First of all, I would like to say that I was very happy to finally see started a discussion board on chess! It was the one topic that was lacking in TMF.About myself,I am a very enthusiastic stock investor/chess player from Canada,my chess rating hovering around 2000,which puts me in the expert level. Not surprisingly,I was curious to take a peek on TMF's first battle,and came up with a few comments that might be helpful:6.Nd4? is a creative attempt, but unfortunately would have been refuted by 6. ... N:d4 7.Q:g4 Nc2+After 10....Bd6,an interesting move was 11.Nb5! Qb8 (11....c:b5 12.Q:a8 should win) 12.N:d6+ Q:d6 13.d316...f:e6(opening the file for the rook on f8) seemed better.At that point Black's position was far superior in development(plus the extra pawn),but then...17....B:c4? was unnecessary.If trying to capitalize on the passed pawn, a rook on d8 first is a must,although the piece sac is still optimistic.
