  1. Interesting game, well done.

    In most lines … Qa5 is easily met by Rb1, but here it’s the fact that White has played Be3 that causes the problems: the pawn on a3 is no longer protected, and after Rb1 Qxa3 Black is again threatening … Nb4. The theme goes back to the 1940’s: see issue 5 of the newsletter (glad you like it btw!).

  2. Thanks Seán! I actually had a flick through the newsletters to see if I could find a position similar to the game, but missed the issue 5 one – partly because I was looking for lines with a white g3. Nice to hear the game gets some bit of a seal of approval though! 🙂
