Re: BoyHowdy - L25: B vs eltonjames [35:32]
Thanks for the comments, guys. Brett, I'm glad to hear that Rae8 was a good choice. I spent a lot of clock on that move thinking about the knight and ultimately moving the rook. Glad to know it resulted in a good decision. After spending that much time, I always feel like I should have found the "obvious" simple solution earlier. If I'm thinking about the center of the board, which I was, doesn't it just make automatic sense that I would want a rook there somewhere?
HH, I agree that getting the rook behind the c-pawn and pushing was my best chance to tie his rook down to defense. Thanks for the sample line you gave.
Here's a pgn for anyone who wants it. Thanks for watching and commenting.
