Nf3 Bb4+ 4. Nbd2 Nf6 5. a3 Be7 6. e3 O-O 7. Bd3 Nc6 $2 { Although a developing move it is not consistent with Black's structure as the e5 break is unlikely. Black now has to sit tight and react to what White plays which is something Jamie is very good at.} (7... c5 {is more consistent to put pressure on White's centre. If} 8. dxc5 a5 9. cxd5 Qxd5 10. Nc4 Bxc5 11. O-O Rd8 {and Black has good chances.}) 8. Qc2 h6 9. O-O dxc4 10. Qxc4 Bd7 11. Qc2 Bd6 {This makes sense as Black is seeking to play e5 but White can still maintain control of the e5 square.} 12. Ne4 $2 {A mistake} (12. Nc4 {was the correct move maintaining a straightjacket over Black's position. Now Jamie can play his freeing move.}) 12... Nxe4 13. Bxe4 e5 $1 14. Bxc6 {This seems like the natural move as it appears to win a pawn but Jamie has seen further.} Bxc6 15. dxe5 $6 (15. Nxe5 Bxe5 16. dxe5 Qd5 17. f3 Qxe5 {is about equal and a likely draw may be the result with the opposite coloured bishops on the board.} ) 15... Bxf3 $1 16. exd6 $4 {and this is a blunder. White has clearly missed Black's next move.} (16. gxf3 Qg5+ 17. Kh1 Qxe5 18. f4 Qh5 {when Black is perhaps slightly better.}) 16... Qg5 17. g3 Qg4 {There is now no stopping the mate.} 18.
