cool attack - I have been seeing a lot of Phildor's in my replays, and I was thinking 3. Nc3 was best but I like your gambit - will remember it for next time - you dominated this one -

I also like how you get the screen with the score in there so balanced so the video doesn't stretch the board - any tips for that? -

Yup, well done!!
It was nice to see an example of punishment for bad pawn moves in the opening. I'd be interested in more of the same.

I totally blew this one - forgot Qb3 and later missed a chance to get his friggen QUEEN - then hung my rook in a bad exchange - if he hadn't been in such a hurry and done the same I'd have been dead - then I blew the end game too -

I blundered beginning, middle, and endgame on this one - total choke vs a 1420 rated player who wins 70% of his games vs 1300 rated opponents - I don't deserve the draw.

Was fun to try your gambit though - I'll remember Qb3 next time

KB well played! On 17.exd6 I think you had the flashy 17.Rxd!-BxR 18.Rd1! and the B is pinned to the Q and the Q to the K. Actually exd6 is a stronger move but it's nice to finish with a tactical flourish with an exchange sac! No matter what tho black is being ripped apart. This is the thing about development. You had a strategically won position after 6 or 7 moves. Nice to watch.

hey whiskey,

look at 10.Bxf7
then Ke7 is forced to guard Queen

then Rxe5+ Be6
Rxe6+ Kxf7
Qxd8 Kxe6
Qxc8... etc.

yah - even the end game went badly as I went left when I should have gone right fighting the white king for those a-c pawns - LOL -

lucky I got a draw - once I got in a corner I offered it to him twice before he pushed the pawn and did it for me ;)

lotta possibilities for the gambit though - I'd like to analyze some lines in Fritz with it -

You'd probably be better off looking up some games in a database than asking Fritz for opening help. While awesome tactically positionally Fritz still lacks some umph that GMs often have. Of course, I guess that's assuming that you're wondering about the positional aspects of it rather than tactical possibilities. :-)

a little of both - once you've missed the change to exchange a bishop for a queen, it pays to know a bit more of the tactical - LOL - but will look at fritz database too perhaps -

Here's one more - surprised how much I'm seeing this but I'm running into a lot of 1000-1200 rated players - I've been sorta sucking lately - LOL



4. Black's move is great for me - but my enemies generally like Nf6 I think and that feels a bit harder to refute -

15. I saw the tactical shot on f6 with the two knights but dismissed it as being even once he played Nxb3 - I missed the fact I could play Ndf6 and recapture with the Q on g7 - actually Fritz ranked the move Nf6 as about a 30 pawn advantage - LOL - but I knew my fork would still be there after moving Qd1 so I held out.

I'm liking it but it feels a bit risque vs informed opponents - for example, Nf6 on the 4th move is a bit tougher to make things work out with that c3 pawn advance - you end up wanting to defend the e4 pawn -
