  Penguincw: Great lashing out move of 18...g5. Only move that keeps Caruana's advantage.

White resigns before black can reply.

Another fine addition to my game collection, Game Collection: Surrendering without firing a shot.

Apr-29-18  Ulhumbrus: 8 Ng5 looks like a completely unsound attack

8...h6 disturbs the king side pawns. 8...Be7 attacks the knight whilst getting another piece out.

With 9 Nh3 the knight has lost two moves to place itself on the rim. This is a sign that the opening has gone badly wrong for White

11 f5 looks like another unsound attempt to attack

One possible meaning of 18...g5 is that White is unable to play a knight to f5.
