  tpstar: 11. Qh5 worked out badly for White because after 11 ... 0-0-0 12. Qxh7 is the only continuation (12. Nxh7??/Nxe6?? Qxh5). Then 12 ... Bf5 hit the Qh7, and after 13 ... Bxc2 Black had a protected passed Pawn. Notice Black pounced on 14 ... Bxh7 avoiding 15. Nf6 controlling the g8 Queening square. At least the Qh7 defended against Nc2, but White's Queenside pieces were no help. In the end White loses the Bh6 or the Nd2.

  tpstar: You bet! But the Max Lange has always caused me trouble, so I'm trying to approach both openings systematically. This database has an incredible number of virgin games without annotations, so I'm including my notes and thoughts for later. Please add any comments or improvements which you think are helpful for other students. Thank you.
