    Hello Jacob,

        Your misgivings about 5) d3 are well placed, but normally in this openning d4 has already been played by white. Placing more pressure on Black's position and giving you more space to manuver.

        Back to your game after d3 your opponent took advantage of you caution by playing d5 seizing the opportunity space and control in the center of the board.

        I think exchanging pawns on move 6 was best play under the circumstances. It black more chances to mess up. It opened up his king position enough to make him quickly defend his king against checks and castling.

    The next move I would like to call into question is move 10) Qd2 I realize that black just pinned your knight against your queen but there is no need to panic. Look at the entire board and see what are the strongest threats. Obviously you felt a threat against your queen. So you did realize that the Knight on c3 could move to d4 or e5 causing trouble. But did you not realize that when the Knight moved from c3 that your white bishop could be trapped with certainty. Making taking the Knight on c3 the best move on the board. Without the Knight black would have no timely or easy way to take advantage of the pin. I believe your oppenent did not realize the pardicament you white bishop was in or might have played differently. At your rating I would have missed that one too. It wasn't till I was about a 1400 rated player that I became coniously aware of those kinds of threats.

         Your opponent played 10) ... Bxf3 This was your best opportunity to complicate maters so much that it worked in your favour. By playing 11)_BxNc6 because most us  don't think like computers. Having to calculate if 11) BxPg2 Bxb7 12) BxRf1 BxRa8  13) BxPd3 Bxc2 14) BxNf6 Bxf6 15) BxPd5 BxNc3 16) Bxf7+ Rxf7 17) QxB is in there favour or not or perhaps they miscalculated somewhere along the line. But that may seem too dangerous to you too.

         You did play 11) PxBf3 your opponent 11) ... N-d4 attacing the f3 and c2 pawns the queen protets the c2 pawn and instead of blundering with 12) Ra-e1 (and we all seem to blunder) you played 12) Kg2. You might get a chance to regroup your pieces before he realizes his advantage.

       Your cooment about using the Bishop to recaptue the Knight is spot on.

     

        On move 15) I would complicate things for black hoping for a blunder on his part. This kinds of things you do when behind. Specifically 15)_RxBe7 Thinking he will play the natural QxRe7 then You could play 16)_NxPd5 Threatening the Queen and trying keep attendtion on the queen he might play 16)... Qe5 Then 17) BxNf6 Queen Check and without things plays 17)...Qxnd5 since 17)... Qxbf6 would be met by 18) NxQf6+ Thus allowing 18) RxPg7+ with mate to follow!! All that does assume mistakes on Black's part, but I think a lot better chances than 15) BxBf6.

    Sincerely,     IKnewHowToPlay

    P.S. I hope I was appropriately respectful.
