    Played this last night. Remember that my opponant was 459 points higher than me grading-wise. Comments welcome. (copy and paste it into winboard)

    [Event "League"]
    [Site "The place near the bingo"]
    [Date "20/03/06"]
    [Round "-"]
    [White "ME"]
    [Black "Him"]
    [Result "1/2-1/2"]

    1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 d5 4. Bf4 Bg7 5. Nf3 c6 6. e3 Nbd7 7. Rc1 O-O 8.
    c5 b6 9. b4 a5 10. a3
    {
    Maybe I should have played Qa4
    Only saw that in the after-game-analysis or whatever you want to call it.
    }
    10... axb4 11. axb4 bxc5 12. bxc5 Ra3 13. Be2
    {
    I thought after Bd3, then my knight was stuck (bishop would hang).

    So I played Be2
    }
    13... Qa5 14. Qd2 Nh5 15. O-O Nxf4 16. exf4
    {
    My opponent was saying that Bg2 is better, but I disagree (still)

    If Bg2 Nxg2 hxg2, then the h-file is useless when I castle
    or if fxg2 then my e pawn becomes a target.

    This way I have control over e5 and he has now a weakness on e7.
    }
    16... Nxc5
    {
    Apparantly winning a pawn but I have the surprising move..........
    }
    17. Nxd5
    {
    !!
    Now there are lots of possible lines but I always have the inbetween
    moves like Nxe7+ (if he plays Qxd2 or something like that)
    }
    17... cxd5 18. Qxa5 Rxa5 19. dxc5 Ba6
    {
    I wrote a question mark for him here because his bishop could be good.
    }
    20. Bxa6 Rxa6 21. Rfd1 e6 22. Nd4 Rc8 23. Nb3 Rac6 24. Rd2 Bf8
    {
    e5 wouldnt work for him because of Rxd5
    }
    25. Rdc2 Bg7 26. Rd2
    {
    My notation was R2D2... Haha

    My move was a droid from Star Wars... ok ill shut up
    }
    26... Rb8 27. Rd3 Bf8 28. g3 Rbc8 29. Kg2
    {
    He offers a draw and i snatch it up in a second.
    }
    1/2-1/2

    Good game, I agree about exf4. I like the commentary. We should play sometime.
