Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-13-10  SamAtoms1980: This is the third game in the book "How to Think Ahead in Chess" by Reinfeld & Horowitz, where the opening moves are given as 1 d4 d5 2 e3 Bf5 3 c4 c6 4 Nf3 Nf6. Black plays 2 ... Bf5 to quell the Stonewall Attack, and the game transposes into a Slav (before the opening was called that).

Black could have grabbed a small initiative with 8 ... Nc6! Even a move later, after 9 ... Nc6 10 Bxc6+ bxc6 11 Qxb6 axb6 12 Nxc6 Rc8! and Black has enough compensation for the pawn to make it an even game (if 13 Na7 Rc4).

Out of the opening Black tried too hard to castle. With the simple 12 ... Qd8 Black could have followed with 13 ... O-O and stayed out of trouble. 13 ... Qd8 was Black's last chance to stay out of the hole, and at move 21, in an already sunk game, he got wrapped up by the threat of Nd6 and left an exchange hanging.
