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.
Originally posted by cmsMasterThe only decent response to the KG is 2...e5xf4. This is estabilished theory. What your opponent DID play was complete rubbish.
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?

Im thinking of adding the KG to my repetoire for its surprise value. What would be a good book??
Originally posted by QuixoticalWhat are you talking about? There's nothing wrong with 2...d5. But agreed, black played badly, starting with his second move.
