Jun-20-04  PizzatheHut: I played a game this morning (I played as white) that was identical to the game here through the first 16 moves. After that, I had trouble coming up with a plan, played poorly, and lost. What would be a good plan in this position? What was white's plan here starting with 19. Qg5?
Jun-21-04  Knezh: 17. d5 followed by f4 looks like a plan to attack the kingside. SInce white has teh centre he might as well do something aggressive before he gets overwhelmed by black's pressure upon the d and e pawns.
Jun-21-04  mjk: <PizzatheHut>, Maybe White just wanted to put his ♕ on a better square, where it had more range and uncovered the ♖ on the file with the Black ♕. Perhaps 18.♕g5 was intended to provoke a weakening pawn move--18...f6 opened the 7th (see tactics at move 23)--before she moved to e3.

That would make the plan one of collecting small positional advantages.
