Please send me your games! I would love to analyze them!

Recently: Still analyzing my games from Cardinal open. Please take a look! (http://blog.chess.com/zkman/game-analysis-kasiurak---vilenchuk).

Exercise: Solution to yesterday's exercise


The next exercise is from my own game.








Game Analysis:

I found this game on "We need more amateurs to post games here". I thought this opening would be pretty helpful to review for less experienced players. Thank you theweaponking for posting your game!


Just as you said in your comments, 4. ...h6? is a mistake. There is no reason to play this move! After white castles, you can easily defend f7. 4. ...Be7 and if 5. Ng5 0-0! is very strong!
On move 9 there is a much better move! Always remember there are 3 ways to get out of check! 
I apologize if this material was of "too low" of a level. I think these concepts are important to review for all level of players. 
If you would like your game analyzed, please don't hesitate to send me your games! Also, please post your comments and feedback they are much appreciated.
All the best!
