1) Miguel sacked a pawn much earlier in the game for an initiative that proved lasting. Here, white tried to protect f2 by castling (30. 0-0). What's wrong with this?
2) Paulo Santana played 11...c5 here. How should Myles Foster have replied?
8. Coincidentally, James asked me to show him this line 10 minutes before the game. (1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 exd5 4. Bd3 Nc6 5. c3 Qc7). It's the same line I got against Yaacov Norowitz in our USCL game. Black gets an isolated pawn, but white has made some weird moves, lik3 f3. Black has a great move here that shows how weak the dark squares really are.
25. e6 isn't anything special after 25...Ke8.
7) Danny saw that he would win white's central pawns after 21. Nxd5 Qe6 22. Ne3 exd4 23. Rxd4 Rxc5 24. Qxa7, but didn't trust the move and didn't play it. After the game Jaleel found the refutation: 21. Re1.8) Ken Cohen -- James Black
Now if the bishop goes to:
a) g3 we just take it
b) e3 we play Ng4!!: 14. Be3 Ng4 15. fxg4 Bxh2+ (D)
16. Kf2 (16. Kh1? Ng3+ 17. Kxh2 Nxf1+ 18. Kg1 Nxe3) 16... Qg3+ 17. Ke2 Rae8 18. Rf3 Nf4+ 19. Kf1 Qxg2+ 20. Ke1 Bg3+ 21. Rxg3 Qxg3+ 22. Kf1 Qg2+ 23. Ke1 Rxe3+ 24. Qe2 Rxe2+ 25. Nxe2 Qxe2#)
c) g5 and we play Ng6, uncovering an attack on h2 and preparing to harass the bishop with ...h6: 14. Bg5 Ng6 15. h3 (15. g3? Bxg3) 15... h6 16. Be3 Bh2+ 17. Kh1 Ng3+)
d) If it takes the knight on e5, we recapture, and white has big problems on g3 and h2: 14... Bxe5 15. g3 Nxg3 16. hxg3 Bxd4+ 17. cxd4 Qxg3+ 18. Kh1 Rac8 (D)
White can try 15. Kh1 instead, since 15... Bxh2? loses to 16. f4 when the Nh5 and Bh2 are both hanging, but black can maintain a nice position by playing 15...Nf6 or developing a rook.
