An interesting, good and well matched game.
You can see what both players up to and how their moves followed their ideas.
Here a few viewers will mumble when White played 4.Nxd4
4.cxd4 is the idea behind the c3 Sicilian but I tried 4.Nxd4 a few times here.
The idea being I want the usual tricks a Knight on d4 gives me plus I'm blunting
the ½ open Sicilian file (and I'm away from the boring lines.).
But it never gave me anything ( except a good game for Black.)
A try for White here was 17.Ba4 seeing if he can swap off that c2 Bishop.
Then, as what happened in the game, White can do the Nf3-d2-b1-c3-d5 plan
withouth the Knight getting traded.
A position someting like this crops up if Black trades.
The Knight is Captain America.
White played 28.f4 and after 28...exf4 he realised he could not recapture
due to the exchange winning 29.Qxf4 Bd4.
So we chalk up another example of a badly timed f2-f4 (28.Kh1 first.)
Black slipped in 30...Bc3. White to play.
31.Bxg6 looks good and interesting. I don't think Black can take either the
Rook or the Bishop. I've not given it a good going over because I spent more
time on this position....
It leads to a smashing King Hunt.
White has sacced his Bishop on g6 (34.Bxg6) but did not appear to get the same play as 31.Bxg6 gives.
In the above diagram Black played 40.Qg6.
40.Rxe5 leads to a perpetual. I've left all the moves in I flicked about with
instead of producing a mainline. It looks right.
