  DarthStapler: Interesting game
Apr-17-10  kellmano: Yes it is an interesting game. Black's strategy of running his king into the corner at the cost of great time is interesting, as is white's of lining up his pawns.
Apr-17-10  asianwarrior: Since move 29, blacks queen and knight were wasting time waiting for white to blunder and leave h2 unprotected and give mate but that chance never happened.
Dec-21-10  gauer: Although 3 kingside stragglers didn't receive a promotion, once his highness locked up the captives, a ceremony of accolades is signaled when the adversary was found to have not yet surrendered. If one counts coronation row, a 5 ♙ phalanx assembles into formation at M Matto vs A Mossiaguine, 2008 of each rank, in unison on the black frontier-line.

  Sally Simpson: I use to play this as White all the time, won more than I lost.

Want a free trap I worked out for Black in this line.

Here: (Black to play)

5...d5 6.e5 Ne4

White wants rid of that Knight so comes up with;

7.Qf3+ (Intending Bd3) 7...Kg8!

White plays 8.Qxe4 because 8...dxe4 9.Bc4 mates.

However after 8.Qxe4 Bb4+

The Queen can now be taken as the Black King now has f8.

OK forget the trap, but do remember the idea.
