Malaysia beats Turkey 4-0

As I predicted, our boys won their games very comfortably. The best game was played by Eng Chiam. In a middle-game with opposite coloured bishops and major pieces middle-game, he made two line clearing sacrifices to conjure up an attack against the black king.

Yeap Eng Chiam - G.N. Guney

From the diagram, Eng Chiam sac a pawn for attack.

27.c6! bxc6 28. Qh5+  Kf8 29. Rad1 Qc8 30. Rxd8 Qxd8 31. Rd1 Qc8 32. f5! 

A second line opening pawn sac finishes the game.

32...Bxf5 33. Bh6+ Rg7 34. Rf1 Bg4

34...e6 35. g4  Bh7 36. Rxf6+ Kg8 37. Bxg7 Kxg7 38.Rf7 wins.

35. Qg6 Bf3+ 36. Rxf3 exf3 37. Bxg7 and black resigns.

Should be on a text book under the topic "Line Clearance". Very instructive!!
