Jan-04-13  jerseybob: Nice game. After 13.c5! white took the lead and never gave it up, although several other good moves were needed,like 22.Bxb8!and 29.a4! BTW, I'm assuming you were planning to answer 13..dxc5 with 14.d5, right?
Feb-23-13  ozmikey: <Nice game.> Thank you! :-)

<I'm assuming you were planning to answer 13..dxc5 with 14.d5, right?> That's right. I didn't analyse it fully at the time but thought that it would be very difficult for Black to hold on with his king still stuck in the middle, and that's certainly how it appeared when we analysed it after the game.

Probably the reason why I think this is the best game I've played is that for perhaps the first time in my life I managed to follow a plan right the way through from the early middlegame virtually to the end. And of course 22. Bxb8 was the key move in that respect...I remember the way Jason nodded his head and smiled grimly when I played it. If the knight can't get to c6 there's just no play for Black.

  OhioChessFan: c5 is amazing in its latent power. Interesting how Black had to forsake the Kingside to deal with it, and then White's finish took advantage of the suddenly defenseless King. You could roll out a number of Nimzo quotes that would describe this game at various points.

  Jonathan Sarfati: A good example of play on both sides of the board.
