Sveinsson,J (2000) - Elburg,J (2335) [C40]
Training game, 1999

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f5 3.exf5 Bc5 One of my most interesting lines in the Latvian Gambit!

4.Nxe5!? Bxf2+!? 5.Kxf2 Qh4+ 6.Kf3
[6.g3 Qd4+ 7.Kg2 Qxe5 8.Qe2 d6 9.Qxe5+ dxe5 10.g4 h5 11.h3 b6 12.Bb5+ c6 13.Be2= Hassenzhal - Keffler corr.1973]

One of my new ideas in this variation.

[A new try is here from white is here 7.Qe2!? Bb7+ 8.Ke3 Ne7 9.Nf3 Bxf3 10.Kxf3 Nbc6 11.g3 Nd4+ 12.Kg2 Qf6 13.Qe4 0-0 14.Bd3 d5 15.Qh4 Qxh4 16.gxh4 Nexf5 17.Na3 c6 18.c3 Nxh4+ and white is better but Black is not without play! Derecho Inaki - Elburg John corr.2000]

7...Nf6 8.Nc3 Bb7+ 9.Ke3!?
[After the White player this is much better than the move from Hagen Tiemann: 9.Ke2 b4 10.Nf3 Bxf3+ 11.Kxf3 bxc3 12.Qe2+ Kd8 13.bxc3 Re8 14.Qd3 Ne4 15.g3 Nxg3 16.hxg3 Qxh1+ 17.Bg2 Qh5+ 18.g4 Qh4 19.Bf4 h5 20.gxh5 Qxh5+ 21.Kf2 Nc6 22.Bf3?! (After Hagen he had to play here 22.Rh1!? Qg4 23.Bg3 and draw on move 27. Tiemann - Elburg corr.1994.) ]

9...b4 10.Ne2 Nd5+ 11.Kd2 0-0 12.Nf3 Qe4 13.Qe1 Re8 14.Kd1 Qxf5 15.Qf2 Nf6 16.Nf4 Ne4 17.Qg1 g5!? 18.Nd3 g4 19.Nfe5 d6 20.Nc4 g3
Even Fritz6 could not find this move!

21.Be3 Nd7 22.Be2 Ndf6 23.Bf3 Rab8 24.Nd2
[24.hxg3 Nxg3 25.Bxb7 Nxh1 26.Bc6 Qg4+ 27.Bf3 Qh4 28.Bd2 Ne4 29.Bxe4 Rxe4 30.Be3 Rbe8 31.Kd2 Ng3 32.Re1 Nf5 33.Nxb4 Nxe3 34.Nxe3 c5 35.Nd3 cxd4 36.Nc4 Qg5+ 37.Kd1 Qg4+ 38.Kc1 Rxe1+ 39.Nxe1 Qe6 Is even better for Black!]

24...Ng4 25.Bxg4 Qxg4+ 26.Kc1 c5 27.dxc5 dxc5 28.Nf3 Rbd8 29.Kb1 c4 30.Nde5 Qf5 31.Nxc4 Rc8 32.Nd4 Qf6 33.Na5 Nf2 34.Qc1 Be4 35.Rg1 Ng4 36.Rf1 Qb6
Here White did resign because of [36...Qb6 37.Nab3 Nxe3 38.Qxe3 Bxc2+ 39.Nxc2 Rxe3 40.hxg3 Qg6 41.Nbd4 Rd3 42.a3 Rxd4 43.Rf3 Rxc2 44.Ka2 Qe6+ 45.Kb1 Rxb2+ 46.Kc1 Qc4+ 47.Kxb2 Rd2+ 48.Kb1 Qc2# ] 0-1
