Missed Philidor's legacy!

  • 1. d4 Ng8f6 2. c4 e6 3. Ng1f3 Bf8b4
    This opening is called the Bogo-Indian defence... if a knight was on c3 instead of f3 it would have been the Nimzo-Indian
    • 4. Bc1d2 Bb4xd2 5. Qd1xd2 b6 6. g3 Bc8b7 7. Bf1g2 d6 8. Nb1c3 Nb8d7 9. O-O O-O 10. d5
      Now the chess starts.. Black decides whether to close the game (e6-e5) or keep it open (exd5)
      • 10... exd5
        I chose to keep it open largely to keep the Bishop active
        • 11. cxd5 Rf8e8 12. Nf3d4 Nd7c5 13. f3
          ? White may have had concerns for the e4 square, but this is an obvious mistake, as it drops the pawn on d5
          • 13... Nf6xd5 14. Nc3xd5 Bb7xd5 15. b4 Nc5e6 16. Nd4f5 Bd5b7 17. Qd2c3 Qd8g5
            ? This move seemed to look ok but 18. f3-f4 Qxf5 19. Bxb7 removes Black's Bishop, and makes the game more equal
            • 18. Bg2h3
              ? But instead, White made a mistake and allows...
              • 18... Ne6f4
                ... a strong move, exploiting the pinned g3 pawn whilst hitting an unprotected Bishop and threatening a royal fork on e2... something has to give
                • 19. Kg1h1 Nf4xh3 20. Nf5h4 c5
                  ? Rxe2 was better, there was no need to be concerned about the Queenside pawns yet
                  • 21. Ra1e1 Re8e3 22. Qc3d2 Qg5e5 23. Nh4g2 Re3a3 24. bxc5 dxc5 25. Re1d1 Qe5d4
                    Black says "Ok i'm winning, let's exchange Queens"
                    • 26. Qd2e1
                      White of course refuses
