Game four of a pre-Mt Buller training series between Charles Chadwick (reigning Tasmanian Champion) and Kevin Bonham (2001-2 Tasmanian Champion). We both thought this was very interesting at the end and were surprised when no obvious win for Black could be found in the postmortem. Any suggestions for significant improvements especially towards the end very welcome. I've included some variations from a run through Fritz but haven't analysed the game exhaustively.

what are the conditions for this match? Is it being played at a time control of 90/60?

We've negotiated the time control before each game based on how much time we have available. That one was a G90/+60.
