Welcome to my Gedult-Gunderam game with Glen Jackson page!
On this page I have posted one my chess games in which I played the White side of the Gedult-Gunderam Opening.
This is an unorthodox opening that gave many of my opponents fits. The game includes analysis and diagrams. This was a non-rated game played in the Giessen area recreation center.
Giessen Area Championship
12 April 1986
White: Mike Serovey Black: Glen Jackson
1. d4 Nf6 2. f3 e6 3. g4 d5 4. Bf4 Nbd7 5. e3 c5 6. c3 cxd4 7. cxd4 Bb4+ 8. Kf2 O-O
This really isn’t as bad for White as it looks! This position is “book”.
9. Bd3 Re8 10. h4 Nf8 11. Ne2 Ng6 12. Bg3 Bd6
Still “book” and White is Ok to exchange Bishops here. White plays a rather aggressive Kingside attack.
13. h5 Bxg3+ 14. Nxg3 Nf8 15. Nc3 e5
Now White has completed his development and can press the Kingside attack.
16. g5 exd4 17. exd4 Ng4+?
An unsound sacrifice. White holds.
18. fxg4 Qxg5 19. Nf5! Bxf5 20. Bxf5 Qf4+ 21. Kg2 Re3 22. Rh3 Rae8 23. Rf3
Now Black has no attack left and White is OK after the exchange.
Rxf3 24. Qxf3 Qxd4 (The isolated d Pawn will fall later.) 25. Rd1 Qb6 26. Qf2 Qc6 27. Kg1 g6 28. hxg6 hxg6 29. Bc2 Qe6 30. Qd4 Re7 31. Nxd5
I’m up a Bishop for a Pawn and Black has no attack left.
Qe2?? (Loses the exchange.) 32. Nxe7+ Qxe7(Now I’m up a whole Rook! Why did he make me play this one out?) 33. Bb3 (Now I put pressure on f7.) Qc7 34. Kg2 Qe7 35. Rf1 Ne6 36. Qxa7 Ng5 37. Qb8+ Kg7 38. Qf4 Ne6? 39. Qe5+! Kg8 40. Bxe6 fxe6 41. Rf6 1-0
Many a Pawn has to fall. But, it’s all in the game.
