#400 Last Night's Consultation Game

In last night's consultation game at Kenilworth, the White team led by experts David Grasso & Mark Bilenky defeated a Black squad headed by KCC Champion NM Mark Kernighan & U1800 titleist Ian Mangion. 27 players participated.

It was an exciting contest with both sides in deep time-trouble over the last 16 moves and a terrific tactical conclusion where the victorious side sacked 2 Exchanges!

Here is the raw score :

B81 Sicilian Defense
Keres Attack
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 d6 6.g4 h6 7.h4 Nc6 8.Rg1 g6 9.Be3 a6 10.Qf3 Ne5 11.Qe2 Qc7 12.0–0–0 b5 13.f4 Ned7 14.g5 b4 15.gxf6 bxc3 16.h5 cxb2+ 17.Kb1 Nxf6 18.hxg6 Nxe4 19.Bd2 f5 20.Bg2 d5 21.Bxe4 dxe4 22.g7! Bxg7 23.Ba5! Qf7 24.Nc6 Bd7 25.Rxg7!! Qxg7 26.Qh5+ Kf8 27.Bb4+ Kg8
