set goal and will now hopefully be able to stay afloat until the end of the season. Fritz, Till, and Lam were able to win their games, while Volker, Bjarne, Kurt and Wolfgang contributed draws.

Bjarne at board 6 came out of the opening very well and was able to apply strong pressure. This variation of the Bishop Game leads to a white advantage in the centre and on the kingside. However, the combination of questionable strategical decisions and the opponent's locking of the position lead Bjarne to attempt to break through on the queenside. This eventually led to an equal endgame of three pawns and bishop each, and thus a draw was agreed.

At board 8, Wolfgang did not easily acquiesce to a draw in an equal position. According to the goal of playing as long as possible without ending up worse, he fought on until the endgame, which then ended in a clearly drawn position and secured half a point for the team.

Lams opponent at board 5 blundered an important centre pawn in the opening, which Lam skillfully conquered by a maneouvre of his knight forking the opponent's bishop. Following this Lam had more central control and obtained a dangerous - later even two connected passed pawns. Finally, the opponent tried a counter attack on Lam's king, which ended in himself getting mated instead.

Till at board 4 managed to blow open the centre by a pawn advance on the flank and suddenly obtained a dangerous passed pawn as well as an aggressively posted knight. The opponent sacrificed the exchange for that knight after which the passed pawn became unstoppable and queened. Being faced by two queens against his one, the opponent had enough and resigned.

As the time passed, Fritz's position at board improved continuously until he won a piece against two pawns in his opponent's time trouble. Following this, the opponent resigned in a hopeless position. The game turned out to have been another instance of the bonmot of "he who makes the next-to-last mistake wins the game" (Savielly G. Tartakower, *Feb 21st 1887, Russian Empire; †Feb 5th 1956, Paris, France).

Due to blunder, Volker at board 2 could not convert his advantage and the game ended drawn.

At board 7, Kurt fought for a long time and displayed a huge will to win. The players eventually played until their was absolutely nothing left to be tried before a draw was finally agreed.
