[Event "festival open"]
[Site "holiday Inn "]
[Date "9-29-2002"]
[Round "2"]

[Black "Jason(1472)"]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]

1. e4 e5
2. f4 exf4
3. Nf3 d6

The Fischer Defence, I had briefly gone over this opening in the OCB (pink cover) but didn’t remember everything or the exact moves.

4. d4 g5
5. Bc4 Bg7
6. O-O Nc6
7. c3 Bg4

I wanted to develop my knight but that dropped the g5 pawn and I didn’t want to waste a move playing h6(7...h6 8.h4).

8. Qe1 Bxf3
9. Rxf3 Nge7
10. g3 Ng6
11. gxf4 Nxf4
12. Qg3 Bh6 (if 12.Bxf4,gxf413.Rxf4,Qg5+)
13. Qg4 Qd7 I figured I would have a worse but playable endgame.
14. Qxd7+ Kxd7
15. Bxf4 gxf4
16. Bxf7 Ne7 (to stop 17.Bd5 which is kind of annoying)
17. Nd2 Rhf8
18. Bb3 Ng6?
19. Rh3 Bg5
20. Rxh7+ Be7
21. Nf3 Rh8
22. Rg7 Rh6

I wanted to play (22…Nh4) but he has moves like (23Ng5,Rf8, 24.Be6+,Ke8,25.Nf7,Rh5,26.Rf1)


23. Rf1 Rah8
24. e5 dxe5
25. dxe5 Nh4

I was hoping for (25.Nd4,c5 26.Nc2,Nf5 27.Rf7,Ne3 when the h2 pawn falls)

26. Ng5 Nf5
27. Rf7 Ne3
28. R1xf4 Rxh2
29. Be6+ Kc6
30. Nh3 Rg2+ (30.Nh3 is forced)
31. Kh1 Bg5
32. Rc4+ Kb6
33. Rcxc7 Bf4
34. Rxb7+ Ka5(Ka6)
35. b4+ Ka4
36. Bb3+?? Ka3 After the game Jim told me he thought 36.Bb3+ was mate ”I checkmated him but he just kept moving”-Jim

37. Be6 Rh2+
38. Kg1 Rg2+ draw

In your line given on move 12, (if 12.Bxf4,gxf413.Rxf4,Qg5+)Why not 12.Bxf4,gxf4 13.Rxf4,Qg5+ 14,Qg3?

Analysis 1. e4 e5 2. f4 exf4 3. Nf3 d6 4. d4 g5 5. Bc4 Bg7 6. 0-0 Nc6 (6... h6 is more accurate) 7. c3 Bg4?

7... h6 should have been played.

8. Qe1?

8. Qb3! wins back material with interest: 8... Na5 9. Bxf7+ Kf8 10. Qd5 c6 11. Qg5 Bxf3 12. Qxd8+ Rxd8 13. Bxg8 Bxe4 14. Rxf4+

8... Bxf3 9. Rxf3 Nge7?! (Better is 9... Qe7, e.g. 10. g3 0-0-0 11. gxf4 g4=) 10. g3 Ng6 11. gxf4 Nxf4 12. Qg3

12. Bxf4?! Nxf4 13. Rxf4 Qg5+ 14. Qg3 Qxg3+ 15. hxg3 Nxd4 16. cxd4 (16. Rxf7? Nc2! 17. Rxg7 0-0-0 18. Na3 Nxa1 and White has no way to pick up the knight on a1) Bxd4+ 17. Rf2 is an equal ending.

12... Bh6 13. Qg4 Qd7 14. Qxd7+ Kxd7 15. Bxf4 gxf4 16. Bxf7 Ne7?! (not necessary: 16... Rhf8! and if 17. Bd5 then Ne7). 17. Nd2 Rhf8 18. Bb3 Ng6? 19. Rh3 Bg5 20. Rxh7+ Be7 21. Nf3 Rh8 22. Rg7 Rh6

22... Nh4 could have been played, e.g., 23. Ng5 Raf8 24. Be6+ Ke8 25. Nf7 Bf6.

23. Rf1 Rah8 24. e5 dxe5? 25. dxe5?

25. Bc2! e4 (or 25... Nf8 26. Nxe5+) 26. Bxe4 Nh4 27. Ne5+ and Rxf4.

25... Nh4 26. Ng5?

26. Nd4! c5 27. Ba4+ Kd8 28. Nf3 (threatening Rd1+ and Rd7+) was a better attempt to preserve winning chances. Also better were things like Rd1+, Ba4+, etc. Now black gets a lot of counterplay.

26... Nf5 27. Rf7?

White had nothing better than 27. Rxe7+ Nxe7 28. Rxf4 Rxh2 29. Rd4+. Now black begins to create serious winning chances.

27... Ne3 28. R1xf4 Rxh2 29. Be6+ Kc6?

29... Ke8 30. Nh3 R8xh3 31. Bxh3 Rxh3 with winning chances; Kc6 leaves the bishop hanging.

30. Nh3 Rg2+ 31. Kh1 Bg5? (Better would be 31... Bd8 given White's next) 32. Rc4+! Kb6? (32... Nxc4 is forced) 33. Rcxc7 Bf4? 34. Rxb7+ Ka5 35. b4+ Ka4 36. Bb3+?? (obviously after 36. Rxa7+ or 36. Rxf4 black has to resign) Ka3 37. Be6 Rh2+ 38. Kg1 Rg2+ 1/2-1/2.
