Another smooth thematic win blackcrowman, nice.

I managed a draw against an IM (Alexei Slavin) on Monday night in a league match - my first good result in an age. I had white.

The accelerated queenside play (compared to non-kingside) was striking!
Hava to think that when white's Bc2 got swapped off that he should be in trouble.
Also strange to think that black normally is looking to quickly swap his own white squared bishop - but yours looked majestic heading the pawn structure - far from being a 'big pawn'.

P.S: I still don't understand the French.

Then in this afternoon game, I again miscalculated when I thought I was nabbing a pawn. My 14..cxb3 was lazy - I hadn't even considered 15.axb3. How poor is that?!
I was fortunate to get some material back straight away. The material balance got a bit crazy towards the end - in my desperation. With 2 queens I thought I might have a perpetual for a moment (as one of the queens cover h7) until my opponent spotted a rook sac leading to mate.

It's quite an amusing game (I think) but my poor attention to opponents reply is a common mistake of mine at the moment.

Pretty exciting game. I thought your opponent played very well.

I think so. I'm new to the Russian System so still finding my feet. That one was encouraging.
This move order (4.Qb3) seems to cut out the ..Bg4 line and I gather the ..a6 is slightly incorrect here too. As these are popular lines, I like this move order thing. Haven't yet spotted a down side.

Not sure I've learnt much from this game though.
I'll have to find my recent loss for the county. Strange imbalances in that game.

My most recent game was a club game. I'm try out the 4.Qb3 vs the Grunfeld. It transpose to plenty of Russain System positions but cuts out a couple of very popular options. My opponent after the game said he was struggling to remember what to play vs the Russian System and wasn't sure how my line was different.

My opponent seemed to get his pieces mixed up. He had a lot covering the d5 square but nothing helping with a ..c5 or ..e5 break. I thought my queen moves where a little odd but thought that if it was safe enough that maybe it could have good hassle factor.
In the end, he was so restricted that my a-pawn seemed to tip the balance.

I quite enjoyed this game as I'd been blundering a lot lately (though mostly getting away with it).

me (172) vs opponent (163)
