Re: gentlewhisper - GW vs Eimaj [25:32]
Gentlewhisper, I have a confession to make. I secretly decided in this game to embark on an exercise to demonstrate to viewers how not to play the Dragon - for educational purposes, you understand...
If only it were true!
You're commentary hit the nail on the head I think:
"Black was just too slow"
"So, he is threatening to, er...not do anything, really..."
"I am up a damn piece!"
I am somewhat embarrassed by the fact that I didn't even talk about the possibility (if not obligation, as a supposed Accelerated Dragon player) of ...d5 until seconds from the end of my video. You were right - 8...d5 is actually in 'my repertoire'. I have a lot of work to do.
18...Rxh1? What a horrible move!
I will be posting some analysis to accompany my video later,
but for now, thanks GW for the game, and the video.
I'm sorry I didn't put up a more stubborn defence =)
