Jul-18-05  aw1988: This was an exciting game.

If you're playing me in correspondence you should probably avoid the Sveshnikov. It is one of my favorite Black systems, and I have many years of experience with it. Curiously, in both of our games you were somehow squeezed into a very passive position.

I think that the most difficult for Black to face is c3 O-O Nc2 Bg5 where h4 isn't as forcing as a4!.

Note that you played Ndb4, not Ncb4.

After f3 Black still looks quite a bit better, and may still eventually win. I don't know what, maybe consolidation moves.

Interesting game though, thanks.
