    Erm ... the choice of opening had little to do with the result of this game. 12.0-0-0? was just a bad move. Two moves later, he completely missed your threat of ...Bb4.

    Not really seeing any brilliance here.

    It wasn't like I wasn't threatening mate or other manoeuvres near the end.
    He may have made a couple of mistakes, but they weren't that obvious.
    The line I played is very solid, and I almost think I had an edge positionally.
    I have confidence and much practise in that variation. White's only try for a plus
    is the complications that arise after 4. B-B4!?, which is a position that most Black
    players, including myself, like to play, as it transposes to 3. B-B4, the 'main line'.
