  Honza Cervenka: By far not flawless but definitely entertaining game. 3.d3 is a not bad way to avoid theoretical lines of Petrov/Russian game. White got a kind of Philidor or Ruy Lopez Steinitz variation with reversed colours and extra tempo, and it seems to be quite comfortable for him. He had some advantage and he won a Pawn from the opening but 20.Qc4 was a tactical slip, which allowed black to retake Pawn with huge interest. Fortunately for white, in sharp position black missed a nice little combo 26...Nxh3! with idea 27.Qxg4 Nf2+, which would have given him a sound extra Pawn, and after another mistake (30...Qg6, coldblooded grab of Pawn 30...Rxa2 was correct, as eventual mate on g2 neutralizes all immediate threats of white) white decided the game by quick mating attack of his remaining heavy pieces. In the final more precise finish could have been 31.Qe8+ Kh7 32.fxg7 Kxg7 (32...Qxg7 33.Rxf7 +-) 33.Qe5+ and 34.Qxa1 +- or 33.Rg4 +-; 33.Qf8(?) gave black last chance to escape by perpetual but in move 35 it was necessary to give a check by the Queen from e2 instead of e6, instead of 33.Qf8 more precise would have been 33.fxg7, as after that black counter-attack is insufficient for perpetual, for example 33...Qg1+ 34.Kg3 Qe3+ 35.Kg4 Qe2+ 36.Kh4 Qe1+ 37.g3 +-, and after 33...Qg1+ 34.Kg3 Qe1+ 35.Kg4 Qd1+ 36.Qxd1 Rxd1 37.Rxf7 white has a winning Rook ending.
Dec-19-18  sudoplatov: The reversed Steinitz is interesting in that some opening books suggest that White can often enter a Steiniz defence a tempo down, with profit.
