 Want Dennis to analyze one of your games? (SUBMIT HERE)
Dennis is going to start a series in which he analyzes member games. If you'd like a game analyzed, please post it here (in PGN notation). Don't be shy! Any interesting games are welcome. This is your chance to get free analysis from a very strong player.

Once we have a bunch of games, we'll decide together which ones we most want to see analyzed.

spatri: Can you edit your post to get rid of the number "14..." before Qd8 on Black's 14th move? It ruins the cut-and-pasteability of the PGN.

Keep 'em coming!

 Re: Want Dennis to analyze one of your games? (SUBMIT HERE)
I lost this but it was very interesting game. Played in NZ.

[Event "Howick-Pak Club Champs 2008"]
[Site "Auckland, Howick Chess Club"]
[Date "2008.09.30"]
[Round "6"]
[White "Benjamin Lim"]
[Black "Richard Taylor"]
[Result "1-0"]

1. c4 e5 2. Nc3 Nf6 3. g3 Bb4
{
I know this system pretty well as I used to play it in the 80s and also I
had just bought another book on the English - I now own three! - and in I fact
I had been studying this very line! But only recently since studying the
Nimzo have I come to start to understand the ideas behind the moves
more deeply. Black puts pressure on White's centre and pawns and in
exchange for the 2 Bishops gets development and some pressure on
e4 and the e file. White should try for pressure on d5 etc Ben chose the
"wrong" opening - if I had been White I
would have probably played 1 c4 myself and I was concerned about
facing 1 e4 as there are certain lines in the Sicilian that concern me.

But until recently I had had trouble facing the English.
}
4. Bg2 O-O 5. a3
{
Possibly not the best. Mostly White plays now 5. Nf3 and after 5. ... Re8
6. 0-0 e5 either 7. Ne1 (to go to c2 the e3 then d5) or 7. Ng5. Black
usually exchanges on c3 after Nc2.

Another idea is 5 Nd5

}
5... Bxc3 6. dxc3
{
6. bxc3 was played by Botvinnk v Smyslov but he felt after that game that
5.a3 wasted time. Now the Q-side pawns become a target and also I
will attack down the e file. Note that the doubled pawns for White can also
become strong if Black isn't careful.

So there is now an interesting strategical struggle - are White two B's
going to prevail over his weakened pawn mass and the fact that Black
has more development?
}
6... d6 7. Qd3 a5
{
Trying to restrain the White pawns and hoping to force a weakness -
also to possibly get a knight to c5 if possible.
}
8. b4 Nc6
{
Threatening to win the b pawn. Now 9. b5? is clearly an error so he plays
to protect the a1 Rook. BLack already has a small advantage.
}
9. Bb2 e4
{
I strike! White is now under a lot of pressure - I wanted to play this pawn
sacrifice before White got in e4 - I want to, possibly, swap his better B off, &
get pressure on the uncastled King and the Q-side pawns.
Ben was clearly taken aback and spent some time replying.
}

I intended 12. ... Ne5 but decided on this as I missed White's next move.

I knew that here 15. Bh5 was possible as if 16. g4 Qh4+ K any Bxg4 wins.
I was in one of those positions that almost anything I do wins; but as often
happens a won game is flitterd away as happened here. A GM would
have wrapped this game up pretty quickly for Black. Why aren't I a GM!!

But I think that 15. ... Be6 is better as my target is the Q-side pawns and
tactics on the King side may open some poss. counter play
against my King.

I had intended 18. ... c5 which is o.k. but not very incisive or enterprising.
18...c5 19. g4 (or 19 Nf3 looks good) and White is coming into the game.
18. ... b6 might be an alternative.

19. Qxa7?? was a bait that Ben - who is an over 1900 (over 2000 Elo)
player wisely declined!

After 19. Qxa7 Rxd1+ 20. Kxd1 Rd8+ 21. Ke1 b6! 22. Ra2 Bd5 and the
White Q is trapped and at least out of play while Black is going to exploit
the many weaknesses White has.

Or if 19. Rxd8 (as played) Rxd8 20. Qxa7 ?? b6! 21. Nf3 Bd5
22. Rd1 Qe3+ and wins. (22. Ra8 probably also wins)
}
19... Rxd8 20. f5 Qd7 21. Nf3 Bd5
{
By tactical means Black gets the upper hand - or gains more of it - but
Ben (ex-Club Champ as I am also!) has played well.
Still he cant take the knight on a7!!

e.g. 22. Qxa7 b6


23. Ne5 Qd6 24. Rd1 Qxe5 25. Rxd5 Qxd5
26. Qxc7 Qd1#

or if 23. Rd1 Qe7! wins - admittedly that is not so clear but to both of us it
looked pretty scary - I must concede I played these sacrifices based on
"intuition as much as calculation - ths is partly for psychological reasons
(also I'm addicted to taking risks to generate exciting positions or games
in Chess - sure I want to win but this means I lose a lot as not
all "intuition" is valid!) and partly as there s simply not enough time.

For abysmally stupid reasons our Club is playing its Championship
games with only 75 minutes each player and 15 secs increments!!

22. Rd1 Nxb5 23. Qf4 Qe7 24. e4
{
Ben thought - without looking at the game - that he had 24. Qh4 here
but he must have missed 14. ..Qe6+ which saves my bacon as I play
f6 next 24 or 25 e4 was a dangerous threat.
}
24... Bc6 25. Rxd8+ Qxd8
{
Ben or Benji (Benjamin I think he is) Lim now played the game mostly
with less than 5 minutes and often less than 1 minute whereas I mostly had
more than 5 minutes . So thinking I had an easy win I refused his draw offers -
about three - then when I offered one - I was in a bad position and soon
lost (this needn't have happened). I then noticed that Ben hadn't been recording
his moves (just ticking his score while I had to write all my moves down!!)
so I lost the game on Lim's 's time - courtesy of the H-Pak Club
who changed the time control in the middle of the Tournament!!!

I may as well have given Ben two rooks to help him! So I was playing as
if I had started with odds like an old time GM in a Coffee House
in Olde Deutschland

I think this is wrong 31. ... g6! and I can get the pawn later.

Another mistake! Here and on the next few moves Kg7 heading for
the h pawn probably wins.

Another blunder - I play the ending almost as badly as it is possible to
play - Ben plays sharply in terrific time pressure - while I "have" to write my
moves down he is ticking his moves!! (but of course if I had been stonger player I would have played better and won! So no more excuses!))

(After the game when there result was in dispute it was discovered that I
didn't have to if I was under 5 minutes!! And quite often I was now.)
