I think it is accurate to this point. I don't really understand the last move g6. Susposeably Qd5 was the next move and Black responded with Qxb5. Mike or Peter if you want to email me the corrections I will fix it. Black goes on to win.

Round 3


Comments by Laszlo
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.c3 d6 3... Nf6 4. d4 exd4 5. e5 slightly favors White. So does the actual game move:
4.Bb5 a6 5.Bxc6+ bxc6 6.d4 exd4 Black plays tactical, while I try to be more strategic. I expected a more traditional choice: 6... Nf6 7. Qc2 Nd7 8. O-O
7.cxd4 Bg4 8.Qd3 I spent about 10 min on the above move. Also considered the more developing 8. Nbd2 However, I did not like my Queen's position after 8...Nf6 9.Qe2 Best would have been 8. 0-0 Nf6 9.Re1
8...Be7 9.O-O Qd7 10.b3 to answer the coming 10. ... Nf6 with Fianchetto. 10. Re1 or 10. Bf4 may have been more solid, to prepare e5 push.
10...Bf6 11.Nbd2 Again, 11.Re1 may have been better, at least more annoying with the Rook facing the opponent's uncastled King, with a pushable Pawn in between. 11...Ne7 12.e5 dxe5 13.Nxe5 Bxe5 14.Rxe5+-
11...Ne7 12.Bb2 O-O 13.Ne1 My first weak move in the game. Not a blunder but a simple 13.h3 would have maintain my positional advantage. I think that Pete suspected a trap and spent 20 min to make
13...c5 which wasn't the best move. Fatigue on both sides? We ran out of our coffe in Starbucks... With the better alternatives 13...Rfe8 14.f4 c5 or 13...g6 14.h3 Be6 White still has a slight edge, though.
14.f4 Immediate 14.e5! Bg5 15.Ne4 Bf4 16.exd6 c4 17.bxc4 cxd6
14...Nc6 It took three passive moves for the Black Knight to get into the game. The bad news is that from now I should have paid more attention to this horse. 14...Bxd4+ 15.Bxd4 cxd4 16.h3=
15.e5 I should have done this one move earlier or one move later. Again, the simple 15.h3 Bh5 16.e5 Be7 17.dxc5 Nb4 18.Qc3+-
15...dxe5 15...Be7!? 16.d5 Nb4= would have leveled the field.
16.dxe5 Qxd3 17.Nxd3 Be7 18.Ne4 My first blunder. One of the Knights has to leave the d file, to avoid the threat Rd8. But to here? 18.Nf2 Be6 19.Nfe4
18...Be2 19.Rfc1 My second blunder in a row. 19.Ndxc5 and White is still in the game despite of being an exchange down: 19...Bxf1 20.Kxf1=
19...Bxd3 20.Nxc5 Bf5 21.Kf2 The beginning of a sad end of a promising game for me.
21...Nb4 22.Bd4 Nc2 23.Rxc2 Bxc2 24.Rc1 Bf5 25.h3 Rfd8 26.Be3 Bxc5 27.Rxc5 Rd7 28.Kf3 h5 29.g4 hxg4+ 30.hxg4 Bb1 31.a4 Rb8 32.Rc3 Ba2

Round 1 [Fritz 9 (15s)]


B90: Sicilian Najdorf: Unusual White 6th moves

9...Bb7 10.Re1 Nbd7 11.Nh4 Nc5 The pressure on e4 grows

16...Re8
[Fritz gives 16...Re8 a ??. I had considered 16...gxf5 but missed 17. Nd4, so I went for what I thought was a safer move.
16...gxf5 17.Bxf8 Nd4 18.Qg3+ Kxf8 19.exf5- +]
17.Rad1? This, unfortunately, just hangs the knight as white needs 3 pieces attacking to get checkmate.
17...gxf5- + 18.Qg3+ This allows a lot of counterplay down the g-file, so 18.Qxf5 is probably better.
18...Kh8 19.exf5

19...Rg8 20.Qh4 Rxg2+ 21.Kf1 Nd4 22.Bg5 Ng4! The very simple idea of forcing a trade while ahead, with the background Wayne-like idea, "Oh! I hung my bishop!?"
23.hxg4 Bxg5 24.Qh5
[24.Qh3 Bh4 25.Ne4 Bxe4 26.Bxe4 Rxf2+ 27.Kg1 Rf4- +]
24...Bf3! I thought this deserved an !; however, Fritz tells me that I missed a simple mate in 15!

29.Kg1 Rxf3 30.Qxh4 dxc3- +]
26...Rc5 White resigns after touching his rook. There is no place for the white pieces to go. Even after 27. Rde1, 27... Bf4 shuts down white's attack.
