  nasmichael: Both opponents are aggressive and focused on the other side of the board.

Znovsko-Borovsky uses 2 sacrificial pieces (knight and pawn) early to knock holes in the enemy's barricades. A strong opponent of mine at www.brainking.com (taikoki)does the same thing, and I admire him for it. I told him "A man who cautions you is as one who brings you good news." --Hadrat Ali

He gets me every time. His Shogi experience may help open his vision to that option. I have often been told not to do that, but have not understood why. It is dangerous, and does imbalance the piece count, but it is effective. How can it be stopped? "Good play," of course, but what kind? Leave no man alone and unprotected, and don't step on the laces of your friendly pieces.

Jul-17-05  rochade18: Where the hell went Black wrong? Right in the beginning? I Think 6...Bf5 is worth considering, preventig white from building up his queen-bishop-gun.
Aug-16-12  Castleinthesky: It looks like Blacks blunder was 8...g6, which allows White to destroy blacks kingside pawn defense. Better might have been 8...h6, which would not have created a target.
