Boomstra - Schwarzman 0-2
Boomstra - Schwarzman 0-2

Boomstra and Schwarzman played a beautiful game. 32.37-32(?) With this move white weakens his left wing, and ultimately this will cost him the game. On the World Draughts Forum Bart de Vos showed that   32.28-23! was a serious alternative, because 7-11? 33.16x7 12x1 34.23x12 8x17 fails due to the combination 35.47-41 36x47 36.37-31 26x37 37.35-30 24x35 38.38-32 37x28 39.33x11 47x24 40.11-7 1x12 41.34-30 25x34 42.39x17! W+   5-10 33.34-30 25x23 34.28x30 20-24 35.30x19 13x24 36.40-34 18-22 37.34-30 12-18 38.30x19 14x23 39.44-40(?) It is difficult to say exactly where Boomstra makes the final mistake. Now Schwarzman wins in a very convincing manner. 8-12! 40.35-30 A problem for white is that   40.33-29? 23x34 41.40x29 is not possible due to 36-41! 42.47x36 26-31 43.36x27 22x31 44.32-27 31x22 45.38-32 12-17! etc.   10-14 41.30-25 26-31 42.40-35 15-20 43.35-30 3-8 44.45-40 8-13 45.40-35 14-19 46.25x14 19x10 47.30-25 10-14 48.35-30 23-29 49.33x24 22-28 50.32x23 18x20 51.38-32 13-19
