{A game with my student, Kevin Lu}
1.e4 c5 2.d4 cxd4 3.c3 Nf6 4.Bd3 {Probably better is} (4.e5) {but Kevin is delaying this until move 28} 4...Nc6 5.Nf3 dxc3 6.Nxc3 d6 {The position is a Smith-Morra Gambit with the white bishop on d3, rather than the usual c4. Because of this, White does not now have tricks involving e4-e5.} 7.0-0 Bg4 {Probably better is} (7...g6) 8.h3 Bxf3 9.Qxf3 a6 {Black has an extra pawn but with his last few moves is falling behind in development.} 10.Bg5 Ne5 11.Qe3 e6 12.Rfd1 Rc8 13.Bf4 {A typical Kevin trap, but Rybka likes it too! A good alternative is} (13.Rac1) 13...Qa5 (13...Be7?? 14.Bxe5 dxe5 15.Bb5+) {winning Q + P for R + B.} 14.Bxe5 {This is not necessary and frees the Black bishop. Alternatives include} (14.Rac1) (14.Qa7!?) 14...dxe5 15.Bc2? {Better is} (15.a3) 15...Bb4 (15...Bc5!? 16.Qg3 0-0) 16.Rd3 0-0 17.a3 Bxc3 18.Rxc3 Rxc3 19.bxc3 Rc8 20.Ra2 h6 21.Qa7 b5 22.Qb7 Rxc3 23.Qb8+ Kh7 24.Qxe5 Rxa3 25.Rb2 Qe1+ 26.Kh2 Qxf2 27.Qd6 {Setting me up for the kill. Black is three pawns up and actually sees the discovered check. With a full minute on the clock plus 5-seconds per move delay, I spent just a couple of seconds "assessing" ...Ng4+ as a perpetual, and huriedly played} 27...Re3?? (27...Ng4+! 28.hxg4 Qh4+ 29.Kg1 Ra1+! 30.Bb1 Qe1+ 31.Kh2 Rxb1 32.Rxb1 Qxb1 33.Qxa6 b4) 28.e5+ {No, the knight cannot block at e4. Black loses the queen or gets mated. 1-0 (T)}
