  tpstar: The Ruy Lopez Open with 6. Re1, where on 8. Nxe5 Black should interpose 8 ... Be6 and retreat the Nc5 to d7. One way White can force ... Ne6 is by 8. d4 instead, but Black still gets a reasonable game. After 11 ... f6 12. Nf3 I prefer 12 ... Rf7 so the Ne6 doesn't get pinned, although Black's Queenside is still hard to develop. Then 13. Na3!? Bxa3 13. bxz3 Qd5 14. Qb3 b5 and both sides got hit by an ugly stick. =)

Apr-13-06  you vs yourself: A note on the above game.

When I played 13.a4, my intent was to play 14.Na3. But when I saw 13...Qd5, I was tempted to trap the queen rather than develop my pieces. I lost focus after I saw that the trap will not work after h5 or Bb4.

Then Ra4?? I saw c5 in my analysis, but then I figured dxc5 will win the bishop; but Bxc5 is a check! These tactics are so easy when I'm solving the puzzles, but in actual games I miss them:(

Apr-13-06  Luckyicekiller: Hey, TP, any chance you could play me on in the chess section? Or via AIM by saying the moves? It would help me improve my game, I think
Apr-19-06  aazqua: This is a notable game??
It's a draw?!
Apr-19-06  aazqua: I take that back. It's a win for black

  Honza Cervenka: I don't think that Tibor Florian could play in a match of Czechoslovakia with England. White was almost certainly Jaromir Florian
