Layla beats Russell in style

I simply have to share this game.

It's the first time 15-year-old Layla Timergazi has beaten IM Russell Dive in a standard length game, and she does it with considerable panache. Well done Layla!

Not surprisingly, she was smiling from ear to ear when she came out of the club room.

  1. A really great win by Layla. I had noticed the variation given to Layla's 15th move and thought that not taking on f6 was a serious let off for Russell. Also the note 16... seemed like he had serious counter-play, but Layla had better control there than I observed at the time. 19.g4 is stunning.
