The game was SUU - it stands for "Super Ultra Unrated" - played just for fun. It was also an eye-to-eye game.
If you find better lines wherever in the game, just share it with us.
P.S.: Look at the post #11!
Recommendations or comments appreciated for both sides.
Novelty was probably on 8.f3, but even 6...Nc6 in Opocensky is not usual.
What about 30...Ra5?!
Yup, it works too.
8.f3 is the novelty according to my database.
Very good game by both sides except that blunder at move 15.
Which database do you use? I played black and (stupidly) blundered. Sorry Jan.
Daeru, just one more question. Can you say where's novelty in THIS game?
Much as I hate to question a 2100 rated player, even if white could not have played 16. Nd5, why would you capture 15. ...gxf6 when you could do it with the bishop and not double up the pawns?
Because he was afraid to lose d6 pawn and overlooked Nd5. If 15...Bxf6 I can play 16. Rxd6 and win a pawn. But when we Bxf6 analysed with computer, Rxd6 doesn't give black any big advantage (evaluation is around 0,2 for white).
And You shouldn't hate to ask questions to 2100 rated player. He's not that good :).
So, soon Ardweaden (Jan) or me (Miha) will post "upgraded" version of my first post. If you can find some interesting lines or just a move which creates strong continuation e.g. bishop pair or something putting more pressure etc., post it! :)
We'll be glad. :D
OK, here's final analysis :)
What do you mean? :)
What do I mean? Awesome kibitzes! Hope you'll do it to 3 remaining games too!
