  Honza Cervenka: White missed simple win of piece with Pawn fork after 8.f4! Bd6 9.e5 and played it only one move later when it lost its effect due to possibility of check on c5 weakening thus his position only. In final position threats like Nxg3 or Bg4 can be covered only by 15.Nd2 (protecting Rf1) but then after 15...Nxd2! 16.Bxd2 Bf5! (threatening Be4) 17.Bxd5 Rad8 (diagram) white loses material.

For example, 18.Be1? or 18.Bc1? is bad for 18...Rxd5! ; 18.Be3 Bxe3 19.Qxe3 Rxd5 ; 18.Rad1 Bg4 ; 18.c4 c6 19.Ba5 cxd5 (once again Be4 is a threat) 20.cxd5 b6 etc.

Nov-12-11  Apoline48: Dear Honza, 8f4 is not obvious after 8...Nh5 9fxB , Then 9...Qh4+ etc .It seems that black get counter play! ?
Nov-12-11  Shams: <Apoline48> 8.f4 Nh5 9.Qd5 takes away your resource.
Mar-28-15  garuffa: Mmmmmh... I can't write the line but 8.f4 is less incisive that at at first look. White can't castle and must pay a pawn or two.
Mar-09-16  chesssalamander: First Robatsch! It isn't a Cochrane-Mohishunder game, but it IS a Cochrane game!
