<p>This game was played in the 2003 Multivariant Play By E-Mail Tournament.</p> <p>Tony Quintanilla played White. Michael Nelson played Black. White resigns after Black's move 24. See the above illustration.</p> <p>Nelson comments:</p> <p>8.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; . . . Knight&nbsp; g7 x e6&nbsp; threatens to trade Knight and Rook for Empress.<br> 9.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Bishop h2 - e5&nbsp; causes the loss of the Bishop as well. Best is King<br> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; e2 -d1 for a fairly even game.<br> 15.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; . . . Knight f6 x e4&nbsp; the start of another combination.<br> 16.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Princess g2 x e4 is best defense: if Rook e1 x e4 then Queen d9 x d5 +<br> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; and the Rook will be taken on the next move. The actual line saves the Rook,<br> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; but Black can force the exchange of Queens.<br> 19.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; . . . Princess f7 x b3 +&nbsp; White might well have resigned here.</p> <p><u>Moves List:</u></p> <table border="1" width="300"> <tr> <td width="22" align="center"> <p>&nbsp;</p> </td> <td width="125" align="center"> <p><b>White</b></p> </td> <td width="131" align="center"> <p><b>Black</b></p> </td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">1</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Pawn e3 - e5</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Pawn e8 - e6</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">2</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Pawn f3 - f5</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Knight b9 - c7</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">3</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Pawn f5 x e6</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Knight c7 x e6</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">4</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Pawn d3 - d5</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Knight e6 - g7</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">5</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Empress f2 - e4</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Rook a10 - e10</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">6</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Pawn g3 - g4</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;King e9 - d10</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">7</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Knight i2 - h4</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Princess g9 - f7</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">8</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Pawn e5 - e6</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Knight g7 x e6</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">9</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Bishop h2 - e5</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Knight e6 - c7</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">10</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Bishop e5 x c7</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Rook e10 x e4</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">11</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Bishop c2 x e4</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Pawn d8 x c7</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">12</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Pawn c3 - c5</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Rook j10 - e10</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">13</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;King e2 - d1</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Knight i9 - h7</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">14</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Rook j1 - e1</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Knight h7 - f6</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">15</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Queen d2 x j8</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Knight f6 x e4</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">16</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Princess g2 x e4</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Rook e10 x e4</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">17</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Rook e1 x e4</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Queen d9 x d5</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">18</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Queen j8 - d2</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Queen d5 x d2</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">19</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;King d1 x d2</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Princess f7 x b3</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">20</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;King d2 - c3</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Princess b3 x a1</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">21</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Rook e4 - d4</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;King d10 - c10</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">22</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Rook d4 - d1</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Bishop c9 - f6</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">23</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;King c3 - b4</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Princess a1 x b2</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">24</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;Rook d1 - d2</td> <td width="131">&nbsp;Bishop f6 - c3</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="22" align="center">&nbsp;</td> <td width="125">&nbsp;resigns</td> </tr> </table>
