  OhioChessFan: I plugged the position into Fritz after Black's 5th move, and at 15 plies, Herr is calling for 6. Ke2! 6. Kf1 is its second choice. Whew. Did <Wannabe> set up its Opening Book?

  Pawn and Two: <OhioChessFan> Your Fritz must be ill. At 15 ply on my Fritz, 6.Kf1 is it's 24th choice, and 6.Ke2, the 27th!

  OhioChessFan: You know, I've had strange problems with it. Let me run it again and see what happens.

And the answer is.....
6. e5 and 0-0 both about 1.70 at 15 plies. Maybe I set the wrong position up? Can you give me any info on how to use Fritz? I'm pretty much limited to letting it run and it shows the 2 highest rated lines. No idea how to clear out hash tables, etc, or even if I can.

Oct-26-11  Mozart72: A real blunder 13...Rf8 for Black. With this "forced sacrifice", Black thinks he will gain material advantage with 14...Qxf8 but he does not. And White does with 15.exf7. An apropiate move for Black can be 13...Bg7, making the game continue a bit more.
Oct-26-11  Shams: <Mozart72> <13...Rf8> is not a blunder; Black didn't play it to gain material advantage but rather to cut his losses. (After your 13...Bg7 White can play 14.exf7+, winning a rook, or 14.Bxg7, 15.Nxf7, 16.Qh6+ and 17.Bxg6 with a mating attack.)

Still, this is some actual chess analysis, an improvement on the number salad you've been offering. Stick with it.

Oct-26-11  Mozart72: As I said <Shams>. The game can continue a bit longer: 17.Bxg6.
