  offramp: It an odd ending.


click for larger view

Black went backwards with 13...Be7. White went all the way back with 14.Bc1. Black put his queen back on the square she had just escaped from 14...Qa1. White then retreated with 15.Qc2 and Black called it a day.

Oct-10-16  YetAnotherAmateur: <offramp> Not that odd.

13. ... Be7 Black doesn't have a lot of options at this point. If he doesn't move his bishop, he drops it, and white still has the black queen neatly hemmed in.

14. ... Qa1 is obvious enough: The queen is threatened, and has nowhere else she can go. 15. Qc2 isn't a retreating move, but sealing the attack on the queen. 16. Bb2 is coming, and there's absolutely nothing black can do about it.

Games like this are why most instructors tell kids not to bring out their queen early.

  kevin86: White develops both bishops while black 's queen is trapped in the corner. Black tries to escape but gets trapped for good. The news is bad!

  Infohunter: That early foray of the Queen into the opponent's Queen Rook corner seldom ends well for the side conducting it.
Oct-10-16  wtpy: Morfishine,13..Ba3 14 Nbd2 threatening 15 Nc4 and Rb1 looks strong to me.
