Jan-11-07  devinjc: Black already seems to be in trouble, but 11...c4 looks pretty bad, atleast positionally
Mar-07-08  Knight13: <devinjc: Black already seems to be in trouble, but 11...c4 looks pretty bad, atleast positionally> That move was kind of forced.
Nov-14-08  Halofire: Um...? Maybe im missing something but why not 19.Qxd6? That puts black ahead by a knight.

Feb-05-12  Knight13: <devinjc: Black already seems to be in trouble, but 11...c4 looks pretty bad, atleast positionally> Black's real mistake is 2... f5 (or how he handled that move). 5... e5 worsens it, but 5... Nbd7 would've been better. 6... f4 would've lessened the pain, but Black was already worse then.
