Was the transition to an open
game too sudden?

  Gypsy: < Was the transition to an open game too sudden?> It seems to me that after some 15-16 moves any opening of the play favored Black and, on top of that, White could not realy keep the game closed. A game that Breyer and Reti may have played back in the 1920 or so.
Mar-28-06  iamverywellatchess: The white horse was not attacking enough here! I can tell you that this is so!

Black did not show enouth of the attack to win, therefore! White had the game all of the entire way!

  IMlday: 11..Ra6! is the monster move. I sat beside this massacre at the time. When Ulf romped, he romped totally.
Mar-28-06  Jim Bartle: iamverywellatchess, IMlday.

IMlday, iamverywellatchess.

Decisions, decisions. Which to listen to?

Well, since IM Day is actually aware who won the game (he was there, after all)...

  Gilmoy: <8..a5 9..Nb4> is a typical <GM outpost> idea. But the awkward patz-ish (or GM-hypermodern? :) <11..Ra6!? 12..Rc6> produces the goofiest possible double on c2 -- yet one move too soon for White to deal with it!

<16..Ba6> nags at White's residual <4.Nd2> congestion. Perhaps Suttles feared that Qc2-Rd1 was hopelessly passive compared to Black's f5-Rcf6 plan? With <18.b4?!> he initiates a bewildering <zwieschenduel>, with threat after threat against loose pieces. Somebody could get hurt!

Black gives a "not so, Suttle!" reminder that bishops can pin and knights can't. White recovers his two pawns, but only "forces" Black's Q+R to "retreat" to their ideal Launching Pads 39A and 39B:

Meanwhile, White's woeful Rc2/Re2 paid two tempi for no threats <and> weak back rank. 4.Nc3! equalizes for White :)
