Re: Robofriven - vs Armis 25 5 Alekhine\'s Defense [9:02]
Couple things I should mention that I seemed to forget in the video. Firstly, sorry about the audio not sinking up, I've always had problems with that on here, hence the short game.
Firstly I wanted to talk about the position before the move a3. It looked like this:
I think this was a slightly better position for White. Not just because Fritz gave it a +=.20, because I thought this before the silicon beast told me so. And here's why.
Firstly, space. White is kicking Black's butt at space! The center and the Queenside are under White's control with Black not really having any way of gaining any territory because his pawns are all blocked by the knights. The only square that Black really controls is b4 and a5 and the square e5 is rather up for grabs at the moment.
Blacks knight on b6 has moved a LOT to get to where it's at, and it's not really all that great of a square where the White knights on f3 and c3 are rather well placed effecting the center which is controlled by White's good pawns on c4 and d4.
The Bishop on h5 really isn't doing a whole lot anymore since the pin was broken, though I do now see that h3 was a rather useless move it really didn't cost me anything except the pawn on h3 was harder to defend than it would have been on h2 after the bad gxf3 move, but that's gxf3's fault more than h3's.
And near the end, Kh2 wouldn't have helped at all because Nxf4 still can't be stopped.
Anyway, hope you all enjoyed the video, any and all feedback is quite encouraged. Thanks!
