Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-06-10  Wayne Proudlove: 20...Neg8? allows White to display the power of his d3-Bishop. 20...Rf8 would be a better way of putting extra defense on f7.
Nov-08-10  Wayne Proudlove: I would prefer playing 9.Nbd2 since stopping 9...Nb4 is less important than stopping 9...Ne4. After 9.Nbd2 Nb4, White can just retreat his Bishop (10.Be2) and kick the Knight away later. If Black plays 10...Qc7, it turns out White is fine after either 11.a3 or 11.c4, the latter threatening to open the c-file and attack the Queen with Rc1.-Rudel
Nov-08-10  Wayne Proudlove: 13...Rfe8 (Black is alert to the danger to his King, so he starts a defensive plan with a Queen to g7.)
Nov-08-10  Wayne Proudlove: Moves 11-21: White begins to fill up the Kingside space he has made for himself prior to any exchanges.

Black didn't have any counterplay against White's set-up.
