Jul-18-12  kevinatcausa: Between this game and V Bradley vs J Bath, 1978 , it seems like Columbus in the late '70s was a good place to be on the White side of the Exchange variation.

  FSR: I won the same game in the last round of the 1977 Illinois High School Team Championship. My opponent played on after Qh5+, but of course I won.
