6.0 minute analysis by Stockfish 9 v010218

Oct-05-18  Poulsen: A very poor perfomance by Ivanchuck.

Can't say, that I have analyzed much, but it seems to me, that 7.-,Be6 followed by 11.-,Bf5 and 12.-,Bg4 leading to 13.-,Be2 simply spells doom for black, since it hands white a dangerous kingside initiative.

Would 11.-,Bc4 be better?

Mar-18-19  SeanAzarin: Nice Move, Duda
