Ponziani Opening

And a very nice ending as per my avitar!  The whole line was from a ton of analysis from the whole team.

I think this puzzle is so hard that I better just give the line rather than make a puzzle out of it...

For once!  I got the puzzle!  (Looked awfully familiar, glad I'm on the team)

Ouch, inaccuracy on move 3 against Carlsen, that will be punished Cool

ajmeroski

But you have to admit it's quite bold from the little girl, especially considering Carlsen winning with it just a few days ago.

Scottrf

Yeah very, the same as with her attack vs Nakamura, she's playing some interesting chess.

C-nack

Lol, it's funny how c3 is marked as -0.05 :D

Looks like Carlsen has read this thread - he follows pfren`s recommendations. Cool

Scottrf

He played f6 instead of Bb4 on move 9, probably forgot the correct move order Wink

He deviates to avoid opening preparations. Wink

So what are the moves so far and how can I follow the game?

pfren

Yes, he didn't check, which is new, and does not seem bad. He followed the rest of the plan, though. Black is still very comfortable.

ponz111

come on guys what are the moves and how can i follow the game?

I posted the link some posts ago. Maybe you will be able to find it somehow.

12.e6 is enterprising, and most probably wrong. White has to play something brutal like 12...Qd6 13.Nc3 0-0-0 14 a4!? to justify it. I don't believe this sort of chess can work here, though.

ponz111

I would have made a different 9th move for White.

 

thanks for giving link to the game 

ponz111

Now that she has played 12. e6 she may be in trouble and my guess she is going to have to try pushing her" " pawn at some point to try and justify her e6 move..

ponz111

should read "a" pawn
