1. e4 e5 2. Ng1f3 Nb8c6 3. Bf1b5 Nc6d4
Bird's defense in the Spanish opening.
4. Nf3xd4 exd4 5. d3 a5
? arrogant of me. Planning to trap the white bishop with c6, b5, a4.
6. a3 c6 7. Bb5c4 b5 8. Bc4a2 Qd8f6
? Blocks the f6 from the knight, delays castling. At least the white king's knight isn't there so Bg5 is not an option.
9. O-O Bf8c5
Doesn't really get anywhere. In retrospect, g6 and Bg7.
10. f4 Ng8h6
?! Trying hard for initiative, and not to trap my own queen. Ne7 was better, then Ng6.
11. f5 Bc5b6
trying to find a useful diagonal for the bishop. All my pieces feel ineffective and weak.
12. Bc1xh6 Qf6xh6 13. Nb1d2 Bc8b7 14. Nd2f3 Bb6c7 15. g3
15... c5 16. c3 dxc3 17. bxc3 g6
trying to clear room for my paired bishops, but too little, too late.
18. f6 Qh6e3
Mainly to show attitude.
19. Rf1f2 O-O 20. Ra1b1 Bb7c6 21. Rb1b2 Rf8d8 22. Rb2e2 Qe3h6 23. e5 d5
to ease the pressure on f7, regardless or whether white captures or not.
