Aug-02-14  optimal play: McKenzie wins a miniature as Black playing the Sicilian.

After White blunders with d3?? Blacks wins immediately with a clever Queen move!

Just like M Bruere vs McKenzie, 1991

<optimal play>
Two black wins in 10 moves or less in a correspondence tournament (and an Australian Championship at that!) is a pretty unusual feat.

  fredthebear: If 11.Kf2?? Qe3#. 11.Kd2?? steps into a similar problem. To continue, White needs to interpose on the open e-file, dropping material. Resignation was certainly in order.
