Of players aged under 12 that is.
I've played this kid 3 times. He's played the exchange Ruy 3 times. I've lost 3 times.
I tried the ...Bg4 line this time and I was off to a much more promising start in this game compared to our historical encounters. I think there's a fair few instructive points and exciting moments, enjoy!
Thanks for that move 103... g4
nice game but from whites point of view 25 N.c4 is a bad move or at least innacurate 25 nb5 seems like a much stronger place for the knight
Is it really doing so much on b5? c7 is covered and I'm always happy if he trades on d6. It does hit the d4 square one more time but if White plays d4 I can always take with the c pawn first and then play Bb4. In my opinion the position is still dead-drawn after Nb5 or Nc4. Dark squared blockade for the win! (oh, should be the draw).
Yes TeraHammer, 103...g4 is such a nice move. Wish I found it OTB!
yes c7 is covered by the rook but then that means the white is effectivley forcing the black rook to stay in that rank and the white knight is doing a good job there
NIce game against Anton!! That little punk showed so much disrespect playing on for 100+ moves it would've been nice if you stabbed the kid with g4! A brilliant game though makes me wanna study rook endgames! Now you can start the comeback!
A comeback would be fantastic, but unfortunately he'll probably be GM Smirnov in a few years.
I've been getting into rook endings lately and there's a surprising amount of magic to be found. Recommended for boosting your chess sense to a new level!
You might consider 5...Be6 against the Spanish Exchange (with 5. 0-0). Carlsen's played it and you can actually lose a tempo and get a perfectly playable (improved?) version of the same Alapin Gambit (http://www.chess.com/opening/eco/C69_Spanish_Game_Exchange_Variation_Alapin_Gambit) you played, because of the misplacement of White's QN.
