Playing down the right flank

 Miles Patterson sent me the following game from the 2022 Tasmanian Championship, which he finished in first place. His opponent opened with a double fianchetto defence, which gave White time to launch a typicla dark square attack on the king, swapping the bishop on g7 and pushing the h pawn. g4 to break open the kingside was a good move, and Nxf7 both won material, and essentially finished the game, although Black played on to mate.

Hi Shaun - probably the first game Miles has played where he didn't move his c pawn
