Thanks Sunshine. GL GG. I don't know about giving it a go. Giving me a lesson, more like!

I'm out of theory already!

Moves may be sporadic for the next few days - but fine after that

However, it doesn't seem the scariest opening not to know.

Had a feeling you might be 'challenged into something like this.

*lol* Now I don't know if I'm being goaded, raised or psycho-analysed! - it's all good though :) I think it's actually a line though - perhaps Hodgson or at least one of those English nutters.

I think that one is OK.

I think we have finished the opening and it is time for me to head for home.

Catch you next time.

if hxg5 then Nh5

I'm not so sure about the winning part - 5 queen moves in a row can't be good - but if we can say I've survived the Tromp part then that takes some pressure off.

Now steady on - I reluctantly accepted 'unfortunate calculation' but now it seems to have escalated to a 'boo boo' without any consultation. To clarify - I knew what I was doing and the risks involved, I just didn't expect it to get this far.

Also, I often wonder about the lines around 31 ..... Rh5 - do you find yourself doing this?

:) Fair point!


Also, I often wonder about the lines around 31 ..... Rh5 - do you find yourself doing this?
Moreso when I feel I have missed game changing opportunities. I think 31.Rh5 may have been more challenging although a quick look offers up c6!? and c7 (threatening to hand back a rook cold for a queen - don't know if it works) - perhaps we can look afterwards.

I had always planned Rh5 if we went down the line that happened - but then chickened out. After 32. c6 Nxc1 is just another line and leads to positions no better or worse than what we have. I feel better about it now.

You're very kind Sunshine. The record will show that without that eeer boo-boo ummm miscalculation, the result would have most probably been different.

Still I enjoyed my outing with the Tromp and learned a valuable lesson in not taking care of your rampant Queen which took the direction of the game away from where I wanted it.

Thanks. Let me know when you would like to square things up! :uhoh:

I'l be travelling in a couple of weeks so I won't start any games at the moment - but I've marked your name down and will come looking for you when the time is right.
