Nov-09-15  PhilFeeley: White must have lost on time here.

There's another game with this opening between these two from 1992, discussed by John Watson (but not completed) in his book "Secrets of Modern Chess Strategy":

Manion-Norwood, 1992 (he doesn't say where):

1. e4 g6 2. d4 d6 3. Nc3 c6 4. f4 d5 5. e5 h5 6. Nf3 Bg4 7. Be3 e6 8. h3 Bxf3 9. Qxf3 Qb6 10. 0-0-0 Nd7 11. Kb1 h4 12. Ne2 Ne7 13. Nc1 Nf5 14. Bf2 a5 c3 c5 16. dxc5 Bxc5 17. Nd3 Bxf2 18. Qxf2 Qxf2 19. Nxf2 g5 <Watson: "With the collapse of White's pawn chain, Black obtains a clear advantage."> 20. Bb5 gxf4 21. Nd3 0-0-0 22. Bxd7+ Kxd7 23. Nxf4 Ke7 <Watson again: "White simply has to stand by while black plays ...Rhg8-g5, ...b5 and at the appropriate moment ...Ng3-e4, surrounding the e-pawn and creating too many threats.">

So why is that game not here?
