  al wazir: This isn't a very good game. It isn't much of a pun either.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Yet another crash & Burn for 4.dxe4. Sometimes I think that even a silly gambit like 5.f3?! would work against this passive defense.

  mike1: yes, black is just dropping pawns....
but without 12... Nc5 his position is not that bad. 12... e5 and then Nc5.

  Once: Maybe not a great game, but a workmanlike, efficient, good-day-in-the-office sort of game. White makes three very similar petit combinations to punish loose play by black. Each time black leaves a piece undefended, white capitalises.

First, 12...Nc5? (unprotected) is punished by 13. Bxh7+ followed by Qh5+. Wins the h pawn.

Second, 25...Qf6 leaves the Bb7 undefended. White jumps in with 26. Nxe6+, because 26...fe allows Rd7+ picking up the Bb7. 26...Qxe6 27. Qxe6 ends up the same way. Wins the e pawn.

Thirdly, 27...Rh4? allows 28. Nxf7 opening up the possibility of f5+ and a lethal mating attack.

White didn't do anything brilliant to win this game. He developed solidly, doubled his rooks on the open file and used mini tactics to exploit errors by his opponent. I like to think that games like this are more relevant to us humble woodpushers than the all-time great games, because they are closer to the stuff that we play and play against.

So maybe not one for the collection of greatest games ever, but useful learning all the same.

Jul-30-10  jussu: I think 4... dxe4 is doing fine and there is no reason to call it passive; this is actually the line which has made 4. e5 more popular than 4. Bg5. Blundering a pawn does not help, though.

  kevin86: The attack actually short curcuited the counter-attack in its tracks.
Jul-30-10  freedy1: It's from a Slick Rick song.

  Chessmensch: Many easy-to-find inaccuracies in this game. Every one I checked was confirmed by Fritz. In fact, some of the moves are not even among Fritz's top five choices.
Jul-30-10  screwdriver: I agree, that the loose play by black was severely punished by white. Solid win though, nothing to be ashamed of.
Jul-30-10  GlennOliver: 27. f5 was possibly stronger.
Jul-30-10  Oceanlake: 6. ... gf is thematic
Jul-30-10  SpiritedReposte: Yes definately slick rick the ruler. Snoop dog "borrowed" the opening line. Amazing how new things are just old forgotten things.

  ajile: The name of this game should be Fork You.

White picks up a bunch of pawns with simple fork threats.
