  THE pawn: What annotations?

  Eric Schiller: Not much to say about the game. I more or less played like an idiot, tossing pawns and hoping for an attack that never materialized. 9,f5? was simply premature, and afte 9.c3 instead I would have had a small advantage thanks to controlling more space. In fact, c3 would have been an improvement at move 10 and 11, too. By move 12, my position was simply awful. and by move 15 I was simply lost.

When I sent Chessgames my gamefile, many games just have a couple of ? or ! (same with Ray Keene's) but the binary switch "annotated" is flipped on whenever such things appear.

May-23-14  jerseybob: With his early moves black seems determined to enter the Pirc-Robatsch, regardless of what white plays. I'd prefer 3..c5, although it may not be objectively better, but 4..Nf6 definitely looks bad, allowing white to kick the knight from pillar to post. I agree with Schiller's suggested 9.c3, after which black may be able to survive by working around the edges, but it wouldn't be easy.
