Originally posted by ElmyrI am getting lessons from a fide master. He has shown ne how to win against Na5. I personally stuggle aganst Nd4. On youtube there is a lesson on how to beat Nb4. So I need him to show me how to go aganst Nd4.
I don't understand why you would ever play 5...Nxd5?!
5...Na5 and black has all the fun.
Still, a well played game, congrats. ^_^

I don't know about 5....Na5 that's what the GM's play
and they don't appear to play for fun anymore.
5...b5 or 5...Nd5 have their moments too.
The real fun kicks off with 4...Bc5 The Traxler instead of 4...d5.

Now at last Black pauses to find the mate. He sacs his Queen...} 21...a4 22. Bxf4 Nc2[/pgn]

I just finished this game in which my opponent played what I guess you could call a variation of the Fried Liver. I detest this opening and have fallen prey to it many times. If anyone is willing, I would appreciate some critique on how I defended in this game(sorry no fritz to tell me), perhaps some pointers on how better to play against it next time.
