"In Bedingbedang - barselona RHP 2008 move 4 why would white play fxe3
(creating unprotected double pawns) and not Qxe3?"
I’m glad and I’m sad you brought that game up.
Usually I have chess writers luck. A game falls into my lap and it all
flows well. The bad moves are spotted and it wraps itself up all neat.
This game was going that way until I spotted a dead jammy move.
“Why did that move have to be there. Everything was going just perfect.”
The notes were writing themselves.
Originally I was going to show the whole game, It has some instructive moments
for the 1400-1800 lads. but…
Bedingbedang - barselona RHP 2008
To answer the question about why White took doubled e-pawns….
…by playing 16fxe3 here.
At this stage of the proceedings it’s 6 and two 3’s.White is a piece and position down.
But trying to get inside the lad’s head.
I say he opted for 16. fxe3 because after 16.Qxe3.
Black can play 16…Qxe5 and the Queens are off.
These lads play to a fighting finish. It’s Checkmate or bust.
With the Queens on there is always a chance. Always.
(wait for the next blog for some classic examples. here is just a wee taste
of some games I won’t be using..)

WillieNelson (1455) - Daving (1388) RHP 2010
Watch this and be impressed. Anything can happen with the Queens on
and of course the King never leaves the board.

And that was the games I will not be using. I have some brilliant 'Oh No!'
games for the next blog.
