Both players kept ignoring each other's threats in order to make more of their own. At one stage my opponent said "This is how chess should be played", and I agree. } 1.e4 e6 2.e5 { I sometimes play this against the French just to get out of the standard lines. } 2...Nc6 3.d4 b6 4.Nf3 d5 5.exd6 Qxd6 6.c3 Bb7 7.Be3 O-O-O 8.Nbd2 f5 9.Bd3 { Ignoring the threat of ...f4. } 9...a6 { Ignoring threat of Ng5 } 10.Qe2 { Still ignoring.. } 10...b5 { And again } 11.Ng5 { Here we go } 11...f4 12.Nf7 Qd7 13.Nxh8 fxe3 14.Qxe3 g6 { Now he's threatening B or Q d7, picking up the N. } 15.Nxg6 hxg6 16.Bxg6 { Now I've got 3 P's and a R for a N and B } 16...Bh6 17.Qe2 Nxd4 { Great sac! My opponent's last two moves have been very good. He's not afraid to sac even when material down. } 18.cxd4 Qxd4 19.Nf3 Bxf3 { I could be in a bit of trouble if I take with the Q because of the weak d2 square. } 20.gxf3 Bd2+ 21.Kf1 Qxb2 { Ignoring my threat of Qxe6 } 22.Qxe6+ { Ignoring his threat of Qxa1 } 22...Kb8 23.Kg2 Be3 { For a moment, I try to decide which rook to protect the f-pawn with, but the I see... } 24.Qxe3 { Black resigned. A shame for the game to end like that, especially when he's still got threats like Qg7. } 1-0
