Jan 24th:  USCFWebsite Final standing for prizes and trophies: OPEN, Beginners; FamilyTEAM The prize ( the  magnetic Chess Set) for best game on Board #1 against our “House Chess Master” Leonid BONDAR goes to R3 player Temurbek SALOMOV. Leonid won first 3 rounds  against scholastic opponents,  and than make a draw in the Final 4th against Yakov STRELCHIN. If that is sound familiar , it is because this scenario had  repeated from the last ACC tourney on Dec.13th.  However, while all scholastic  opponents have again a negative differential of central pawn loss, according to Stockfish14 computer , but Yakov had  improved this game from the last month and was able to offer a draw from the position of strength. (R1=-23;R2:-29; R3:-16;R4=+6)  As always you can find ALL four round played on  the Board#1  in this LiChess study ACC23-01.

The 1st board action: The prize ( the  magnetic Chess Set) for best game on Board #1 against our “House Chess Master” Leonid BONDAR goes to Round 3 player Ragavendhar SUNILKUMAR,(best game by the player, who did not won the trophy or money prize).  Leonid won first 3 rounds (against scholastic opponents, under 14) and make a draw in the Final 4th against Yakov STRELCHIN. All his opponents have a negative differential of central pawn loss, according to Stockfish14 computer (R1=-23;R2:-39; R3:-17;R4=-1)  The last game was a draw in 15 moves, but it may be the most educational. It was a most played Roy-Lopez opening, with the Central fork and Black received a slightly worst position, with the last move Leonid could of  secure his victory, but 15.b3? was a mistake, realizing  that, Leonid had offered a DRAW. What was correct move and why, and what should be Black response to take advantage of 15.b3  …  and  to equalize position?  See the LiChess study here  LiChessACC22-10

The prize ( Book for chess notation) for best game on Board #1 against our “House Chess Master” Leonid BONDAR goes to Round 4 player: Howard DAI.  It very difficult to determine the best game, and if you would ask human players you may get 4 different answers, so we ask a computer analysis and count the difference in “center pawn loss” between Leonid and a contestant in each game. The lower number is better .  Check the LiChess study

 The Results are:

 R1: Yosef 43 – Leonid 17    difference  26

R2: Leonid 46- Colin  69    difference 23

R3: Sergiy 52 – Leonid 11    difference 41

Benchmark game between Fabiano CARUANA 47– Magnus CARSLEN 33 in 2020, the   difference 14  – We could not help to point out, that  stat here are showing  that ALL games on Board ONE were very close –  difference is close to the margins of error between #1 in the word Margnus CARLSEN and #2 Fabiano CARUANO.  ( the game was chosen for it educational ending, where Magnus (Black) use a Zugzwang maneuver to avoid a Stalemate)
