A Correspondence Chess Win By Resignation.

This server-based correspondence chess game began in mid-February and ended yesterday when my opponent playing Black resigned after my 28. Ne7+, a Knight-fork attack which would claim his last remaining Bishop after he moved his King to safety. He was right to resign when he did.

Our board at game’s end and our full move record:


1. Nf3 Nf6 2. d4 e6 3. c4 Bb4+ [It’s interesting to note that at this point our opening had developed into what is called the Nimzowitsch Variation of the Bogo-Indian Defense.] 4. Bd2 Qe7 5. a3 Bxd2+ 6. Nbxd2 d6 7. g3 Nbd7 8. Bg2 c6 9. O-O O-O 10. d5 exd5 11. cxd5 Nxd5 12. e4 N5f6 13. Re1 Ne5 14. Nxe5 dxe5 15. b4 Bg4 16. Qc2 Rfd8 17. h3 Bh5 18. Bf3 Qe6 19. Kg2 B g6 20.
