{A good win for me this week after a poor run of form losing my last 4 competitive matches 2 of them 
from winning position. Did not give my opponent much of a chance even though he is a lower grade 
he can be quite difficult to play and has already beaten Peter Houching earlier this season in the intro.} 
1. e4 c6 2. Nf3 d5 3. exd5 cxd5 4. d4 Bf5 {Caro-Kann Exchange Variation Panov Attack. It is usual for 
White to play Bishop to be played to d3 then black has trouble finding a good square for his bishop.} 
5. Nc3 Nf6 6. Bb5+ Nc6 7. Ne5 { White going straight into the attack but black can defend this 
position easily enough if he plays correctly. I did not play the correct move here. I usually play 
Rc8 but here I decided to play Qc7 first white should have played Bf4 which would have been a much 
stronger move and gives white a slight advantage.} Qc7 8. Nxc6 bxc6 {This leave black with an isolated 
a pawn which can be a problem in the end game but black has a good game from this position.} 
9. Ba4 e6 10. Be3 {An interesting move for white here would be Bf4 I would have had to think about 
this as it cannot be taken because of Bxp+ and forks the rook. Bd6 BxB QxB would not be much of an 
advantage to black.} (10. Bf4 Qxf4 11. Bxc6+ Kd8 12. Bxa8) 10... Bd6 11. h3 O-O 12. Qd2 {My next 
move anticipated White to castle queenside as why did he move Qd2} Rab8 13. O-O-O {I thought at the 
time Bb3 and then castling kingside was better because of the b file being open but Fritz says this 
is Ok if White plays correctly form here.} Qb6 {Looks good and as it turns out it is a not a bad 
move but Rook e8 and then push the e pawn would be a safer and better plan.} 14. Bb3 Bb4 {Diagram #} 
15. Bg5 $4 { White loosing move he had to stop Ne5. f3 would have been the move then white position 
would have been safe and perhaps had an attack going with an immediate g4} Ne4 $3 16. Qe3 Nxc3 
17. bxc3 Ba3+ 18. Kb1 $4 {Kd2 was much the better square for the king. Here his pawns give no 
protection to his king and his Bishop is stuck and about to be moved not sure he has any good moves here.} 
a5 $3 {Its not a forced mate yet but white must play all the correct moves from here on in.} 
19. Qg3 {not the correct move to state an attack which black can easily repel. g4 was much better 
move but difficult to find as looking at it g4 Bg6 then what} (19. g4 Bg6 20. Qd2 {and at least white lives on}) 
19... a4 20. Bh6 {last chance for white.} Bg6 {not g6} ({Fritz 12:} 20... g6 21. Bxf8 Bxf8 
22. Rd3 axb3 {and white survives for a while longer}) 21. Bf4 {This gives black a forced mate in 
4 against any defence.} axb3 ({Fritz 12:} 21... axb3 22. Ka1 bxc2 23. Rb1 cxb1=Q+ 24. Rxb1 Qxb1# ) 
22. axb3 Qxb3+ { White resigned here.}
