  FSR: Strangers on a Train. I played this against a guy on a CTA train who saw me analyzing on my Drueke magnetic set and offered to play. The finish is reminiscent of NN vs Leonhardt, 1903: White will lose his queen to one of two knight forks, by different knights. If 17.Qc3 Na2+; if 17.Qc5 Nb3+.

  JonathanJ: Did you write down the moves or did you recall the game from your memory?

  FSR: <JonathanJ> From memory. My moves were very logical and forcing, making the game easy to remember (although 12...Re8+!, which occurred to me immediately after I moved, was stronger).

  FSR: <waustad> One can lose one's queen a lot faster than that, e.g. 1.e3 e5 2.Qf3 d5 3.c4 e4 4.Qf4 Bd6 0-1 Nek-Bill Wall, Internet 1999. In other versions of the same game, the moves are identical except that White played d4 or Nc3 instead of c4.
