Olton B v Solihull A
2006


1. e4 c6 2. Nc3 d5 3. d4 dxe4 4. Bc4!? Nf6 5. f3 Bf5 6. fxe4 White only weakens his K-side with 6. g4?! Bg6 7. g5 (7. h4 exf3) 7... Nd5 8. Nxe4 e6 etc. 6... Nxe4 7. Nf3 7. Bxf7+ is nothing after 7... Kxf7 8. Qf3 Nd6 9. g4 e6 7... e6 8. O-O Be7 9. Bb3 Nxc3 10. bxc3 Nd7 11. Bf4 O-O 12. Qe1 Qa5 13. Rd1 c5!? Quieter is 13...Rad8 or Nf6. 14. d5 c4! 15. dxe6 White's best chance is in the complications of 15. Bxc4 Qc5+ 16. Rd4! when Black has plenty of opportunity to go wrong. Let your Fritzes lose on this one!(16. Nd4 Qxc4 17. Nxf5 Bc5+ 18. Ne3 exd5 leads to a clearer type of position with an extra pawn for Black.) 15... Bxe6 16. Rxd7 Bc5+ 17. Rd4 cxb3 18. axb3 Bxd4+ 19. Nxd4 Rfe8 20. Qg3 Qh5 21. Re1 Bd7 22. Rf1 Rac8 23. c4 Re4 24. Nf3 f6 25. Bd6 Rce8 26. Qf2 a6 I didn't have time to look at 26... Re2 27. Qxa7 Rxg2+?! (27... Bc6!) 28. Kxg2 Bh3+ 29. Kf2 Bxf1 but this is unclear at best after 30. Qxb7 27. Qb6 Bc6! The move Black obviously wants to play, subject to having an answer to 28.Nd4. 28. Bg3 28. Nd4? loses to 28... Re1! 29. Rxe1 (29. Nxc6?? Rxf1+ 30. Kxf1 Qe2+ 31. Kg1 Qe1#) 29... Rxe1+ 30. Kf2 Qd1 with a winning attack. 28... Re2 29. Rf2 Rxf2 30. Qxf2 Bxf3 31. Qxf3 31. gxf3 31... Qxf3 32. gxf3 Re2 33. Bf2 Rxc2 34. Bd4 Kf7 35. f4 Ke6 0-1
