Good man indeed. I remember him playing in a tournament in Norway as far back as in 1981, where he among other things had a forced draw with Black against no less a player than Anthony Miles, but went astray in time trouble. That was a King's Indian too...

Quote:
I am an e4 player normally but I sometimes play the King's Indian as black against d4 and have had problems against this line with f3 so I figured I'd see what he plays against it. I had not seen 5...Nc6 before and didn't know what to do after that move.
The systems with ...Nc6 are complicated ones and requires some study to master. While the most popular approach for White is castling long and attacking on the king side, there is also an interesting line with a3 and b4.

Quote:
I came up with 8. Nd5 over the board. Funnily enough he asked me the same question after the game, "is that theory?". I have no clue, I don't know any theory in this line. I had no grander ideas than to open the c3 square for the other knight so I could develop the bishop. Since Nf4 and Ng3 didn't look that hot to me I could not come up with another way to get the bishop out.
You shouldn't have any hurry in getting that bishop out - there are more urgent business. Actually the bishop is just fine where it is. However, castling long, pushing your kingside pawns and exchanging the black squared bishops, that is a good way to go. Then it is not without importance in many lines that your knight on e2 protects d4. later, according to what Black does, you can play Ng3, Nf4 or even Nc1-b3.

... the Knight is trapped and lost (which means that you've succeeded in sacrificing an exchange to get rid of it, without giving Black a passed Pawn on d4) and the Pawn on c7 is indefensible.
Yes that would work splendid if Black were obliged to check on c2. it seems, however, to underestimate the dynamic potential Black has to his avail.
14.Qe7 f5 15.0-0-0 (15.Qxd6 fxe4 16.fxe4 Nc2+ 17.Kd1 Rf2 looks dangerous for White) fxe4 16.fxe4 (16.Qxc7 exf3) Bg4 looks good for Black. This is just a two minutes analyse, and there might be alternatives for both White and Black, but in general I consider this approach to be more risky for White and less in accordance to the demands of the position.
Therefore, I prefer 14.0-0-0 after which I can meet 14...f5 with 15.Rxd4 exd4 16.Bd3 keeping control and preparing to push the king side pawns. white should be better here.

At this point, with your king on the wrong side of the board, winning would be a real pull. After for instance 21.Re1 (directed against ...e4)Black can play 21...f4 and I fail to see how White should achieve a decisive breakthrough.

Guess it would have been good to know before the game that the King is supposed to go queenside. Given that I see why the bishop might not be in as much hurry to get out.

After 16. 0-0, Bd7; did you consider playing 17. b4 to open lines for trades?

You can always respond to 17. ... ab; 18. Qxb4, b6 by pushing the a-Pawn to a5... and if Black doesn't do this, it's hard to see how he can prevent the line-opening by c5.

Naturally, you would have been better off with holding back the Q-side pawns, playing 0-0-0 and an attack on the K-side instead.

As a rule, nay a law it always pays off with huge dividends to play through some games with the variation one wants before actually employing it. Especially in the case of something as complicated as this line.

I don't think this is correct. I can't possibly see how White is going to get in c5 or a5 in this variation. Black's structure is sound, and he can double his rooks on the a-file attacking White's isolated pawn. I wonder if not Black is better here. And how dearly I would have loved to have a knight at my disposal, they can be terrific in this type of position.
That said, b4 is an idea worth considering, Perhaps White should try 17.b3 with the idea 18,Qb2, 19.a3 and then b4. The difference is then that White will retake on b4 with his pawn and be both prepared for c5 and opposing Black in the a-file.
A possible continuation could be 17.b3 f5 18.Qb2 Bh6 19.Rfe1 (White must prevent ...Be3+ ) fxe4 (19...f4 is rather worse here,) 20.Bxe4 Bf5 ( Can't see anything else for Black, if 20...Nf5 21.Qc3 ) 21.a3 (Possibly 21.a4!? ) Bxe4 22.fxe4 with Qc3 and Rad1 to follow. White should have chances here.
Being an admirer of Petrosian I have also considered 18.Rc3!? with the idea of bringing the king over to the Queen side before undertaking some King side action. While looking cumbersome, it might be quite good. Might be...

But I don't want to play this. As I said before I'm an e4 player. Only reason I played this now is because I couldn't win this game anyway and wanted to see what black plays in this line. That said, if a 2250 player finds it neccessary to sacriface the Queen maybe I should take another look at d4 and this line in particular...

Thanks for all the ideas, I'll look at them next week when I don't work 16 hour days.

I understand what you say. Still it can't hurt to know what one is doing, but never mind that, to each his own.
Actually I start to wonder if White should have taken the queen at all. If you just recapture on e2, it seems to me that you have a nice advantage. The absence of knights are here to your absence, and you are ready to play c5. for instance 12.Be2 Qe7 13.b4. Now on 13...b6 14.c5 comes anyway, while on 14...f5 you just play 15.0-0 and then c5. The absence of the knights on c3 and f6 works to your advantage here, since you will open the lines on the queen side anyway while Black has one attacking piece less than in similar lines of the classical variations.
Anyway whether Black blundered or sacrificed his queen 11...Nxe2 is not good. Simply 11...h6 holds, since 12.Nxd4 exd4 13.Bxh6 fails to 13...Qh4+. After 12.0-0-0 Nxe2+ 13.Qxe2 Kh7 White is slightly better, but that is all.

You're welcome. The intention with publishing games should be to get feedback, and I have been too neglectful with providing that recently, I will try to increase my activity on this particular part of the forum.
And 16 hours a day?? Moses...

Nothing really prideworthy but I felt like sharing anyway. I'm starting to find G-45 (and G-30 ) more & more exhausting, looking forward to Amateur Team East this weekend with classic time controls, hopefully I will make a better show.

I have only had time to look superficially on the first one, but 13.Bd2 doesn't seem to meet the requirements of the position. Instead 13.Qe4 (13.Bd3 with the same ideas can perhaps be met by 13...f5 in which case it is less precise) with ideas like Bd3, h4 and Bg5 with good attacking prospects is what one should expect. One doesn't usually wreck one's own pawn structure and then passively defend the weakest pawn.
Anyway you got a nice position - I don't think 14...Rd8 is so good, why not 14...Na5 followed by ...b6, and 19...h6 probably a mistake. If you had played 20.Ne4, you would still have good attacking chances. The queen can go to g4 and in some variations Nf6+ can be highly unpleasant for Black, there might even be an opportunity for a bishop sacrifice on h6.
I must confess am sceptical to the virtues of 10.Nc3. It used to be the main line in this variation, but if Black plays 12...Qa5 (With the idea 13.Qe4 Qa4!) he has very little to fear. Instead Sveshnikov's idea 10.Re1 should, in my opinion, be preferable and promising for White.
I will have a closer look on this as well as those other two games of yours later.

Played my first OTB games for a while yesterday evening, here's the first game. Dropped a pawn in the opening, but hit back and scored a nice win. I went 4-0-0 that night as well - although all the other games were against considerably weaker opposition.
Setting: in my student bar, pint in hand. Quite a bit of background noise from people watching darts (how can people bear to watch darts! It's so boring!) but few interruptions.
Opponent: a guy who I knew had experience playing in county/local leagues. He had no indication of my skill level before the game it should be noted.

[Date "????.??.??"]
[Result "1-0"]
[FEN "rnbqkbnr/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNBQKBNR w KQkq - 0 1"]
[White "Me"]
[Black "Him"]

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 { Here I went up to the bar and ordered my Guinness. When I returned my opponent had not moved, but soon he played ... } 4...g6 { The Accelerated Dragon - the game transposes into the main line of the Hyper-Accelerated Dragon, a line I know some theory in. } 5.Be3 Bg7 6.Nc3 Nf6 7.Bc4 O-O 8.Bb3 { White's only good try here. Other tries such as 0-0 allow equalisation for Black eg. } ( 8.O-O Nxe4! 9.Nxe4 d5 { And Black often gets the better game here. } ) 8...Qa5 { A decent move and it deviates from the main line, which was 8...a5. Now I have to think a bit more. } 9.O-O { Defending the e pawn. } 9...d6 10.h3 { Stopping Bg4. } 10...Bd7 11.f4 Rac8 12.Nce2? { Ok, so my lack of practice came into call here. It's just a pawn blunder. } 12...Nxe4 13.c3 { This was my idea with Nce2 - shoring up the long diagonal and the c-file. } 13...d5 { Ok, so Black is doing alright for himself here. I have to create complications. } 14.f5 { The queen is shut off across the 5-th rank, so I played f5 to get some stuff happening. } 14...e5 { Not sure about this. } 15.fxe6 fxe6 16.Nf4 { Notice e5 isn't possible here because of Nxd5! in reply. } 16...Rce8? { Defending the pawn? Actually it allows a nice combination starting with a sacrifice! } 17.Ndxe6! { Right back in the game. I've been playing well since that stupid pawn blunder and now I seize some initiative. } 17...Bxe6 18.Nxe6 { The point is after 18...Rxe6 19.Bxd5! keeps me in the driving seat. } 18...Rxf1+ ( 18...Rxe6 19.Bxd5 { And I think White is better. } ) 19.Kxf1 { Of course not 19.Qxf1? Rxe6. } 19...Ng3+ 20.Kg1 Nf5 { Fair play, the knight forces the bishop to move here really. I decide just to keep it on the king's diagonal. } 21.Bf2 Be5 { Probably a good move, keeping his strong dark square bishop on the board. } 22.Bxd5 Kh8 { Sidestepping the discovery. } 23.Ng5 { The knight moves to safety, and stops the Rd8 pin by a fork threat. } 23...Kg7 { Removes the fork threat. } 24.Qb3 { I like this move. It clears the back rank for the rook to enter the game, attacks b7, sets up a bishop and queen battery - it does a lot of things! } 24...Re7 { He defends b7. } 25.Re1 { Bringing my rook into the action. } 25...Nd8 { He might have played Nd8 and then Re7 - I can't remember. This is retreat, but what else is there - here the knight stops a myriad of threats. } 26.g4! { Keeping the attack going! The knight must move ... } 26...Nh6 27.Rxe5 { ...after which the d4 square becomes available! Unfortunately the pretty Bd4 first failed as Bxd4 in reply was check, but this option is still inviting. } 27...Rxe5 28.Bd4 { My position is strong. } 28...Qc7 29.Bxb7 { A pawn grab which is probably not that good an idea. Still, a pawn is a pawn. } 29...Kf8 { Not trying to grab the bishop with 29...Nxb7? 30.Ne6+ } ( 29...Nxb7 30.Ne6+ ) 30.Nxh7+ { The best way I could see to continue the attack! } 30...Ke7 31.Qb4+ Kf7 32.Qf8+ { I go on a king hunt, but his knights control a lot of squares! } 32...Ke6 33.Qf6+ Kd7 { Thought I had mate here with Nf8 but it is not. } 34.Bxe5 { It's finally time to take the rook. } 34...Qxb7 { Now this should be a won game. I tried to find a way to force queens off, but could not see anything. If Qg7+ Nhf7 defends it (for a while). } 35.Qd6+ { So I stuck with a safer option. } 35...Kc8 36.Qc5+ Kd7 { Maybe Nc6 was a better try. } ( 36...Nc6 { And Black can still hope for counterplay perhaps. } ) 37.Nf6+ Ke6 38.Qd6+ Kf7 39.Qxd8 { This I thought was a sure win. He has no safe checks and I am a piece up. } 39...Qxb2? { He just goes for counterplay, but it is losing immediately. I found a forced mate in 3. } 40.Qe8+ Kg7 41.Nh5+ Kh7 42.Qh8# { A great win for me. At least some of this internet chess has translated into actual chess skill. }
1-0

Analysis is pretty cursory to be fair, still haven't had time to look at it properly yet.

That's my line (as black), you certainly have to be careful in it (as you showed), not for the faint of heart!

Nice finish.

I just finished up with Amateur Team East. It was a blast, I posted some pics here and will post some games shortly.

My two nicest games from the event (I got 4.5 of 6 overall) :

Strangely enough I had no technical endgames at all, every game was over before 40 moves.

I bet you've never encountered anyone playing 12.Nce2 against your line

You played some awesome games, they all seemed to be dominated by piece play, it was a real complicated battle out there!
The first game was just hectic, you really went for him. Can't help feel you might have missed some chances there.
Awesome take-down of the 2200+ dude in the second - with Black as well! Had him on the defensive straight from the off, just tied him up. You made it look easy!
The third game was a clean finish from him, what can be said - I was surprised by that f5 counter-break from him - don't think I would ever have looked at something like that. I guess your mistake was that your d5 square just became too weak after you exchanged off your lsb, then opened the d-file for him. Your bracketed continuation would have been nice, controlling the centre and shutting d5 off again. But I guess you can't win every round! (That said it was still a good fight )

Cool pictures too, the 8 year old dude must be a tough opponent with such powers of concentration for that age.

Well I don't play Qa5, if I did I play enough blitz that I'd be sure to see it sooner or later (and maybe slip up just like your opponent, I get very nervous with my queen "off sides" and try to be extra careful about it, usually it's safe in Marcozy bind situations).

I definitely did (miss some chances). 16. Ne3 was not what the doctor ordered, passive & not in the spirit with my attack up until then, I thought forever about this move too but there were a half dozen better than it (Bc3, Nf6, Nf4 to name a few). Even after my move though I was still quite a bit better but slowly started losing my edge & I'm not really sure how (the computer gives various lines that would have maintained an edge but I can't say I fully understand them, I do understand my letting both his knights come back at me with vengeance wasn't a good idea). Fortunately the struggle was so intense & I was so (genuinely) crestfallen over blundering my position & my knight that my opponent greedily gobbled it up, missed the stalemating possibility. Believe it or not I didn't even notice that I had that chance until after I sacced the rook (I just figured that was the best move to hope for counterplay, maybe with some hope of perpetual check if he messed up). After he takes back though there is no way to escape the checks. I immediately offered him a draw at that point (which seemed to have surprised some of his teammates but being a good sport and in the interest of conserving energy he immediately accepted).

Thanks! It's funny, I didn't have much confidence my attack would work, I felt almost embarrassed playing h6 and Rg8, like "this is so obvious, there's no way it will work" but I knew I had to play aggressively as even a draw wouldn't cut it since my team was outgunned 300-400 points on every board (my only complaint about the Amateur Team tournament is you tend to play up & down, 300 points down one match, 300 up the next).

Yeah, I felt like I was toe to toe with him until the passive 22. ... Bf6. Nxc3 would've been cute but I wasn't up to the task of calculating all the possible queen retreats. A good lesson though, it's always fun when two knights can work together, I have trouble enough calculating one sometimes.

Yeah, he had a level game with me a few months back actually. I couldn't get any edge in the opening & was perhaps worse before he slipped up in the endgame.

Just dug up the game, looks like I blundered terribly on move 22 with Qe7 (which allows Re8 and it's all over) but fortunately for me he missed it.

This weekend I had to play in our first team due to several of our other players not being able to make it. So this game is from the Swedish Division 2. I was white on board 7. They had an unusually weak team as well so I was actually a few points higher rated than my opponent. A little tired after the 3 hour drive I still felt motivated to play and thought I played my best game for quite some time. Of course I still lost but then again I always lose.

I got a fantastic position after the opening but failed to make anything of it. As an exercise you can try to find where I missed an oppertunity to win a pawn and then a little later a piece. 19. Nxg6 was the wrong decision and on 21. bxc5 I captured the pawn too fast. I should have waited before taking it. Maybe I could have saved my b-pawn by taking the rook and then playing b5 but I didn't think I could hang on to it for long. Maybe I was wrong, not sure. Still, I didn't think my play was bad enough to deserve a loss.

My results in the league so far has been pretty poor. I am however doing well in my club championship. After the loss I posted above against a 2250 player I have won three games so far. The last one in particular is one where I played pretty well I think. While his current rating is only 1738 he was over 1900 only a while back and I think he is very under-rated. This was my first win against him in a game with longer time control (This was a game 60 with a 30 second increment per move).

He always play the King's Indian Attack so I spent some 6 hours looking for the best position I could get as black. I settled for the one in the game where the computer gives me about -0.40 after 7. Re8. Good thing I knew he wouldn't go into the Caro-Kann since I would have had no idea what to do there I thought I had looked at everything he could play but it turned out I had not looked enough at c3. In most lines I was planning Nc5 but I could never get it to work out after exd5 followed by d4.

10..Qb6 immediately followed by Qc7 next move might look funny and I guess Qb6 wasn't that great of a move. Still, I think getting the Queen to c2, not that he HAD to go there but still, was good for black as the Queen usually belongs on e2 in the KIA. Also it was only after playing Qb6 that I found the plan b6 and Ba6. Then we had some manouvering going on. He is a very aggressive player and he WILL attack you with everything he can throw at you. I was pleased with not allowing him too much play against my King and pretty much preventing the move f4 throughout the game. With my a- and b-pawns against his b- and c-pawns I figured I had some chances for an outside passed pawn in the endgame.

35. Nf1 was bad, allowing my knight to go to f4 and things sort of went downhill for him from there. I missed 40...Qe2 with a massive -10.00 I think it was. I was happy to grab a second pawn with a solid -4.00 or so. I managed to play it out with the best moves after that and get the point. While I did let my advantage slip away to 0.00 in the middle of the game I was never worse and was able to capitalize on his mistake on move 35. (He was getting a bit low on time at this point and in the end he was down to less than a minute playing with his 30-second increment.)

I was very happy with this game and I'm very rarely happy with my games regardless of the result.

Chess is a tricky business. One wrong move and you're in for it no matter how well you've prepared.

You know I play positionally more often so don't expect a brillant sacrifice if I post a game again.

That's why I enjoy playing versus computer more. You finally get this good ELO player who plays decently first 30 moves, and then bam, he makes a mistake and your satisfaction with game goes down.

In real life you can be sure that people prepare for their games - they have studied your openings, they have a chess coach who has told how badass player you are etc, but in online play you can't be sure if opponent is a Master trolling newbs playing blitz, or an aspiring young player who will dominate his age group given few years.

I dislike playing the computer for that very reason. In my experience it plays the opening perfectly and then makes one or more major mistakes to compensate for it.



In the end I came third in our club championship with a 5/7 score. I lost to the two highest rated players (2251 and 1902 respectively). Here is the last round game where I won against an 1836 player. During the opening I wasn't very happy with my position but the computer seems to think I had a good game all along. Then he made that mistake you were talking about in the quote and handed me the game.

This is the game I lost to the 1902 player. I'm not quite sure where I went astray but somewhere around move 20 things started to go horribly wrong. He missed a lot of faster wins so even if it might look sort of close until the end it really wasn't.

To be honest, in master level everyone plays opening perfectly from the heart. And to sound even more arrogant, I started playing when I was 4 and devoted all my childhood to chess, and teens too.

As you can see from my games I'm very far from master level. I guess I can see the computer giving a more even performance at that level. I started playing chess at age 9 but unfortunately I have no talent at all.
