Game 45: Mar 18, 2014

Mar 18, 2014, 8:53 PM |

This is my quickest victory OTB.  It was over in 7 moves.  It is a trap in the Scotch Gambit. 

My opponent has played a lot of games in his lifetime, but had not come across this opening.  To his credit, the moves he made seemed natural, and the response to the fatal 6...Be7 is not easy to see.  Better is 6...Bd6 or 6...Bc5, when we would have had a real game.

Tough break for my opponent.
