{ This game is between Nitin Kanuri and Arvind Manohar.  At the end of our 3 day camp, we hold a tournament.  These 2 players will likely meet again.  Nitin chooses an opening that he and I have been working on called the Philidor in Reverse.  Arvind responds with the typical 4 knights set up.  The game remains even for some time.  As the game becomes more complicated, both players miss their chance to do some damage.  At move 22 an instructive set of moves is missed and it for that instruction that this game was selected } 1.Nf3 Nc6 2.c3 e5 3.d3 Nf6 4.Qc2 d5 5.Nbd2 Be7 6.e4 O-O 7.Be2 b6 8.Nf1 Ba6 9.Ng3 dxe4 10.dxe4 Bxe2 11.Qxe2 Qd7 12.O-O Rfe8 13.Bd2 ( 13.Rd1 Bd6 14.Bg5 Qe6 { Here Blacks position was becoming a little loose and white could have a slight advantage after any of the following moves. } 15.Bxf6 ( 15.Nf5 ) ( 15.h3 ) ( 15.a4 ) ( 15.Qa6 ) ) 13…Rad8 14.Rfd1 Bd6 15.Be3 Qc8 16.Qc4 Na5 17.Qe2 Bc5 18.Bd2 Bd6 19.Nf5 Nh5 20.N3h4 Qb7?? { Ouch!!
