    Posting here (upon request) the following game from the 2017 WA Championship, which was presented in David Ellis's column in the West Australian newspaper this week.

    Annotations in the PGN below are mine: David gives some of these in his column, together with some notes of his own.

    It's very fiddly. Doesn't take too much to seize up the play-through. I still haven't fixed everything below. One thing was a typo: 8.Qb3 when Qb6 was meant. Maybe try reposting first without any notes, then if that works, edit with first-level notes in square brackets, and once that's working, try the next level in round brackets.

    Thanks, Capablanca-Fan. Have got it working without notes, in the post above. I will try now to edit the notes back in as you suggest.

    EDIT: Notes now included.

    One thing I discovered is that on returning to the parent line after any parenthetical, you need to include the move number in the first move of the continuation. This was the main problem with my PGN, in several places.

    E.g. 1.e4 (1.d4 d5 =) ...e6 = will not work. It is required to write 1.e4 (1.d4 d5 =) 1...e6 = .

    Glad it finally worked. Quite a tense game; although White could remove Black's K-side P cover, he couldn't get to the K, while Black's Q-side play proved too strong.

    I was pleased with this game on Monday, against an opponent over 200 points higher rated than me. From a terrible opening position, I got a good middle game and found a strong 53rd move.

    What edits do I need to do to make the PGN viewer work? The PGN file was pasted from ChessBase 14, where I added my comments. The resultant curly brackets around my notes seem to break the PGN though.

    Always take the headers out from inside the PGN tags.

    Always remove line gaps after the opening PGN tag and before the closing one.

    Those two things did it for me as concerns the main moves; click on quote to see how I did it if unsure.

    I don't you had equalized on move 31. Really, White has no real weaknesses, and one square on d4 won't make up for the exchange because Black's other pieces are not working with it. With some care, White could either work around it and prepare f4, e5, or probably the most straightforward, at the right time, give back the exchange on d4 and be a P up with good position. If the centre and K-side open up, Black might miss his B on g7.

    When you won the P back on a5, it also removed a safe anchor for a N on b6, so I think you were better. White had just made weaknesses and his pieces were not working together. Some nice tactical alertness with 51... Nxd5, and you cleaned up well after that.

    J. Adams - Mandla, 0-1

    To redress the balance, here is my loss last night, also in the Rooty Hill Open, to Blair Mandla (2122 and a CM). If I had resisted the sacrifice I may well have drawn. He told me afterwards that his second move was a line he played in his youth. I had not seen it before but came out of the opening fine.

    Well played adamski, but I have a bit of criticism:
    I think e4 ruined your advantage a bit. The knight on c3 was doing an important job of controlling b5 while the knight on f6 was less useful, so I think it was a bad decision to trade them and f5 was quite a weak pawn and it would kind of support a knight outpost on f4. I would recommend a plan like e3, nc7, rd1, a6, bd3 (to prevent the knight from trading on e4 later on), b5, b3 (and later on ne2, nf4).
    Other than that, I agree with most of your analysis. I think 24. ra3 was quite a good move and that 25. ra5 would give black serious problems. I haven’t checked anything with an engine so I’m not sure of how good my suggestions are, but I hope my comments help
