I really liked the play in this game. I recently lost to a game where 6.kf1 was played however this one I felt I was on the edge but always in control. the only way to play the traxler. I had a mate a move or two earlier which I overlooked.

The game I lost was a first for me on playchess . I was accused of cheating since my play was so perfect.... I became mad and ended up off track and dropping a piece.

    dear takchess, thank you for your direct post at my blog days ago. yes, i always check your blog. it is very good. where to begin?:

    first, while i aught to rank sort my links to knights and other by degree of how much i read their stuff, and who i comment to, who comments back to me in response (i.e. degree of affinity and relational strenght), i have mine set up by order added, which is ok for now, so i get to you after tempo, worm, blue, dutch, generalkaia, etc. suffice to say, im meticulous with keeping up with everyone, and youll always be there. :)

    i play the KG as white, as ive told you before, so find it hard to comment, since while i am good in the opening if not a bit advanced for my 1575/1625 elo depending on site and mental weather, a bit advanced in my overall annectdotal knowledge of stuff, if not openings i do NOT play, my first chess mentor told me NOT to study openings.

    im right at the point now that i need a reporatore, and since i play 1.Nf3 mixed with 1.c4, and 1.d4, with many transpostions, my chess coach told me to play only 1.e4 for now to force myself to play for the initiative, and to play gambits! of course, i check some stuff on my CB9 and at chessBase.com on line database, such as when blk plays early Be7 in the KG, but mostly try to build my tree first without books or protocal, knowing ill find the land mines. i did this with my caro and french, so confide in that.

    dutch told me how to set up my blog to avoid that awefull &^$%# spam, and i did, only i misunderstood the setttings. my goodness! i wrote like ten persons one week, and oddly never heard back, i ready everybodys stuff, and make sensible comments...

    so tempo wrote me at my direct personal email (add 'at cablespeed dot com to my name here: 'transform' and add 'ation' after my name and you will have it), and told me what had happened to my comments, and i quickly fixed it. thanks for the heads up.

    so a concussion set me back, AND i started dating a russian woman from moldovia, and the rest is history now! so now i am .... and have too much going on... and go on vacation in two days for mountain climbing here in washington state, up to the glaciers and beyond...

    to be accused of cheating is the highest honor in online chess. right after i did my first 10,000 problems at CTS, i had played no chess, got on line after months of only study, and destroyed someone 300+ over me and was accused of cheating. i just whipped out moves. glad to hear that it works for you. dont let it fluster you. good show.

    i have a new post, with some nice photos and captions!

    warmest regards, david

    a> You played according to book; your opponent missed the correct book line, and that is why he lost. 0. QA4 is a well-known mistake. Correct is D6, transposing into the main line.

    thank you both for the comments. a>
    didn't realize the shift in the main line I like my opponent did would of played the queen check I will have to look closer.
