    This was against Nimzowitsch defense. 2...d6 by black seems is an unusual move. I like 11.Bb5+, seems the best move in the game.

    Hi Vishy.

    Looks like a Philidor set up from Black.
    Good game 11 Bb5 was the shot.
    Here.


    You played 12.h3

    I see a Queen on d6 giving a mate and an unprotected Queen on a5.
    Any ideas.....

    Edit:
    11 h3 was OK. That was was your good move.
    You stick that in your back pocket and then look for a better move.

    Ok, I did not see this at all! I guess this is called "blindness" due to excitement of having a good position. So, Qd2 seems good..so one variation could be Qd2 Ke6, Bc4 Ke7, and leads to mate or Kf6 and Nd5+. So, seems queen is lost!!

    Good game! While I like the variation you've both gone through, the original is appealing for it's no nonsense mate

    It's always in the eye of the beholder.


    I like Qd2 unpinning the c3 Knight and threatening mate and at the same
    time the now unpinned Knight is threatening a check winning the Queen
    which was pinning the Knight. Poetic justice.

    One move with two strong threats. Then you know you are in total control.

    h3 was fine, Black played Nf6 and got mated.
    However White storms in after Nh6 with wins everywhere.
    11.Bb5+! set it all up.

    Perhaps 6...Be6 or Be7 was better. But still an impressive win!!.
