Reykjavik Open 2013 Rd7-IM Hambleton(CAN)

Hambleton had the early advantage but then black had the upper hand before peace was agreed with RRN vs Q in a hugely complicated fight.

Hambleton,Aman (2472) - Norowitz,Yaacov (2432) 
Queen’s Gambit Declined[D31]
Reykjavík Open 2013 (7.6), 24.02.2013

Position 1
The position is complicated. White has a mobile mass of kingside/central pawns while black's is not yet castled. What do you suggest for white?

  • 22.f5(cash in right away while black in uncastled)
  • 22.Rhf1(complete mobilization first as black is not safe castling on either wing)
  • Something else
White to Play


Position 2
Black has 4 pawns for a rook and is on the attack. How should black continue?

Black to Play
