  tpstar: I like this line for White, giving a fine spatial advantage with the Pd5 exerting quite a cramp on Black's Kingside development. The natural 12 ... Kc8?! loses a Pawn to 13. Ng5, 14. Nxf7 & 15. 0-0-0. If 12 ... h6 13. 0-0-0 Ng4 14. Bd4 threatening 15. h3 and no escape square for the Ng4. The game continuation left a weak Pe6 which fell and White romped.

  Gypsy: <tpstar> Thanks for posting your game. Your oponent was a strong player.

As for the Andersson game, it is scary how simply he crushed Van Geet. In view of what happened later, the oh-so-natural <6...Nf6?> was an error. It was better to postpone it in favor of either immediately opening up the Black bishop by 6...e5, or at least play the prophylactic 6...a6 or 6...Bd7. Two moves later, the <8...a6> has very little to reccomend it, except that Black already has no realy good alternatives anyway; immediate 8...e5 was probably about the best.

Apr-13-05  prinsallan: Andersson literally ties Van Geet time after another in this game. Black finds himself forced to tie up his pieces until nothing can stop a lost game any longer. Great play here by Andersson.

  Mateo: I do not agree with tpstar's first variation. After 12... Kc8 13. Ng5 white stands better but does not win a pawn. Black plays 13... Ne5 14. f4 Nc4! 15. Bd4 Nd6. And, as shown later, black lost because of a very weak move. Gypsy's proposal does not look neither convincing. For instance, 6... e5 7. dxe fxe, and black has a weak pawn (e6). The true reason why black lost this game is that 18... Ne8? loses a pawn. Better is 18... Nd5! 19. Nxd5 exd5 20. Be3 (20. Rxd5? Kc6 ). White has a better ending but it is not lost for black.
