If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

A review of the games

Concluded the Fifth round:

the Blitz tournament is championed by Omega. Congratulations Omega (ujeqaf).

At this point, with only one round missing in December, the table of positions of the Blitz tournament can't be altered by any result. IH-COL can't accumulate enough point to reach Omega, and Jwocky can't accumulate enough points to reach IH-COL. The blitz tournament will end with the ranks: Omega(1), IH-COL(2), and JWocky(3). The games, nonetheless are expected to be played on the second Saturday on December 2017 for the Blitz tournament Clausure.

The Standard tournament is headed at a 4 - 1 draw by IH-COL and JWocky.

IH-COL is expected to take the left-point, since SHM abandoned the tournament before the first move. While Keith is currently in a position unable to reach the headers, the game Keith (W) - JWocky (B) to be played on December 2017, offers an interesting positions. A draw, or a win by Keith will make IH-COL champion of the Standard tournament, but a win by JWocky will force an end-draw, and games to be followed to determine the Championship on the second Sunday of December 2017!

A summary of the 5th round games below:

BLITZ

JWocky (W) - (B) IAHM-COL (JWocky checkmated)
http://ficsgames.org/cgi-bin/show.cgi?ID=418057503
Image

Code: Select all

23. Qxe3+?? IAHM-COL comments; misses mate in 23.Qd1#
IAHM-COL comments: 27...Bf5?? It blunders my Bishop, yet 28. Re7 does not penalize
31.Qh4+?? (Better was 31.Qg3+) IAHM-COL comments, it blunders my Queen, but once again; 32. Kd1 does not penalize
IAHM-COL comments: 35...Rc8! Possibly a resigning point?



Omega (ujeqaf) (W) - (B) IAHM-COL (IAHM-COL checkmated)
http://ficsgames.org/cgi-bin/show.cgi?ID=418057999
Image

Code: Select all

16...0-0-0?!; Omega Comments:  15. Qf3 blunders my Knight. He actually meant 16. Qe2 blunders my Knight
21...Nf4; Omega Comments: 21...Nxb4 was better
27...bxc6; IAHM-COL Comments. Sacrificing the Queen with Qd8 may extend the game, and prevent the excellent move 28.Ba6!! That should have been the resignation point.


Due to a delay by Omega -- again!! --, the first Blitz game was played deferred after Standard games concluded.

JWocky (W) - (B) Omega (JWocky checkmated)
http://ficsgames.org/cgi-bin/show.cgi?ID=418058650
Image

Code: Select all

13.Qf3??; IAHM-COL comments: 13. better was exd5
20. Qh3??; IAHM-COL comments: Blunders the Queen
26. Nxd3??; IAHM-COL comments; Misses the 26.Qxg2# mate that ensues.
At checkmating JWocky here, Omega takes the crown of the first FACCT, Blitz edition.


STANDARD

IAHM-COL(W) - (B) KeithHadden (Keith Checkmated)
http://ficsgames.org/cgi-bin/show.cgi?ID=418058309
Image

Code: Select all

3... Nf6?? IAHM-COL comments: It calls for dxe5, challenging a pin of both Bishop and Knigth, just located in f6
6... 0-0?? IAHM-COL comments: Abandons Knight on e4, while allowing Queen to take such central position, and challenge h7
8. Bd3!; IAHM-COL comments: White challenges immediate mate Qxh7. Some variant defenses shown in the pgn in the games database.
8... Qe7?? Endgame. IAHM-COL comments: This was possibly and intent to pin the Knight on e5, but it's game over since 9. Qxh7#. 8...g6, or 8...f5 could have been considered. Variants and alternatives for Black defense in the pgn in the games database.

9. Qxh7#. Keith Comments: That did not take that long. Did it?


Best,
IH-COL
