The White team, boosted by the addition of FM Tom Bartell, won the consultation game at Kenilworth. Here are the moves played last night :

25...Ng5? (sealed move) 26.Bd4 a5 27.Bxe5 Nxf3+ 28.Qxf3 Rxe5 29.Nd4 Qb6?? 30.Rc7 Re1+ 31.Rxe1 Qxc7 32.Re8+ Kg7

33.Nf5+!! gxf5 34.Qg3+ Kh6 35.Rg8+ 1-0 PGN

Annotations & java-replay will follow sometime tonight.

I assume the final moves you give are in error. 33.Nf5+!! yes, but then 33...gxf5 34.Qg3+ Kh6 35.Rg8 perhaps and not the other way around as you have it.

Great game for White! The sealed move for Black, though, was a lemon....maybe ...d4!? instead? I thought Black was better until the exchange of dark-squared Bishops when White gained d4.

Yes you're right Michael. In a rush to get the game posted yesterday morning, with just 3 hours sleep, I transposed the last few moves & the diagrams. Thanks for noting the error.
