A lesson learned in the Albin

  • 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e5
    The Albin counter-gambit has been my favourite choice vs. the Queens gambit lately... there is often action all over the board
    • 3. dxe5 d4
      The idea, Black's strategy revolves around this pawn, but the tactics that can come from this are plentiful
      • 4. f4 Bf8c5 5. a3 a5
        Preparing a home for the Bishop if needed, also discouraging the b4 push
        • 6. Ng1f3 Nb8c6 7. b3 Bc8f5 8. Bc1b2 h6 9. Ke1f2
          Perhaps tempting d3... "go on, you know you want to" but the pawn is stronger on d4
          • 9... Bf5g4
            ? This wasn't necessary, Ne7 completes development
            • 10. Qd1d3 Ng8e7 11. Nb1d2 Qd8d7 12. Nd2e4 Bc5a7
              Welcome home
              • 13. Ra1d1 O-O-O
                4 pieces attacking and 4 pieces defending the d4 pawn, all the while developing naturally
                • 14. h3 Bg4xf3 15. exf3 Ne7f5 16. g4 Nf5e3 17. Rd1e1 Qd7e7 18. h4
                  Stops the check, however Black had a trick...
                  • 18... Ne3c2
                    There is no Qxc2 due to a discovered check with d3 hitting the Queen, meanwhile the Rook is also hit, so
                    • 19. Re1e2 Nc2xa3 20. Kf2g3
                      Gets out of danger
