Game #9. Anna's Many Pawns...
but gaining a piece is NOT worth losing a lot of pawns
- 8. f6 not f5 as the f5 just allows the pawns structure to solidify with a poor placement of the black pieces. the Knight is particularly poorly placed. I'm pretty sure after all possible scenarios of f6; its better than f7
- 14. the exchange Nxe5 doesn't resolve any attack- instead ift just makes it much worse; bringing the queen into the fray
- the queen attack though I think was a little unsound (though certainly the best choice a piece down). Rxe5 was much better
- 15. Also I give away pawns on 19,21,23,28, 35... or in short almost all of them (a rook's worth) in 16moves
