Notes

<p>This game was played in the 2003 Multivariant Play By E-Mail Tournament.</p> <p>John Lawson played White. Peter Aronson played Black. Black resigns on move 35. See the above illustration.</p> <!-- Converted from text/rtf format --> <p>John Lawson comments:</p> <p>Unlike most of the games in the PBEM tournament, I have some experience playing Grand Chess.&nbsp; I also prepared slightly by reviewing the first few moves of games played by the winners of various Grand Chess World Championships so I wouldn’t make a big mistake in the opening.&nbsp; Those game scores are available at <a href="http://www.mindsports.net">www.mindsports.net</a>.&nbsp;</p> <p>Interesting points in the game to examine are:</p> <p>6. Pawn d5-d6: I get the opportunity to post a supported pawn on the 6th rank.&nbsp; Until then Peter had the better of me in the center with a central Pawn and Bishop.&nbsp; I try to drive the Bishop back, and Peter chooses to exchange for my Knight on move 7.</p> <p>11. …Pawn d7xc6: A battle rages for control of the King’s side.&nbsp; I believe that Peter was expecting the response 12. Pawn d6xc7, but I chose 12. Rook c1xc6. This Rook will be a valuable asset for most of the rest of the game.</p> <p>22. …Queen a5xe5: Most of the last eleven moves have been about attacking or supporting my Rook, which is now on c7.&nbsp; I have made an oversight here. I’ve been trying to drive Peter’s Queen away, and have allowed him the opportunity to trade it for the Cardinal and a Bishop. I accept the trade in order to maintain momentum and&nbsp; I also end up with three more Pawns.</p> <p>25. Rook c7-e7+: This starts some interesting infighting that results in a significant exchange of material that brings the game to a close.</p> <p>Note that the ZSG calls the Cardinal, “Princess”, and the Marshal, “Empress”.</p> <p><u>Moves List</u></p> <table border="1" width="306"> <tr> <td width="20"> <p>&nbsp;</p> </td> <td width="129"> <p align="center"><b>White</b></p> </td> <td width="135"> <p align="center"><b>Black</b></p> </td> </tr> </table> <font SIZE="2"> <table border="1" width="306"> <tr> <td width="20"> <p align="left"> <font SIZE="2"> <span lang="en-us"><font face="Arial">1</font></span> </font> </p> </td> <td width="129"> <p align="left"> <font SIZE="2"> <span lang="en-us"><font face="Arial">&nbsp;Pawn c3 -
