2017 Owensboro June Open Round 3 
Marquis Quinn, 1672 - Anton Taylor, 2027 
English: Anglo-Indian (A17)

1. c4 Nf6 2. Nc3 e6 3. Nf3 d5 4. d4 c6 5. cxd5 exd5 6. a3 Up until this move we have followed theory. The text restricts the bishop but it finds a good home anyway so it is useless. 6. ... Be7 7. Bg5 Nbd7 8. e3 O-O 9. Be2 Re8 10. O-O Nf8 11. h3 Once again white plays a useless pawn move. This one is arguably a little more useful that the previous rook pawn advance but the bishop it is meant to restrict is happoy on other squares as well. 11. ... h6 12. Bxf6 Probably an error. White should keep his fine bishop and not give it up voluntarily. 12. ... Bxf6 13. b4 Bd7 14. Rc1 Ne6? An error on my part but not losing. Qe7 is better because it connects the rooks and eyes a3 if white advances b5 for a minority attack. 15. Qb3 Qe7 More or less a transpositon had I played Qe7 earlier. 16. a4 Qd6 17. e4?? I expected b5 here continuing white's plan. This move just loses a pawn and ultimately the game. 17. ... Nxd4 18. Nxd4 Bxd4 19. exd5 Bxc3 20. Qxc3 Qxd5?? A "winning blunder" Black is better after the pawn is lost but why not simply Qxe2! winning a piece? I was caught up in the variation from seven moves before and this was the move I had calculated. I did not take enough time on this move. 21. Bc4 Qg5 22. Qf3 Be6 23. Rfd1 Bxc4 24. Rxc4 Rad8 25. Rcd4 Rxd4 26. Rxd4 Re1+ In case you were wondering this ending is an excercise in good technique but should be completely won by black. 27. Kh2 Qe5+ 28. Qf4 Qxf4+ 29. Rxf4 Kf8 30. Rd4 Ke7 31. Kg3 Re6 32. f4 Rd6 33. Rc4 Kd7 34. Kf3 Rd5 35. g4 Rd3+ 36. Kg2 b6 37. h4 Kd6 38. b5 of all the moves to be tried giving black a passed pawn is not the best idea. 38. ... c5 39. Re4 Rd4 40. Kf3 Rxe4 41. Kxe4 Now with the rooks off the board any drawing chances white had are gone. as the saying goes "most rook endings are drawn" This one probably wouldn't be regardless but the win is easier after they get traded off and white should have avoided it. 41. ... Ke6 42. f5+ Kd6 43. g5 h5 44. g6 f6 45. Kd3 Ke5 46. Kc4 Ke4 47. a5 Kxf5 48. Kd5?? After this move komodo gives quite possibly the worst evaluation I have ever seen in a game -250.00!! 48. ... bxa5 49. Kxc5 Kxg6 50. Kc6 a4 51. Kb7 a3 52. Kxa7 a2 53. b6 a1=Q+ 0-1 Forced mate in 12.
