  SneechLatke: 21...f4! shows excellent judgement on Suttles' part. While his opening is strange, perhaps even suspect, his exchange sac and handling of the initiative deserve praise.
Oct-28-05  whiskeyrebel: It just hit me....Suttles in the 60's and 70's was to chess what Frank Zappa (and also his pal Captain Beefheart) was to rock music. Sometimes a bit "ugly"..often offbeat and difficult for some to understand..yet loaded with talent and influential.

  IMlday: 4.a4 and 5.Nf3 look like the suspect moves in the opening. Why not 5.Bc4 Nf6 6.Nge2 instead? Lots of Day-Suttles speed games circa 1980 went 5.Bc4 Nc6 6.d5 Nb4 when 7.a5!? is the try for advantage. Day-Soltis Canadian Open 1980 was similar but Andy went ..Nb8 instead of ..Nb4. I had good results with White until L Day vs B Harper, 1981 whereafter I've generally preferred Black, eg: J Houska vs L Day, 2005 The really instructive move in Silman-Suttles is 9..Bc8! when White has nothing from the opening. Not an easy move to think of. Then 15..dxe5! not worrying about the discocheck and it's essentially over. The art of bamboozlement!

  who: What happens after 16.d6?

  notsodeepthought: <who> Probably just 16 ... Kh8 17 d:e7 (I don't know if white has better) Q:e7 but black will recover the piece since, after the dark-square bishop moves, black plays 18 ... Qc5+.

  Domdaniel: <whiskeyrebel> Well, yes. I'm glad it 'hit' you. I've been both a Beefheart and a Suttles admirer for 40-odd years... and yes, there *are* similarities. Maybe not in terms of wilful perversity, as much as sheer originality.
