I had completely forgotten about this unfortunate game until I was reminded by an old school colleague. However, I managed to dig out my very tatty old chess scorebook from almost 40 years ago and there it was, my personal nightmare, sticking out like a sore thumb. Here it is in its entirety. Who needs 15 moves when 11 will do!} 1. g3 {Peter was already a very strong 215 ECF rated junior and think one of the top players for his age, so I thought I should play it safe. Let's park the bus and go for a 0-0 draw ... haha!} d5 2. Bg2 Nf6 3. Nf3 Bg4 4. c4 c6 5. Ne5 Be6 6. b3 $6 {I think this move, whilst natural, is rubbish!} (6. cxd5) (6. d4) 6... Nbd7 7. Nxd7 $2 { This accelerates Peter's development and ready made attack.} (7. d4 {Had to be played.}) 7... Qxd7 8. d3 $2 {More irrelevant rubbish, Black just gets on with his easy attacking plan.} (8. cxd5) (8. Bb2) (8. O-O) 8... Bh3 9. O-O h5 10. Bg5 h4 11. Bxh4 $2 {The final piece of my trilogy of rubbish moves!} Rxh4 { And it was early to bed for me except I had to wait for the rest of my team to finish as we were playing away in Portsmouth! You can imagine how I felt on the minibus journey home. This game taught me a valuable lesson to play my normal game. Luckily, 9 months later, I got my revenge.} 0-1
