2011 David Delgado Open, Round 3

Here is my 3rd round game from the 2011 David Delgado Open with full annotations and commentary:

 

I was pretty satisfied with this game. I thought I played very solid and logical when I needed to and then tried to take matters into my own hands with 12. Rh5 starting an attack on the King when the opportunity presented itself. Then rejecting the b4 pawn and instead playing 16...Nxe3 was probably the most critical moment of the game.

Any thoughts or feedback would be greatly appreciated as I am always looking to find where I could have improved throughout the course of the game and I am trying to understand what I can learn from the game for the future.

    the Bd6 move innacuracy has to do with the g3 pawn i think its common

    Instead 7...Bd6, the most popular is 7...Be7. 7...h6 is a bit of a time wasting. Although Bf5 is controling the b1-h7 diagonal, it's not stronger than Nf3 (cause Pe6 is completely limiting its space), so that maneuvr Nh4-Nxg6 is very common and it shouldn't bother you.

    072898, in this case White would play 26. d6+! forking the King and Queen. Therefore I had to deal with this major threat.

    Why not 25....Ne4 winning a piece

    kaushikdr, I am not sure. I did not want to play c6-c5 as I already wasted one tempo playing c7-c6. Also with the White Bishop on g2, I did not want to increase the power and scope of this piece as the c6 pawn was doing a good job defending the d5 strong-point.

    I don't think you should do Nd7 until the guy does Bg5, you can do a bit of a tarrash, and get your knight to c6 instead. If i am wrong, please tell me because i am more of an e4 than a d4 player.

    herodance, my rating around 1950

    Rogalentis, yes 6...dxc4 is one of the theoretical moves but White would be fine after 7. Ne5 when Black cannot hold the extra pawn
