Nov-17-06  percyblakeney: One of my last games at RedHotPawn before taking a break from online chess:

[Event "Challenge"]
[Site ""]
[Date "2006.11.03"]
[Round "-"]
[White "Max Harmonist"]
[Black "NN"]
[WhiteElo "1753"]
[BlackElo "1692"]
[Result "1-0"]

1. Nf3 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. a3 Bxc3 5. bxc3 b6 6. d4 Bb7 7. e3 c5 8. Bd3 O-O 9. Qe2 d5 10. cxd5 Qxd5 11. c4

<My dubious opening play included ideas about Bxf3 gxf3 and an open file for the rook, but black won't be interested in this anyway and here e4 would surely have been better>

Qh5 12. dxc5 Qxc5 13. O-O Qh5 14. Nd4 Qg5 15. e4 Qe5 16. Bb2 Nbd7 17. Nb5 Qg5 18. f4 Qh4 19. Bd4 Nc5 20. Bxc5 bxc5 21. Nd6 Bc6 22. e5 Nd7 23. Be4 Bxe4 24. Qxe4 Rad8 25. Nb7

<Qc6 followed by Qc7 would have been stronger>

Rc8 26. a4 a5

<I had expected 26. ... Rc7 27. Nd6 Nb6 28. a5 and black would be uncomfortable, but even more so now>

27. Nxa5 f6 28. Qb7 Nb8 29. g3 Qh6 30. exf6
Qxf6 31. Qe4 Qc3 32. Qxe6+ Kh8 33. Qe1 Qd4+ 34. Qf2 Qc3 35. Nb7 Rc7 36. Nxc5 Qxc4 37. Rac1 Qb4 38. Nd3 Qd6 39. Rxc7 Qxc7 40. Rc1 Qa5 41. Qc5 Qd8 42. Ne5 Na6 43. Qc4 Qb6+ 44. Kf1 Qb7

<Here Qa7 would have been better for black, for example 44. Qa7 45. Nf7+ Kg8 46. Ng5+ Kh8 47. Qc2 g6 48. Ne6 Re8 49. Qb2+ Kg8 50. Rc7>

45. Nf7+ 1-0
