My 3rd game ever against a Grandmaster (after losing to GMs Michael Stean & Tony Miles), and the first in which I had good winning chances.

Sorry the sound is a little flaky in places. I have recorded this video using a new software setup and I need to fine-tune the settings!

Cheers,
Graham

What an incredibly unorthodox and interesting game.

Ditto that. Awesome game and video. It hurt my brain, but in a good way.

With the ...Bc5 idea (as an alternative to the ...b5) can't white just play Ne4, hitting the bishop?

Good question.

Another good point of 14...Bc5 is that Black has made space for his Queen on e7. Thus after 15.Ne4,Qe7! Black is threatening to win the Queen by 16...Rfb8. White will have to sacrifice (lose) a piece by Nc6 at some stage in order to save his Queen.

I hope that clarifies. Thanks very much for the question. Its always good to get feedback!

Cheers,
Graham
