Championship of Catalonia: Final selection of games

We conclude our coverage of the Championship of Catalonia with three noteworthy games. Sr. González and Sr. Durán engaged in a long and hard-fought battle whose concluding phase featured multiple reversals of fortune. We join the contest after Black's 52nd move, and invite the reader to follow its many vicissitudes in the notes:

Sr. Valle, as second player in a French Defense, withstood the efforts by Sr. Martino to mount a King-side attack and then turned the tables on his adversary, forcing checkmate via a Queen sacrifice:

In our final offering, Sr. Bertrán displays excellent technique against 2nd-place finisher Sr. Lafuente to win a delicate endgame.
