Oct-11-13  falso contacto: First book that I read on openings years ago was advocating for this Ne7 and Ne8 line for black. b4 is well known. This a4 idea looks like a novelty to me.

  Stonehenge: 12. Ba3 was played in this internet game:

Oct-22-13  Lovuschka:

According to computer analysis, a draw is:
22.-R:f1! and:
23.R:f1 Se3!, or:
23.S:f1 Qd7!! 24.Kg2 Rf8

click for larger view

25.Kg1 e4!, winning back the piece or forcing a draw by repetition (perpetual check), for example after 26.Rc1 Qf5 27.S:e4 Qf3 28.c:d6 Sf2 29.S:f2 Q:f2+ 30.Kh1 Qf3+ 31.Kg1, and interesting now is also 31.-c:d6 when White must be careful to get the draw. 32.Sd2 Qe3+ 33.Kh1 Q:d2 34.Qe4 draws then, but can a human find this?

Interesting is also 25.Qe4? Sf2 26.Qe2 e4 27.Bb2, when only 27.-Qh3+!! seems to draw, or by human intuition even win. 28.Kg1 Sd3 and White must give the piece and more back by taking on e4.

29.S:e4! B:b2 30.Q:d3 B:a1 31.Se3 Qd7 32.Sg5 Rf6 33.Se4, and Black can decide if he goes for a draw with 33.-Rf8 34.Sg5, or tries to win with 33.-Rh6 and an interesting endgame that is drawn according to the computer but in a practical game probably not easy to hold. For all human intuition, this looks lost for White, but the computer sees a dead draw.

(after 33.-Rh6)

34.Qd1 Be5 35.Qf3 Q:a4?! 36.Sf5 Rh8 37.Se7+ Kg7 38.Sf5+ Kg8 39.Se7+ with perpetual check. The human moves instead are 35.-Bd4! 36.Kg2 B:e3 37.Q:e3 Rg6 (of course 37.-Qf5 38.Q:h6 Q:e4+ is a dead draw) 38.c:d6 c:d6 39.Q:a7, and now this position is reached:

(after 39.Q:a7, Black to move)

It might be a draw, but both sides have chances. I think this could have been an interesting endgame.

But of course, this has nothing to do with the actual game, it just shows what could have been possible if computers would have played each other. Humans play different chess.

  OhioChessFan: I had a look back at my votes for best game of 2013 and this was one, mostly for the aesthetic effect. What a beautiful final position:

Nov-22-15  KID Slayer: Being that today's opening of the day is the KID, this game gives hopes that the Bayonet is still effective to beat the KID, particularly against the 9...Ne8 line that usually gives better results for Black than much of his other alternatives after 9.b4.
