    hi zwisch, thanks for the game.

    the 9...Ba6 was a move that i didnt expect and i think it might be a decent try (although ill have to check my database for clarification) but i thought you might have played 16...Qa5/Qc4 when i would play 17.Nb5.

    Ba6 is a rather standard idea in the winawer. I thought for white that 23.a6 would have been better as it makes black unable to defend the b-pawn with the a-pawn. 29...Qb2 might have been a bit better for me.

    I was expecting ....Ba6 to occur sometime but only after ...Nxh4.

    IMO the rook sac was certainly interesting as a Winawer player myself, but maybe better was just ...Qc4 though. I think with the pawn on h5, white is always breaking through with weaknesses on h5 and f7. The h-pawn loss in not a big deal in itself but more the idea that white can advance his own h-pawn and crack open the kingside.

    It got interesting after you snapped the e5 pawn off nicely. playing ...e5 was certainly thematic but I think under the circumstances it is to the benefit of the rooks, maybe better to leave this one until the endgame. Instead maybe swing the c6-N around to f5 looks pretty solid.

    Well played, it was an interesting game to watch.

    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    does 11.Bd3 instead of 11.Bxa6 get played all that much ?

    i also like the idea of this move.

    Seems reasonable with the N on g6. Otherwise you need to watch out for ...c5 Ne2 ...c4

    The Black Ng6 was badly placed. It's going no-where, and makes it hard to defend the Ph5.

    14... cxd4 is a move that's reserved for Black to play. I.e., with a modicum of care, White should not be able to play dxc5 with advantage. So this should have been delayed. When played, it allowed the White N to become active, prompting Black to sac the exchange for insufficient compensation.

    35. or 36. Qxh4 is also worth consideration.
