i knew move 18 was bad but pity i didnt realise this until a move or 2 after! I put alot of analyse into this move 18 and considered Nc6 and Kc8! but i was thinking an awful lot of moves ahead into the end game and thought this was better! I believe this was the move that made me not win and put me under alot more pressure than i didn't needed. But hey atleast i learnt something! DONT PLAY BAD MOVeS
if only it were that simple
5. Be3 - This wasn't too good, c3 or Bd3 (The Mainline) were better.
6...cxd4 - You should have maintained the tension in the middle by playing f6.
10. 0-0 - Instead he should have started trading off here.
18..Nc6 - Yeah, Kc7 heading for b8 would've won.
19... Kd6 - Kd8 (Threatening mate on f1 and e1) looks best here, and after Nd2 Qxc3 protects everything.
thanks Akuni. Just noticed there that i had a response!Are you a french fanatic member also? I have played french for years but have tried to se other openings recently.
Anyone else have any ideas?
