1. e4 c5 2. Nc3 Nc6 3. Nf3 ({Well, I thought you were planning to play} 3. f4
$1) 3... e6 4. d4 cxd4 5. Nxd4 {This may not be a bad result, I know Charlie
has been looking to play systems with ...e5 not ...e6.} 5... Bc5 6. Be3 (6. Nb3
$5 {is logical and may give a slight plus} 6... Bb4 7. Be2 (7. Bd2)) (6. Ndb5
$1 {looks best to me, even though it means moving a piece twice.} 6... d6 7.
Bf4 e5 8. Nd5 $1 8... Rb8 9. Nbc7+ Kf8 10. Bg3) 6... Qb6 7. Nxc6 $2 {
Fine if Black takes back on c6, but of course that's not forced.} (7. Na4 $1 {
looks best to me, and not to hard to find.} 7... Qa5+ 8. c3 Bxd4 9. Bxd4 Nxd4
10. Qxd4) (7. Ndb5 $5 7... Bxe3 8. Nd6+ Ke7 9. fxe3 Qxe3+ 10. Be2 Nd4) 7...

$6 {logical, fixing d6, but it's a long way from home} 13... Rb8 14. a3 Ng6 15.
Ne4 Nxe5 16. Nd6 $1 {squatting like a toad in a stone.  Black's extra pawns
look quite irrelevant at the moment.} 16... Rb6 17. Nxc8 $2 {Swapping a great
Knight that has moved three times for a Bishop that has not moved at all.  So
this swap is also a loss of time.} 17... Rxc8 18. Ra2 c5 19. c3 cxb4 20. cxb4
Nc4 21. Rc1 21... d5 {Now it's grim.} 22. Kf2 Kf8 23. Bxc4 $6 {
Really, white should avoid exchanges.} 23... Rbc6 $5 {cheeky} 24. Rac2 Rxc4 25.
Rxc4 $2 25... Rxc4 26. Rxc4 $4 {
With the exchange of the last piece, goes White's last hope.} 26... dxc4 {
Pawn endings are usually pretty clearly won or lost.  Even without the Pc4,
this is clearly won for Black.} 27. Ke3 e5 28. a4 Ke7 29. Ke4 Kd6 30. b5 f5+
31. Ke3 Kc5 0-1
