  technical draw: I'm playing these same moves up to move 7. I hope I trap the queen!

  technical draw: No lucky, man make good move, no lose queen.

Oct-11-13  RookFile: I dislike black's game already, 11....Nge7 doesn't help. White is clearly going to dominate the 32 dark squares, and we're just getting started. He probably did himself a favor by getting this over quickly.

Since this game was played on Dec. 7 my game turned into Pearl Harbor on the losing side.

  keypusher: 11.Rb3 was clever, lulling Black into blocking off the queen's retreat.
