Canada and America have competed in every conceivable type of event. In hockey Canada has dominated, in war we're tied, sort of, and in everything else, including chess, America has tended to dominate.

Which is why the recent continuation of this rivalry , a vote game between the  respective national teams, was to be so interesting; and the game did not disappoint.

When I annotated this game, I didn't just want to analyze it, I wanted to tell the story behind the game. I also wanted it to be at least  marginally educational. The struggles and drama surrounding the moves, the surprisngly active defense and the unavoidable strangulation followed by a quick snuffing out of resistance.  There is also a lack of '!'s and '?'s, I was perhaps overcautious when awarding such marks. You'll note I didn't include the game result on the board, I wanted to make it suspenseful.


Great game, eh? Canada's ready for a rematch anytime America! Also, I'd like to thank RobertABrown, Kinthelt, bbrout, holojay, Spiffe and everyone else who helped on both sides!
