Missing description (9x7, Cells: 79) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Larry Smith wrote on 2008-12-09 UTCFor those who are interested, this is a record of the Game Courier game between John Smith and myself: Red(J. Smith) Black(L. Smith) 1. Ca(b2)-e2 S-e7 2. S-e5 H(h8)-e9 3. S-e6 SxS 4. Ca-h6 S-i5 5. S-g4 S-a5 6. S-g5 CaxS 7. E(g1)-e5 Ca-i6 8. CaxH HxCa 9. CaxS+ H-d6 10. S-i3 S-g6 11. H-g4 CaxCa+ 12. M(f1)-e3 HxS 13. HxS ExH 14. S-i4 H-f3+ 15. G-f1 CaxCh 16. Ch-i3 Ch-b4 17. ChxH ChxCh+ 18. G-e2 Ch-g2+ 19. G-f1 S-c6 20. Resigns By initially concentrating on a defensive game, I was able to gain material advantage. John made the error of over-valuing the opening effectiveness of the Cannon on this hexagonal field and lost both early in the game. Once this occurred, I was able to quickly press an assault on his General, taking out both of his Chariots in the bargain. If he had not resigned I would have easily mated his General.
