  • Mystery game: Invite your comments, then I will reveal!

    Here is a bare game score, for a good quality, interesting game. I am inviting posted comments from site readers until January 25, then will reveal all the particulars! It is not in any database that I know of. Something like 'Master's Forum', which the CFC magazine used to run! Provide your analysis, and guess players' strengths, identities, date, time controls, circumstances, etc.

    1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.O-O Nxe4 6.d4 b5 7.Bb3 d5 8.dxe5 Be6 9.Nbd2 Nc5 10.c3 Be7 11.Bc2 O-O 12.Re1 Qd7 13.Nf1 f5 14.exf6 Bxf6 15.Be3 Nb7 16.Ng3 Bg4 17.Qd3 g6 18.Bh6 Bxf3 19.Bxf8 Ne5 20.Rxe5 Bxe5 21.Qxf3 Rxf8 22.Qe2 Qd6 23.Re1 Re8 24.Qg4 Re7 25.Rd1 Bxg3 26.hxg3 c6 27.b4 Qf6 28.Qd4 Qxd4 29.cxd4 Re2 30.Bb3 Nd6 31.Kf1 Rb2 32.Rc1 Nf5 33.Rd1 Kf7 34.g4 Nd6 35.f3 Nc4 36.Rd3 Kf6 37.g3 h5 38.gxh5 gxh5 39.Kg1 Kg5 40.Kh1 Nd6 41.a3 Nf5 42.f4+ Kg4 43.Bd1+ Kh3 44.g4+ Ng3+ 0-1.

      Anderson and Bluvshtein were strong Ruy Lopez players but these two lose track of book around move 10. Black's f5 was a bit loose. White tries for the h7 attack and flounders, making poor exchanges. Although the exchange sac was nice. White's king couldn't get off the back rank and loses to a surprise tactic, perhaps in time trouble. Perhaps back in 2000 they were 1700 juniors on their way up?
