  tpstar: In "Starting Out: The Scotch Game" John Emms notes the trap 10. f4? Bc5+ 11. Kh1 Qh4 12. h3 Qg3! mates (13. hxg4 Qh4#). Besides 10. Bf4, White can try 10. h3 which leads to an even trade after 10 ... Nxe5 11. Bxh7+! Kxh7 12. Qh5+ Kg8 13. Qxe5 W Pollock vs Chigorin, 1889

Emms cites the game Tzermiadianos-Frendzas (Athens, 1996) which continued 10. Bf4 f6 11. exf6 Qxf6! 12. Bg3 Bc5, with the analysis that 12. Bxc7? instead is "rather gluttonous" due to 12 ... Bc5 13. Bg3 Nxf2! 14. Bxf2 Bxf2+ 15. Kh1 Qh4 and Black is on the attack. In the reference game, Black stood well after 13. Qd2 Rb8 14. Rab1 Bd6 15. Be2 Ne5 and eventually won (0-1).

  keypusher: Say, <tpstar>, do you have any interest in playing in the <computer-free> consultation game just beginning on this site? You'd be very welcome on the Black team, although I think assigns you automatically to a team.
Jul-13-07  benba57: I couldn't find how black utilized the f-file. I was thinking that a half-open f-file would help out black against the Scotch. How does the half-open f-file aid black?
Jul-19-07  Karpova: 22...Bxd3 23.cxd3 is a bad weakening but forced (!!): 23.Qxd3 Ng4! 24.g3 Qh5 25.Ne5

Black can utilize the F-file if White tries 25.Rf1 for example: 25.Rf1 Rf8 (<25....c4 is also good>) 26.Ne2 (<26.Nd1 Ne5>) 26...Rxf2 27.Nxd4 Rxd2 28.Nxc6 Rxd3
