White did not have a clear plan.

Ok, I agree on that point. White was playing for a draw. So?

I don't think that's how to play for a draw against a Semi-Slav because it's a proverbial coiled spring. If you don't combat it effectively then you can get into trouble, so Salah has a point.

Shouldn't black be playing for c5 in the Semi-Slav? Strange that it was never played.

lol this thread is still going, haha. I was just posting the game cuz I felt like it was a nice and instructive game. Of course Its true that I shouldnt have mocked someone just for being 1700. As I said previously its not my type to do that, I just like an explanation when someone says: 'your opponent played bad'. If I was to critique a stronger player I would provide an explanation. directly with it. But I am in the wrong aswell as I went too far.

 

As for the title, its like when you tell someone: 'youre crushing it' you dont actually mean that hes beating it just that hes doing great at it, here It was meant to have the same meaning, but I respect the banter from you guys.
