Re: BoyHowdy - L15: B vs pmmotor [18:19]
My goal is to stop and take time during each game to evaluate the position and plan to improve my pieces through maneuvering or trading. These are the questions I have for myself after playing this game:
1) Was I wrong to avoid doubling White's pawns and open the b-file? Why do I play the Winawer?!
2) Would there have been significant pressure on my b-pawn if that file had opened?
3) Did I exchange pieces or avoid exchanges for logical reasons?
Other thoughts not covered by the questions above:10...Bd7
Maybe I could have tried to trade the dark-square bishops on this move.12...f6
I didn't want to capture on e5 and open the file for White's rook. Ideally, the exchange would happen on d6 and I bring my c-pawn to the center. 12...Nxe5 fails after 13. exd5 Bc6 14. Qf4 and the d6 bishop is pinned.17...Ng6
Revealing an attack on the queen and hoping to capture on f4 and give g6 to my bishop.18...Rc8
Activating the rook and threatening to take on f4....however, is this the logical follow-up to my last move?
