The (hopefully) pivotal game between myself and the top seed at this year's Sudbury Championship. Like last year, I have white. This time, however, I needed to win (instead of just draw) to move into first place, as I had taken a round 1 bye for work.
I have not annotated the game... it's fairly short and violent and the variations should probably be calculated without my help :P.
I would love to play Guelph! When's the next one? Might be a good place to get some NM norms...
Very nice game, you need to be playing in the Guelph pro am right now.
18. ... dxc6 19. E5 Nd5 20. Qg4 g6 21. Nh6+ Kf8 22. Nxf7 Kxf7 23. Bxd5+ cxd5 24. E6+ leads to mate I think... probably other wins there too.
Sorry, I see you want me to do it myself. (Duplicating effort and all).
What happens after18. dxc6?
Time control - 30 moves in 90 minutes, SD in 60
