A38 Symmetrical English vs ...g6: 4.Bg2 Bg7 5.Nf3 Nf6 (1.c4 c5 2.Nc3 g6 3.g3 Bg7 4.Bg2 Nc6 5.Nf3 Nf6 6.O-O O-O 7.d3 d5 8.cxd5 Nxd5 9.Nxd5 Qxd5 10.Ng5 Qd6 11.Ne4)

The full opening line could not be found in the LiveBook. I think this was the second time it has happened in the analysis of my games. This is the 26th game in my series of 106 games that I played in 2016 at Chess.com. This quick loss meant that the score was 17 - 9 in my favor after the game. After my huge blunder 11...Qd5 and seeing the reply 12.Nf6+, there was no point of continuing the game, so I resigned.
