6.0 minute analysis by Stockfish 9 v010218

Aug-19-19  whiteshark: Acc2 CB database it's <Romanov, B.> (not in the cg database)
Aug-19-19  whiteshark: Some analysis by Zoran Petronijevic :

"<14.g4?> [White comes to an inferior position.]

[Better was 14.Nxa7! with a slightly better position.]

<14...Nxf3+ 15.Qxf3 a6?> [Black missed a great tactical possibility: 15...Nxe4 16.Nxe4 f5 ∓]

<16.Nd4 e5?> [Black ruins his pawns in the centre.]

[Better was 16...d5 17.e5 Nd7 ∞]"

Dec-03-21  hez: Sometimes when I see a move like Rf5!! - I quickly realize that I'm way too far behind on ELO...

  plang: Beautiful attack of course. His opening is quite original - 7 a4!? was new and has only been played one other time. Black was fine until 16..e5?
