    A game played by Weyerstrass ... he resigned and I still can't see why .

    1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Bb4
    4. e5 Ne7 5. a3 Bxc3+ 6. bxc3 c5 7. Qg4 O-O 8.
    Bd3 f5 9. exf6 Rxf6 10. Bg5 Rf7 11. Qh4 h6 12.
    Nf3 1-0

    I'm guessing it was a tournament formality to speed it up or something???

    I can't see a white win for the life of me.

    it is quite possible that not all of the game was recorded, incomplete games are often submitted online. I have been at tournaments and later looked at the games and thought that the moves never happened.

    that's possible. okay thanks.

    I figured something was fishy because as far as i know, that's the last Nf3 was the first move out of the book... and I was sure it wasn't winning.

    Anyways.. thanks .

    That's an ICCF game...

    There is certainly no immediately winning line for white there although Black may not be able to take on g5 safely for some time...
