Nice defensive play!

  tpstar: This is a good line for Black against the Scotch Four Knights = liquidate the doubled Pawn (7 ... d5) without trading ... Bxc3, then reinforce the Pd5 (10 ... c6). 15. cxd3!? strikes me as surprising, especially with the follow-up 16. d4 creating a gaping hole at e4. Perhaps White wanted to use the half open c file to attack the backward Pc6, but the Kingside action took priority. Black held everything together while avoiding the trap 30 ... Qg7?? 31. Rxh7 Qxg6 32. fxg6 and White is up the exchange.
Feb-04-12  RookFile: Black showed some cold blooded defense in this game.
