NO! This is just a position from my pre game opening prep... Qc7 is the theoretical move, but I think Qb6 might be stronger... At least the move is very interesting...

  kwid: <truefriends: NO! This is just a position from my pre game opening prep... Qc7 is the theoretical move, but I think Qb6 might be stronger... At least the move is very interesting...>

As per my preliminary assessment I rate them about equal.

One would need to assess the degree of complexity obtainable from them first. And then take time to construct lines trying to reach endgame positions and or sidestep easy draw opportunities from lower rated players.

I have aged a lot of late getting faster tired and thus confronted to set priority for my time management for other things to do.

As to the move assessment of Qc7 versus Qb6 it would take me at least 2 hours to come up with my first draft.

Then it would need time for reflection of derived assessment as to probability or impact on the opponent as well as searching for alternate move choices at various junctions and accuracy of evaluations verification or plunder checking.

I still think that engines have difficulties to assess certain position correctly especially if they get confronted to look at alternatives with temporarily negative values because of their horizon limit. Human can mislead them with lines composed of up to 300 points which is expressed as the value of a minor piece.

  truefriends: < RandomVisitor: <truefriends>Komodo at low ply likes Qc7>

Yes... with my settings it changes to <Qb6> at 28 ply and deeper...

But Stockfish gives <Qc7> as the best move...

If you play trough the games the eval gets to around +1 in a few moves after <Qc7>... So that's why I am looking for a novelty...

  truefriends: <kwid> The final point of this story is I have played <9.h4> before with white against him!

In that game he played <Qc7> and the game was drawn. So I am also kind of afraid he has found something in that game for white...

So maybe I should just play it different before he can surprise me with an improvement over my play in our previous game...

  kwid: Dear chessfriend,

I read that you are going to lose your premium membership and thus will not be able to play for our team anymore. If this is true I would like to offer to buy you a one year membership and MM our other team friend also suggest the same.

Why not take us up on our offer and arrange it with the site administration to have us billed for it?

We certainly would like to have you participating to finish this game in style and more important take part in a rematch were we could show how to play for a win when having white demonstrating the superiority of the human mind over brut force.

Please let us know if you are interested and have the time to keep playing for us as a premium member again.

Take care.

Premium Chessgames Member
  mistermac: I also make the same offer as the good <kwid>. Between us, we may be able to let you make a nuisance of yourself for the next two years.

Let me know.

Premium Chessgames Member
  truefriends: Ofcourse Im interested!

Don't know if this link also works for you...

  kwid: <truefriends:> one year - renewal - done!

  truefriends: <kwid> Thank you very much my dear (chess) friend!
Premium Chessgames Member
  kwid: If you ever find the time look these lines over. They represent just ideas not analysis of how I see the development of our team game if we would have played Nf6 instead of a5. Where White could have simplified with Ng5/Ne6 and taken a slightly inferior position but very likely could hold a draw.

I should state that these lines are overly optimistic but do reflect my enthusiastic support for playing the KI defense. And should mention that Kasparov an expert KI player preferred Kh8 giving the options of Ng8/Rg8 while I like Rf7/Ne8/Bf8 to hold d6 and c7 just long enough to reach either a draw or an outright winning position.

PS, delete it any time you feel like it.
Take care,

  truefriends: <kwid> IIRC we played <11... a5> to stop white from playing a5 themselves... I believe the best move after <11... Nf6> for white was <12.a5> what do you have after that move?

BTW We had to play h6 before we could play f4 and g5 which seems a bit to slow... We could have only started a pawn storm if white concentrated only on the queenside...

Well, first of all I think that a4 seem to be a tempo loosing move for white. Selecting a Q-side counter attack to safe ones King from a mating attack seems suicidal to me.

To answer your question about a5 in reply to Nf6 I see an equalizing Nxe4 exchange into safe endgame positions or press for a win with f4 as per the lines shown below:

<1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 4. e4 d6 5. Nf3 O-O 6. Be2 e5 7. O-O Nc6 8. d5 Ne7 9. b4 Nh5 10. Re1 f5 11. a4 Nf6 12. a5> f4

(12... Nxe4 13. Nxe4 fxe4 14. Ng5 e3 15. Bxe3 Nf5 16. Bd2 Bh6 17. Nf3 Bxd2 18. Qxd2 Nh4 19. Nxh4 Qxh4 20. f3 Rf4 21. g3 Rd4 22. Qc3 Qg5 23. Rad1 Rxd1 24. Rxd1 Rb8 25. Kg2 Bf5 26. Re1 h5 27. h4 Qf6 28. Qe3 b6)

13. c5 h6 14. Nd2 g5 15. a6 b6 16. f3 Ng6 17. Nc4 h5 18. Rf1 Rf7 19. c6 g4 20. fxg4 hxg4 21. b5 Bf8 22. Qe1 Rh7 23. Ra2 Nh5 24. g3 Nxg3 25. hxg3 Qf6 26. gxf4 Qh8 27. Bxg4 Rh1+ 28. Kf2 Qh4+ 29. Ke3 exf4+ 30. Kd2 Rxf1 31. Qxf1 Bxg4 32. Kc2 Bg7 33. Bd2 Re8 34. Kb3 Qh5 35. Qd3 Bf3 36. Ka3 Re7 37. Rb2 Bxc3 38. Qxc3 Bxe4 39. Nxd6 Bxd5 40. Nc8 Re4 41. Nd6 Re6 42. Nc4 Qf5 43. Rb4 Kh7 44. Nb2 Re2 45. Nd1 Be6 46. Kb2 Qd5 47. Kc1 Bf5 48. Qd4 Qa2 49. Qb2 Ne5 50. Rd4 Qa4 51. Rxa4 Nd3+ 52. Kb1 Nxb2+ 53. Kxb2 Rxd2+ 54. Kb3 Rxd1 55. Rxf4 Kg6 1-0

If you are still active competing I suggest you delete my lines to keep it for your own private book. And please remember that my moves are usually only reflective of an over horizon view point which I use to prepare my opening goals and have engines work out the proper lines if and when required.

  truefriends: I don't think your line is very likely... All white does is ignoring the attack and blocking the position on the Qside...

As I told before I don't play the KID with black, but the Semi Slav...

Lately I play mostly 1.e4... But against certain known opponents I might try 1.d4... But I wont play 11.a4...
