North Shore Open B (1.6), 26.08.2017



1.e4 g6 2.Nc3 Bg7 3.Bc4 a6 4.a4 d6 5.Nf3 Nd7
The only game I could find reaching this position was between two apparently unrated players in 2015. Ed: A pattern search reveals dozens of instances of the line 1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3. Nf3 d6 4.Bc4 Nd7?? Including highly rated victims and highly rated White players who missed the chance to play...

6.Bxf7+! Kf8
[After 6...Kxf7 7.Ng5+ White either wins the queen or mates in three.]

7.Bxg8
Andrew is conte nt with a pawn and still has a winning or near winning position but various other moves maintained a stronger initiative. The bishop still couldn/^t be taken.

7...Kxg8 8.d3 Ne5 9.Nxe5 Bxe5 10.Bh6 Be6 11.f4 Bg7 12.Bxg7 Kxg7 13.0-0 c6 14.Qd2 Bf7 15.f5 Qd7 16.Qg5 Raf8 17.f6+ exf6 18.Qxf6+ Kg8 19.Rf2 Qc7 20.Ne2 Qd8 21.Raf1 Qc7 22.Nf4 Qd8 23.Ne6 Bxe6 24.Qxe6+ Kg7 25.Rf7+ Kh6 26.Qh3+ Kg5 27.Qe3+ Kh5 28.g4+ Kxg4 29.R1f3 g5 30.Rh3 1-0
