  tpstar: He changed his handle a few months ago after a dispute. His present identity is an anagram of his real name (you know both, right?) and he stops in from time to time, when he isn't busy with his studies. =)

  tpstar: <alexandrovm> Great game! Seemingly effortless win - White never had a chance. Next time you face 1. d4 Nf6 2. Nc3 consider 2 ... d5 and if 3. e4 Nxe4 equalizes G Baete vs I Timmermans, 2001 while avoiding any Blackmar-Diemer line.

The "m" at the end must stand for Master. =)

Dec-08-05  alexandrovm: <tpstar: <alexandrovm> Great game! Seemingly effortless win - White never had a chance. Next time you face 1. d4 Nf6 2. Nc3 consider 2 ... d5 and if 3. e4 Nxe4...> thank you for your advise my friend :) <keypusher: Great game, <alexandrovm>!! You demolished white! Do you have any comments on the opening?> While playing in in internet last year without opening preparation I started having fine results with the bishop on b7. So this year I decided to study this line and that's how I arrived at "queen's indian defense" and "nimzo indian defense". I admit that I did not yet finished to study deeply, but that will change :).

When I made the move 7. ...Nb4 I felt it was provocative making my opponent make a desition. To exchange his future active white bishop for my knight or to move his bishop to b5 with check. Later in the game I found the move 11. ... h5 which was the right desition. White's king seemed a little exposed, my king was still in the center and I saw a future advance of this pawn on white's king position and the support of my white bishop.

Even though I like 15. ...Bd8 (protects a future attack on c7 and makes way for my queen into white's king position) Fritz doesn't like it and points out 15. ...d5 as the best choice.

White chance to turn the tide in his favor was 19. Qf2.

At the end I really like 22. ...f5 and 23. ...Qg7. Suddenly all three heavy weight pieces are attacking the g2 pawn. My h pawn and my knight are very well placed (preventing things like g4 or Kh1), the black queen has another beautiful place to attack on e5. According to Fritz the final mistake of my opponent was 23.d5, trying to put my white bishop out of the attack white finds the end of the game very fast. Better was Nfd1, followed by Nf4. Even then the score is -2.06 (Fritz 8). Best wishes my friend :)

Jan-01-07  euripides: I can imagine white's 'oh @#$%' after 11...h5!! when Black already looks better.
Jan-01-07  alexandrovm: <euripides: I can imagine white's 'oh @#$%' after 11...h5!! when Black already looks better.> as a matter of fact it was a unexpected move, because my opponent started to think hard from here until the end of this game. Have a great year my friend! and best wishes


Jan-02-07  euripides: <alexandro> yes,I should think he was a bit disconcerted. Happy new year !
Jan-03-07  Rocafella: <alexandrovm> What is your rating?
Jan-03-07  alexandrovm: <Rocafella: <alexandrovm> What is your rating?> no rating, just another chess passionate. But, as soon as I get the oportunity, I will go for it (an ELO rating I mean)
Jan-03-07  Rocafella: Really, wow, it will be fairly high based on that game
Jan-05-07  alexandrovm: thank you my friend :)
