JACK RUDD ANALYSES
1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 c6!?
The Czech Pirc, a good opening to play against unprepared opponents.
4.f4 Qa5 5.e5
is the critical line.
5...Ne4 6.Qf3 d5 7.Bd3 Na6 8.Nge2
intending ....Bf5 and ...Nb4.
wins the rook in the corner.
9...Nxd3 10.cxd3 Nxc3 11.bxc3 g6 12.g4?

Leaving White's kingside advances firing at nothing.

Forcing a complete opening of the kingside.
17.f5 gxf5 18.gxf5 Bh6 19.Qg3 Rh8! 20.Bxh6
20...R4xh6 21.Rae1 Qd8
Pushing White's pieces into a horrible pin on the g-file.
22...Rg8 23.Ng3 Rh4 24.Re3 Rhg4 25.Rff3
Transferring defensive duties to the rooks with the aim of possibly freeing the queen.
Bringing the bishop around to d1 with the decisive effect.
26.e6 fxe6 27.fxe6 Bxa4 28.Re5
And White soon runs out of checks.
28...cxd4 29.cxd4 Bd1 30.Rfe3 Qf8 31.Rxd5
wins - the threat of Rxg3+ is a killer.
