|McAuliffe - Goeller, Kenilworth CC Ch. 2011|
Black to play.
I have annotated the game McAuliffe - Goeller, Kenilworth 2011, from the first round of the 21st Annual Kenilworth Chess Club Championship. I have had two previous games against Dr. Geoffrey McAuliffe, both of which were quite interesting: in the 2005 club championship and the 2008 summer tourney. The present game went well for me and should help build my confidence going forward. I got to play my favorite Black Fianchetto System in the Open Games (see Part One and Part Two), which has turned out to be a very solid system and a great fit with the King's Indian against d4. John Moldovan has posted all of the games from Round One along with a crosstable. John and I are scheduled to play next week in the "battle of the bloggers."
