Junior Speed Chess: Xiong Beats Gledura In Overtime

Junior Speed Chess: Xiong Beats Gledura In Overtime


When the match clock had run down to zero the score was tied, but then Jeffery Xiong won in overtime vs. Benjamin Gledura in Tuesday’s Junior Speed Chess Championship quarterfinal match. Xiong will play Parham Maghsoodloo next.

“Throughout the match there were moments when I felt Jeffery is the stronger player in this format,” said the guest commentator Anish Giri. “He converted much more powerfully, he defended more skilfully. But somehow the score is equal!”

 

This was how Giri recapped things at the end of the bullet segment, when 13.5-13.5 was on the scoreboard. As the slight underdog, the Gledura had come back from a four-point deficit and somehow managed to hold his own.

However, whereas he had beaten Awonder Liang 3-0 in a playoff in the round of 16 (that match had also ended level at the end of regulation), this time Gledura lost 3-0 in the playoff.

SmarterChess was right that Xiong would win, but wrong in the margin.

“A mérkőzés során a pillanatok voltak, amikor úgy éreztem, Jeffery az erősebb játékos ebben a formátumban,” mondta Anish Giri vendég kommentátor. “Sokkal erőteljesebben átalakult, jobban védekezett, de valamilyen módon egyenlő!”

 Igaza lehet Girinek, de néhány dolgot érdemes látni,és ezt nem Gledura védelmében mondom. Ezek a villám partik tényleg csak a pillanatokon múlnak.
Bendzsi jelllemzően egy nyugodt habitusu sakkozó és nem az óracsáp sakkozó. Azt sem árt tudni, hogy ezeket a tornákat a chesscom szórakoztatásnak szánja a portál és látogatók csalogatónak.
