Jeremy Menadue v Dominic Tunks
Hampshire v Cornwall, 2014/15 (Bd.1)
Brand new position. 5...Qd8 has happened before
Arguably Black's most useful move of the game
8.Nge2 gets in the tempo move Bf4 but looks strange.
Hard to tell if white's overextended or black's getting squashed.15.c5 Qd7 16.Bh3(=)
Turning down the draw and castling into an attack
18...Nf3+ 19.Rxf3 Bxf3 20.Rf1 (20.c6 bxc6 21.Bf1 (21.Qd3 Kb7 ) 21...Kb7 22.Qd3 Ra8 ) 20...Bxe4!? 21.Nxe4 Qxd5 looks fine as 22.Nd6+?! Bxd6 (22...Rxd6 23.cxd6 Qxd2 24.Bxd2 Bxd6 ) 23.Qxd5 Bxh2+ 24.Kxh2 Rxd5
I didn't see that 26.Rxf7 was so strong 26...e5 (26...Bd6 27.Nb5 Bc5 28.Nxc7 or 26...Nc4 27.Qb5+ Nb6 28.Na4) Simply 27.Kh1 then Nb5 and Nxc7 or just b4 then Nb5. Not 27.Rf3 Nc4 (27...Qg4+ 28.Rg3 wins the Ne3 as 28...hxg3 29.Qb5+ Kc8 30.Qb7# ) 28.Qb5+ Nb6.
