and why should white be overly greedy and grab the pawn on c6?
15 Qe2 looks reasonable to me... 2 extra pawns is more than enough
It's actually 1 pawn, and it won't last
And 15. Qf1 isn't any better
i leave you to your computer analysis. :) its an interesting position and white was overly greedy earlier on.
What you will discover is that, after all the analysis that is riddled with tactics, and in spite of the fact that White went pawn grabbing in the opening with his Q, it boils down to a chess game which should end in a draw, if the opponents are evenly matched. Caissa is the just and forgiving goddess of chess.
That is what I discovered after memorizing 400 subvariations of the Poisoned Pawn variation of the Sicilian Najdorf.
But that is what it's all about. You play a game against a worthy opponent and may the best player win. Chess is a great game!
Good Luch/Hardwork/Study in becoming a 'professional gunslinger' ( a very strong player)
Why not 15.Qxc6
Wins another pawn and creats a strong hold!
So, I started this game
But the guy I was playing argued that if he would have moved 12. Qb4, he could have saved his queen AND held onto his 1 point lead. I beg to differ.
Basically, what I want to do is send him a challenge where we start on move 12, so I can prove to him that he's wrong. But, I can't exactly figure out how to do that.
Because after 15.Qxc6 Qb8 and White's Q is lost
