Justin McDonald (1858) North American & Carribean Youth Champs 
This was the last round of the North American & Carribean Youth Championships. I had 3 points so far and I was fighting for a top 10 finish.
1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 e6 6. a3

I have never seen this before. Other moves that can be played are 6.Ndb5, 6.Nxc6 or 6.f3.
6... a6 7. Be3 Qc7 The last book move.
8. f3 b5 8... d5 9. exd5 Nxd5 10. Nxd5 exd5 11. Qe2= says Fritz8.
9. Qd2 Bb7 10. Be2 Be7 11. a4 11.

I think this deserves an exclam because i get rid of my backward dpawn and I weaken whites center.
15. exd5 Nxd5 16.

Better was 29... Qf5 30. fxe4 Qxe4 31. Bxf7+ Kh8 where I still put up a fight. 30. Bxf7+! Kf8? Back to Bac k blunders. At this point, I had a little less that 35 minutes to my oponents 20 minutes. Fritz8 caluculated the amazing 30... Qxf7 31. Qxf7+ Kxf7 32. Rd7+ Kf6 33. Rxb7 Rc1+ 34. Kf2 Rc2+ 35. Ke3 exf3 36. gxf3 Rxb2 37. Kd4= in less than 5 seconds. 31. fxe4 Qc5+? Another mistake. 31... Qxe4 32. Bd5 Bxd5 33. Qxd5 Qxd5 34. Rxd5 Rc1+ 35. Kf2 Rc2+ 36. Kf3 Rxb2= is another variation Fritz8 calculated. 32. Kh1 Bxe4 33. Rf1 Qf2 Some final tricks. 34. Qb4+ 34. Rxf2 Rc1+ 35. Rf1 Rxf1# 34... Qc5 35. Qxc5+ Rxc5 36. Bd5+ Ke7 37. Bxe4 White won in a few more moves. 10 [Barclay K.]
