Aug-28-14  jerseybob: 9.Bf5 seems to saddle black with a weakness but actually gives him a supergrip on e4. 9.Ndf3 looks better. 11.Rf3?! would only mean something if black castled short, but 11..000! is the perfect answer. 12.b3 seems a more elastic way of attacking the q-side instead of 12.b4?!,c4!, and after the ill-advised pawn swap 15.Qa4?,Nc3, if white tries to trap the knight with either 19.Kf1 or Kf2, 19..Ra8! and if 20.Qc5,Qc5 21.dc,Nc3 or 20.Qb4,Bf8! etc.
