United States G/30 National Chess Championship: Francisco Anchondo


Francisco Anchondo demonstratated his usual tactical bravado in the fourth round of the 2011 National G/30 Chess Championship. His opponent, Eric Schiller, attempted to play a rather dull carro-kann but Francisco steered the game into a violent fantasy variation. I was glad to see such an exciting game take place in the open section and believe that Francisco Anchondo’s overall tournament performance should provide adequate proof that dynamic chess can be very successful at national championship events.

    Do you have the notations of the game? I saw it standing around your table and thought it might be very good to analyze it in more detail. It would be great if you would publish the game here. Thank you.
