Another Win With White

As has been the case for the past many years, I have several correspondence games in progress at any one time. Depending on the time controls being used, each game can take days, weeks, or even months to play.

These days I restrict my play to Fischer Random Chess which is played with the standard rules and unorthodox starting positions of the major pieces.

This is a game I won a few days ago playing White when my opponent with the Black pieces resigned after my 32nd move. The opening board we were assigned, our complete move record, and position of pieces at game’s end are below:

1. d4 e6 2. e4 Bh4 3. g3 Bg5 4. Bd2 Bxd2 5. Nxd2 Qe7 6. Qe2 Nd6 7. e5 Nf5 8. Ncb3 b6 9. a3 Qg5 10. Ne4 Qg6 11. c4 Nc6 12. Nbd2 Ncxd4 13. Qd3 c5 14. Nf3 h5 15. h4 Nxg3 16. Nxg3 Nf5 17. Rh3 Nxh4 18. Qxg6 Nxg6 19. Nxh5 Nf4 20. Nxf4 Rxh3 21. Nxh3 Rd8 22. b4 d6 23. exd6 Rxd6 24. Nhg5 f6 25. Ne4 Rc6 26. Nh4 Kh7 27. Bc2 g6 28. Nxf6+ Kh6 29. Nxe8 e5 30. Nxg6 Rc8 31. Nd6 cxb4 32. Nxe5 1-0
