  FSR: A very entertaining 3-minute game. I later discovered from Jimmy Adams' book on the Richter-Veresov that the whole game was analysis by Yudovich, but I had no idea of that (nor of theory on the opening) at the time.

  Domdaniel: <FSR> Very nice. Was it a 3-minute game because it was played to a 3-minute time limit, or was it a slower game that happened to end in three mins?
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <Domdaniel> The former. No doubt if White hadn't been blitzing out his moves, he would have played 12.e4! and the game continues.

  FSR: Queen's Gambit.

  FSR: Remarkably, this three-minute game turns out to be of some theoretical importance! GM Boris Avrukh in his book <Beating 1.d4 Sidelines> (2012) analyzes, after 4.dxc5? d4! 5.Bxf6 exf6 6.Ne4 Bf5 (we have now transposed to my game) 7.Ng3, the flaccid 7...Bg6. Komodo shows, however, that 7...Bg6 leads only to a minuscule advantage for Black. My 7...Bxc5!! is much stronger, leading to a large advantage for Black if White plays 8.c3! Be6, and a winning advantage for Black if White grabs the bishop on f5. See for details. So 7...Bxc5!!, which I blitzed out the year before Avrukh was born, turns out to be much better than the move he analyzed in his book 35 years later!

I was inspired to play 7...Bxc5! because I'd seen analysis of J H Donner vs Keene, 1971, in Keene and Levy's 1974 book <How to Play the Opening in Chess>. That game could have reached the same position as mine, but with a tempo more, had Keene played 7...Ng6 8.Bxc4! Note that that position has been reached some 23 times in the database, with White winning every game!
