    I thought this was the perfect follow-up to the win I posted. I thought playing a3 before c4 would be a finess, and it was- for my opponent. The combination of ...f5 and the coming ...Bc5 is devastating, and since I know from experience that my opponent was more than equal to the task when it comes to converting the advantage, I saved us both time and threw in the towel.

    how about d6? does that give you time to reorganise albeit with losses

    Bxd6, and what has White gained?

    Well after Bxd6 white can play Nxd6 but its horrible. I looked at Nf2 instead of d6 where I think black wins the exchange for a pawn. Not immediately resignable but also horrible and I suspect the OP wanted to focus energies elsewhere ?
