I think the game just is not important. It's played at an EUch U14; Black playes Nc6-e7-c6; White's knight on g3 and bishop on e3 do not look very happy. So between 8.d3 and 16.f5 quite a few deviations are possible. Begin to look at 9...Be6 and 12.Be3.

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

Dynamic English variation question.

I recently received my copy of Tony Kosten's "The Dynamic English" from Amazon and have found it to be just an excellent book, and one surprisingly thick with analysis. I've been entering the moves into Chess Position Trainer (for my own use only) and stumbled onto this variation (game below) that Tony mentions on page 30 quoting Hanley-Rozic to move 16 f5 and saying that White won quickly.

I clicked on the analysis engine (Shredder in this case) expecting to see a quick finish, only to have it immediately give up the g3 Knight for White. After much puzzlement I see that instead of Black's way too cooperative 16 . . . gxf5 Shredder found 16 . . . h5 threatening a nasty check on g4, winning the Knight on g3 and forcing White to go for a draw by repetition after "16... h5 17. Kg1 Qxg3 18. Rf3 Qh4 19. Bf2 Qg5 20. Be3 Qh4 21. Bf2 Qg5 22. Be3 Qh4"

I thought 17. Qe1 protecting both the Bishop and Knight might salvage things but "17. Qe1 Ng4+ 18. Kh1 Nxe3 19. Qxe3 Bxd4" isn't pretty for White either. Earlier in the game Tony mentions that 9. d4 rather than 9. d3 is "possible and good". Should White revert back to that instead of d3 or is there something I'm missing?  Thanks.

1. c4 Nf6 2. Nc3 g6 3. g3 Bg7 4. Bg2 O-O 5. e4 d6 6. Nge2 e5 7. O-O Nc6 8. d3 h6 9. f4 Ne7 10. h3 exf4 11. gxf4 Re8 12. Ng3 Nc6 13. d4 Nh7 14. Be3 Qh4 15. Kh2 Nf6 16. f5 gxf5 17. Nxf5 Bxf5 18. Rxf5 Nd7 19. Nd5 Qd8 20. Qh5 Rf8 21. Bxh6 f6 22. Bxg7 Kxg7 23. Bf3 Rg8 24. Rg1+ Kf8 25. Qh6+ 1-0
