  Chessical: Surtees seems to play these type of systems with early c3/6, f3/6 and the N's developed to f2/7, as either Black or White. He looks for complications and novelty forcing the players have to think rather than simply remember.

His non-theoretical approach is refreshing in the style of Suttles or Day.

<12...e5> 13.f5 (13.fxe5 Nxe5 14.cxb5 Qxb5) 13...b4 14.Qh5 a5 lookks fine for Black. His <12...Ba6> idea, however appears too slow.

<20...Nxd3> 21.Bxh6 Rxg7? is a mate in 3: 22.Nf6+ Kh8 23.Bd2+ Rh7 24.Qxh7#; Black's position is completely punctured.
