WHAT IS DEMENTIA?

- ALEX DAVIDOVIC

There are many types of dementia, with Alzheimer’s disease being the most common. Vascular dementia, dementia with Lewybodies, alcoholrel­ated dementia and subcortica­l dementia account for the vast majority of other cases.

Memory loss is not always the first symptom or most prominent symptom of dementia. Symptoms depend on the location of the underlying damage.

Dementia may cause a number of behavioura­l and psychologi­cal symptoms.

In Australia in 2020, there are an estimated 28,000 with early-onset dementia (under 65 years) – about

4-5 per cent of all cases.

Grandmaste­r Temur Kuybokarov (WA) was awardedthe Steiner Medal as Australian Player of the Year 2020.

Born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Kuybokarov is the first grandmaste­r to settle in Western Australia. In 2020, he won the Australian Open in Sydney, was the highest-scoring Australian in the FIDE Online Olympiad and was a member of the winning Australian team in the Asian Online Nations Cup.

At 20 years of age and rated 2530 in the latest FIDE list, Kuybokarov is one of the most promising young Australian players.

In today’s game from the fourth round of the 2020 Australian Championsh­ip in Sydney, Kuybokarov was black against another young star, Junta Ikeda.

Ikeda opted for the reversed Benoni Opening, but failed to make use of an extra move. Kuybokarov met White’s dubious Bc1-d2-b4 manoeuvre by cleverly reposition­ing the knight with Nd7-b8-a6, and quickly seized the initiative.

Blocked on the queenside, White made the unfortunat­e decision to open up the kingside, which only helped Kuybokarov to mount a decisive attack.
