  FSR: Yowza! Dandridge is a very dangerous tactician.
Apr-11-17  Moszkowski012273: That sack on f7 is actually unsound. Correct play with 14...d5 gives black a healthy advantage after returning the pawn.
Apr-11-17  ChessHigherCat: <Moszkowski012273: That sack on f7 is actually unsound. Correct play with 14...d5 gives black a healthy advantage after returning the pawn.> What about 14..d5 15. Rd1? If Qb6+ 16. Be3 Qxb2 27. Rb1 Qa3 28. Rb3 and if Qa5 Rxd5 and black is in bad shape.
Apr-11-17  Moszkowski012273: 14...d5 15.Rd1,d4 and Black DOES hold advantage.
Apr-11-17  ChessHigherCat: <Moszkowski012273: 14...d5 15.Rd1,d4 and Black DOES hold advantage.> Sorry but I'm still not convinced. For example 14...d5 15.Rd1,d4 16. Be3 Qb6 17. Nd5 attacking the Q and threatening Qxg6 followed by Nf6+ exf6 Nxf6+ Kf8 Qe8#
Apr-12-17  Moszkowski012273: 16.Be3?... drops a whole piece after ... Bf5
Apr-12-17  ChessHigherCat: No, it doesn't. Remember the d pawn is already on d4 in this variation. 16. Be3, Bf5 17. Bf2 and so what? If 17...Bxe4 then 18. Nxe4,
If 17. dxc3 then simply Rxd8+
Apr-12-17  Moszkowski012273: Dude... 17.Bf2 and Queen ANYWHERE off that file drops a piece. EVEN ...dxc3 is easily winning for black. You might want to set it up on a board.
Apr-12-17  ChessHigherCat: ANYWHERE like Qb3? In that case, dxc3 BxQ! Do you mean that even dxc3 RxQ is easily winning for black?
Apr-12-17  Moszkowski012273: A- the Queen cant legally move to b3 you mean b6.

B- ANYWHERE as in c8 f8 b8 or e8

And C- YES 17.Bf2,dxc3 is easily winning for black.
