    Even draws can be exiting!

    The following game was played yesterday in a Bosnian tournament.

    GM Drashko - GM Heberla

    1. Nf3 Nf6 2.g3 b5 3. Bg2 Bb7 4. Na3 b4 5. Nc4 Bc5 6. a3 d5 7. Nce5 bxa3 8. Ng5 Qc7 9.d4 cxd4 10. Ngxf7 Nc6 11. Rxa3 Nxe5 12. Nxh8 Ned7 13. g4 e5 1/2-1/2.

    Pity that the players decided to agree to a draw. Would be interesting to see how this interesting struggle would continue. I would rather be black here.

    Very messy position. 14.Rh3 looks decent for white, with the idea of taking on h7 (shifting the knight if it doesn't take on g4 first). The knight can also go to h5 (...g6, g5 Nh5) but then white might sac the exchange for a pawn on h5 and put a bishop there to get a knight out via f7. However, black can instead respond to pressure on the h-file with pressure on the c-file (14.Rh3 Rc8 15.g5 Ne4) There are a lot of lines but I'm not certain that black even equalises.

    And still, no one has satisfactorily proven, that it isn't opposite day.

    Might I humbly suggest both K. Casey - Piedmont (15 moves, from 1988), and M. Craven- K.Casey (18 moves, from the 1994 Noosa Open) as entertaining miniatures. They can both be found on chessgames.com, they're both under 20 moves, and, naturally, they both feature Casey-esque queen-saccing mayhem....

    Cheers,
    Kevin Casey
