Oh man, I did *EXACTLY* the same thing. Was too late too. I think this one was the easiest yet.

Mar-07-14  firelees: This is certainly a very flexible opening system, lots of different moves both sides could play. 21 e5 losing a pawn seems dubious, not enough in the way of compensation. You could also make the same comment about 30 b5. The resignation, presuming that's what it was rather than a time loss, seems a little premature with white having the two bishops, but I would imagine black would grind white down in the end with the two extra pawns.
