To start this off, I won. However, I think that there is a high probability that there were moves better than the ones i made. I am relatively new to chess.com so my rating isn't very stable yet. Anyways, here is the game:
(sorry if my annotations and variation markings are used incorrectly as i have never used the insert game function)
Any help is welcome.
Well...I can't help you but enjoyed that game...I thought you annotated nicely..it was easy to follow what you were doing...
The closest name is 'Emglish Opening'.
Yes 7.Nf3 looks problematic , and Black could have taken advantage . But what about 7 Bf3 ?. I think 7 Bf3 is good -- doubles the attack on the black Knight and you continue to have the threat on c5 Bishop
After 12 Bxh3 ( I usually like to take offerrings , and try my best to take it). Did you explore 13 d3 ???. Hmm you played that on 14 th move..
Instead of 14 ...Qh5 , can black have played 14.... Bg4 ??
22 g4 was good , but again I think it could have come a move earlier ??
Thanks for posting the game and the annotations are perfect !!
Thank you Sutlej, the alternative for 7 would have been better if black had seen the pawn move. On move 14 ... that could have led to a better game for black definitely and I had not thought of that while I was reviewing the game. As for 22 g4, I had thought of it earlier but decided to keep that for a little since my next few moves would either force a response or win material.
Well annotated (from a strategic perspective) Car Kann, London, Slav games.
