Emir Dizdarevic v Andrew Greet

Tromso Olympad 2014 (Bosnia v Scotland, Bd.2)











IM Andrew Greet, formerly of Truro School and St. Austell and the second-strongest player to emerge from Cornwall, behind only Michael Adams, is now based in Glasgow and plays international ches for Scotland. This game features an entertaining, but perhaps unsound, sacrificial mating attack.

1.Nf3 d5 2.e3 Nf6 3.c4 e6 4.b3 c5 5.cxd5 exd5 6.Be2 Nc6 7.0-0 Bd6 8.d4 cxd4 9.Nxd4 Qe7 10.Nf3 Be6 11.Bb2 0-0 12.Nc3 a6 13.Rc1 Rfd8 14.Qc2 Rac8 15.Qb1 Bb8 16.Rfd1 Ng4 17.h3 Nxf2

Ambitious but seems unsound. 17...Nge5 equalises.

18.Kxf2 Qc7 19.Bf1

The losing move. 19.Kf1 looks good for white
