A quick and curious FRC win.

The server based Fischer Random correspondence chess game began three weeks ago and ended this morning when my opponent playing White resigned after losing his Queen at 14…Qxf1. This was a most curious resignation because with his next move he could easily have captured my Queen with either his Rook at d1 or his Knight at e3 and he’d not have been at any disadvantage at all. I’m guessing that he hit the resignation button quickly, before looking at the board very closely. Or maybe he just didn’t like playing without his Queen.

At any rate, The opening board we were assigned, our move record, and the position of pieces at game’s end:


1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.cxd5 exd5 4.e4 dxe4 5.g4 Nd6 6.Ne3 f5 7.gxf5 Nc6 8.d5 Nd4 9.Rc3 a6 10.O-O-O N4b5 11.Rb3 g6 12.fxg6 hxg6 13.f3 Re8 14.fxe4 Qxf1
