…continued from Polly’s blog –
I found this novelty in an opening book, the answer to a long thorny problem, how to continue development in this queen’s orthodox, as Black. The g6, Nh5-g7, Bf5 maneuver is brilliant, some creative minded strong-player (probably GM) came up with this. I’ve done well by it the couple of times I’ve played it. It thwarts White’s natural inclination to continue playing naturally for the advantage.
I believe this game took me less than 8.5 minutes to play, so it was mostly on his time, and I am almost surely a “slow” player to all the others on FICS who try to beat me on time and are often successful at it. I know this because they don’t quit when they drop a piece, hint, hint, and they have played me multiple times.
White will end up losing another pawn from the final position, and so resigns.
