Today saw the second game in our six-game match. Javaid told me afterwards that he had spent six hours preparing against my Scandinavian - but then I diverted from his prepartion with 9...gxf6 - as recommended (just about) by Bauer. Until then, Javaid, said, he thought I was walking into a loss.
Hlaf an hour before the game I had looked at this very line and had decided to play gxf6, on Bauer's slight recommendation but not knowing at all what to play afterwards.
A second win for me - but Javaid won't be pleased when he learns that he resigned in a lost position.
