  tpstar: I don't get this at all. Black just regained the gambit Pawn (14 ... Qxe5) with a nice centralized Queen and a tangible spatial advantage, then avoids 15 ... ed 16. Bxd3 opening up the game for fun. I like leaving the Queen on e5 for now to prevent 17. b4 but also eyeing h2. There are chances for both sides, but I think a better game for Black with 15 ... ed versus 15 ... Qe7.

devildragon665-tpstar0 (Yahoo 8/30/04): 10. Ne5 Bd6 11. f4 0-0 12. 0-0 Bxe5 13. fxe5 Qd4+ 14. Kh1 Qxe5 15. d4 ed 16. Bxd3 Bg4 17. Qd2 Rad8 18. Qf4 Qxf4 19. Rxf4 Be6 20. Nc3 Nd5 21. Nxd5 exd5 22. Be3 Nc6 23. Bc5 Rfe8 24. Ra4 Rd7 25. Bb5 Rc8 26. b4 Bf5 27. c3 (27. Rc1) Rcc7 28. Bxc6 Rxc6 29. Rxa7 Rxa7 30. Bxa7 Rxc3 and later drawn (1/2-1/2).

Aug-31-04  paverynest: Maybe black felt that the e4 pawn (passed and potentially protected after f5) was better than while's d pawn. Plus the pawn at e4 gives black space and cramps white's game.

  tpstar: <paverynest> Welcome to the group! Thank you very much for your comments; those are great points. Personally I have not had good results against 11. d4 Qc7 12. Bf4 c5 13. c3, as White has an extra Pawn plus a solid foothold in the (closed) center with the mighty Ne5, so I prefer 11 ... ed 12. Nxd3 as giving Black better chances despite being a Pawn down. By extension I like 15 ... ed here as well. Time will tell how I do with it! ;>)
