    Hi Viv.

    A good game.
    If that was one of your first efforts at noting up a game then it's not too bad.

    A bit long in parts though. Try to use as few words as possible to get your point across.

    Phrases like:

    "....if he tries to attack my King's pawn, with the pawn just right of his King. "

    Can be easily replace with.

    "...if he plays 4.f4."

    Look at how Fred Reinfeld did it.
    Then It was all about the cost of printing of a book. Short short and sharp.
    Keep the cost down.

    And don't mention in the Chess forum you dislike playing against 1.d4.
    Now all you are going to get is 1.d4 being played against you. 🙂

    Yeah, I don't understand chess notation. I'll try to edit the post and cut it down.

    What? It seems like it won't let me edit.

    Well, I guess I better get it over with and learn chess notation.

    Always interesting to see the thought processes of others.
    I'm surprised GP didnt remind you to check all checks! 😉

    I agree, that was a good game and I enjoyed your analysis.
    (and I am not just saying that because I am a d4 player 😀

    Post mortem analysis will only help you become a better player.

    If you would like to play some Unrated games.. let me know.
    I'm not a great player but I enjoy the opening, and I would like to share my thoughts.

    Yeah, I would definitely like to play a non-rated game. I'll send you an invitation.

    EDIT:

    It says that you have a one game at a time limit. Whenever you're done, invite me.

    Thanx!

    And I guess as I post more around this forum, I'll find out what "check all checks" means.
