    Excellent game Charles, and congrats on your well deserved recognition! I just wanted to comment on just how much players should realize and fully appreciate just how deep this becomes. First, I am no chess master of ANY kind, lol, that's for now, and for sure, and even though I find my infancy rating here embarassing AT BEST! I KNOW that I KNOW! You know? ;) In other words, I AM finally hitting newer and much much deeper levels of understanding and insight PRECISELY due to my membership here at Chess.com and the extraordinary group of TITLED players here ALONG WITH the training vids and chess.tv that are infinitely available! (I've watched Danny's 10-part pawn structure series 3 times through already, and just in this one very critical, "must know, to play" (and not really suck!) fundamental topic, my overall understanding, that an entire game of chess is no less than existing as an entirely unique experience, yet requires a core foundational playing process that's ALWAYS linear and entirely logical, from start to finish. Wow! I went of on a bit of a tangent here being so re-energized after 2 solid years of mostly confusion and misinformation etc...Anyway, I'll finish up as briefly as I CAN. Just for general opening knowledge to those of us who didn't know before today, Black's play of 4...Bb4 aka The Four Knights/Scotch Bogoljubow, begins and seems to end right there on move 4...fulfilling it's obligatory variational duty just enough to allow White now to follow through with either 5.d5 or 5.Nxe5 propelling it's namesake into now a "Krause Variation", both falling neatly into ECO47. It's interesting to note briefly that 5...Bxc3 and 5...Qe7 complete the limited lines that I have direct access to. This though seems consistent with the low number of games that have been played like this. This truth only serves to place a "double exclamation mark" on the brilliance and sheer depth of thought involved in this game. As a matter of practicality and of necessity, I opened Rybka for the short list of 4...Bb4, and the even shorter one of 5...Nxe5. Briefly, 6.Qf3 was also given in addition to your 6.Qg4. In all of the Scotch's I ran, most of them seemed overwhelmingly simplified open structure type games with excellent chances for Black and at least near perfect mechanical/mathematical outcomes for each IMO, and the second reason that FM Galofre inspired me to this level! There NEEDED to be INEQUALITY in order for White to "pull away". That's taking into account as we all know, many factors, including the type of opening, style, technique, accuracy, and with the limited number of feasible variations for White to attempt, not to mention the IF's, WHERE's, HOW's, and WHEN's, are ever even able to be identified, nevermind played!? But then played at the precise time that it reveals itself to those who seek it! THAT's where the game was won, and then also won the brilliancy prize for me. The move is identified  three moves later on move 8, where YOU may have tanked for 15-20 min., but don't feel bad...Rybka "tanked" for 3:47 "screaming" 6.Nxc6 through literally MILLIONS and MILLIONS of boards, and then suddenly, as if by some unexplainable magic, or just as another mundane task, but with a "nagging uneasiness" requiring a remedy, suddenly...it hiccupped....and then it changed..... to 8.a3. Thank you all for, hopefully accepting, both my chess observations, and lengthy literary indulgences. I thought it would be nice to point these few things out even, no especially because of it's true brilliance and uniqueness . Thank you all! I am INSPIRED! Peace! -JS
