  GrahamClayton: 19. ♘d8! - an unusual trapping of the Black Queen, as 19...♕c8 or 19...♕xc6 loses the Queen after 20. ♘xe7+.

  FSR: This is a Dragon Variation, not a Closed Sicilian. The position after Black's seventh move could just as well have arisen from 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6 6.Be2 Bg7. Opening Explorer

  Fusilli: <FSR> Yes, and that is something that should be picked up by the software. I wonder if it was thrown off by the fact that the white knight came out through e2 instead of f3, but I have no idea how chess software works.

  FSR: <Fusilli> Opening Explorer finds two instances in the database that reached the same position after Black's tenth move: this game, and one that reached the position in a more "normal" way. I don't know how the software works either - maybe it just sees 2.Nc3 and marks the game "Closed Sicilian" without looking at the further play.

This game has a move order to reach a main line in that opening that I don't think I've ever seen (A Summerscale vs R Shaw, 1999).
