Jeremy Menadue v Alan Brusey
British Championship 2014, Rd.10
Only played this with black as in rd2 v GM Nick Pert!
Avoiding the Meran after 6 Bd3 - which I've also played with black..
9.Be2 more usual - Bd3 has better percentage
White has an interesting problem - which side to castle
Unfortunate, 16...Nxd5 transposes.
Allowing a neat finish
Then after a fiery draw in the last round, ended on an acceptable 5/11 but rather too many mistakes over the two weeks.
