Emory Tate is regular figure on "Fire on Board" because if anyone's games are illustrative of fire, it is his. This game was interesting and shows (again) what a danger he came be when he gets an attack rolling.

In this game he faces 15-year old phenom
Salvijus Bercys, an International Master. Tate springs a couple of inventive ideas 7.Qe2!? and 10.Bh3! to throw the game into massive complications. Bercys played several moves to stave off the attack, but like a lion stalking a gazelle, Tate kept up the pressure.

Notes are by Emory Tate and came from the audio recording. You can hear the recording
