Nov-09-09  Ulhumbrus: <mastermind7994: why i have this feeling that white stood better?> Possibly because White stood better.
Nov-09-09  Ulhumbrus: An alternative to 15 f4( which may enable Black to equalize after 15...Bg7 16 e4 Nc4!) is 15 Qe2. This move does three things. It unpins the N on c3, it connects the Rooks, and it prepares to occupy the d file. After 15 Qe2 Black's N on b6 is out of play and White has a lead in development.
Nov-09-09  WhiteRook48: white is a pawn ahead but draws to to opposite colored Bs
