The players are bemused by the fragrance of the blossoming trees and the odor of the gaudy flowers that they require one full hour for every move.
Spike laughed aloud and said in a heavy english accent,
"Call all you like, maybe name your team the soddin' Nightstalkers or
whatever, I already had Junior for dinner, you will be next!" Movei
is speechless but bravely stands his ground as the fearsome vampire bares his
fangs. (Spike text by Lex Domingo)
1.e4 e5 2.Sf3 Sc6 3.Sc3 Sf6 4.Lb5 Lb4 5.0-0 0-0 6.d3 d6 7.Lg5 Lxc3 8.bxc3 h6 9.Lh4 a6 10.Lxc6 bxc6 11.d4 g5
"So why not just grab this cheeky knight", Movei thinks, frowning more and more the longer he thinks over the position. "What do you think, kiddy?" But Junior seems absent-minded playing with a stick and some bugs that are crawling through the sand. "Oh dear, where is Boris Alterman? I really need help now!"
Instead a mighty warrior clad in blue armor shows up. Everybody stared at the newcomer and a guy in the arena whispered "Is that the invincible Achilles?" To which the stranger replied: "No, I am SMK, many regard me as the champion and number 1. I will help Movei with this vampire." Hope filled Movei instantly. "What do you think about this critical position? I think I will take the knight, is that okay?". SMK submerged deep into the position and replied: "Wait, or are you prone to suicidal tendencies? Take away your claws from that piece.
Movei continues to think:
12...hg5: (17ply -1.61) 13.Bg5: exd4 14.Qf3 Kg7 (this looks awful)
but after 50 minutes changed his mind....12...Ne4: (-1.31) will there be hope?)
and SMK agrees: "Yes, 12...Ne4:, the cheeky knight will then retreat to f3 and 13...Qd7 or 13...f6 should leave us with some hope to escape".
12...Ne4: (22-03 -1.05) 13.Nf3 f6 14.Qe2 Ng5
While the heat in the garden is becoming unbearable Movei is tearing his hair desperately as Spike taunts him: "Take your bloody time, Spike is on your heels, baby. And sooner or later, I'm gonna catch you".
His thoughts and analyses changing constantly from 13..Ng5 to 13..f6, back to 13...Ng5, then preferring 13...Qd7, just to find that after that move 14.Re1 Qg4 15.de5: Re8 16.ed6: is still unpleasant. So back to 13..Ng5 calculating again 14.Bg5: hg5: 15.de5: g4 16.Nd4 de5: (or even 16...c5)
In the meantime Spike is chatting with Junior, telling him vampire stories to distract him, so that he canīt help. "I did a couple of slayers in my time. I don't like to brag. Who am I kidding? I love to brag. One time, during the Boxer Rebellion " In the shadows of a huge birch we are seeing an obviously personality split woman flirting with SMK, who seems to be attracted and fascinated by the combination of warts and bloodred lipstick.
The kiddy approaches the board and Movei grumbles: "So, here is what finally seems best, have a look...."
13...Ng5 (17 -0.88) 14.Bg5: hg5: 15.de5: g4 16.Nd4 de5: 17.Nc6 Qf6 18.Nb4 Bf5
Junior covertly looks around if a referee might be present, but there seems to be none. So he opens a big bag and drags out his notebook containing multiple CPU power and RAM even hydras seeing it would go green with envy. With nimble finger the kid switches to multivariation mode and gives the following:
13...Ng5 (19 -0.91) 14.Bg5: hg5: 15.de5: g4 16.Nd2
13...Qe8 (19 -1.18) 14.Re1 Bf5 15.Qd3 f6 16.de5:
13...f6 (19 -1.21) 14.Qd3 Bf5 15.Nd2 Nd2: 16.Qf5:
13...Qd7 (19 -1.28) 14.Qd3 Qg4 15.de5:
Hearing the SOS calls from Movei, SMK is trying to get rid of the enchantment from Brujatrace and finally comes up with his opinion after thinking for four hours:
13...f6 (24-01 -0.92) 14.Nd2 Nd2: 15.Qd2: Qd7 16.Qh6:
13...Ng5 (24-01 -1.21) 14.Bg5: hg5: 15.de5: g4 16.Nd2
13...Qe8 (24-01 -1.46) 14.Re1 f5 15.de5: Qh5 16.c4
13...Qd7 (24-01 -1.50) 14.de5: Qg4 15.Re1 Bf5 16.h3
"So you think 13...f6 is best and not 13...Ng5"..."hmm, this is tricky now".
"It is still not easy", the confused reporter dares to interrupt. "To me it seems that after 13...f6 14.Qe2!? white has still some edge, for example":
14...Bf5 15.de5: de5: 16.Ne5: Qd2 17.Qd2: Nd2: 18.Rfd1 fe5: 19.Rd2:
or 14...Ng5: 15.Bg5: hg5: 16.Qc4+ Kg7 17.Qc6:
"On the other hand after 14..Ng5 15.Bg5: hg5: 16.de5: g4 17.Nd2 or 17.Nd4 Blackīs position is also unpleasant."
Looking for some refreshment of the sweltering heat Brujatrace is searching a shady place in the Generalife, curiously watching the running game.
Attentively hearing all the analyses, she babbles: "Hm, yes...I like the idea to preserve the knight after f6 more than changing it - if I was white, I would try to keep up advantage by looking for tactical threats, so I wouldnīt like to exchange pieces."
"Qd3 seems to be an active alternative, is there any possibility to avoid the exchange of knights here, too, like 15.Rfe1?", She asks for help of all the experts in the garden. As Qe2 allows Ng5, she keeps on to fancy Qd3, realising,that it is too stiflingly hot today for some careful consideration.
"Tempo, tempo, Spike, donīt give him time for consolidation!" she mumbles while refreshing with divine nectar, settling back, waiting relaxed for some more interesting explanations.
Spikeīs move after 15...f6, but he also seems to be confused now crying out loud: "Two souls are residing in my breast....".
The spectators could here the whispering:
14.Qe2 (18.06 0.60) Ng5 15.Bg5: hg5: 16.Qc4+ Kg7 17.Qc6: Bf5 gives a slight edge
No, another voice contradicts:
14.de5: (19-01 0.74) de5: 15.Qd8: Rd8: 16.Ne5: Rd6 17.Nc4 Re6 18.Bg3 Nc3: 19.Bc7:
"Oh no, not exchanging Queens now", Brujatrace protests. "This would be boring".
But: 15.Qd8: (22-07 0.73) 15...Rd8: 16.Ne5: Rd6 17.Bg3 Ng3: 18.fg3:
After 16.Ne5: SMK after one hour comes up with the following:
16...Rd6 (23-01 -0.66) 17.Nc4 Re6 18.Bg3 Nc3:
16...Rd5 (23-01 -0.89) 17.Nc6 Rd6 18.Rfe1 Nc3:
16...Rd2 (23-01 -0.89) 17.Nc6: Rd6 18.Rfe1 Nc3:
16...Nc3: (23-01 -0.90) 17.Bf6: Rd2 18.Nc6: Ne2+
Having all this apparently favourable positions in mind Spike starts to dance around in the garden having delusions of grandeur and shouts out loud:"Take whatever line you want I will destroy all of you like the great Gary Buffoon. Junior will be the appetizer, Movei the maincourse and I will have SMK for dessert!"
"Bah, you are nothing else than a megalomaniac"
