  Gypsy: Black is too weak of the long diagonal: 24...Qe7 25.Qc3 ... , or 24...Qxd5 25.Qh6 ... .
Apr-16-12  bystander: 14)♕h4 looks better than 14) ♕h3. 14) ♕h4, ♗g4 15) d4, cd4x 16) ed4x 0-0 17) ♘d2, b5.

After 14) ♕h3 black can play 14)...e5. 14) ♕h3, e5 15) ♕f3, ♗c6 16) ♕e2, e4 or 15) ♕g3, ♗e6 16) ♗e5x, ♗e7, 17) ♗f4, ♗c4x.

Apr-16-12  bystander: With 16 a4, ♘imzowitch wants to paralyse any activities from the black queenside pawns, before starting a set-up wit e4/f4. My silicon monster, however, refutes this plan: 16) a4, ♗c8 (attacks pawn d2 and prevents d4) 17) ♖fd1, ♕d3.

For white, maybe it's better to play one of the rooks? But 16) ♖ad1 or 16) ♖fd1? I give it a try. 16) ♖fd1, ♕c7 17) a4, f5 18) ♘e2 (♕h6 is now a threat) 18)...e5 19) ♘c3 (♘d5 is now a threat) 19) ..♗e6. Any thoughts?

Apr-16-12  bystander: After 19)...f5, white gets a very strong attack. I do not see how this move is of any help for black. According to Nimzowichts comments, if black does not do anything, white has either a kingside attack or play against blacks'c5-pawn.

However, I just learned from Nimzowitch that dilettantes desperately want to do something and that consolidation moves, in the broadest sense of the term, which meet the demands of the position are far more frequently what should be played.

So with the help of my computer (thank you computer) a line with some waiting moves could be looking like this. 19)...b6 20) d3, ♗c7 21) ♖ab1, ♖ab8 with more or less equal play. Any thoughts on this one?
