Woodbridge v Wanstead, 31.03.2011
[Rumsey,Victor]



1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Be3
Simon Alapin used to play this way back in 1892.

3...dxe4 4.Nd2 Nf6 5.f3 Nc6 6.Bb5
[6.fxe4 Nxd4 was another try]

6...Nd5?
I'm not too sure about removing a defender like this

7.Qe2 exf3 8.Ngxf3 Nxe3 9.Qxe3 Bd7 10.0-0 Be7 11.Rae1 a6 12.Bxc6 Bxc6 13.Ne5 Qd5 14.Ndf3 0-0
both side continue to play logical moves

15.c4 Qa5 16.Nxc6 bxc6 17.Ne5 Qxa2 18.b3 c5
Black probably thinks he's winning, but now comes a bolt from the blue

19.Nxf7!! e5?
cracking under the pressure [19...Bf6 was better, with the deadly threat of Bd4. White must play well to demonstrate a draw 20.Rxf6! (20.Qxe6? Rxf7 wins for Black) 20...gxf6 21.Ng5!! fxg5 (21...e5 22.Nxh7! also draws as thw queen sets up checks along the white diagonal from h3.) 22.Qxg5+ Kh8 23.Qe5+ with a draw.; 19...Rxf7?? loses to 20.Rxf7 Kxf7 21.Qxe6+ ]

20.Qxe5 Bf6 21.Qd5!
Black is lost in all variations. [21.Qd5 with his queen and Q-rook out of play, Black has no defence. 21...Rxf7 (21...Bxd4+ 22.Kh1 doesn't help; 21...h6 22.Rxf6 gxf6 23.Nxh6+ Kg7 (23...Kh8 24.Qh5+- ) 24.Nf5+ Kg6 25.Nh4+ Kh6 26.g4! (26.Qe4! ) ) 22.Qxa8+ Rf8 23.Re8+- ] 1-0
