1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 a6 6. Bg5 e6 7. f4 Be7 8. Qf3 Qc7 9. O-O-O Nbd7 10. g4 b5 11. Bxf6 Nxf6 12. a3 Rb8 12...Nd7 13.f5 Ne5 14. Qg3 Rb8 15.Na2 Bd7 was unclear in Mochalov vs. Maeder corr. 1977 13. f5 O-O More energetic is 13...b4. 14. g5 Nd7 15. Rg1 This rook can be deployed later on h3 via g3. 15... Ne5 16. Qh5 Shane is in a critical position where accuracy is at a premium. Elliott's evil plan is easy to spot, f5-f6 or Rg3-h3. Shane has not begun his counter attack. Shane finds a lateral defensive idea which allows Elliott to set up an interesting Queen sacrifice. 16... Qc5 17. f6 Bxf6 18. gxf6 Nd3+ The point of 16...Qc5. Warren has seen a little further. 19. Rxd3 Qxh5 20. Rxg7+ Kh8 21. Rh3 Qg6 22. Rxg6 fxg6 at this point the Fritz 6 program evaluates the position as in favour of Elliott. 23. Rf3 Kg8 24. Bh3 Kf7 25. e5 d5 26. Nxd5 Elliott is always to the point. 26... exd5 27. e6+ Bxe6 28. Bxe6+ Ke8 29. Nc6 Shane fell on the bamboo stakes by the thirteenth move. Interestingly Grantel improved with 14...Ne8. More of that later. 1-0 [John Tobisch]
