  patzer2: Black's 12...Nxd5? allows White's strong 13. Qxb7! , which is the beginning of the end for Black in this game.

With 19. Rhe1!, White initiates a winning pin to win the pinned Knight after 20. Rxd5+ Ke8 21. Rc5! .

  patzer2: After 12...exd5 =, Black should survive.
Nov-21-07  think: 19 with White to play would make a good subtle puzzle. It was that move that clinched the game for White.
Nov-21-07  newzild: A nice game by the New Zealander.
It surprised me at first, because the white queen busts open lines over white's own king. Muzza musta had it all worked out when he played Qxb7.

  playground player: It's always nice when your opponent gives you a gift like not castling. Meanwhile, call me old-fashioned, but I've never been comfortable with the idea of trading an e-pawn for a b-pawn.

  kevin86: Thos game is like a western:round up the wild stallion.

The horse is lost-the game is over.

Nov-21-07  drpoundsign: I'm a low intermedieate and I castle!

it's just like wearing a seatbelt

white's play prevents black from castling after move 12. Great prophylactic play by white. I think there is probably a better alternative than 9...Nb6

I dont really care for 8...Bxf3. Black trades down his LSB, and leaves whites LSB, the strong bishop in the Panov. Whites LSB comes to b5 on move 14, where it stays for the rest of the game.
