Sarciness's reaction to your ...f5 was very amusing!
I thought White could have tried to push the a-pawn and create some play to counter your powerful centre - those pawns were scary.
Well played and congratulations on winning the tournament.

Thanks, eimaj ! Yes, pushing the a-pawn looks like a try, but then again: Hard to concentrate on pushing an a-pawn when facing a central attack. :]

I watched the game, but not the post game analysis. Probably will have to work until 2 or something now, but I needed a break from work!

Really enjoyed the commentary. On a normal day, I would just have retreated the bishop and won 2 pawns with Ba4 b5 Nxb5 axb5 Bxb5 Bd7 dxc6 where black has very little compensation at all. Not hard to find, and the natural variation to analyse, but my brain was too lazy! In that moment bxc6 seemed simpler, which it wasn't. After that, you played some unexpected (and very good) moves like Nd4! which I completely missed, blocking that file up.

I think that white's correct plan in the game wasn't to push the a-pawn, but to play Bg5 and get the a-rook into the game in so that I can play c4.

It was very tough once black had d4. I completely missed the idea of Bb4 (egoism, which my commentary displays throughout), but my position was already looking a bit dangerous beofore f4?? and my comment "can't be bothered" summed up my performance. Congrats again, Fox. You deserved it!

Thanks, glad you got something out of it ! Yes, the Bishop looked strange on e3, I was indeed expecting Bg5.

I wonder, if I can make f5 work somehow. 1. e4 Nc6 2. Nc3 f5!? is probably ''better''.

I mean, this position looks awful (for Black), if White can just blockade the center or at least avoid a pawn avalanche.

You need to play a6 instead of Bd7, but the variation is still pretty poor for black. What's the idea with d6? If you're an open games player, you should probably just learn a couple of variations in the Vienna- it's fine for black. Just play 2...e5. 3.f4 is exciting for both sides and anything else gives black an easy game.

f5 immediately is fine, probably transposes into normal Colorado lines. If I have to play a6 in the d6-line, I'd scrap it instead. :lol:

2..Nc6 is a poor move in the Vienna compared to Nf6 IMO. Aljechin is with me on that one.

2. Nc3 turned out to be one of the trickier variations after all (the interesting lines are always the sidelines, I guess (with exceptions, of course)). Learned that thanks to you, Sarc !

Wow. Ok. You mean 1.e4 Nc6 2. Nc3 f5? That just looks plain bad. 3. exf5 and now black needs to play Nf6, but 4. d4 and now black will struggle to get e5 in.

You're right, sorry. I was expecting it to transpose into the Colorado, but a key feature of the real C. is missing. It's getting late, you know. :lol: Ok, 2. Nc3 Nf6 3. d4 d5 it is. Looks pretty reasonable, in any case. Familiar territory.

Edit: Maybe 4. e5 Nd4 (4...Ng8?!; 4..Nd7? and I walked into one of my favorite gambits with White 5. e6! Spielmann gambit).

This is much more reasonable. Black can fight for equality in this line and white will be out of book very early.
