    ...and some days the bear gets you.

    I was way overdue, but even so, I completely missed this one:

    Maybe 7.e5 would have helped? It is the suggested move in a similar but different line.

    Yeah - Not a pretty thing to watch. Even the obvious 15. ... Ne4 will lose material, but may buy some time for black's queen to escape, assuming black wants to fight on this way.

    7. … e5 is a reasonable suggestion, but Black is OK in any event at that point. I should have given 7. … Nb4 a more serious look than I did, according to Komodo now that the game is over.



    My last move 14. ...g5 was just a blunder. Black's position was fine until I headbutted his fist.

    Oh dear, Queenie sticks out like a sore thumb there, and you've barricaded her flight path.
