I think he just wanted his Sicilian line in reverse.

I'm often wondering whether I should play more aggressive opwnings than I do, but i think I was helped in this game. Nice when it works.
I think perhaps I would miscalculate or miss something in a complex game against someone my own grade or higher.

I'm not used to attacking so overtly!

[It's looking like this might be my last game for quite some time :-(]

A must-win with black is tricky even when you outgrade your opponent, but you made it look easy.

Any idea why he played such a limp opening? Is there a DVD out by some ropey old IM about off-beat psychological surprises with an early a3 or something?

As your knights on ..Nc6 already it must be a tough position. Take it you can't castle on move 13 and white's d5 looks tough to face. How were you feeling about the position around here (I don't know this theory).

Were you getting slightly excited later when you a-pawn started rushing forward?



I thought I was OK in the opening unless he spotted the idea of playing an early Ng5, not that I could do anything about it, I realised. I thought I had good chances after I grabbed the a-pawn although I realised that an out of play rook and his activity meant I was unlikely to be objectively winning. I think I was too tired to be excited!

The computer is less impressed by black's position and it seems that for most of the game the position was either = or +=. 39...Be5 is a ?? Computer say 39...Qb1+ is =. Pity.

I think you are better in the final position because of your nice bishop. Although maybe not that much better because his knights are quite nice, although it's not clear what he can do with them. I think if white tries to expand on the queenside in the final position he will just create more holes.

Your position looked quite rickety early on and I suspect your opponent could have played more ambitioously at some point, e.g. 10.Qf3. You played the opening a bit politely for my taste - I would have tried to get Nh5 or Ba6 working, something like that.

What does the computer say?
