The Long And Winding Road To Triumph, Part I

Dirty Work

Tuesday March 15, 2011

 

“Like the castle in his corner in a medieval game, I forsee terrible trouble and I stay here just the same.”

(W. Becker, D. Fagen). 


I still love playing chess after 14 years, but getting out this website is becoming a bit of a chore.  In fact, I am about a month behind when I usually start my chess season, and I have to relearn everything I did  last year. 


So, to keep things simple, I have decided to start my new year with an article I wrote for the Colorado Chess Informant about my run to the Colorado Springs City Championship.  Hope you enjoy it!

 

Game Of The Week

 

It all started back in 1997.  Back when Elway couldn’t win the big game.  He was still the Fran Tarkenton of the modern NFL with three losses in three Super Bowls and 14 years invested in the pursuit.  In fact, his hopes were all but gone, with the NFC’s dominance of the AFC currently standing at 13 straight victories.  The main question was which AFC team was going to be that year’s sacrifice on the altar of the Packers return to glory. 

 

It was at that time I was playing in a championship of my own.  The Colorado Springs Chess Club was holding its annual October tradition, the city championship.  I had no plans on winning this event, as I had just started playing at the club earlier that year. 


In fact, I hadn’t even cracked the 1700 ratings barrier at the club yet.  I was just playing for fun and hoping to improve my game.  However, I went +3-1, tied for 2nd place, and my only loss was to the eventual champion.  Surprisingly, it seemed like I was knocking at the door of a championship.  My chances of winning a title were far greater than the Broncos.  I just needed to pick up that last game.

 

Well, that last game proved to be a thorn in my side.  Out of the 14 years I invested in this event, eight times I went +3-1.  Dan Avery, Buck Buchanan, and Jeff Fox were the biggest thorns, accounting for six of the eight close-but-no-cigar championship runs.

 

Year, Wins, Losses, Thorn, City Champion


1997, 3, 1, Dan Avery, Dan Avery

1998, 3, 1, Dan Avery, Dan Avery

1999, 3, 1, David Fisch, Jeff Fox

2000, 3, 1, Dan Avery, Dan Avery

2003, 3, 1, Andrew Chow, Buck Buchanan

2009, 3, 1, Jeff Fox, Jeff Fox


It is now 2010, and the Broncos stunning upset over the Packers in Super Bowl 32 and back-to-back titles are but a distant memory.  However, my title hopes have yet to be realized.  Now I am stuck with Fran and Jim on the bench of title-less players. 


The only consolation is that, after a long drought, I am back to only being one game away from the championship. In fact, 2009 is another time that my only loss was to the eventual champion (which happened to me 6 times). So, all I have to do is figure out how to beat that one guy.

 

I enter the 2010 Colorado Springs Chess Club Championship with the usual expectation of being able to do well, just not perfect, and falling a game short of title contention. It is a strong showing of players for the club, which puts me in the 4th seed.  In the past, I have been as high as the top seed, but typically I am in the middle of the pack, like this year, as this is the one club event that seems to draw out some of the higher-rated players in the city.  Being the top seed has been a curse the past 5 years, as it has been since NM Josh Bloomer won the title in 2005 that the highest-rated player has been able to take home the crown.

 

I draw Peter Swan in the first round on board 4.  He is a newcomer to the club.  So, we haven’t played before.  I choose something safe and comfortable for me and wait to see what kind of mistakes I get. I think that 11…e4 just drops a pawn and do not put much thought into a response.  It turns out he is not bad after 13…Ne5, which is where he wanted the knight when he started the sacrifice.  However, without the rook and bishop, the fork tactic is easily avoided and leaves Peter with too little force to overcome his material disadvantage.
