Taking the path well travelled

In Correspondence Chess, access to books and databases is pretty important. Certainly in almost every CC game I play, I will utilise both Chessbase and whatever opening books I have in my library, to improve my chances of winning. Sometimes this means that the game you play may only involve a few moves of original thought before getting a decisive advantage, or, as in the case of the following game, no original thought at all.

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6 6.Nxc6 bxc6 7.e5 Ng8 8.Bc4 e6 9.0-0 Bc5 10.Ne4 Bb6 11.Qg4 g6 12.Bg5 Qc7 13.Nd6+ Kf8 14.Qf4 f5 15.Qh4 h6 16.Be7+ Nxe7 17.Qf6+ Kg8 18.Qf7#

The whole game, up until move 16, had been played back in 1980, with J. Franklin Campbell defeating Lee Jerger.
