    It's always interesting to play a person who builds their position from the edges inward. In our first encounter, I got over-extended and paid for it. In the 2nd, I was not as behind in development and made him pay for letting me have too much central control.

    I got revenge with the Black pieces.

    There's no good defense against Qf1/g1. White resigned.

    Hi Big Dog.

    This St.George Attack was part of my OTB rep for a good while.
    Keeping the King in the centre and throw the Kingside pawns at White as in your game.

    But I found early a4's by White were unsettling and when facing it as White I played early
    a4's and got some good games. It got to the stage where I stopped playing b5 but b6 instead.

    This is one. Alan is hotly tipped to be Scotland's next GM. This was after the lunch
    break where a few pints were sunk. I can hold my beer better than Alan.

    my first "serious" game in RHP was against a person that likes to play any kind of openings from the edge to the center.

    I had never played to someone like him (or her?)

    A played with him another game, that time I also played from the edge, but that is another adventure.
