1. Nf3 g6
2. d4 d5
3. Nc3 Nf6
4. Ne5 Nd7
5. f4? b6
White is a little too aggressive and exposes his King a
little early (-.6).

12. Nc4 Qa6
Sorry for the unconventional diagram after 12. .....Qa6.
13. c3? b5
(-2.1) White buries his bishop in the corner, never to leave
home. A better idea was 13. Qc3, then if Bxc4, 14. Qxc4, Qxc4 15. bxc4 and more
play available for White.
14. Nb2 Qxa2
15. Kf2 Qxb3
16. Nd1? a5
(-3) It is against one of the golden rule of chess – namely
that the player behind in material should not trade queens – but here White
needs to do just that as the Black queen is just too well placed and powerful.
16. c4 was needed. The game is slipping away from White.
17. Rb2 Qc4
18. Kg1 b4
19. cxb4 f5
20. Rd2? …..
(-3.6) Too much protection on the d-pawn and none for the
20. …… axb4
21. Nb2? …….
The final mistake. White had to give his bishop some work by
protecting that c3 square.
