1. e4 e5
2. Nc3 h5?! {Not fatal, but... :-) }
3. Bc4 Rh6
4. Qf3 Qe7
5. d3 { The position of White definitly better.... }
5... g5?
6. Nd5 Qd6

... Beginners think that bringing out the rook for attack in the early game helps. That's probably the guy's logic.

yeah... at my school, when we had a chess club, most people play 1.a4...2.Rh3 or 1.e4...2.Qh5...

That move 3...h5?.... is not a good opening move
[my opinion]. :-] The move that
put White into a winning position was
4....Qe7 after move 4.Qf3 White has
advantage but when it is answered by
4...Qe7 then the fatal error is made
[again my opinion]. If Black played
4....Nf6 instead he would still be at a
disadvantage positionally but at least he
started development of his major pieces.
Bringing both the Rook and Queen out
before developing his Knights and Bishops
is a terrible strategic and tactical blunder.
5.d3 and then g5??? [deserves 3 ? ;-]]
is just another in the series of futile attempts
to protect the exposed Rook while White
quietly continues development of his pieces.
A disaster in the making from 3...h5 Chuck

Passive in opening I'd like to continue to show how troubles could rise in early stage of opening - this time due passive game...
Sorry, I haven't any time for detail annotation, but I hope for your notes and.... I'll return to it later...
So, only a few remarks...

[White "xxx Your sinful"]
[Black "Speedster"]
[Site "www.itsyourturn.com";]
[Date "2003.08.03"]
[Time control: 7 days per move]
[Result "1-0"]

1. e4 e5 2. Nc3 Nf6 3. Bc4 Nc6 4. d3 a6?!

Not very bad but it e=was a signal to take my guns and run and fire... a6 is acceptable but better to see it later as in line 3. ... Nc6 4. f4 d6 5. Nf3 a6 or as answer to White's advance of a3

5. f4 Bc5 6. Nf3 exf4 7. Bxf4 h6?

The same - two very passive moves call for punishment...

8. e5 Qe7 9. Kd2 Nh7? 10. Nd5 Qd8 11. e6! dxe6?! 12. Nxc7+ Kf8 13. Nxa8 e5 14. Bg3

I allready thought the game is done so quickly returned by my Bishop...

14. ... e4 !

Like hand of sand to face! At first, when I saw it I smiled - last convulsion... But later I went into shock - what to do... And White some time had to be very carefully as one incorrect move could draw a game into draw or even worse....
Fortunately, I had next move...


15. Bc7! Qf6 16. dxe4 Ng5 17. Qe2 Nxf3+

After taking b2 pawn by Queen 17. ... Qb2 I must attack Queen with h Rook - 18. Bhb1 - in other cases Black gives permanent check...

18. gxf3 Nd4 19. Qd3 Nxf3+ 20. Kd1 Bg4 21. Qd8+ !

That's all...

21... Qxd8+ 22. Bxd8 g6 23. Bf6 Rh7 24. Be2 Ke8 25. Nc7+ Kd7 26. Nd5 Bh5

I've relaxed again and make a small mistake... Anyway, in position like that mismall things don't count...

27. Rf1 Nxh2 28. Rh1 Bxe2+ 29. Kxe2 Ng4 30. Rh4 h5 31. Rah1 Nf2? 32. R1h2 Ke6 33. Rxf2

1-0

Now - Your judgement...
loreta 7 ( +1 | -1 )
Note: Just to append I know , my opponent the last part of game was playing not the best way...
loreta 4 ( +1 | -1 )
? Does anybody want to be continued?
brucehum 69 ( +1 | -1 )
Very small notes When your opponent moved Nh7?, going to a very passive square, it probably was better Nh5. At least, you are attacking the bishop, and it is a better square than h7 for your knight! Now the 11.e6! move from the game (with knight at h7) doesn't work, because if : 9... Nh5 10.Nd5 Qd8 11.e6 dxe6 and you have 2 pieces under menace. So, something else should be played instead of e6.

Instead of 11...dxe6, maybe better for black:
11...d6 12.exf7+ Kf8 and white has a clear advantage.

After that, you get such an advantage that anything should win... but, because your king can't easily be attacked. If it was the same material advantage, but a completely open position, you have to be VERY careful (as I could experience in an OTB game).

NEW GAME TO REVIEW I'm continue with games having something unusual in the opening...

[Date "2003.08.03"]
[White "xxx, Your sinful"]
[Black "Muzza1"]
[Site "itsyourturn.com"]
[Result "1-0"]
[Time control "7 d. per move"]

1. e4 e6 2. b3!? Qf6!?

White plays in uncommon way, but is it a reason to early development of Queen?

3. d4 Nh6?!

The position clearly 'out of book'.

4. e5 Qf5 5. Bxh6 gxh6

White traded the developed Knight and doubled pawn on h-file. As result Black has g-file for its Rook and White has to take that into account all time.

6. Ne2 Nc6 7. c3 b6 8. Nd2 Bb7 9. Ng3 Qg6 10. Nf3

Developmentfinished, but how to evaluate that position?

10. ... f5 11. d5!? Ne7

White starts some actions in the centre. Mayb, that caused some confusion for Black but I'm not sure if that was necessary. Opinions?

12. dxe6 Qxe6 13. Kd2 Bg7 14. Bc4 Qc6 15. Nh5

It seems that last moves Black (and, maybe, White) played not in the best way

15... Rg8??

That was a clear blunder. But it seems, White has advantage.

16. Bxg8

A game continued till 23th move but the last moves aren't interesting...

? ?
brucehum 28 ( +1 | -1 )
?? It seems not much people like to comment on other people's games?

We can all learn something from somebody else's chess, and playing through their games , if they have taken the job to comment them, and giving our opinion, seems it would help us all!
loreta 20 ( +1 | -1 )
I'm ready to go again with more If somebody is interested in that stuff...
I'm adding some remarks {thoughts why I did that or that and some evaluations} but analysis isn't full...
So I'd like if somebody could leave their notes too...
brucehum 14 ( +1 | -1 )
I am I, for one, am interested in them.

The reason I haven't left any notes to your last game (vs Muzza1) has been time. I will soon.
