Dec-31-09  ToTheDeath: Wow, great miniature.
Dec-31-09  zanshin: Black started to have problems after castling into White's attack.
Dec-31-09  mysql: Hmm, another "Zukertort Opening". Any books on this?

I think better was the developing move 8. ... Bc5 instead of 8. ... Nf4, then challenge white's b-pawn later with a6 or c6.

According to John Nunn in "Understanding Chess Move My Move", 8...♗c5 9. ♗b2 ♕f6 10. e3 ♘b4 11. O-O ♘d3 12. ♗c3 O-O 13. f3 exf3 14. ♗xf3 with an advantage for White, due to the exposed positions of the Black Knight and Queen.

Mainly for freeing/connecting the rooks.

  perfidious: The capture not being on at f6 after White's 17th due to Bf1+ picking up the queen is a simple, yet piquant tactic.
Mar-06-20  sfm: Reassuring that even a strong GM can run into such a position after 14 moves. White is totally winning, having huge lead in development with well-placed attacking pieces.

According to Stockfish, the right plan for black is to play 10.-,Be6 (equal) then -,Nd7 and long castling. After 10.-,Bc5? White is much better, and 11.-,Qc4? is also bad, putting the queen on a square where Rc1 will make her sweat. It is already over.

Apr-12-22  DaviesNjugunah: lessons learnt here are:-
1. dont make many pawnsmoves in the opening
2. dont move your queen to early in the opening it might get kicked out by low value pieces
