The other is Andrew, the United States of America 16 year old who if he continues along his current trajectory, may make it as the best American or even World Champion someday. Andrew transposes into a kind of Dragon System of the Sicilian but he plays an early e6 not d6, the latter being more common in Dragons. e6 is more common in the Taimanov System of the Sicilian Defence but here their is a kind of hybrid system adopted. Andrew plays well but stil in the opening blunders a piece to a well spotted attck by Visakh, but even a piece down Andrew nearly gets an almost drawish position against all concieved common sense and wisdom which would sugest Andrew was beaten by the more plaudited player. Eventually Visakh shows his class.} 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 e6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nc6 5. Nc3 a6 6. Be2 g6 7. O-O Bg7 8. Nxc6 bxc6 9. Be3 $5 {b6 d6 f6 and even h6 spring to mind as weaknesses in this poorly designed opening system by Black, the dark squared bishop is vital in establishing an advantage for Visakh.} Ne7 10. Bd4 {This was played in an amatuer game in 1998.} (10. Qd6 {this was played by two International Master level players-who didnt actually have titles in a game in Sibiria.}) 10... e5 $1 {a better move than played by the amatuers} (10... f6 $6 $16 {thats where the amatuer game diverged}) 11. Bc5 O-O $2 {Its a mistake because the Visakh Dark Squared Bishop now pins the Knight to the Rook. That in itself may not cause problems but its important to avoid such weaknesses as a combination of weaknesses can cost material or a losing position.} 12. a4 Rb8 $4 {allowing a double attack to win material.} 13. Qd6 {now the weak Knight on e7 is attacked twice and only defended once but at the same time another attack by the White Queen is made on Andrews Rook on b8, this is known as a double attack and is often resulting in loss of material as here but Andrew is clever with his loss going for as many pawns as posible.} Rxb2 $5 14. Qxe7 Qxe7 15. Bxe7 Re8 16. Ba3 Rxc2 17. Rfc1 Rd2 18. Rd1 Rc2 19. Rac1 Rxc1 20. Rxc1 f5 21. f3 Bh6 22. Rb1 Be3+ 23. Kf1 Bd4 24. Nd1 d5 25. exd5 cxd5 {to re-appraise the situation, Andrew has gotten 2 pawns for the loss of the piece but he has a monster pawn formation in the centre to compensate- the position isnt at all clear at this stage though the person with the piece is usually favourite in these types of positions, especially with the queens off.} 26. Bb2 Ba7 27. Rc1 Bb8 28. Rc6 e4 29. Bxa6 Bd7 30. Rb6 Bxa4 31. Bb5 $4 Bxb5+ (31... Bxd1 $4 32. Bxe8) 32. Rxb5 Rd8 $2 {Andrew misses a golden chance at a probable draw.} ( 32... Bxh2 33. Rxd5 exf3 34. gxf3 $14) 33. Bd4 $2 {Visakh is overconfident maybe or too aware that a blockade of the pawns will stiffle Andrews chances once and for all. But Visakh here misses a clear hung pawn.} Bf4 $2 (33... Bxh2 $16 {and an unlikely draw looked certainly possible.}) 34. g3 Bh6 35. f4 Bf8 36. Ne3 Bg7 37. Bxg7 d4 $5 {a surprise necessary tactical lunge.} 38. Bxd4 $1 { avoiding all the risks.} (38. Bf6 Rd7 (38... dxe3 $4 39. Bxd8) 39. Nc4 d3 40. Ne5 $3 Rf7 (40... d2 $4 41. Rb8+ Rd8 42. Rxd8#) 41.
