  FSR: Weird game. Is Black really the grandmaster Chernin? Hard to believe. He must have been flummoxed by the weird move order. Instead of 5...a6?, 5...d6 or 5...Nc6 leads to normal Sicilian lines. After 6.e5 Ng8, Black had a bad game and completely fell to pieces.

  fm avari viraf: From Alekhine to Sicilian where White's dominance of dark colour prove fatal. May be Chernin underestimated his adversary & played carelessly. Can Black survive after 12...Bxd5? 13.Qxd5 [or Rxd5] Ngf6 14.Qd6 with multiple threats. Hence resignation is most appropriate.
Mar-06-07  Resignation Trap: I have the distinct feeling that Black was somebody other than future GM Alexander Chernin. Was this game played in the US Open?

My suspicions were right. Black was Oliver Chernin .

  FSR: By the way, the opening is really a Sicilian Defense by transposition, not an Alekhine's. A more typical way for it to arise would be 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 a6 (the Kan Sicilian) 5.Nc3 Nf6? 6.e5.

  perfidious: Oliver Chernin sounds right-I played some events with him in the period 1976-78, including the '76 US Junior Open at Storrs, Connecticut, an event the future GM would have won without trouble.
Aug-08-13  Ziryab: Alekhine transposes to Franco-Benoni, and then to a very bad Sicilian Kan. Nice thrashing.
