[Event "Cornwall v Devon"] [Site "?"] [Date "2002.01.12"] [Round "5"] [White "Simon Bartlett"] [Black "Alan Brusey"] [Result "1-0"] [ECO "C00"] [PlyCount "49"] [EventDate "2002.??.??"] {In a perfectly decent position black eventually fails to find the answer to white's active pieces allowing Simon to finish incisively in a line he used effectively a number of times and which is sometimes referred to locally as the Simon Bartlett Memorial Gambit.} 1. e4 e6 2. Nf3 d5 3. e5 c5 4. b4 cxb4 5. d4 Qb6 6. Bd3 Bd7 7. a3 Nc6 8. axb4 Nxd4 9. c3 Nxf3+ 10. Qxf3 d4 11. O-O dxc3 12. Nxc3 Bc6 13. Qg3 Qxb4 14. Bd2 Qd4 15. Nb5 Qd7 16. Rfb1 a6 17. Bc3 O-O-O $4 {Probably the worst move on the board apart from leaving a piece en prise. Most of the alternatives leave white struggling to justify the sacrifice of two pawns.} 18. Na7+ Kb8 19. Nxc6+ Qxc6 20. Bxa6 b6 21. Bb5 Qd5 22. Qg4 Nh6 23. Qa4 Bc5 24. Bc6 Bxf2+ 25. Kh1 1-0
