iChess.NET vs ChessTweets 2011: As white, I opened with e4 and Chesstweets responded with the Sicilian Najdorf. I was in the mood for a wildly complicated contest so I opted for a rarely seen sideline called the Opocensky Variation, involving 6. Be2 and 8. g4!? Black decided to allow a quick g5 by immediately playing 8. …0-0. White was able to gain space and temporarily seize the initiative, however I chose a mistaken plan starting with 10. Rg1?! (better was 10. h4). Black played a series of forcing moves with 12. a5! 13. f5!? and an excellent pawn sacrifice with 15. Nb4! – seizing the initiative and taking advantage of white’s lack of development and coordination. An excellent intermediate move, 21. Nc7! began a sequence of forcing moves that led to near-perfect harmony in the black position. A very precisely calculated combination with 28. …Qxg5! allowed black to win an exchange, and retain a dangerous attack against white’s exposed king. An accurate series of checks by black – 33. …Qc4+ 34. …Qf4+ and 35. …Qf3+ led to white’s resignation.
