    At this game I manage to do a mat over the board

    I won it, but I'm sure I could do much better. Check my thinking.

    5... Bxc3 looks like a bit of an inaccuracy as the bishop has not been provoked to take the knight. Having doubled pawns on c2 and c3 is usually not a major problem for white. Some alternatives include ... Nf6 and ... e6 where black simply develops.

     

    7... Nxe4 runs into Qd5, which double attacks the f7 pawn and the e4 knight. If the knight retreats to g5, then white can play Bxg5 with a checkmate threat and attack on the queen (removing the defender). Black can simply play Nd6 though and defend the pawn. A continuation may be 7... Nxe4 8. Qd5 Nd6 9. Nxe5 Where white has a lot of pressure on f7, but black can stay calm and play 9... Qf6.

     

    7. Nxe5 Nxe5 8. Qd5 d6 9. Qxe4 and 0-0 seems like another option for white.

     

    After obtaining a material advantage, continue to look for simple moves. 12... Nxe5 is a free piece. White will most likely not have enough material to even consider attacking after move 12.

    4... h6 looks a bit timid, shouldn't you be developing pieces?

    5... Nano - are you sure about this?The Ruy Lopez Exchange Variation involves a similar BxN.

    Thx for the feedback guys.

    @Nanobot16: 5.Bxc3 is as Mal noted a fairly normal variation there, and the exchange is a personal preferance as I often struggle to keep the knights contained. Your other insights are spot on.

    @Mal_Smith: 4.h6 is perhaps a bit timid but counters a very spesific and bothersome threat I've been struggling with, it takes away g5 from that knight, avoiding some embarrasing breaks into f7, or even pressuring my Queen if he can get his bishop up there. It may still be timid but it comes from some really bad experiences, so if it is a poor move I'd love some ideas of variations keeping my concerns in mind Embarassed

    You're reacting to threats that aren't there yet, and maybe never will be. You haven't time to mess around like that. Have a look at the Masters database - no 4... h6; 4...Nf6 is highly favoured and is simply Basic Opening Principle Number #1 - DEVELOP DEVELOP DEVELOP (Knights first usually...) and BOP #2: don't move any unnecessary pawns in the opening. 

    Caveat - your point about the Bishop moving to that square and pinning the Knight against the Queen is a good one, moving to h3 then doesn't chase the B away, ie., doesn't break the pin. Moving to h3 before the bishop can pin is a good idea, but the B can't move at all yet as it's stuck behind the Q pawn. Looking at Masters database you do see some moving h3 when the threat of the B moving us actually there. What if the N shuffles off in another direction and the B fianchettos? Then h3 was for nothing.

    My drawn game in which I played well for most of the game. This was played at 15m+10s in the last round of a tournament. I had lost both my previous games to this player and he is better than me and higher rated, so I was pleased to get a draw.

    @cashcow8 I'm not sure, but it looks like a Fritz analysis to me, I think the goal of the topic is a "personnal" annotation ! happy.png
