8...Nxd5 9.Nxd5 Bxg5 10.Nxg5 c6 (if 10...Qxg5 11.Nxc7+) 11.Nxf7 Kxf7 12.Qf3+ Kg8 13.Bc4 Be6 (13...cxd5 14.Bxc5+ and mate next move) 14.Ne3 Bxc4 15.Nxc4 = . Of course, I never analysed this at the time as Black played 8...Ng4.

Really? After 8...Nxd5 9.Nxd5 Bxg5 10.Nxg5 White is a piece ahead.

Hi all

I recommend the following annotation to be checked out and feedback given to the game annotator who is: JoeMiddleton

Game quotation:

A bad Knot of Knights...

Game introduction:

This was a fairly interesting and solid game - one blundering plan in the middle but in fairness this was against a strong attack. No excuse for tying myself in knots in the beginning though. More (More? I don't have any!) opening theory required.

Game conclusions:

Got into a mess with Knights in the opening - miscalculated plan in the middle game - exacerbated by a smooth attack by White. Lesson - think plans through more clearly!
