May-05-14  Nerwal: Strange transposition with an extra move to a position normally arising from the move orders 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 exd5 4. ♘f3 ♗d6 5. c4 dxc4 6. ♗xc4 ♘f6 7. 0-0 0-0 8. ♘c3 ♘c6 9. h3 h6, or 1. d4 d5 2. c4 dxc4 3. e3 e5 4. ♗xc4 exd4 5. exd4 ♘f6 6. ♘f3 ♗d6 and so on.

13... ♘xd4!? is a very interesting idea trying to solve the problems at once (instead, Finegold shows a game of his with 13... ♘d5 in this video :, but usually the standard of play of his opponents in those lessons is quite low and this game is no exception). It's impressive to see it was played as far back as 1904. It's also easier for a modern player to find this ressource than it was back then, because we've seen this pattern with hanging pieces at c4 and h4 forked by a queen at least once (Denker vs Botvinnik, 1945).

Maybe 16... ♔xf7!? is more solid than 16... ♖xf7, since white cannot take on b7 then (16... ♔xf7 17. ♘f5 ♕c5 18. ♘e3 c6 =). 17... ♖af8 is also interesting instead of 17... ♖ff8 keeping the opportunity to play along b file. Black seems to have decent compensation for the pawn in these last two cases, but he has to play quite precisely to develop the initiative.

22. ♖d4 is of course a terrible blunder, but maybe white got over-concerned about the attacking possibilities 22. ♘f3 ♖xf3 and 22. ♕a4 ♘f4 and then just forgot the check.
