Look what my sister got me for my birthday:
She took some awesome pictures on her phone at a bike show. She's into motorcycles.
Here's my game, which is not as bad as I'd thought at first:
(214) Thavandivan,Shiyam - Vicary,Elizabeth [B23]
Edmonton (3), 01.08.2008
1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.Bb5 e6 4.Bxc6 bxc6 5.f4
Now I did what I sometimes do, which is very bad: I tried to pretend to myself that this position was exactly the same in principle as the position I was familiar with when white's played Nf3 instead of Nc3. Of course, this position is much more dangerous that the Rossilimo one because white can play f4 immediately (In the other variation when the knight is on f3, it usually goes to g5 to allow f4.)
5... Ne7 6.Nf3 Ng6 7.f5 Nh4 8.0–0 Bd6 9.d3 0–0 10.Ng5 h6 Look at me, playing all of beastie's first choices!
11.Qh5 I thought I was completely lost here, but I have one resource
11...Be7! I don't find it of course, because it's an unforcing move, and I don't ever even look for those. 12.Nh3
12.exf5 hxg5 13.Ne4 Be7 14.f6 gxf6 15.Rf3??
15...Kg7! So now he sees his attack isn't working anymore and he's down two pawns, so he
throws the kitchen sink at me.
16.Rxf6 Bxf6 17.Bxg5 Bxg5 18.Nxg5
19.Qh7+ Kf6 20.Ne4+
[20...Ke5 21.Qg7+ Kd5 (21...Rf6 22.Qg3+ f4 23.Qg5+ Rf5 (23...Kd4 24.Qxc5#) 24.Qxd8) 22.c4#]
21.Rf1+ Ke5 22.Qg7+ Kd6 23.Rxf8 Qh4 24.dxe4 Qxe4
24...Qe1+? I definitely don't want to check, since his rook will be more dangerous to my king if it's on the first rank.
25.Qg3+ Qe5 26.Rf4 Ba6 27.b4
After this game, I thought I just got insanely lucky, but I'm more proud of it now-- I play Fritz's first choice for almost all the game. 0–1
