  Gilmoy: Lesson: <4..Nge7> is a red cape to a bull. It's not that f7 is any weaker than it already is, but Black's -1 tempo before he can castle away means White now wins the race.

Still, maybe <7.Ng5> Ne5, a monkey wrench vs Qf3. 8.f4 <self-blocks Qf3> Nc4 buys time, or 8.Bf4 Nec6 lets Black untangle.

N.B. (fitting when Black is busted by an N and a B, haha) fish on any free site will feed you a steady diet of Bc4-Ng5 with no further thought. Castle just-in-time, and either grind them down slowly, or let them trade away their only 2 active pieces for your R+P, and then grind them down moderately. Tie goes to the King :)

Dec-30-12  bystander: well played by Van der Wiel!
Dec-30-12  bystander: Instead of 5...b5 (cost time, weakens blacks' queenside) maybe 5..ed4x 6)0-0, ♘g6 7) ♘d4x ♗c5?

I have been looking at this line too: 7..♘e5 8) ♕d4x ♘c6 9)♕d5 ♕f6 10)f4 ♘c4 11) ♗c4x bc4x 12) ♘c3 h6 13) ♘f3 ♗b4. White has an advantage, but black can still fight.

  FSR: I don't get it. How did these two players play Van der Wiel vs J van Foreest, 2012 in Round 6 of the Groningen Open (2012), and the present game in Round 8?
