Ahh, the leaping knight variation I think it was recently proven to be unsound on account of dxc4 ;)

For some reason I thought my Nf6 was preventing d5. Which i s why I delayed Bb4

Does that mean you're resigning?

Yes, i resign.

I need to defend with more purpose, especially with white.

Oh well thanks for the game, I actually considered resignation after I dropped the piece, but then I saw I could at least get a bit of initiative so chose to play on. Considering how the game developed I'm glad I did :)

You know if instead of 31.Qc3? You could have played 31.Qxd7 Nxd7 32.Rxd7 and white actually maintains a material advantage with a very unclear position

Yeah i noticed that but i really dont deserve to keep playing with lapses like these.

For some reason i dont defend as well playing white.

Oh in that case thank you

It was really quite intriguing much play and resources black managed to get, and whats more I'm not sure if there are all that many improvements for white or atleast I don't think I would have faired all that much better

I was actually quite happy with my defence prior to the lapse. I was probably concerned with e3/e1 a little bit too much and stopped concentrating once the queen moved to h6 thinking that my chances to swap off pieces had improved. Maybe b4 was a better move than the Bc4 clanger.

Its a surprisingly difficult position to defend really. maybe instead of 25.Qd3?! you could consider 25.h4!? but even then I'm not sure if there is a lot of difference. but instead of Bc4 b4 is definitely a consideration. I actually think ...Qh6 was a !

I thought you would just castle on move 14, taking the B seemed to give black the initiative. Once you played f3 I think black would be pretty happy that he could keep you under pressure and make it hard to develop.

Yes - castling would have been better than the poor knot Tappy got left with.

But congrats to both of you. Some very solid chess.

i didnt even consider 0-0-0 as i thought it would leave the king in an exposed position.

i guess this was the start of the suffocation.

i think i need a break from corro.

I did think white should have gotten in 0-0-0 sometime early in the game. It does seem like its open and might lead to being attacked, however in reality its actually a lot harder for black to organise a counterattack against the white king if it's on the queenside. After that it would be much easier for white to get developed and white would probably have a much easier time converting
