Apr-06-05  InspiredByMorphy: <tpstar> <hmattos47-tpstar0> After 1. e4 e5 2. d4 ed 3. c4 dc 4. Bc4 cb 5. Bxb2 Qe7 6. Nc3 c6 7. Nge2 d6 8. 0-0 Be6 9. Nd5?! I really thought white could get somewhere, but you showed in your analysis that by not accepting the offered sacrifice, black maintained the upper hand. I looked at 9. ...Qd7 10.Ne3 but blacks position also holds.

<birdlady02322-tpstar0> After 9.Qb3 black gets the better game. White should develop more before bringing the queen out. 9.Bxe6 would have helped accomplish this. You had nice control of the d-file! Whites sacrifice 12.Nxd5? was proven unsound.
