May-06-05  InspiredByMorphy: There are some moves I dont understand in this game. A. 10.dxc5 ? developing blacks bishop and weakening the white e pawn. B. 11.Na3 allows black to make white put the rook on a practically useless square or face doubled pawns. 11. ...Bxa3 12.Rxa3 Qc7 13.Re1 f6 would have been good for blacks position. C. 14. ...Ng4 instead of 14. ...Rf7 15.Ng5 Re7 and now blacks threat of 16. ...Ng4 is effective.
Jun-07-06  Dindo: Is this sicilian or french?
Jun-07-06  borisbadenoff: <Dindo: Is this sicilian or french?> I consider to be more of a alapin sicilian but you could also see it as a transposition into a seldom played french line

Well I thought that the idea might be Nb3 but again i guess dxc5 might have been better at move 9. I don't understand 9. a4 there was no need to stop the a-pawn as Bxa4 is ready.

I don't know it don't like the looks of the 11. .. Bxa3 line you gave. White answers with 14. Bf4 and black will be forced to overextend its pawn structure while white is still pretty solid.

Jan-26-13  ELCABALLO238: This a French Advanced by transposition...White could have played 7.0-0 offering the dangerous Milner-Barry Gambit!!
