Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-07-03  Lawrence: Chess Assistant 7.1 shows same game, same result, but Black's advantage here is so tiny--not my appraisal, Junior 8's--that one can't see why White would resign.

  FSR: This game makes no sense. Hard to believe the score is correct.
Feb-05-19  Sally Simpson: ***


It was Columbia v Seychelles, Columbia won 4-0.

The 10 games we have with Ralf Gerald Kimende show 9 times 1.e4.

That and the odd looking moves almost guarantees a very dubious score.

I can see a possible reason here:

Why Black did not play 4...Nxe4.

5.Qb3 b6? 6. Qd5 so that is why Black played 4...e6 to stop Qd5. But why not take the e-pawn later.

If we stay with what we have. White playing 9.Bd3 spotting it's a blunder and resigning.

maybe (a big maybe) 5...Nd7 instead of 5...Be7

and it then goes 6. Qd2 Bxf3 7. gxf3 e5 8. dxe5 Nxe5 9. Bd3

White resigned because only now did he see Nxf3+

I'll not submit a correction on such flimsy evidence but it is way for 9.Bd3 0-1 to happen.

  FSR: 4...Nxe4 5.Qb3 Qc8 wins a pawn cleanly enough IMO. But your guess is as good as any.
