Apr-27-05  Jaymthegenius: WOW! This game was so good! I would play 7...Nd7, but this is weaker then played in the game, as in the game a GM playes 7...Qe8! from now on I too will play Qe8!

Here is a dutch game of mine:

1. d4 f5
2. c4 Nf6
3. Nc3 d6
4. Bg5 Nbd7
5. e3 h6 (forcing the exchange or gaining kingside sace with Bh4,g5) 6. Bxf6 Nxf6
7. Nd5 e5 (Hoping for Nxd5, but I rather create my own play) 8. dxe5 dxe5
9. Nxf6+? Qxf6 (Nxf6+ was a mistake, I went on to win without trouble) 10. Nf3 e4
11. Nd4 Bb4+ (ALWAY'S hinder the opponent's ability to castle while white can do nothing about it, as no knight or pawn can go to c3) 12. Ke2 []O-O (castling is forced in order not to be down on material) 13. Qa4 c5
14. Nc2 Qxb2
15. a3 f4
16. axb4 Rd8 ( I contemplated deeply as to "is this sound? It lead to forced mate so it turn's out it was) 17. Qa2 Qc3
18. Rd1 f3+
19. gxf3 exf3+
20. Kxf3 Qf6+
21. Ke2 Bg4+ 0-1 and white resigned, seeing mate in two.
