Oct-10-04  jose manuel: i don't understand why on move 20,instead of exd5 white didn't take with the bhishop,i mean white has the 2 knights for the rook and should've won the game
Jun-28-05  aw1988: After Bxd5 Bxd5 exd5 Re8 black gets the open file (and maybe the c-file too).
Jun-28-05  PaulLovric: isn't it june?
Jun-28-05  aw1988: Um, second actually.

Sure it's June.

Jun-28-05  PaulLovric: why the name aw 1988?
Jun-28-05  aw1988: I really don't feel like explaining it again.
Jun-28-05  Marvol: <aw1988: After Bxd5 Bxd5 exd5 Re8 black gets the open file (and maybe the c-file too).>

Just like in the game, right? So that didn't make a great difference I suppose.

Given the slightly higher activity of Black's ♗ in the rest of the game, that may have been the preferred option. White's ♗ was just locked up at a2 defending the pawn and threatening nothing.

Jun-28-05  PawnOfTheDead: <aw1988>Oh go on, it's such a good story. I never tire of hearing it. I especially like the bit about the horny gerbils.
Jun-28-05  aw1988: How much have you been drinking!?
Jun-28-05  catlover: <aw1988> I've wondered about your handle, too, but if you would rather not talk about it, that's fine. I don't care much for gerbils.
Jun-28-05  catlover: Looking at this game, you have to wonder where white went wrong. Could it be that instead of 10.Be3 he should have played 10.Bg5 or d5? It seems like by the 11th move, white's weak e pawn and the hole at d3 are already causing him problems.

Anybody have any ideas where white could have improved early on?

Jun-28-05  PawnOfTheDead: <<aw1988>How much have you been drinking?> From a russian, now that's funny.

  kevin86: The pawn certainly decided this one,right?

Is this player related to Darko Milovich-or Donny Darko? lol

Jun-28-05  aw1988: Actually, the Russians are not the biggest drinkers in the world. That honor remains with the Germans.
Jun-28-05  Ziggurat: How about Mongolians?
Jun-28-05  InitiativeCheck: Irish drink more than anyone
Jun-28-05  bridgepro: 10.d5 seems more thematic. Possible is 10....Nb8; 11.N(b)d2, N(b)d7; 12.Bc2 followed by Nf1 and Be3 is white for choice. 10.....Na5 Bb2 leads to not much for black I think.

  OhioChessFan: Just looking at it, Be3 seems to cause many problems. d5 is necessary by the 13th move and definitely not what White wants to do. a3 and Ba2 look like a total waste of time. Maybe 24 Nd4 instead?
Jun-28-05  aw1988: Hello bridgepro, welcome to the site.
Jun-28-05  chessic eric: <<catlover> It seems like by the 11th move, white's weak e pawn and the hole at d3 are already causing him problems.> Is white not okay even after losing rook and pawn to the knights until 19.Kf2 was played? Maybe either Nf1-g3 or Qc2 make good use of white's piece development.
Jun-28-05  chessic eric: I don't see why the tempo 19. Kf2 has to be taken until black has in fact played Re8.
Jun-28-05  I3illiejoe12: The biggest drinkers in the world are the Russians and the Polish, by far.
Jun-28-05  aw1988: The polish?
Jun-28-05  PaulLovric: the croats drink more than anyone, especially if it's slivovic/sliwowitz, the national drink
Jun-28-05  PaulLovric: from move 31. Ne4 onwards, i feel white did it wrong
