    Game 3268661

    Domination - although I did miss the completely amazing 18.Nxd5+!! I'm still happy about finding 14.Bc5!!

    The second edit was to add another exclamation point to my 14th move - because Fritz said so, damnit!

    "9.dxc6! Touche" -Fritz 9. Are you kidding me? Who programmed "touche" into Fritz's comments?

    Your opponent didn't play particularly well. 3... a6, 7... f6, and 8... c5 were just bad-if he wanted to give you tempi, taking on f4 would have been better (of course he couldn't do it so many times). Congrats on the win, though.

    Anytime a game only lasts 18 moves somebody had to play poorly.

    I liked 11 Bxg8! But I wouldn't have played it because:

    1. I usually don't trade a developed piece for an undeveloped one.
    2. I don't think Black would have ever been safe castling... no good place for Knight.
    3. I would have done Qd5, which probably would have been a more complicated way to get the same result.

    You played well.

    Im thinking of adding the KG to my repetoire for its surprise value. What would be a good book??

    The only decent response to the KG is 2...e5xf4. This is estabilished theory. What your opponent DID play was complete rubbish.

    What are you talking about? There's nothing wrong with 2...d5. But agreed, black played badly, starting with his second move.

    not necessarily starting from move 2, but move 3
