Moser in Unusual Chess Opening

Years ago I had a little pamphlet on the Queens Knight Attack by G. Moser entitled “1.Sc3”. The German Sc3 equals the English notation Nc3. “Springer” is the German chess term for “Knight.” This pamphlet published in 1987 gave games and analysis on the Queens Knight Attack 1.Nc3. As I recall it had some original material. The book was about 60 pages in length. In the game below Black is listed as Goetz Moser. He played the Queens Knight Defence with 1…Nc6 against G. Moersch which began 1.e4 Nc6 2.g3 Nf6 3.Bg2 e5. I do not know how strong these players were.

Moersch - Moser, BRD-ch Tuebingen 1985 begins 1.e4 Nc6 2.g3 Nf6 3.Bg2 e5 4.d3 Bc5 5.Nf3 d6 6.0-0 h6 [6...a5 7.Nc3 0-0=] 7.c3 Bg4 [7...a5 8.d4 Ba7 9.Be3 Ng4=] 8.h3 Bh5 9.Qe2 Bb6 10.Be3 Qd7 11.Nbd2 g5 [11...0-0=] 12.g4 Bg6 13.Bxb6 [13.b4 h5 14.b5 Na5=/+] 13...axb6 14.d4 h5 15.dxe5 hxg4 16.exf6 [16.hxg4 dxe5 17.Nxg5 Qxg4 18.Qxg4 Nxg4=/+] 16...gxh3! 17.Nxg5 [Hugh Myers gave 17.Bh1 Qg4+ 18.Kh2 Qf4+ 19.Kg1 h2+ 20.Kg2 (20.Nxh2 Qxh2#) 20...Qg4#] 17...hxg2 18.Kxg2 Ra5 19.f4
