  keypusher: If it was anyone else than Welling playing black I would assume that 3...a5 was just a slip.

It was no slip, but based on a slip by another player ! A Bulgarian correspondence player - Mr. Popov, correspondence GM - once wrote down 3..17-15 on his card by mistake. After overcoming his disgust he tried to make the best of it .. and won. Then he started to play it on purpose. Eventually, the result was a small article, and before it became wider known, I have tried it a few times .. In this game we see what was Popov's main line : - he analysed 6.Bxf7+ ( probably just enough to draw ) - and 6.Be2 d6 7.d4 Bg4 then 8.dxe5 Bxf3 was played in his initial game. By the way the opponent was not Ralf Axel Simon from Berlin, but the Dutch player Rudy Simons.

Popov's 3 ... a7-a5!? is featured in the recently released <SOS 9> by New In Chess.

"By the way the opponent was not Ralf Axel Simon from Berlin, but the Dutch player Rudy Simons."

Why hasn't Chessgames fixed this as yet??

This a bold game and a great win.

  beenthere240: 31. Qf3? looks like a slip of the hand; where is the win after a more normal move like Qd2?
