What do i do here? (ended up losing...)

    7.Qf3 was the root of all evil. Perhaps you were hoping for 7...Nd6??

    Morally, you lost because of playing for a trap. 8...Nc5 would have killed you quickly.

  • #3

    silentarius, I was looking at the Bishop & Queen attack on F7 along with the knight pin. i was thinking if 8...Nc5 9. QxF7 Kd7 and possibly taking the knight or maybe Qf5 check but didtn look much past that. 

  • #4

    I'm talking of 8...Nc5, not 7...Nc5.

    I'm just seeing that White could try 8...Nc5 9.Qg3 Nxd3+ 10.Kd2, but the simple 10...Nb4 11.Nxc7+ Kd7 12.Nxa8 Bxa8 is very good for black and there may be even better alternatives.

    You've commented on a lot of moves but not 7.Qf3 (which was dubious) and 8.Bd3 (which was bad).

  • #5

    yea, i still have a long way to go...i dont think i see the board that well yet. Qf3 i understand, i shouldnt have put my queen in range of the bishop but why was Bd3 bad? too passive? 

  • #6

    8.Bd3 Nc5 simply loses material.

    A few more notes:

    4...b5 was an error from your opponent, 4...e5 was correct.

    After 5.e5 b4 (or 5...Nd5 Nxb5) 6.exf6 bxc3 7.fxg7 Bxg7 8.bxc3 you should in either case win the Pc4 with a very comfortable position.

    Instead of 7.Qf3, you should still have an advantage after 7.Nf3, followed by O-O. In open positions rapid development is most important.

    I suggest that you analyse the game with an engine. In such highly tactical positions they are superior to any human player.
