Big result for Howard Decker

Howard Decker

Here's the game Howard Decker won in a Saturday tournament against Rick Motroni. Howard was swinging up over 600 points. Nice game Howard!

 A couple of opening notes: 3. Nf3 I have one of these big databases that has over 50 games with this line. A lot of the white players are 1800-2100. This actually looks like it could be a fun opening - at least worth a try once or twice for surprise effect. If you want to try it, I'll help with the research!

3...e6 a portent of how wild and messy this game is going to get. . 3...dxe4 straight up and White has to show some real magic or at least a little bluff.

4. Nc3 (reached by transposition: 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 c6 4. Nf3) 4...Bb4 5. Bd3 dxe4 6. Bxe4 Nf6 7. Bd3 Steinitz-Czarnowski, Paris 1867.
