French Defense/Classical VariationC13

C. Frost (1139) - C. Carroll (1514)

Glendale June Swiss (Round 6, G/30)
Indianapolis, Indiana USA - June 15, 2002


1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Bg5 Be7 5. Bxf6 Bxf6 6. e5 Be7 7. a3 c5 8. Nf3 Nc6 9. Bb5 Qb6 10. Qe2 a6 11. Bxc6+ bxc6 12. b3 cxd4 13. Na4 Qa5+ 14. Qd2 Qxd2+ 15. Nxd2 Rb8 16. b4 Bd7 17. Nb2 c5 18.

Although I donít have a complete score of the remaining moves, the following position was eventually reached:









 


1... Kd7 2. Kb5 Kc7

Inaccurate, as White simply repeats with 3. Kc5

Correct is 2... Ke7 then 3... f6 But White takes the bait anyway:

3. Kxa5? d4! 4. Kb4 d3 5. Kxc4 d2

And Black went on to win.

0-1 [C. Carroll]
