  Honza Cervenka: 6...a5 with next 7...a4 is an interesting idea. But white still could have played 10.b4 with intention 10...axb3 11.Qxb3 where worse Pawn structure is well compensated by space, mobility and Bishop pair. White's play was a bit planless and 13.Nh4 with trade of LS Bishops was a serious positional mistake. Rudenko's play was positionally quite simple, consistent and effective but 18...g5 could have been a small inaccuracy allowing white to consolidate the position by 19.d5! Qh3 20.e4! Instead of that 18...c6 or immediate 18...e4 deserved attention. But Ms. Bruce missed this probably only given chance and after 21...e4 the game was practically over.
Dec-29-06  nescio: <Honza Cervenka> Yes, good analysis, I think. White had also a different approach at her disposal instead of 7.g3 which looks a bit slow: 7.Bg5 with ideas like 7...h6 8.Bxf6 Qxf6 9.e4 or 7...Bb7 8.e3 followed by Bd3 and Qc2 (to hinder or prevent ...Ne4).
