  catlover: White lost the initiative with 10. a4 (maybe 10. h3 would have been better). But the really ominous move was 13. Qd4. Maybe it's only coincidence that it was the THIRTEENTH move.

  ChessHigherCat: Fantastic game! I don't know the theory but it looks very innovative to me starting from move 10.
Apr-14-17  Strelets: <ChessHigherCat> The Grünfeld is all about giving White the center in order to destroy it. 10...c5 breaks up the central pawns and allows Black to develop his light-squared bishop with gain of tempo. Sacrificing the queen's rook on its initial square is a tactical device that Grünfeld players might recognize from other lines, the D82 1.c4 g6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 d5 4.Bf4 Bg7 5.e3 c5!? Grünfeld being a good example. By the way, love your avatar.

  ChessHigherCat: <Strelets> The arrow? Thanks for the explanation, that's very helpful. I didn't know 10..c5 was book. 15...Rd8 strikes me as very classy, instead of 15...cxd2, like most players would have done. 15...Qxc5 would have been inferior, too, because of Ne4, right? I'm glad you like the avatar. It's not really Sunday but it seems like it is with everything closed for Easter, so what the hell, a bit of poetic license:
