Feb-16-07  Tomlinsky: A nice battle of wits. Interesting that Hodgson took up Short's offer to transpose into a French after opening with d4.

20...f3 seems weak with options such as 20...Bh5 and 20...NNc8 available. Hodgson sacrifices the exchange anyway for activity with 22.Nd2 but doesn't follow the idea up to my mind. I wonder if 34.b6 followed by 35.Nb5 giving queen and bishop more scope would be a better plan for counter play here if not earlier.
