  plang: Game 3 of their 6 game match and Adams third consecutive win. 13 a5 was an alternative that would have prevented the Black knight from occupying that square. Adams recommended either 15 g4 or 15 Bc4 as alternatives to Rowson's 15 d4? which led to a clear disadvantage for White. 20 Qc1? was another error which allowed 21..Nfxe4! since 22 Bxe4 would have been answered by 22..Nxe4 23 Rxe4..Rb1. Adams pointed out that, in the endgame, Rowson probably should have captured the c pawn and forced Adams to show his technique in the rook and 3p versus bishop and 3p on the kingside.
