"The most intelligent inspection of any number of fine paintings will not make the observer a painter, nor will listening to a number of operas make the hearer a musician, but good judges of music and painting may so be formed. Chess differs from these. The intelligent perusal of fine games cannot fail to make the reader a better player and a better judge of the play of others."

Emanuel Lasker

The Chess Express: <<Big Pawn: <the chess express> These are the kinds of positions I was talking about in the exchange French. Opening Explorer >> Thanks for the suggestions. I think I'll become more comfortable with the exchange once I study it more.

The Chess Express: After 15. d5 Akopian must have missed the simple 15. ... Qxd5 [DIAGRAM] 16. Be4 Qg5 17. Bc6 Ke7 18. Bxd7 Rxd7 19. Rxd7+ Kxd7 20. Qxf7+ Kc8 21. Qxe6+ Kb8 = [DIAGRAM] White has no advantage. Another try was 15. Qb7 Qf4 16. Qxa7 h6 17. g3 Qd6 ...
 
   Jun-12-17 T Nyback vs C Balogh, 2001
 
The Chess Express: Interesting game. In this line where black voluntarily takes white's Nf3 to play e5 I think it's unnecessary and slow to play 5. ... c6. I would prefer to play for e5 ... e4 more rapidly: 1. Nf3 Nf6 2. b3 d5 3. Bb2 Bg4 4. e3 Nbd7 5. Be2 <Bxf3> 6. Bxf3 ...

The Chess Express: Black was better after the opening, but the position was complicated. 18. ... Nbc6 was an unnecessary retreat. After 18. Nb3 <d3> 19. Qd2 Ng6 [DIAGRAM] The complications favor black. For example if 20. Qxb4 Nxf4 21. Qd2 Ng6 22. Nc5 Qc6 23. Nxd3 Rfd8 ...

The Chess Express: Black's troubles started with 8. ... Qb6. In this line 8. a4 Qd8 is necessary and good. See P Haba vs Degraeve, 2007 when after 8.a4 Qd7 9.dxc5 Bxc5 10.b4 Bb6 11.a5 Bc7 12.O-O Ne7 13.Bf4 Nbc6 14.Qe2 a6 15.Rd1 O-O 16.Nbd2 d4
