  Jonathan Sarfati: This was an unusual slugfest, against a player Roger A Court who won the title in 1965 and known for his imagination. But here Fenny gives up a pawn for good compensation, then outplays his opponent in a good tactical battle.

1.d4 Nf6 2.e3 d5 3.Bd3 c5 4.c3 e6 5.Nd2 Nbd7 6.f4 cxd4?!

best not to make this exchange in the Stonewall without good reason, because it eases White's cramp and allows him to support e5 with a half-open file.

7.exd4 Bd6 8.Ndf3 Ne4!? 9.Bxe4 dxe4 10.Ng5 f5 11.Nxe6 Qe7 12.Ng5 Nf6 13.Ne2 Bd7 14.Qb3 b5 15.Qd1 Well, that achieved a lot.

15...Ng4 16.0-0? Nxh2 17.Ng3 Ng4 18.N3xe4? rather desperate, but there are still some tricks left.

18...fxe4 19.Nxe4 0-0 20.Nxd6 Qh4! the mundane 20...Qxd6 would win as well with the extra piece

21.Rf3 Qh2+ [21...Rae8 was quicker -- often it is best to confine the enemy king before checking.]

22.Kf1 Qh1+ 23.Ke2 Rae8+! 24.Nxe8

[24.Kd2 Qxg2+ 25.Kd3 Rf6 and if 26.Nxe8 Bf5#;
24.Be3 Qxg2+ 25.Kd3 Rxe3+ 26.Rxe3 Nf2+ winning the Q]

24...Rxe8+ 25.Be3 Qxg2+ 26.Ke1 Rxe3+ 27.Rxe3 Qf2# 0-1
