It was a smooth game by white, but seems like you were not too well prepared in the opening and as a result his position somewhat played itself.

This is positionally over!! No chance for black.Permanent weakness in "a" pawn. No counter advantage for black.null

drmrboss

Suggestion.. Must play.6....b6!!, Not Qb6??null

@drmrboss I guess it would interesting to see what an engine thinks of 6. ... b6 over 6. ... Qb6
I thought 5. ... c6 ?! ( Bb4 ). 
I think black can play 11. ... c6xb5 12. Bxb5 0-0 13. Nf3 Nh5 but it is oh err ... as I said in #2

drmrboss

There may have other alternatives, I just noticed that. 6...Qb6 is terrible and 6...b6 is simple and solid.

It seem like you're in a pretty rough spot starting early. Nvm my idea was stupid lol. I had an interesting thought with 20..dxe4 and ...Nf6 but after white plays 21.Ne5 you're just probably going to have to exchange knights

I doubt there is much wrong with 5...c6, I thought 10...a6 was the problem. b5 wasn't much of a threat before then.

22. ..Bxf3, my friend.  Your light square bishop is awful (despite being your best minor piece), as are both of his bishops.  Getting the knight plus doubling his f-pawns (23. Bxf3 Rxb3) and that's plenty of compensation for he bishop pair.  Plus after 23. gxf3 Rb8 and black is clearly better.

Rab8, that is.

Your analysis has some errors. First of all, I assume you mean 21..Bxf3. Second, the doubling of whites pawns isnt helping black immediately and likely just helping white overall. Finally, the b8 square is covered by whites bishop.

Come to central New Jersey where you can be beaten by little Chinese kids and little Indian kids in the same tournament

I was on a cruise awhile back. A little Chinese kid (about 7 years old) and I played a lot. He beat me 75% of the time. The cool thing about it was, he just played for fun...he didn't care if he won or lost!
