Last Move: 9. a3

Contents


Our Pawn at d5 is still being threatened by the pawn at c4, but it is protected by pawn at e6. Our Knight at e4 is threatened by Ze's Bishop and Queen, but is protected by our pawns at d5 and f5. Our Bishop is threatened by Ze's a3 pawn, which forces us to exchange or retreat it. Also, since Ze castled his c3 Knight is no longer pinned and is free to move.

At this juncture, we need to decide whether to exchange pieces, retreat, or formulate a suitable counter-threat. Some of our options are listed below to get things started.

Please take the time to familiarize yourself with some common middlegame tactics as well.

Also, please don't be too hesitant to suggest your own move in this section. Just use * to begin a line and add your idea, even if you aren't familiar with notation, or don't feel comfortable updating the boards/suggestions yourself, there are plenty of us that will be more than willing to set them up for you (and keep everything organized) ßrigaderant

Speculative Move: 9. a3 Bd6
  • Retreats our Dark Bishop to safety, however Ze gains tempo and can begin to force us to respond to his game. Has both advantages and disadvantages, we're vulnerable to a pawn push c5, but we also control e5 and h2. ßrigaderant
  • I like this move (even though it's defensive), because it also sets us up to do a Qh4 and Bxh2 at some point in the future, and start hard charging for the king. (although now that I've typed that, I'm getting more worried as we get into midgame that Ze is snooping around over here...) 66.47.159.86 12:14, 7 July 2006 (PDT) (aka Mike)
  • what is blacks' response to 10. cxd5? I see nothing good here. Kingpatzer 12:15, 7 July 2006 (PDT)

Speculative Move: 9. a3 Bxc3
  • Possibly the best of the exchange variations, although we're exchanging our (slightly more valuable) dark bishop for his (slightly weaker) Knight, however we maintain tempo and control his next move (most likely bxc3, but there may be alternatives). ßrigaderant
  • not "possibly" definitely. Simply the only move that doesn't leave black in a pssive position after white blows up the center. Kingpatzer 12:16, 7 July 2006 (PDT)
  • Yeah, I can't believe Ze didn't do 9. cxd5. Bxc3 capitalizes on his goof and brings us closer to parity. I wonder if he's toying with us or if he's just not trying or not very good? Jeff
  • But what happens if he doesn't use bxc3 to recapture? Is Bxe4 decisive? (Each of us has lost a piece, and has a piece threatened, so it's still an even exchange) .. ßrigaderant

Speculative Move: 9. a3 Nxc3



  • Another version of the exchange variation, which has the added benefit of exchanging a Knight for a Knight. However, Ze can choose to recapture either the Bishop or the Knight, which is a slight disadvantage to us. ßrigaderant
  • I see this move as similiar to Bxc3, except it gives Ze the choice of taking our Bishop or our Knight. If he chooses to take the Bishop, our night is still in jeopardy, forcing a retreat to e4 and giving him the next move. This is identical to Bxc3, except we waste a move. If he takes the Knight, our Bishop if forced to retreat, giving Ze greater position in the middle and still gives him control. Shadowcrash 12:04, 7 July 2006 (PDT)
    • I agree .. I was just sticking this out here to get the ball rolling. When things (editing en mass) calm down, I'll stick this in the dumpster unless someone proposes keeping it here. ßrigaderant
  • Nxc3 is a subtle, but very real, blunder. after 10. axb4 the half-open A file is going to be heavily exploited to black's regret. Kingpatzer 12:17, 7 July 2006 (PDT)

Last Move: 9. a3
  • I would like to keep the queen pointed up the middle while allowing the bishop to aplly pressure to the diagonal. d5 is vulnerable as well as e4.
    • Also potentially allows for us to respond to Ne5 with Bf6 .. ßrigaderant
  • as with Bd6, what's the response to cxd5, besides tears? Kingpatzer 12:18, 7 July 2006 (PDT)
  • I see three responses to cxd5, but we need to evaluate all of ze's options .. he's shown us in past moves (as well as this one) that he makes moves based on something that we cannot understand (for good or bad) ßrigaderant .. none of us proposed a3 during the last discussion .. that said:
9. .. exd5 maintains material exchange, but isolates our pawns at d5 and f5.
9. .. Nxc3 10. bxc3 Qxd5 might look a bit better, but deserves further analysis.
  • I think you mean 9. ... Bd7 10. cxd5 Nxc3 11. bxc3 Qxd5
9. .. c5. Let him have the pawn. He has a myriad of responses and we'll end up a pawn down, but what move can we make on 10. to capitalize on this?
  • So... 10. cxd5 exd5 11.Nd5? Salmancini
  • Think it loses for us. 11. Nd5 Qxd5 12. Bc4 pins our Queen .. so we're losing a pawn unless there's another option here. ßrigaderant

Last Move: 9.a3
  • Mostly included for completeness, though it keeps pressure on Ze's knight and doesn't clutter our queen --AtteSmythe 12:01, 7 July 2006 (PDT)
  • Ze's next move would probably be b4, capturing our Bishop. Shadowcrash 12:05, 7 July 2006 (PDT)
  • How would we respond to 10. b4 ? 87.74.55.84 12:04, 7 July 2006 (PDT)
  • I can't really SEE a good response to 10. b4 .. one of the reasons why we avoided being forced or voluntarily moving Ba4 for the last several moves. Another potential candidate for dumpster in a few hours. ßrigaderant
  • clear blunder. Kingpatzer 12:19, 7 July 2006 (PDT)
