  • 1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. Nb1c3 e6 4. Ng1f3 f5
    I'm not familiar with this line. There's a hole at e5 but he's also opening up for an attack on the kingside.
    • 5. cxd5
      Not sure what the right continuation is here but the ideas from the QGD are no longer valid so I wanted to make sure I didn't lose a pawn.
      • 5... exd5 6. Nf3e5
        Maybe simple development here is better? I knew I wanted to get a piece on e5 at some point but I needed to finish my development first, I believe.
        • 6... Ng8f6 7. Bc1g5
          I think one reason I moved 6. Ne5 was that I hoped he'd bring his knight to f6 so I could get my black squared bishop out.
          • 7... Bf8e7 8. e3
            Mostly I'm following my understanding of Queen's Pawn openings here. Preparing for kingside castling.
            • 8... O-O 9. Bf1d3 Nf6e4
              I thought this was a good move for black.
              • 10. Bg5xe7

                • 10... Qd8xe7 11. O-O Bc8e6 12. Qd1b3
                  ? Stupid mistake immediately loses the exchange. I don't even know why I was so eager to get my Queen out there anyway. Be2 is better.
                  • 12... Ne4d2 13. Qb3c2
                    In addition to going down the exchange I now have to deal with a coordinated attack on my kingside with my pieces only partially developed. I should have lost from here.
                    • 13... Nd2xf1 14. Ra1xf1 Nb8d7 15. Ne5xd7
                      I didn't want to have to recapture with my d pawn and not be able to defend it. His kingside attack starts now.
