May-19-07  amuralid: Instructive game. I loved the moves:

14. Nd5: White should have been able to see this before playing 12. Bd6. This is one place where in a real game I may have left the initiative pass away.

17. Rd2: Easy to see but amazing how all the pieces co-ordinate to protext each other.

20. c4: I did not see this. Its a great way for white to maintain the initiative. It suddenly introduces a positional weakness in Black i.e., the open c-file with black's Q in front of his K.

23. Qh2: White swings his queen from the a-file to the h-file and it does a lot of things, make an instant threat, pin the rook, protect g2.

I am not sure if at the club level players can find these sort of moves to maintain continuous pressure.
