I live in Australia and when I was active (a few years ago) was around ACF 1850, which would probably just get me a 2000 FIDE rating. Am rusty at best now and wish I could find time to play more OTB. As the old shearer says in that classic Aussie film Sunday Too Far Away: "I used to be able to go; I'm f***ed now though."

My Evergreen Game:

White: TrueFiendish Black: S Bartlett
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 g6 4.0-0 Bg7 5.c3 Nf6 6.Re1 0-0 7.h3 e5 8.d4 cxd4 9.cxd4 exd4 10.Bf4!?(N) Re8 (...Qb6) 11.Nbd2 Qb6 12.a4 a6 13.Bc4 Nb4 (if 13...Na5 14.e5 Nh5 15. Bh2 is very good for white) 14.Qb3 (Bxf7+!) d5!? 15.exd5 Bf5!? 16.d6 Bc2 17.Bxf7+! Kf8! 18.Qc4 Bd3 19.Bxe8!! Bxc4 20.Nxc4 Qc5 (if 20...Qd8 A: 21.d7 Nbd5 [...Nxd7 22.Bd6+ Kg8 23.Bxd7 Qxd7 24.Bxb4] 22.Bd6+ Kg8 23.Ng5! B: 21.Nxd4!) 21.d7! Qxc4 22.Bd6+ Kg8 23.Ne5! Qc2 24.Bf7+ Kh8 25.Rac1 Qf5 26.g4! Ne4 27.gxf5?! (if 27.Rxe4 resigns) Nxd6 28.Rc8+ (28.Nc4!) Rxc8 29.Nxg6+ hxg6 30.dxc8Q+ Nxc8 31.Re8+ Kh7 32.fxg6+ Kh6 33.Rxc8 and wins the endgame. Wish I had played 27.Rxe4; that would have capped it off perfectly.
