    Again, for the third time in three games, I am black. This is a match from our local league.

    My opponent was slightly weaker than those I usually have to play in the league but considerably stronger than I was two years ago, so it felt like my efforts to improve might be slowly paying off. Though granted my opponent did make a lot of errors under pressure.

    Any comments welcome, especially where you think my commentary is wrong.

    The opening was similar to my last game, and I remembered the advice from this thread http://www.redhotpawn.com/board/showthread.php?subject=Another_game%2C_another_dodgy_sacrifice.&threadid=160887 whilst playing. That's why I was looking for the fork on e4. 😀

    I don't get 6...Nbd7. Why not put it on c6 and play ...e5 right away? Plus that leave the Bishop on c8 open.
