Lesson 4: take opportunities when they come, the king needs space as well as defence.

Hey Trent, thanks for the games and insights. Reading your lessons had my mind revisiting Simon Webb's book, "Chess for Tigers". A very helpful little book for putting all things in perspective.

Lesson 5: Again take opportunities against much higher players:

Parker - Bolens

1.d4 Nf6 2.f3 e6

I prefer ... c5 or ...d5.


3.e4 Nxe4

This is totally unsound. "Taking opportunities" is one thing, wild sacs are quite another. Black gets only two pawns for his piece, and also loses a lot of time. Although White's K is somewhat displaced, he gains quick development to go along with the extra piece. 3... d5 would be a favorable French because of White's wasted move f3.


4.fxe4 Qh4+ 5.Ke2

5.Kd2 avoids dropping the P with check. Then 5... Qxe4 6. Nf3 followed by gaining more tempi against the Q. This means that in some lines, White can return the piece for pawns and have a big development lead.


5... Qxe4+ 6.Kf2 c5 7.Nf3

7. Nc3, and if ...Qxd4+ 8 Qxd4 cxd4 9. Nb5 regaining one P, and without the Qs there is no attack. Or 7... Qf5+ 8. Nf3 cxd4 9. Bd3 Qc5 10. Ne4 Qb6 11. Rf1 d5 12. Neg5 with possibilities of Nxf7 in some lines as well as castling by hand with Kg1.

Lesson 4: take opportunities when they come, the king needs space as well as defence.

1.d4 Nf6 2.f3 g6 3.e4 d6 4.Nc3 Bg7 5.Be3 O-O 6.Qd2 e5 7.Bd3

White needs to play 7. d5. Black could have replied 7... Ng4 8.fxg4 exd4 spoiling White's pawn structure, or 7... exd4 8. Bxd4 Nc6 9. Be3 d5 seizing the initiative.


7... Nc6 8.d5 Ne7

8... Nd4. May as well seize a central square while you can. It is not well placed on e7, although in many KID positions it's unavoidable.


9.Nge2 c6 10.O-O-O cxd5 11.exd5 b6

Could grab the Pd5 followed in some lines by ...Be6, Qa5. Also, 11. ... Qa5 then b5 has more point. For defensive ideas, maybe ...Re8 so Bh6 can be answered by ...Bh8.


12.h4 Bb7 13.Bh6 Rc8 14.Bxg7 Kxg7 15.h5 Nxh5 16.g4 Nf6 17.Qh6+ Kh8

This type of attack is very dangerous. Black hasn't taken proper steps against it and is quickly overwhelmed.


18.g5 Neg8 19.Qh4 Nh5 20.Ng3 f5 21.Nxh5 gxh5 22.Qxh5 Rc7 23.g6 h6 24.Bxf5 Rg7 25.Be6 Qe8 26.Qxh6+ Nxh6 27.Rxh6+ Rh7 28.Rxh7+
A good finish.
