  IMlday: The event was FIDE's World Junior Championship, then one tournament held every two years. This was perhaps the last time that Suttles played an Open Sicilian. It was an important game, the winner went to the final top championship section (which Yugoslav Bojan Kurajica won ahead of USSR's Tukmakov.) Duncan Suttles had to be satisfied winning the 'B' group (ahead of a very young Raymond Keene!) Instead of 4.d4 interesting is 4.Bb5 Nd4 5.Nxd4 cxd4 6.Ne2 Qg5 7.Ba4 Qxg2 8.Ng3 when Kevin Spraggett considered White had at least enough compensation for his g-pawn. However Black had better, 4..Nge7, eg: L Day vs A Muir, 1996 After 4.d4?! cxd4 Kurajica gets (later typical)instructive play down the c-file. Instead of 11.f4 I would have preferred to keep the pieces on the board with 11.Nde2!? eg 11..Ng4 12.Bc1 Qb6 13.Rf1 looks about even. White isn't invested in having to go forward until the overplay 11.f4. Kurajica's 17..g6! is a fine strong move. Nf5 is prevented and ..e5 becomes big progress for Black. The rest is easy. Four years later Kurajica vs Suttles, 1969 Suttles was more cautious!
