May-04-04  shr0pshire: I submitted this game. ;)

1. b4! This is the Orangatung. Laphsun plays the orangatung and this deserves an exlcamation point, becuase most won't be booked up on it. A fine choice by Lapshun.

3. Qc1!? A cool move to allow the development of the E pawn, and to give some more protection to the C pawn.

It is an interesting choice to keep this posiiton closed. Usually the Orangatung is noted for it's tactial choice, and it is unusual to keep it closed. Also as he closes the position up, be blocks his dark colored bishop, making it bad.

Also, since Lapshun kept the position closed, his knights were golden, working with each other, to finally set up....

27. dxd5! allowing the skewer, and Lapshun to essentially go up a minor piece.

Great job Lapshun, I love his attacking style and unusual openings!

May-06-04  northernsoul: I love b4, followed by e3 to open up the white bishop and b5, to make black's Q side quite congested...

  RayFchess: You don't have to 'book' up on unusual openings. If you play sound developmental strategy then you can get a good opening against it. Just don't panic and keep looking for good solid moves.

  kevin86: A nice opening sequence:the closed game bottles up black's counter on the queenside.

The only pity is that black's move on 33 was h6 instead of h5-otherwise,we would have twelve pawns on the board-all on opposite colored squares! He would have probably drawn with it.

May-06-04  SADDAM: i wonder if 17.b5 is better than the the played a4. With idea to block off the queenside completely and play on the kingside where black has some advantage. Also c6 wouldnt become a target as it did in the game.
Nov-04-12  shakman: 22. Nxe6 or 23. Nxe6 isn't possible? Some trap there?
