Here’s a quick report. One of the surprising favorites lost in Round 3. Bader Al Hajeri lost to Dennis Poliquit in a long battle that lasted 42 moves. After Dennis made his 42nd move, Bader was forced to resign. He was down too much material to continue.  Here is part of the game: 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5. 0-0 Nxe4 6. d4 b5 7. Bb3 d5 8. dxe Be6 9. Nbd2 Nc5 10. c3 Nd3 11. Qe2 Nc1 12. Rac1 Na4 13. Bc2 c5 14. a4 Qd7 15. Ng5 c4 16. f4 g6 17. f5 gxf 18. Bf5 Bf5 19. … SCORE SHEET UNCLEAR…

 During the game, Al Hajeri sacrificed a couple of pieces for a “winning” attack. He blundred near the end when he shielded his king on the f1 square instead of on the h1 square. His king was left too exposed in the middle of the board. Soon after the kinf move to f1, Al Hajeri’s attack extinguised and soon resigned. 

 Best of luck to all those who lost and Good luck to all for the next round.

 And of course, don’t forget to SMILE for the pictures 🙂
